Please don't plagiarize. And if you are a registered dietitian, especially do not plagiarize another RD's work. I work very hard on my On Nutrition columns for The Seattle Times. I choose my topics carefully, I make sure I have all my facts straight, and I try to write them in a way that is acessible to everyone, easy to read, informative and maybe even fun to read. So imagine my ire yesterday afternoon, I received an email from someone I don't even know (bless her), with the subject head "Think someone stole your article, Carrie!" Imagine how much my ire increased when I realized it wasn't some random blogger, but an RD.
I'll let you compare:
- My Seattle Times column (published September 21, 2014)
- The plagarized blog post (published September 29, 2014)
In more serious business, this week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. This week's links follow that theme:
- The importance of an early intervention.
- What not to say to someone with an eating disorder.
- We're clean eating our way to new eating disorders.
- How to talk to your daughter about fat. (Dietary fat, that is.)
- Eating disorders are a men's issue, too.
- Eating disorder awareness: Tips for supporters.
And the three On Nutrition columns I've written about eating disorders:
- How to help a college student with an eating disorder.
- Anxiety, desire for control can be at root of anorexia.
- When healthy eating becomes unhealthy obsession.
I'm excited to be at a two day motivational interviewing workshop today and tomorrow (fellow RDs, I'm sure you know about Molly Kellogg and how fabulous she is). I hope to do a good bit of cooking on Sunday for the week ahead, and maybe squeeze some vegetable garden cleanup amongst my, ahem, writing projects. Have a fabulous weekend!
P.S. On Monday, I'll post about my new job.
