To the staff at Daily Hive, stop copying my content.
For a large publication, I find it shameful that you would need to resort to copying content from a small blog such as mine.
You have the resources to create good content and yet because of sheer laziness or ineptitude you need to resort to taking ideas from my blog.
I created this blog post, “Where to Buy Korean Cream Cheese Garlic Bread Vancouver” in May and in July, you published “Korean-style garlic bread: Where to get it in Metro Vancouver.”
You mention the exact same three places that I noted in my post.
The Korean Garlic Bread at T&T was widely popularized on social media but the ones at Snow Angel Cafe and Daily Delicious were not.
The only reason why I know Snow Angel Cafe and Daily Delicious had Korean Garlic Bread was because my follower sent me a private message and told me so. See the following screenshot.
After going through the list of places she noted, I filtered out places that were home-based businesses.
I initially only had T&T on my post but I ended up revising the post and adding Snow Angel Cafe and Daily Delicious to it.
Snow Angel Cafe and Daily Delicious are small mom and pop shops with DIY social media accounts. It was not widely know that they had Korean Garlic Bread.
I personally contacted Snow Angel Cafe and Daily Delicious to confirm their offerings.
Also, Daily Hive, in your article you noted the price of $5.99 for the Daily Delicious Korean Garlic Bread.
I noted $5.99 in my article because I had confirmed with the bakery. See the screenshot below. I doubt that you did. You just copied the pricing from my article.
The fact that you choose to use “Daily Hive Staff” to show who wrote the article suggests that there may have been some self-awareness that the content you published was not authentically curated.
Daily Hive, stop copying my content. Change your culture of copying off other publications. You copying off a small blog is a form of bullying. Get your act together or get better writers who actually know the industry well.
