Remove Almost Bourdain - Important

Dear all friends,

Almost Bourdain by Ellie was a very popular blog few years back. She stopped blogging actively in May 2012 and the blog was closed down almost half a year ago due to her own reasons. Recently, the blog has been revived.

Don't be happy. It's NOT Ellie there. 


Ellie's screen shot of the "new" Almost Bourdain in Sept 2013 It is Ellie's old posts..... resurrected
Someone knew how popular this blog was, and waited for the blogspot name to be available again and snapped it. The new and old Almost Bourdain operate with the same URL and so, all the links from everywhere who have once linked to Almost Bourdain will still land on the homepage. This person also posted old blog posts from Almost Bourdain into the 'new' Almost Bourdain. To be able to post it word for word, with the same format , the person must have downloaded them long ago, in anticipation for this moment. But just to tell you Ellie's is not the person behind Almost Bourdain now. It's someone else. Ellie has written to the blog owner and the posts were removed, and the blog's new owner deleted it. But Google allows the blog to be revived by the same owner within a short period of time. Few days later the stolen recipes were replaced with a pretty girl's face. The blog is republished so that all redirecting and landings will still go there. The thief just wants to lock the blogspot and the traffic.

As seen on 27th September 2013
In order, not to let this person gain from Ellie's work, and traffic from the old Almost Bourdain's readers, PLEASE DELETE ALL LINKS to Almost Bourdain.

All recipes that you once tried and linked to Almost Bourdain, DELETE THE LINKS

If you followed Almost Bourdain and linked up, REMOVE IT

It's NOT a coincidence that this person became interested in the same blogspot, as this person originally intended to republish Ellie's work there, word for word, without her permisson. It's a planned, awaited scheme. If you loved the Almost Bourdain by Ellie, If you were thankful for her sharings, Please do this for her. DELETE and REMOVE


Ellie's  posts, but it's not Ellie

No need to go to the blog and give the new owner a piece of your mind. The new owner will be happy that you visited.

  5. I don't think you can do that. The problem with internet, or social media etc. YOU CANNOT KILL what you have already created. It stays there forever. And this person, intentionally or not, would just benefits from the work of Almost Boudine.

    The only thing we can hope is, this person has decency and PRIDE and not sponged on someone else's work.

    I am quite sure I am correct. BUT please do check with someone who is an expert in internet/digitial publishing. Perhaps there is a tool that can REMOVED all Almost Boudine's work.

    1. hi cindy, i am definately not an expert here :) but doing our part to help to make everyone aware that the blog is a fake almost bourdain. We do not wish to see anyone getting fooled thinking that it is still ellie on the blog and taking whatever advantage of ellie's previous works. thx for your input, point noted.

  6. I just took a look at the website ... need to know :) ... and this person is from the Netherlands. This person is using the website to earn advertising money. Do take a look at the website.

    AND I think this person is Chinese and not Japanese. So perhaps someone can think of some clever tricks? Need an expert to jammed the links, perhaps?
