As an online creative sometimes it’s easy to feel as though you’re going around in circles. You come up with a unique idea and then you see it slowly pop up everywhere… It can be disheartening and make you feel pretty low. Here are some tips for getting over the feeling of being copied online.
Remember it’s flattering
As cliche as it sounds remembering that it is flattering that someone has seen your work and loved it enough to mimic it is pretty darn nice. It just means your work is so good someone else has taken inspiration from you.
Someone else has probably done it before you
It really is a circle. Don’t get cocky thinking you’ve come up with something. The internet is a huge place and chances are someone has done something similar to what you’ve created in the past!
You still have YOU
Whether it’s a simple post idea or a whole website cropping up that’s similar to your own it’s important to remember that they are missing one thing.. YOU. No matter what you’ll still have your authentic voice and style so nobody can copy you 100%
