Is taking someone's blog article and putting it on my blog plagiarism, if the words aren't changed and I put the name of the person on the bottom I'm asking legally, not ethically.

    It's quite flattering that someone thinks your blog is good enough to have on their site but if you're not happy you could ask them to take it down. Personally, I would seek to ensure that you are cited as the author, and make sure there's a link back to your website and/or blog within your article.

    If you're a serious blogger, you might want to approach them to see if they'd like you to write for them regularly on a paid basis.
