Hi cassie, you can email the blog owner, and let them know that they have pirated copywrighted content, and they need to remove it from their site. but, it can be a legal headache that isnt worth the time or cost to actually force them to.
Clayton had a good idea on how to deal with that a few months back. but, maybe someone from the staff can find it, I couldn't ( searched for almost an hour.)
basically there isnt much you can do without a lot of hassle.
One thing to realize though is that Google will not slap you. They have ways of knowing which one was posted first, so you will get credit as the original author. Also, it is something that does happen, and you can either focus on worrying about it, or just let it go, and focus on doing things right. These ripoff artists usually dont last long, and then their site is gone anyway.
