Blogging Self Rules

I have compiled some self rules regarding the blogging. Please see if you could add up some more:

1. I am responsible for anything posted in my name.

2. I will not say anything on the blog I wouldn’t be willing to say in public or to an individual’s face.

3. I will not gang up on anyone. Points of view that do not mirror my own will be presented fairly.

4. I will not post personal information about other people without their permission.

5. I will only use first names (and last initial if necessary).

6. I will not copy/paste other blogs, but I will quote them and give credit where it is due.

7. I will stay on topic and will only post links that are relevant to the topic.

8. I will not link to inappropriate websites.

9. I will strive for ‘correct’ spelling and grammar. Errors will be corrected as soon as possible.

10. Divergent views will be supported. Bullying will not be tolerated.

11. I will always try to provide value.

13. I will always consider my commentors and readers the most valuable asset.

14. I will continue to learn new things about blogging.

15. I will stick to ethics and morals.

  1. @ Munaeem: But what if I can’t speak out a fact in public (due to my inner or outer weakness), then I shouldnt write it in my blog.

    I am asserting that I shouldnt be a hypocrite.

  2. “I will not say anything on the blog I wouldnt be willing to say in public or to an individuals face.”

    If we can substantiate our blog with facts, we can write anything. We should not make assertions.
