That’s not the case, at all.
A blog can be anything we want it to be and we can act however we choose while online.
To me, blogging etiquette equates to taking the time to writing responsibly, showing respect to other bloggers and caring how I am viewed in blogosphere.
When I wrote the post, Blogging Etiquette, – The Unwritten Rules, I expanded on what I saw as blogging etiquette and included things such as,
- Write original articles
- Check and recheck your grammar and spelling
- Give credit where credit is due
- If you comment on other blogs, do not alienate the author with derogatory comments.
- If you allow comments, let your commenters know you have read what they wrote (even a short thank will do)
Just as there’s a certain decorum in real life situations, and all of our actions can have consequences (good or bad), the internet is no different. It’s just the audience is much larger.
Based on what you see in blogosphere, here is your chance to write the wrongs.
If a book was being written on blogging etiquette, what you you like to see included?
