Like every other field there are blogging ethics too.
Some points from me:
- Always link back to the source. Readers hate stolen stuff.
- Be polite to everyone in the blogosphere.
Have any to add?
I will add few more:
-Do not spam other blogs.
-Spare a minute to comment a blog, it will help for the owner and will take only 1 minute.
- read the post before you comment. some people just comment without actually reading it
- and then what ^^ they have added
My 2 cents:
# Never publish a post just for money. Your readers will tell.
# Stay cool. Flaming others just to prove your point during an argument will only deteriorate your image as a blogger.
Research research and only write what is the truth. Do not assume what you THINK is the only gospel.
Have a personality. Seriously. You should put some of yourself into each and every post.
The hot topic in blogging ethics recently has been openly identifying paid or compensated posts.
If you are a controversial writer, keep within the means of not offending anyone. Do not bring out personal life of someone on the public scene by your blog post.
Cute topic. There is only one thing that pisses me off, and that is stolen content. I hate it when it happens to me, and I hate seeing blogs that do it to others. Paid editorials have been happening since the day newspapers were invented, and to this day many don't even have a clue that they are reading them.
