Here’s the great thing about being online, and having a blog – no rules. No one to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, and no one to cramp your style. Hurrah!
Yet, there are some unwritten rules that I think is basic common courtesy and ethics that makes sense to be adopted or borne in mind, as bloggers, we plot our journey through the ever-changing digital landscape. I don’t like preaching things like this and coming off sounding holier than thou but I do believe that in the challenging and now, competitive world of blogging and online media some basic common courtesies and ethics get lost or overlooked.
I’d like to just remind you of 5 today. This was prompted by a rather unpleasant episode that happened to me last weekend, of image copyright infringement, so yeah, guess I’m preaching to the choir, since those who did piss me off probably won’t read this 😛
If you blog, then you will be able to resonate with these I’m sure. Perhaps it sounds like I’m stepping on your toes 😛 If you don’t and are a regular blog reader, perhaps this might give you an insight into putting your trust in a blogger, especially a review blogger who may influence decisions you make on what to buy or use. Feel free to add any other tips or reminders in the comment box 🙂
