Top Tip Tuesday 7

It's the first 2011 tip but we are already at Tip 7!  A great thanks to Louise who has a few more tips for us.  After that who wants to give us a tip?  Eh?  Email me at byutatortot@gmail.com.  Enjoy this next tip!

Be polite, honest and act with integrity…blogging netiquette

Today’s tip is short and sweet, but goes a long way towards helping you make and keep loyal blog friends.

  • If you take a freebie off a blog, say thank you
  • Don’t copy or take anything unless you have permission
  • If you copy something and re-use it, give the original person the credit (a link, as a minimum, is nice). Nobody likes plagiarism.
  • If you make a mistake, apologise
  • If you don't know, say so
  • If you wouldn't want your post to be shown in the national news or if you wouldn't want your family to see it, then don't post it.
  • Always think twice before publishing potentially hurtful remarks, even if they are true. Just because you CAN publish something, doesn’t mean that it is morally correct to do so. Remember the old saying “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.

Can you think of anything else which should be blogging netiquette?
