Responsible Blogging - Let's be the Change


The corridors are abuzz with dos and don’ts for bloggers. Now, isn’t that interesting?
While the world does look good and organised within rules, it puts spontaneity and creativity at risk. 
So instead of external regulations, why not bloggers create their own no-no’s and become Responsible Bloggers. 

After all the world believes our opinion. 

Here are the 7 principles and ethics that add to the blogosphere’s credibility

1. Check your facts
   A misstated fact is like a trip gone bad. It takes away a lot apart from your credibility.

2. Respect Copyright Law
    Your intellectual property matters to you more than your gold. So respect other’s too.

3. Consider the implications
    When you post something in the  blogosphere or social media, you’re laying a digital footprint in concrete - the Internet, and it never forgets. Do weigh the possible results of your work. It helps!

4. Give credit where credit is due
    There’s a lot in the name. So give credit wherever due.

5. Disclose sponsored posts
    Be honest and transparent with your readers and they’ll keep coming back to you. 

6. Be transparent with affiliate links
    Always use affiliate links as part of sponsored links to differentiate it from your original preferences.

7. Avoid “blackhat” methods
     Excess of anything is bad so be wise with your SEO. Non-ethical SEO practices do more damage that you can imagine.

     If you follow above principles, use the badge on your blog and tweet with 

#ResponsibleBlogging
