Blogging Etiquette 101

I’ve noticed some people freely write without considering the following so I felt I should make a reminder to some.

It is best not to use someone’s Full Name unless they’ve given you permission to do so would be the only exception.  First names are fine, especially if that’s what someone is known by anyway.  Also, I usually just call people by their user names unless they tell me their first names.

If you are talking about somebody in an entry, it’d be nice to ping someone so they know they are being talked about instead of clicking around and randomly finding themselves being talked about this whole time without knowing.

Blogging is for people to vent frustrations, not to insult a writer personally.  There’s a difference between criticism and cyber bullying.

Please know the difference and do not mix up one with the other.

If you have an issue with someone, it would be more resolved if you spoke directly to the person and not behind their backs.  If you don’t want to be the bigger person, learn to ignore someone and don’t be a hypocrite about it.

Thank you.
