1. Write original articles. Do not plagiarize/steal/copy someone else’s content orideas. Putting a new spin on a subject is one thing, but downright copying someoneelse’s ideas is not right. If you can’t think of something to write about, don’t publishuntil you do.2. Give credit where credit is due. If what another blogger wrote inspires a post,make mention of the post, and create a link back to your inspiration.3. Check and recheck your grammar and spelling. Although some typos may slipthrough, try your hardest to provide a post with proper grammar and spelling. Yourblog is a reflection on you and your credibility. If need be, have someone proofreadfor you.4. If you allow comments, let your commenter’s know you have read what theywrote. A short thank you is sufficient; however, comment sections often end upbeing the “meat” of the post. If you’re not going to have time to answer comments,you may think of closing the comment section (turn comments “off”).5. If you prefer commenter’s do not get “off subject” (writing about an issueunrelated to the post), create a “comment rules’ page to inform your readersabout your desires. Either post a sentence above your comment section, or providea link to your comment rules. Comments often go off subject, so be prepared.6. If you leave a comment on another blog, try to add value to the post/topic.Saying “great post” is not value. If you can’t find something valuable to say, don’tcomment. Often two and three word comments will be considered as spam, andsubsequently deleted by the author. Try to avoid “off topic” comments unless youknow the blog author allows them. As a footnote, on this blog, I allow off topiccomments and questions.7. If you comment on other blogs, do not alienate the author with derogatorycomments. Your comment is a reflection of you. Negative comments can decreaseyour chances of receiving visitors from other sites.8. If a reader/visitor contacts you via email or through your contact page,answer the email as soon as possible.9. Do not “spam” another blogger or blog. Overusing the name of anotherblogger in comments and/or posts is often considered “content” or “commentspam”.10. Prior to publishing your post, check your links. Consistently providing dead or404 links is frustrating to your readers, and can lead to a loss of credibility.11. When commenting, unless a link is relevant to the post, do not insert one.This is also considered “spam”, and most bloggers will avoid clicking on them.12. If someone visits your blog, and leaves a comment, make time to visit theirblog as well. It’s common courtesy. If you cannot identify with their most currentpost, dig through their archives and find one you can leave a short comment on.13. If someone leaves a negative comment on your blog, do not feel obligated toleave it in your comment section. A negative comment can change the dynamics ofthe other valuable comments. Delete it or mark it as spam. It’s your blog.14. Do not comment on another blog without reading the title and the completepost. A poorly written, off subject comment leaves others wondering “what arethey on?”, again, reducing your credibility.
