  2. 2. 5 Simple Blog Etiquette and Rules There are tons of blogs populating the internet and they are rapidly growing in number. People are saying and doing whatever they want in their blogs or the blogs of others. But respect and decency are sometimes nowhere to be found. While mean comments can sometimes be funny, if you want to be respected in the community, you should follow simple rules or blog etiquette. When quoting someone, make sure to link. If you will only be quoting a small section of the post, you need not to ask for their permission to do so. But you have to link back to the original post. This is not only proper and good blog etiquette as you can also use this to your advantage. www.bloggingtips.com

More often than not, their interest would lead them to checking your blog out and this could earn you backlinks as well as guest blogging opportunities in the future. Avoid reposting without permission. It is not fine to take the post of another blogger and put it into your own blog without asking for their permission first. Still it is not acceptable even if you link back to them. You might get into content duplicate issue. Apart from that, putting the entire post into your blog won’t give your readers any incentive to check the original post out. That means you are stealing the traffic that is supposed to go to the blogger. www.bloggingtips.com

Take the time in responding the comments on your blog. Responding to every comment added into your blog can take so much of your time. But if your readers are spending time writing out comments, you should at least respond to them. You can say thank you to them for leaving a comment but you can also do more than that. Make sure to read the comments and express a thoughtful response to it.

Many people will disagree with your post and they will tell you that. However, many bloggers are unable to handle such criticisms and react profanely. You should not do that. Respect the commenters whether or not they agree with your post. Never ever leave spammy comments on the blogs of others. Many people use blog commenting as a strategy to increase brand awareness, drive traffic and build back links. Though nothing is wrong with this, but if you are going to do it, make sure that you do it right. You have to take the time in reading the post you are commenting on and leave an insightful comment. www.bloggingtips.com
