10 Commandments of Blogging

A reader recently called one of my blog posts "narcissistic." Which I'll interpret as "Holly, you're doing a great job at conveying your thoughts!" per the definition of "blog": an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page.

But one never wants to become too cocky, so perhaps a few blogging guidelines would be good for me. The following "Ten Blogging Commandments" are from Evangelical Alliance website. (Thanks, Brooke, for telling me about them!)

Ten Blogging Commandments
1. You shall not put your blog before your integrity.

2. You shall not make an idol of your blog.

3. You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin.

4. Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog.

5. Honour your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes.

6. You shall not murder someone else’s honour, reputation or feelings.

7. You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind.

8. You shall not steal another person’s content.

9. You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger.

10. You shall not covet your neighbour's blog ranking. Be content with your own content.
