Blog and Respect

What are you doing?
One of the most popular questions in Networking, there are even communities build on this question.
So nowadays I tell people I am a recruiter, trainer, and blogging about w3recruitment…
So are you a writer? No, I am not, I blog.

A blog is a platform where you can share your thoughts, news, a summary of what is happening, or a review of what happened before. How:
Lee & Sachi LeFever, commoncraftshow.com, made a cool video about this topic.

Blogs are out there, to be viewed by everyone.

It is NOT a Diary with a lock on it. So beware….

In order NOT to make blogs a caveman sort of area,
O’Reilly and others came up with a list of seven proposed ideas to prevent that:
1. Take responsibility not just for your own words, but for the comments you allow on your blog.
2. Label your tolerance level for abusive comments.
3. Consider eliminating anonymous comments.
4. Ignore the trolls.
5. Take the conversation offline, and talk directly, or find an intermediary who can do so.
6. If you know someone who is behaving badly, tell them so.
7. Don’t say anything online that you wouldn’t say in person.

Actually this code of conduct is telling us to act normal, even more it’s telling us to act with respect for the other.

If someone is mentioning you in his blog, do read the posting, and think before any comment.
A blog offers a comment space: Use it. If the comment space is not the right place, get in touch directly or via an intermediary.

My opinion of a blog, you can write anything down, but try to be sure you are not out there to hurt people, why should you anyway.
Try to blog with respect. So I do.
