Blogger Etiquette-A Guide for Beginners

Blogger Etiquette-A Guide for Beginners - When you first join the very large community of bloggers and start blogging this will be a trial and error period for you. Here you will to figure out things accepted and ignored in the blogosphere. Take it Guaranteed that Bloggers are almost highly educated, highly mannered, master and some times an authority on the subject matter. That’s why High morals, exemplary etiquettes, selflessness and co-operation is always found in the nature of most of bloggers. Though every one is a smart blogger but the bloggers community is also smart and has some unwritten etiquettes and every blogger is expected to follow these –

Always Original – Always post original articles written by you and never post an article copied from another blog, website or some elsewhere. However, you can do it with the permission of the copy right owner. If you do it without permission you may face legal complication.

Give Adequate credit- Some times you need some quotation, a snippet or an image for making your post contents attractive. In such case it will be better to contact the owner for permission and if it is not possible to contact, give the owner adequate by mentioning his ownership in your post.
Leave a comment – Always try to write a comment on the post you read. It will be very helpful to the writer.

Never hesitate to write adverse comment – Some bloggers have principally decided not to post ad adverse comment. In my view they must not do so because an adverse comment if it is unbiased, is more important than a favorable comment because it works as a real guide to the writer and give him a chance to improve and rectify mistakes. A thoughtful comment that shows you’ve read the blog post means much more to the blog owner.

Avoid Instigated comments – Some bloggers know each other and work as a group. They always comment on the posts of each other whether they like it or not. If no comment is received from a reader other than these, the comments will be considered as instigated comment.

Always post a real and standard comment – Comments like “A good Post”, “Afine Article”, “I like It” are non standard comments and even Google will not accept these as comments. A real and standard comment means mention some thing about what you have just read, no matter you liked it or not. Always write your real opinion.

A Token of love – if you find a new blog, link to it, Every one has been a new blogger at one, checking  page views and follower count daily to check whether or not some one  is reading his blog. A little help is always a well-received kind gesture and perhaps, they might return the favor.

Be Prompt to Reply your readers – No matter how many queries you have received always extend a word of thank thanks to the lovely people who read your blog, Please always take the time to reply back to those who posted a comment, liked, tweet or send an email to you.

Never post Anonymous Comment – Always mention in your comments that who you are ?  a comment with your blog URL will be better because you may receive visits on your blog in return.

  1. Not to post adverse comment is not good. In my view they must not do so because an adverse comment if it is unbiased, is more important than a favorable comment because it works as a real guide to the writer and give him a chance to improve and rectify mistakes. A thoughtful comment that shows you’ve read the blog post means much more to the blog owner.

  2. To Post an anonymous too comment is also a sign of poor etiquette. Why anonymous. do not you have an identity. If yes, use it while you say some thing. Why to hide it ? In my view we must have a courage to disclose while commenting that Who I am ?

  3. सही लिखा है हर क्षेत्र में कुछ व्यहारिक कयदे तो होते ही हैं जिन्हें मानना शालीनता मानी जाती है ।

Then writing genuine comment is very much required, and then as you mentioned that every blogger should respond to every comments, like, etc.

    Though I am really surprised to see that you yourself is not following those. Did not found any response to the comments previously posted on this blog only.
