Blogging Etiquette

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

This shouldn’t really need to be said but just a quick reminder on the two most important rules of blogging etiquette …

  1. Always quote your sources, preferably with a link
  2. Don’t pass off someone elses work as your own

Like 99.9% of bloggers, I really don’t care if what I write is copied and posted elsewhere (as long as it’s not every post I write) but I do expect to see at least my name mentioned, if not a backlink.  I certainly don’t expect to see something I’ve written passed off as someone elses work, that’s just not on.

I might forget what day of the week it is half the time but even after … plucking a date out of the air … 3 years, 1 month and 5 days, I can still recognise my own writing.
There, I’ve got that off my chest, now let’s move on.  Thank you for your time.
