What Is a Blogging Code of Ethics?

There is no definitive answer to this question as there is no agreed upon code of blogging ethics. However, a number of principles that bloggers may want to adhere to include the following:

1. Be honest and accurate in your writing.

2. Respect the privacy of others and do not publish information that you know to be confidential without permission.

3. Do not post personal information about other people without their consent.

4. Do not post copyrighted material without permission.

5. Be careful when commenting on other blogs, as your comments may be seen as public speech.

6. Be considerate of your readers’ time and keep your blog posts to a minimum length.

When it comes to disclosing personal information, bloggers should always ask the individual if they want their information shared before publishing it online. Additionally, bloggers should take care not to disclose any confidential or sensitive information without first verifying that the individual in question is aware that their information is being shared and given the appropriate consent forms have been signed (if necessary). Online privacy is a very important issue, so it is important for bloggers to be respectful of other people’s privacy rights while still being able to write freely about their experiences online.
