Ethical Blogging: Blog Integrity Goes Hand-In-Hand
Ode to the Every-Day Blogger
We bloggers blog for various reasons.
Some of us blog to feel connected to the world because we may be isolated geographically, or shut in due to poor poor health.
Some of us blog because we want to be heard. Most of us will never be on TV or quoted in the newspaper, and blogging technological gives us a voice.
Some of us blog for notoriety. We strive to reinvent ourselves as an authority on a topic, or we blog to further our careers for our chosen field.
Some of us blog just to make money. We scrape information from the net to keep the content flowing and the search engines happy.
But let us not forget in our quest to become rich or famous — keeping our integrity and self-respect. For without that we are nothing.
Most of us blog just for fun. The vast majority of bloggers fit into this category. They are the unsung heros of blogging who some blog snobs have the temerity to call the “noise“.
For shame. Remember this … without the “noise” you would be nothing, because without them who else would read you?
So be respectful to the every-day personal blogger, because they are the real bloggers in its purest sense. They have no agenda or reason to blog except for the shere joy of it.
That is their reward and your salvation.
