Blog Etiquette or Blogtiquette

Unfortunately there has been an up rise of bad behavior in the blog world lately. Honestly it is just bad taste to leave nasty comments about some one "anonymously" on someones blog. It just goes back to the old saying of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. While I was doing some research on this I found the Tip Junkies blog who offered some great in site on a few Bogtiquette rules to abide by:

1. Give credit where credit is due. If you saw a post, meme, idea, etc. that you
love and want to recreate on your blog – go ahead. Just be sure to give link
love to the person you blog jacked it from.


2. Do not attack people with negative anonymous comments. If you’re going to disagree with someone own up to it by linking your name otherwise don’t comment at all. Leaving negative comments anonymously is a cowardly thing to do. Obviously, you’re not going to agree with every post you read by every blogger – but allow others their opinion. It’s their blog and they can post what they want to. The purpose of comments in general are to continue the conversation, give encouragement, or thank the person for their hyperlink or thoughts.
