Blog Guidelines

First, Some Important Rules About Blogging.

1. Please, no last names, school names or addresses.
2. Do not link to your personal blog/journal from your school blog; you might reveal information on there that you don’t want to reveal on your school blog.
3. If you want to write your opinion on a topic, make sure you’re not going to be offensive to anyone as you write it.
4. Always make sure you check over your post for spelling errors, grammar errors, and your use of words.
5. Never disrespect someone else in your blog, whether it’s a person, an organization, or just a general idea. You don’t want someone making a stab at what you are passionate about; don’t do it to someone else.
6. Don’t write about other people without permission; if you can’t get their permission, use first names only. Never share someone elses last name.
7. Watch your language! We’re not at home, we are at school, this has to be at least remotely professional looking.
8. Make sure things you write about are factual. Don’t be posting about things that aren’t true.
9. Keep it education-oriented. That means that you probably shouldn’t discuss your plans for the weekend.

Basic Guidelines for Bloggers
  • Never offer any personal information including your last name, contact information, home address, phone numbers, school's name, e-mail address, last names of friends or relatives, instant messaging names, age, or birth date.
  • Never post provocative pictures of yourself or anyone else, and be sure any images you provide do not reveal any of the previously mentioned information. Always remember to look at the background of a picture too.
  •  Assume what you publish on the Web is permanent. Anyone on the Internet can easily print out a blog or save it to a computer.
  • Use blogging provider sites with clearly stated terms of use, and make sure they can protect the actual blogs, not just the user accounts, with password protection. (Even so, it's better to assume anyone can see it.)
  • Avoid trying to "outdo" or compete with other bloggers.
  • Keep blogs positive and don't use them for slander or to attack others.
