    I thought the first rule of blogging was bloggers have to have this bloody debate at least once a year…

      Him Up North » Indeed. I am sick of all the this is what we should be doing, bla, bla, bla. Also the thought of having to do a blogging manifesto. Be true to yourself and stop worrying about your blog so much that you have to write about it

    Actually, I don’t entirely agree. As ever 😉

    I think there are some rules around blogging. For starters, let’s remember that libel is illegal and “doing what you like” isn’t really okay if that’s going to be publishing anonymous claptrap about someone who can be identified from your words.

    I also struggle a bit with the idea that it’s NOT okay to say what I don’t like about some blogs. Maybe there’s no single set of rules, but we each have our own rules?

    So I don’t like people being paid to Tweet and not telling me about it. Might not be against their rules of blogging, but it’s against mine.

    I always seem to miss all the ‘debates’ on this type of thing? Am I missing much or should I seek it out?
    Blimey I probably break all the rules in the book. Whatever happened to people actually blogging rather than blogging about people blogging etc?

    I’m so glad my blog is subject specific otherwise I’d probably be in so much trouble with the blogging police.

    Love you jen! Keep doing what you do as it’s fab x

    I’d love to say there are no rules of blogging and I certainly prefer to believe that, but a little etiquette goes a long way and I do think this is something many bloggers find difficult to understand.

    I guess my personal rule of blogging would be to blog honestly. It’s what I’ve always done and what I will continue to do.

    I got the giggles terribly at a poster I saw the other day:-

    “Blogging; never has so much been said, by so many, to so few.”

    A good reminder that we should never take it too seriously!

    I go away for the weekend, well not really away but hubs 40th so hangover and all and what happens? Maybe its sometimes good to be in blogging cupboard with my anonymity. So does that mean that we don’t talk about blogging unless we’re blogging? or is that just fight club?
