My Code of Ethics

I would just like to acknowledge that I borrowed these ethics from my wonderful PR professor Kelli Matthews, who in turn borrowed them from Charlene Li’s A Blogger’s Code of Ethics. Therefore, I’d like to thank you both and acknowledge you for your brilliance.

  1. I will tell the truth.
  2. I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
  3. I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
  4. I will preserve the original post, using notations to show where I have made changes so as to maintain the integrity of my publishing.
  5. I will never delete a post.
  6. I will not delete comments unless they are spam, off-topic, contain personal attacks or hate speech. All comments are moderated.
  7. I will reply to emails and comments when appropriate, and do so promptly.
  8. I will strive for high quality with every post – including basic spellchecking.
  9. I will stay on topic.
  10. I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
  11. I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
  12. I will disclose conflicts of interest.
  13. I will keep private issues and topics private.
