Rules for responsible blogging

There are rules in the world that we live in, and whether we like it or not we are certainly bound to them. Even blogging in an increasingly interconnected world via the World Wide Web are no exception from the rules. While the rules are not fixed ones, it will certainly help you to become a better blogger and promote responsible blogging in order to make yourself credible to your readers. It will also help you with getting a peace of mind, as you will be able to express yourself fearlessly and openly with proper ethics.

Here are the 10 Rules For Responsible Blogging. I have read through them and I agree that adhering to at least some of these rules will make yourself a better blogger, at least in the eyes of your readers. Unlike some people who like to create nasty blogs in order to hit out at a well-known PR5 blogger, I do not like to behave in such an irresponsible and biadap (uncivilised) manner. However it is a known fact that such people who are by no means “credible bloggers” will do such things in order to undermine the existence of another. Such is the attitude of irresponsible bloggers who tarnish the good name of others. They will certainly have a rude shock from Blogger soon once the report that was filed with the free blog hosting provider is acted upon by the Blogger team.

In short, blog responsibly and you will be saved. This is a Sponsored Review production. To buy a review on this blog, click here.

      Linda Johnson admits that her two miniature poodles, Ollie and Hershey, sometimes trotted into her neighbor’s yard during their morning and afternoon walks. It is possible that once or twice, the two brown and black fur balls even peed in the grass, she said.

      But that, she said, was no reason to have her arrested, shackled and charged with trespassing, all based on accusations by her Calvert County neighbors, a Maryland State Police sergeant and his wife.

      “What’s even crazier is the state’s attorney is actually going to prosecute me in court for this,” said Johnson, 47, who is awaiting trial this month on the charges filed in May. “They’re sniffing along the grass, walking on the grass, because that’s where the dogs want to walk.”

      The case of Maryland v. Linda May Johnson is a classic tale of suburban strife, pitting dog walker against homeowner, neighbor against neighbor on a contentious issue that roils communities across the region. Compounding the squabble is Johnson’s claim that her neighbors’ German shepherd attacked her poodles and 8-year-old son.

      The neighbors, James and Jennifer Barth, did not return repeated phone calls seeking comment. In court documents, Jennifer Barth accuses Johnson of repeatedly walking Ollie and Hershey into her yard, over her objections, and allowing them to pee and poop.

      The state police commander present during Johnson’s arrest defended his troopers’ actions. He said Johnson herself frequently strolled on the Barths’ yard and ignored one simple request: Walk on the other side of the street.

      “I felt it was the appropriate thing to do,” said 1st Sgt. Stewart Cumbo of the state police barrack in Prince Frederick. “If anything, I was more surprised with her conduct to continue to allow her dogs to trespass on this property after she had agreed to cease and desist.”

      Those involved say tension between the Barths and the Johnsons turned into an all-out dogfight several months ago, when Johnson called animal control to report a dog attacking her poodles and son.

      In court documents, Jennifer Barth wrote that her dogs were inside during the “supposed incident,” but she acknowledged that Johnson’s call to animal control was the first of many problems between them.

      “From this point forward, she began to constantly walk the dogs in our yard,” Jennifer Barth wrote in an application for a protective order against Johnson. That temporary order, obtained after Johnson’s arrest, was dismissed when Jennifer Barth, 35, did not attend a court hearing to finalize it.

      “I would tell her to get the dogs out of the yard, always hearing the same responses — It is not your yard, stating we are harassing her, Yelling obscenities, giving visual obscenities, etc.,” Jennifer Barth wrote. “The dog walking was/is an almost every day event.”

      Johnson, who has since moved to New Hampshire for reasons unrelated to her arrest, acknowledged getting into heated arguments with Jennifer Barth and her 15-year-old daughter. But the arguments, she said, were initiated by Jennifer Barth, who would bellow at her every time the dogs walked onto her lawn.

      come on i know it’s a litle bit long but come on i know its not like u dont have time to read this othere wise u wouldent be here

      come on i know it’s a litle bit long but come on i know its not like u dont have time to read this othere wise u wouldent be here

    5. I read many of the blogs in the food and drink category and they are all informative in one way or another. I love food and have a great deal of food design experience. Please let me know how I may become a blogger there.

    6. If I want to use a font that says it’s for personal use only, would it be ok to use on blogger? Also, I don’t know if getting Google Adsense would make a difference.

    7. So on my blogger page I have viewers in Germany and Russia, and on YouTube I only have viewers in US and Canada. I got YouTube first, which I am doing pretty well in, and I mentioned my blogger account there and only there. So how do I have different viewers on my blog than from my YouTube?

    8. I can write better than the average person (not that that is saying much these days) and I have strong opinions on various subjects. I don’t have experience as a journalist or technical writer, but what does a person need to start blogging and who pays, if the blogger gets picked up as a writer?

    9. Hi I am trying to preview articles from blogger on a separate site, where the most recent article would show up and could link to the blog itself. I have googled enough and read about rss. I can code html, xml etc. I would really appreciate any help

    10. So I have an existing blogger account already but I want to make a new one, make a fresh start, etc. But I don’t wanna delete my old acc.
      So can I make another one but with same email (one that I use alot)?
      If not, how do I change emails for my old blogger acc, so I can use my more-used email for my new blog?

    11. I just got the nook color for christmas and I need some help with it 🙂 How do I set this up so that I can write my blogspot from the NC? Do I need to download the blogger app?

    12. well my friend made a blog and he won’t show me what his blog is until he finishes everything with it. So i was wondering if there was a way to find someones blogger with their email address. If anyone could show me how. thatd be great thanks!

    13. The feeling has occurred over the last few weeks.

      It started when i bought an outfit for after prom and showed my friends. They weren’t too keen on it and just sort of smiled and shrugged it off. Then my sister showed them her outfit and they LOVED it. I mean really liked it and kept saying how good she looked it in.

      Then a boy started texting me. We had a few naughty texts and he commented on how pretty i was. Then he’d stop talking, then 4 days later talk to me again. As if he was using me because he was bored or didn’t have another girl to talk to. Then i noticed he has a girlfriend, which has actually really peed me off.

      And finally, my weight. I’m 10stone 9pounds and 5ft9 tall. I’m not over weight, i don’t have any hanging fat or anything, i’m apparently slim. But lately i have been feeling like a fat mumma. I worry about the things i eat; i plan when i’m going to exercises and how long. I’ve stopped treating myself to my favorite foods. It’s getting a little crazy.

      I came home today feeling really down and sad and i cried for abit but i have no idea why?!

      Can anyone help me or tell me what they think i should do? or what they think is wrong with me?

    14. i’m 20 year old girl i’ll be 21 in august anyways My days consist of Looking for a job, going to school,watching Netflix, and playing video games, twitter and blogging.I don’t have a social life at all. My life is so boring i only have one friend i really talk to.i don’t have a love life at all :/
