Blogging Guidelines

Press PUBLISH and you are visible to the world.

BE SAFE

  • *Do not use your last name.
  • *Don’t be specific when writing about yourself. eg. Say: “I play basketball with a local team” rather than “I play for the Mt Eliza Tigers”.
  • *Never give anyone your address, email address or phone number. You can keep in touch through the blog.
  • *Do not post photos of others without their permission.
  • BE RESPECTFUL

  • *Don’t say anything that might be offensive to someone else.
  • *Be considerate of others. When commenting, show others that you have read what they have written rather than just saying “great job”.
  • *Be open to other people’s opinions, but be prepared to discuss your own position if you don’t agree.
  • THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT WHAT YOU WRITE IN POSTS

    BE LITERATE

  • *You know about good grammar, spelling and punctuation. Apply it!
  • *Save abbreviations and shortcuts for MSN and texting.
  • *You are broadcasting yourself to the world. Present yourself in the best possible light.
  • ALWAYS FOLLOW THESE RULES
