Blogging guidelines to follow...

During our blog learning you are expected to follow these blogging guidelines below. 
Use the questions in italics to help you decide what is appropriate to post on your blog. 

1. Only post things that you would want everyone (in school, at home, in other countries) to know.
        Ask yourself: Is this something I want everyone to see?

2. Do not share personal information.
        Ask yourself: Could someone find me (in real life) based on this information? 

3. Think before you post. 
        Ask yourself: What could be the consequences of this post? 

4. Know who you’re communicating with. 
        Ask yourself: Who is going to look at this, and how are they going to interpret my words? 

5. Consider your audience. 
        Ask yourself: Do I have a good reason/purpose to do this? 

6. Know how to give constructive feedback. 
        Ask yourself: What will I cause by writing this post? 

7. Treat other people the way you want to be treated. 
        Ask yourself: Would I want someone to say this to me? 

8. Use appropriate language and proper grammar and spelling. 
        Ask yourself: Have I spell checked my post for spelling and grammar errors? 

9. Only post information that you can verify is true (no gossiping). 
        Ask yourself: Is this inappropriate, immature or bullying? 

10. Anytime you use media from another source, be sure to properly cite the creator of the original work. 
        Ask yourself: Who is the original creator of this work?
