Ethics

This is my code of ethics, which I’ve adapted from Kelli Matthews “Blog Policies”.  It is important to me that I follow this code, as all bloggers should be held accountable for what they post.

  • I will tell the truth.
  • I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
  • I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
  • I will preserve the original post, using notations to show where I have made changes so as to maintain the integrity of my publishing, and link back to it.
  • I will not delete comments unless they are spam, off-topic, or an attack on anyone.
  • I will promptly reply to emails and comments when appropriate.
  • I will strive for high quality with every post – including basic spellchecking.
  • I will stay on topic.
  • I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
  • I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
  • I will disclose conflicts of interest.
  • I will keep private issues and topics private, since discussing private issues would jeopardize my personal and work relationships.
  • I will respect all other bloggers and their opinions.
