Blog with Integrity

Blog with Integrity launched in July 2009 as a way for bloggers to express and support a simple code of conduct for bloggers. We’reĀ  proud to support these principles and we encourage other bloggers to join and sign the pledge too.

Blogging with Integrity Pledge

By displaying the Blog with Integrity badge and signing the pledge, I assert that the trust of my readers and the blogging community is important to me.

I treat others respectfully, attacking ideas and not people. I also welcome respectful disagreement with my own ideas.

I believe in intellectual property rights, providing links, citing sources, and crediting inspiration where appropriate.

I disclose my material relationships, policies and business practices. My readers will know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, should I choose to have it. If I do sponsored or paid posts, they are clearly marked.

When collaborating with marketers and PR professionals, I handle myself professionally and abide by basic journalistic standards.

I always present my honest opinions to the best of my ability.

I own my words. Even if I occasionally have to eat them.
