Student Blogging Guidelines
As a student blogger at LIS, 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
- 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?
- Think before you share personal information.
Ask yourself: Could someone find me (in real life) based on this information?
- Think before you post.
Ask yourself: What could be the consequences of this post?
- Know who you’re communicating with.
Ask yourself: Who is going to look at this, and how are they going to interpret my words?
- Consider your audience.
Ask yourself: Do I have a good reason/purpose to do this?
- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.
Ask yourself: Is this inappropriate, immature or bullying?
- Use appropriate language, grammar and spelling.
Ask yourself: Have I revised and edited my post?
- Anytime you use media or information from another source, be sure to properly cite the source.
Ask yourself: Have I appropriately cited my sources?
