Student Blogging Guidelines

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

  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. Think before you 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. Treat other people the way you want to be treated.
    Ask yourself: Is this inappropriate, immature or bullying?
  7. Use appropriate language, grammar and spelling.
    Ask yourself: Have I revised and edited my post?
  8. Anytime you use media or information from another source, be sure to properly cite the source.
    Ask yourself: Have I appropriately cited my sources?
