Blogging guidelines

25 May

I’m considering some blogging guidelines for students and academic colleagues. Robert French has probably already done this work at Auburn, but I aim to ask him last. For now, here are some sources I’d like to come back to (and which you may also find useful).

It’s also worth noting that Tom Murphy got here two years ahead of me: PR Opinions 18 May 2004.

UPDATE: ‘Blog smart; cause no harm to any person’.

    Cobbler’s children. I was speaking at an event the other night and and answering a question about the difference between censoring and moderating comments by saying it was important to publish a blogging policy on the blog.
    At which point some helpful individual with a wifi laptop in the audience says “Your’s doesn’t”.
    It’s actually been in a 80% written state for the last 12 months, but looking at it now probably needs a totally rewrite.
    A long-winded way of saying thanks for providing these links!

    Sorry also meant to provide this link from the New York Times that I thought might be useful for yours:

    Hey Richard, I have seen this. Didn’t want you think I was avoiding you. I’ll write to you soon with what we do and share some other thoughts I’ve worked on, too. I look forward to what you come up with, as well. Those links are great.
    Look at the whole section on blogging policies at the NewPR/Wiki, if you haven’t already.

    and the unfinished, but valuable, Blogging on the Job FAQ:

    Richard, I’ve been waiting to see what you came up with– this is something that would really interest my students as well.
    Have you posted again on this and I missed it? Or are you still working on it?

    Thanks for ‘calling my bluff’ Karen. In truth, I’ve proposed leading a session for a teaching conference we hold here in September and will start the work in earnest once this has been confirmed. So the blog entry was to gather some links and trawl for additional insights and resources. Why reinvent the wheel?
