Blogging 101

June 29, 2008

I was thinking about this lately, what are the blogging etiquettes or rules if there are any?

My blog roll has exponentially increased in number & this blog is not even 1 year old yet. (I’ve been blogging for nearly 8 months now).

Example: When someone is asking for an ex-link from me, should I add them first or wait until they add me?

I usually just add them anyway (especially if their blog appeals to me) and then check up on their blogs if they have added mine. I almost always never delete links unless that blog is gone or the blogger never bothered to add my link or visit my site.

Speaking of visiting sites: After an ex-link is established are we required to visit the site everyday???

Of course I try my best to visit daily, regularly or whatever, but that impossible because 1.) I have a life 2.) I work full time and lastly 3.)I am a mom to a 2 year old!

Anyway, when I do visit I make sure to leave a comment or a note in the cbox.

Also, I tag people and ask them to continue meme’s…Some do it, others don’t and that’s perfectly OK!
Just let me know if you’re up for a tag or not so I won’t continue tagging you. ^_^ because that’s just annoying right?

Another thing, when someone leaves a comment in one of the posts; Do the blogger(me) reply in the post itself,in the commenter’s page or through email? Is it rude to just leave the comments & not reply?

Ok this is a bit tricky but it’s a case to case basis. What I do is I really try my very best to reply to every comment made, even if it’s a simple ‘thank you’; I usually reply in the post itself. (so dear readers,just check
because that’s what I do when I leave comments in others page;I regularly check)

But if the comment left is a clear question that I feel I must address, I leave a comment in that commenter’s page or cbox or tagboard.

And lastly, if I need to answer a personal matter, like paypal email add, telephone number,or something like that I would send an email because that is more private.

I don’t think it’s rude not to reply to each and everyone’s comments because sometimes we don’t have the luxury of time.


Anywhoo, I feel weird writing this post (feeling pro?) but then again, I was just thinking because maybe I’ve offended some? Maybe there’s rules I don’t know? Right?

If I’ve offended anyone by not linking them or what, I do apologize. Also, if there are any tips/rules out there I don’t know about, care to share?

    I always encounter this ex-link thing. Honestly, I don’t just add people unless as what you’ve said their blogs appeal to me. Kasi I had experienced adding people in my blogroll but when I checked theirs wala ang link ko, to think sila ang nagrequest.

    Since then I learned my lesson hehe!

    Hi, was wondering if you’d like to exchange links with me?
    If yes, please leave your blog url as a comment at:
    I’ll link to you first, then when you have time link back k?
    Thanks, Michael

    This post got my interest.Well, thank you for tagging me always. And in fairness to me hehe., I always do the tag. When it comes to comment stuff I fail to thank you every time you leave a comment on my post. On the ex link issue, I make it a point to visit the blog of the bloggers on my blog list. I enjoy visiting them.

    sa personal blog, i make it a point to link to only my legitimate/real blogging berks. if they don’t link back it’s fine. tutal naman it’s supposed to be a guide for me, dahil sila yung supposedly lagi kong binibisita or/and they’re the ones i am proud to recommend to others.

    sa working blog, anything goes. it’s a pr0 anyway, sino ba naman ang gustong magpa-link sa isang hamak na pr0, haha!
