The Ten Commandments of Blogging

Stumbled upon this today…reblogging for myself as much as anyone. I have gained much by reading blogs…may I diligently return the favor!

A Holistic Journey

1. Thou shalt not waste readers’ time. Offer up thy readers a worthy sacrifice that they might take and be satisfied.

2. Thou shalt honor thy muse. Be prepared in season, out of season to seize inspiration when she comes that ye might write, dance, photograph, paint thy bliss. Be not caught without thy scroll, ink, pen, iGadget, camera. Thou wilt not redeem the moment the locust has eaten.

3. Thou shalt preview thy draft and spell-check before publishing that the Angel of Vengeance shall not fly over thy blog in the night.10commandmts2

4. Always speak ye the truth.

5. Thou shalt not take up the like button in vain, foremost on this blog. It is holystic ground. Thou shalt in integrity read the posts before clicking anything lest thou incite my wrath. Know ye that I see thou couldst not have read four of my brain-intensive posts in one…

  1. I’m so sorry for the last post. My phone froze on me before I could edit and finish my reply, and then it posted my comment. Actually, it’s kind of funny. Here I was talking about not posting till someone’s read your blog and corrected it, and my reply is posted with several mistakes. Anyway, as I said, I never post anything without it first read, edited and corrected by at least one other person. I’ve rebuked people for “Like” my posts on Facebook when it’d said something like, “My good friend just passed away.” What is it that these people “Like”, the fact that my best friend just passed away from cancer? Have we become that careless or lazy that we can’t even write a simple, “Im sorry!”? All that to say, thank you for your reblog. By the way, I wonder how many people who’re not familiar with the Bible, understand the post?

    • Yea, I have not mastered the phone-editing process, not always optimal. And good point about the assumption about Bible knowledge. I would think–the Ten Commandments is culturally still relevant–maybe not. As a Christian I try to watch the lingo–I want to speak the truth clearly without church-speak. Thanks for the comment. It takes time, I appreciate it.
