Ten Commandments of Bloggers

I read about the Ten Commandments for Bloggers here.  These are good commandments, especially what passes for “Christian” behavior in the blogosphere.  I do cringe a little bit every time a see one of these lists that take off of the Ten Commandments.  This one, as opposed to simply a list of ten thou shalt nots, actually follows the content of the Ten Commandments.  Any thoughts on these commandments or the application of the Ten Commandmens to various areas of life?

Ten Commandments for Bloggers

1 You shall not put your blog before your integrity

2 You shall not make an idol of your blog

3 You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin

4 Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog

5 Honour your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes

6 You shall not murder someone else’s honour, reputation or feelings

7 You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind

8 You shall not steal another person’s content

9 You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger

10 You shall not covet your neighbour’s blog ranking. Be content with your own content

One response to this post.

  1. Thanks for pointing out how it follows the ten commandments (becomes more obvious as the list rolls along). You would think the first command would simply be “You shall have no blog before Me.” That’s a command to live by!
