I respect everyones right to post whatever they choose. Some things need not be seen by all eyes.

Yes its easy to say I don’t care what they think about what I am posting but when you live in community with them it makes it tough. Of course when some folks will try to tell you that your opinion is wrong then it becomes a situation where you have to go undercover. No one should have to do cloak themselves or what they feel.

Respect our fellow bloggers. Be courteous and civil with those who might disagree with you. When making comments don’t hide behind the anonymous feature.

On occasion it would be good for a blog to feature an original post from the person curating its content. It doesn’t matter what type of post however if you post a lot of pictures a text post every now and then can break up the monotony.

In my humble opinion a good blogger will establish a relationship with people who take time to check out your posts. That is what makes blogging special in that it’s a very social medium. Keep your readers coming back and interested it will help you and them enjoy the process.
Men who blog are awesome!
