Ten Commandments of Blogging

September 29, 2008

According to Evangelical Alliance:

You shall not put your blog before your integrity.

You shall not make an idol of your blog.

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

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

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

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

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

You shall not steal another person’s content.

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

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



  1. Somebody should tell Challies about #4! 🙂

    Actually … he probably writes them the day before, for auto-release the next day. Not unlike the “manna” of old (Exod. 16:22-26) …

  2. David,

    I probably would mention this (#4) to Tim Challies, but I’m too much crippled with the ‘coveting blog ranking’ thing (#10) to tell him.
