So, yesterday, while doin' a little blog hoppin'...I was visiting my awesome blog friend, A., aka, the Crayon Wrangler (btw...have you ever been to her blog? She is stinkin' hilarious!)!
Anywho...so, while I was over there, I noticed that she had this fancy schmancy little button:
"Hmmmm...", thought I.
So...I clicked, and headed on over to check it out.
What I found...made me think...and this, my friends is an awesome concept (er...that'd be the blogging with integrity that's an awesome concept...my thinking isn't an awesome concept...it's...well, it's kinda scary, at best!).
What it is, is a pledge...to "sign"...saying that you will "Blog with Integrity"...that you'll give credit where credit is due. I can't possibly say it any better than "the pledge"...so check it out!
You can click on the box above, or here, if you'd rather not scroll back up! See how easy I make it for you?!! ;)
I think it is incredibly important, and respectful, to not pass something off as your own...to respect other's "intellectual property"...to respectfully disagree...to not attack people, just ideas.
I know I take great pride in my blog (the goofy, silly thing that it is!)...in my work, in what I write, in the ideas I come up with. I started this blog for fun and I extremely enjoy blogging (more than I ever imagined!), but it's still something I take seriously. And I'm sure you do too...which is why I think this is such an important pledge!
You, my readers, deserve integrity!! Not just on my blog, but on all blogs...dontcha think?
I took the pledge...and I am now proudly displaying the badge!
