I will not insult my fellow students or their writing.
I will only post pieces that I am comfortable with everyone seeing; other pieces I will keep as drafts.

I will take all online content creation seriously, posting only things that are meaningful and taking my time when I write.

I will not bully others in my blog posts or in my comments.
I will never access another student's account in order to pose as them or look at their personal content, but I will advise them when they haven't logged out of their computer from my own account.

I will personalize my blog and keep my writing authentic, while taking responsibility for anything blogged in my name.
I will not provoke other students in my blog posts or comments.
I will use my online content as an extension of the classroom, and in doing so, I will leave anything that unsaid in the classroom unsaid online.
I will only post photos which are school appropriate and either in the creative commons or correctly cited.
I will not spam (including, but not limited to meaningless messages, mass messages, and repetitive messages)
I will only post comments on posts that I have fully read, rather than just skimmed.
I will respect the public nature of online information, and in doing so, I will respect the wishes of my fellow students for keeping their information (full name, compromising stories, etc.) private.
