I took the Oath for Ethical Blogging on the very first day of my blogging career.
As a blogger, my purpose is to serve the greater good by delivering the right and truthful information to people.
However, the information may differ from other sources.
Because, it may be opinionated and enriched with personal life experiences.
I understand that my blog posts and comments can have consequences that affect the well-being of individuals in any part of the world, today and in the future.
As I take the path of truth and transparency, I will face choices that are not easy for me and others.
Therefore, I swear that I will observe and keep this underwritten oath, to the utmost of my power and judgment.
I will respect the wisdom of others I learn from and gladly share such knowledge with those who are to follow.
I will help the newbie and other bloggers in whichever way possible. It would be genuinely for their benefit, avoiding any discrimination and dishonesty.
I will remember that blogging is more than writing online updated journals. It is a means of spreading values, enabling empowerment, providing knowledge, and expression of freedom.
I will never misuse my influence and power of blogging to cause harm to others in anyway. I understand that with great power comes greater responsibility, and I’ll prove myself worthy.
I will not abuse blogging as a means to cheat and mislead people for my selfish motives of earning money. I’ll always disclose and reveal if I stand to benefit in my blog posts.
I will be honest and humble to admit my mistakes and correct them. I’ll never intentionally create content with false information and will always include disclaimers, wherever necessary.
I will observe transparency in my blogging ways and be truthful in all my blogging efforts. I’ll give due credit where required and discourage others from cheating or indulging in malpractice.
I will remember that I remain a member of the society and have special obligations to my fellow bloggers. Whatever I do, I’ll always uphold the values of humanity and esteem of bloggers, and never fall for evil temptations.
If I faithfully observe this oath, may I prosper in my profession and live a life being respected and remembered with affection thereafter.
May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of blogging for those who seek my help.
