I posted on March 12 that I had not been able to find a guide to blog etiquette anywhere on the 'osphere, and that I was struggling with some basic behaviors. My original query was how to behave when you accidentally posted your comment several times on a blog. When I found there was no consensus answer for that question, I started thinking about other etiquette issues.

So I'm beginning here to compile some basic blog standards. I'll use my constant survey of blog behavior and any comments from readers or links I find elsewhere.

So far we haven't come across a guide to blog etiquette anywhere on the 'osphere. So how about if I start one here? I'll use my constant survey of blog behavior and any comments from readers or links I find elsewhere. There is a lot of ground to cover here, including comment behavior, as I blogged about on Friday, attribution of posts (frequency, style, etc.), lists of other bloggers, personal messages on blogs, revealing company information on blogs, profanity, sex, photos, and more.

So, I'm an eager marketing gal and I've been posting around the web (as some of you know), evangelizing about Jyte. I'm trying to be topical and polite, because I want to be trusted, and I understand there are a lot of unwritten rules out here.

OK, this is where it gets tough. The rules are unwritten.
