Playing by the rules

Ever play Chutes and Ladders? Candy Land? Easy games. Simple rules. You can learn them in 30 seconds or less and that includes translating them to a 3 year old.

Yesterday I had an interesting and entertaining conversation with a Horizons member who is interested in what Communications does, blogging in particular. I was reminded during the conversation that when the blog began just more than a year ago, I posted some very simple guidelines.

Then I remembered how after I posted them once and reposted them a few months later I was getting the equivalent of celebrity in how dare I tell the people of Horizons how to behave. I thought it was funny then, but during the interim I've often had other churches email me and ask for our blogging guidelines for our church. I've never modified the ground-rules -- it hasn't been necessary. I don't mind the personal attacks on me, I'm a big girl, but I will continue to protect others and their reputations and, even more importantly, their feelings. So, once again, here are the ground rules for the blog. I look forward, once again, to your comments posted here or sent to me personally:

Blog Ground Rules:

  • Be nice. You don't know who is reading.
  • Be honest. You don't know who is reading.
  • Be real. You don't know who is reading.
  • Be careful. You don't know who is reading.

Have a great day.
