Sample ‘Corporate Blogging Policy’

Corporations, law firm’s included, are struggling to develop a corporate blogging policy. Charlene Li, an analyst with Forrester Research included a ‘Sample Blogging Policy’ in a recent report on corporate blogs:

  • I will tell the truth.
  • I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
  • I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
  • I will preserve the original post, using notations to show where I have made changes so as to maintain the integrity of my publishing.
  • I will never delete a post.
  • I will not delete comments unless they are spam or off-topic.
  • I will reply to emails and comments when appropriate, and do so promptly.
  • I will strive for high quality with every post – including basic spellchecking.
  • I will stay on topic.
  • I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
  • I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
  • I will disclose conflicts of interest.
  • I will keep private issues and topics private, since discussing private issues would jeopardize my personal and work relationships.

Though there are additions I would make in the case of law firm, I think this is a heck of a nice start. Thanks Charlene.
