Working as a blogger is a profession that entails too many responsibilities. Some may say that blogging is just easy, it is as easy as writing whatever it is that you feel, whatever it is that you want to share, but beyond that, blogging should be done intelligently.
As a blogger, you know your responsibility is not limited to just sharing whatever it is that you feel. You know that your readers are your responsibility, thus you should never let them down in any way. You need to ensure that you:
Research first before you post
Base everything on facts, you need to research before you post, especially those blogs that include information or processes. Never mislead your readers; only share information that is based on facts and research. Sending wrong information to readers is something that you should never allow.
Yes, you can write blogs base on your opinions, but again, base it from collected facts and objectives. In some cases, you may be allowed to share subjective opinions, anyway, everyone has different views and opinions and they are free to share and post it, but above that freedom, you need to make sure that you somehow think things many times before you post.
Not all blogs can help, some may cause arguments and misunderstandings, try to avoid those to happen and be as fair as possible.
Share things that can help and be highly informative to readers
As a blogger, it is your responsibility to educate readers and share with them the information that they need. It is your responsibility to make the information that they need to be available on the Internet.
Make sure that in the event that they need instructions, guides, or anything of the like, they can access it on the Internet. Sure, as a blogger you have limitations and you cannot cover everything, but yet, working on what you can share is a huge help and can go far enough.
To ensure that in case you blogged wrongfully, admit it
No one is perfect, that is a fact, everyone has the chance of committing mistakes, intentional or unintentional, the only thing you can do after doing so is admitting and correcting whatever it is that has been done.
Committing mistakes is just humane, thus better be honest with it and correct it immediately. You cannot avoid committing mistakes completely, thus the best that you can do is think things over first before posting or sharing.
Choice of words and phrases
When you post a blog for a certain website or inline per se, what you need to make sure is that you are using words and phrases that are universally understandable.
The people that can possibly read your blog may come from different generations or walks of life, thus it is a must that you use words that are universally understandable.
Working as a blogger is a profession, that handles a huge responsibility that anyone who is in this field of the industry should understand. If you are not ready to face those challenges then definitely you are not fit to be a blogger.
