Tell me, do you have standards you uphold whenever you blog? Whether or not you do, today’s suggested reading will make you take a long, hard look at your blogging habits. Are you ready for another tough read?

Smart Blogger Challenge

And before I forget, I would like to remind you about the giveaway which I announced yesterday. I will be giving away prizes worth PhP10,000 as a token of my appreciation for your joining the 21-Day Smart Blogging Challenge. (I discussed that in yesterday’s challenge announcement.)

Don’t miss out, okay? You deserve to be part of the giveaway as much as the Smart Blogger Challenge! Don’t worry; I won’t ask you to share anything or blog about this challenge. It’s a giveaway without ulterior motives – I just want to give back, plain and simple.

Anyway, time to get back to the reading task at hand. Let’s get back to the topic of blogging standards and whether or not we need them.

Blogging Standards, Anyone?

Just to be clear, I’m not imposing on anyone the idea that you should follow a set of standards all the time! (Okay, I wish we all did, but I’m not one to dictate.)

Instead, I want you to ask yourselves a question. More importantly, I want you to be honest when you come up with an answer.

Don’t worry; you won’t be judged, since you don’t have to share your honest answer with anyone. (Okay, I wish you could share your answer with me, but I’m not one to dictate.)

But before you answer today’s question, do read this first. It might help you come up with an answer with less effort.

Day 13 Suggested Read:
Blogging Standards, For Real?

We live in a democratic country, so you are free to come to your own conclusions. Would you rather that every blogger you knew followed the same set of standards? Or do you prefer being free to follow your own standards, dictated by nobody and imposed by nobody?

Again, since this is a democracy, feel free to share your opinions via the comment section. I definitely won’t mind hearing from you!

Good news! Anyone who joins the 21-Day Smart Blogger Challenge on or before February 16, 2015 will be eligible to join the contest wherein PhP10,000 worth of prizes will be given away!
