Do you have a corporate blogging policy? Before embarking on your blogging journey, you should consider the “dos” and “don’ts” of blogging from both a company and a blogosphere point of view.

Here are some ideas for you:

  1. Employees/bloggers must abide by non-disclosure agreements or confidentiality policies.
  2. Employees/bloggers must be aware of company policies governing use of corporate identity (logos, etc.) apply
  3. Employees/bloggers cannot make discriminatory, libelous, etc., comments when discussing the company, its employees and competitors
  4. Employees/bloggers must comply with other company policies (e.g., anti-harrassment rules)
  5. The company should reserve the right to discipline employees/bloggers who violate any of the corporate policy
