Should Bloggers Have A Code of Ethics?

For my next video in the blogging advice series on my YouTube channel I am discussing the topic of ethics and etiquette amongst bloggers.

Many professional industries have a code of ethics, a set of guidelines, or a charter of good behaviour for members to sign up to and abide by.

Is this something bloggers, vloggers and content creators consider?

With the internet being a largely unregulated part of life do we have a responsibility to conduct ourselves ethical? How far do we need to go to protect ourselves, or audience and our peers?

Watch the video above or head over to YouTube here.

I would love to know your thoughts on this topic. Do you think bloggers need a code of ethics?

About The Author

I am a multi-award winning lifestyle blogger, writer, public speaker and social media consultant. I want to share ideas on how to live a holistic positive life. This is about taking self-care seriously (but taking yourself with a good dose of humour). Because if you don’t take care of yourself you can’t take care of anybody else or the world around you. Rosalilium is about reclaiming self-centred-ness as a lifestyle choice that is honest, meaningful and kind to yourself. Making a change in the world starts with you.

    I’ve been meaning to comment on this since I watched it the other day Elizabeth, I hold myself to a high standard and because of that I’ve turned down a lot of offers, for better or worse I’ve always stood by that and have missed many opps because of it. However because of that I believe that people who read my blog can see I believe in everything I write about. I have never stolen content preferring to not write at all until inspiration strikes again. I think you’ve raised some really important issues, around the fact there is little to no regulation. I’m with you though, we are all accountable to ourselves at the end of the day xx

    this is really interesting and completely agree with this. I would add : don’t buy your followers/likes! the amount of people I see doing this is ridiculous, particularly on IG. This needs to stop, seriously.
