  2. Write things that I believe to be truth
  3. Specify my source of information – credit to offline sources and link to online sources
  4. Specify clearly the use of any unconfirmed fact or information

  6. Clearly differentiate between advertisements and blog content
  7. Disclose clearly if an entry is posted sponsored or as advertisement or after accepting a payment or goods to write it
  8. Admit and correct mistakes as soon as possible but only with strikethrough or editorial notes
  9. Allow comments to engage audience, allow different opinions and clearly state my moderation policy if any
