As I’ve discussed before, bloggers aren’t journalists (unless of course they are journalists* – if you catch my drift!), however they are increasingly influential in the online world.

This influence means that it makes a lot of sense to adopt an informal code of ethics.  Rebecca Blood, author of “The Weblog Handbook” has published a six point charter for ethical blogging and it makes a lot of sense.

And of course where ethics end and good taste takes over there’s already the Blogger Manifesto.

* Deborah Branscum, Dan Gillmor, Doc Searls, Jon Udell, Karlin Lillington and Bernie Goldbach to name but a few!
