Basic Blog Etiquette

  1. A blog is a more personal environment than a Wiki. TDWG has provided this add-on to the Typo3 CMS to encourage some 'free thinking'.
  2. Most use Wikis as environments to achieve specific  outcomes - in TDWG's case - usually documents. Blogs are less formal than WIkis and do not need to achieve a specific formal outcome.
  3. Blogs are a reflection of a personal opinion, often provocative and therefore an attempt to break new ground and stir up healthy thinking
  4. Brevity encourages reading
  5. References are strongly encouraged
  6. Please inform webmaster(at)tdwg(dot)org if other blogs should be aggregated
