1. Limited Pimping - Teasers back to your blog are welcome, as long as a reasonable amount of text is posted (more than a short sentence) -- AT LEAST A PARAGRAPH!
We want you to gain hits to your blog, but we want everyone else to as well. In order for that to happen this site has to be interesting enough to visit. A site full of postings with one-liners to your personal blog is very very uninteresting.
you are just posting the linked titles of your latest blog postings you
are not thinking of the others here, and the hits that you are
receiving will soon dry up as people leave CBC for a site that is worth
You will be warned a few times by me adding the rules in your posting's comment box, then I will boot you from the site.
2. Not bitching -
This is not a promise that you are going to gain 1,000,000 hits to your
personal site; it will increase your audience, but how many people like
your material will mostly determine success.
A lot of people will read your postings, but not that many are going to follow the link to your site.
3. No wasting my time - I have a backlog of people wanting to post, so if you plan on posting once or twice and then leaving, don't bother. I will save us both some time by adding someone else who actually wants to blog here.
4. NO Plagiarizing - Just a reminder, under "fair use" we can use short snips of someone's work as long as it attributed to them. Anything else has to be rewritten and paraphrased by you.
5. No Jail time - I also ask that you use common sense when posting. That means; no porn, profanity, threats (to the government, it's officials or anyone else for that matter), hate speech, racist remarks or anything otherwise illegal or in poor taste. If this rule is broken the posting will be deleted, your blogger rights removed, and your blog taken down off this site.6. No more than 3 posts a day - We have had people in the past fill up the blog with post after post, until all we had to offer was a page full of links to their blog. Do you think that a lot of people would want to visit this site if we allowed that to happen?
