Please Blog Responsibly! <3

There are concerns about many topics involving dangers with blogging. People are concerned that blogging may contribute to an increase in cyberbullying and attracting unwanted people to view you're personal thoughts and ideas. When blogging people are posting their own personal beliefs using a right of freedom of speech. Sometimes this offends people and that is when we see most of the potential dangers. I think that all of these are legitimate resons to be cautious in blogging and maybe even be more considerate when posting your blogs! Rules should be made with these blogging sites. People getting death threats would probably agree. If we have to go back to the Kindergarten rules so be it; "If you don't have anything nice to say, then keep your mouth shut!" Some people shouldn't voice their opinions at all... but again they have that right. People, however, should be limited to topics that can be discussed and maybe word usage should be monitored. To prevent people from sexual preditors maybe their needs to be an age limit on blogging or more secure blogging sites. But, again, those are just my opinions! :)
