Bias, Policies, and all that yadda
I’m a dummie! I love the “for dummies” books. Heck, I love books! Anyway, my Blogging for Dummies book discusses transparency and ethical blogging. I’m struggling a bit with it, as a new blogger, but this page is for my policies as they develop.
Editing: Blogging for Dummies says ethical bloggers don’t edit their posts, or edit them in such a way as to indicate what has changed. I understand the reasoning behind this, but this one’s a tough one for me! I’m a compulsive editor! I’m always thinking of things to add. If I make a mistake, post something inaccurate, need to retract something, I will so indicate and leave the original text in. Otherwise, I reserve the right to edit for spelling, style, or additions.
Bias: The posts in this blog reflect my own personal experiences and opinions. Since I’m not a professional piercer or a medical professional, I post with a lay consumer viewpoint.
- I am pro: professional piercing, needle piercing, piercing for all ages, simple and holistic aftercare
- I am anti: self-piercing (under most circumstances); gun piercing, proprietary aftercare concoctions
- I am a patron member of the Association for Professional Piercers, and I support APP studios and policies.
Commercial endorsements: At the moment, I do not endorse, represent, or promote any particular products or jewelry. I am not an affiliate of anyone. If this changes, I will note it on this page.
Comment policy: Piercings are not for everyone, but some people feel the need to express their disgust in hateful terms. I reserve the right to summarily delete personal attacks and rude, hateful, obscene, libelous, and spam posts.
