Blogging Guidelines

If you’re added to the NorCal Blogs roster, here are some basic guidelines:

  • Readers like blogs that are up-to-date with concise, timely posts.
    • NorCal Blogs recommends that bloggers post at least once a week, but more frequent updates are excellent.
  • Please no profanity, mild or otherwise. We ask this of both posters and people leaving comments.
  • Please do not publish posts or comments containing inaccurate information, especially regarding private individuals. The practice is known as libel and is a serious matter. If there’s any doubt, please feel free to contact us for advice.
  • As the overall owner of NorCal Blogs, the Enterprise-Record reserves the ultimate right to remove obscene, libelous or abusive posts or comments.
  • If you wish to use anything other than basic text in your blogs (i.e. photos, videos, etc), it is up to you to know or learn basic HTML coding. We can only provide limited assistance with HTML and basic computer usage.
  • Contact us if you’re experiencing technical difficulties with the blog. We will do our best to provide a prompt response, but we can’t guarantee an immediate solution.

Thanks again for your interest in NorCal Blogs. We’re eager to promote greater communication and community in Northern California and on the Internet.
