I Took The Pledge!

BWS tips button

Come join me and so many other Bloggers to take the Pledge to restore integrity and support so that all bloggers can have a voice and take a stand against online bullying!  Come make a commitment to a promote a higher standard!
The Mom Pledge
I am a proud Mommy Blogger. I will conduct myself with integrity in all my blogging activities. I can lead by example.
I pledge to treat my fellow moms with respect. I will acknowledge that there is no one, “right” way to be a good Mom. Each woman makes the choices best for her family.
I believe a healthy dialogue on important issues is a good thing. I will welcome differing opinions when offered in a respectful, non-judgmental manner. And will treat those who do so in kind.
I stand up against online bullying. My blog is my space. I will not tolerate comments that are rude, condescending or disrespectful.
I refuse to give those who attack a platform. I will remove their remarks from my blog with no mention or response. I can take control.
I want to see moms work together to build one another up, not tear each other down. Words can be used as weapons. I will not engage in that behavior.
I affirm that we are a community. As a member, I will strive to foster goodwill among moms. Together, we can make a difference.

HAve you had recent problems with online bullying? I like this pledge. But what about dad blogs? I know there are like 6 of us total, but we deserve respect too.

Hey, I am a runner too. Glad you found me.

Cheeseboy, you're right- we need to include Dad blogs as well!

Glad I found you too!

Thanks, Elisabeth!
