Blog Etiquette or Blogtiquette

Unfortunately there has been an up rise of bad behavior in the blog world lately. Honestly it is just bad taste to leave nasty comments about some one “anonymously” on someones blog. It just goes back to the old saying of “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. While I was doing some research on this I found the Tip Junkies blog who offered some great in site on a few Bogtiquette rules to abide by:

1. Give credit where credit is due. If you saw a post, meme, idea, etc. that you
love and want to recreate on your blog – go ahead. Just be sure to give link
love to the person you blog jacked it from.

2. Do not attack people with negative anonymous comments. If you’re going to disagree with someone own up to it by linking your name otherwise don’t comment at all. Leaving negative comments anonymously is a cowardly thing to do. Obviously, you’re not going to agree with every post you read by every blogger – but allow others their opinion. It’s their blog and they can post what they want to. The purpose of comments in general are to continue the conversation, give encouragement, or thank the person for their hyperlink or thoughts.

Baby Stationery

They ever so wonderful Erin over at Blue-Eyed Bride asked me to create something special for her baby boy. She wanted stationery that was not to “babyish” and looked like a southern boy. This is what I came up with! I am just head over heels in LOVE with the design. Thank you so much Erin! I so enjoy working with you.

Business Card Etiquette- who knew?

I just stumbled upon an etiquette site that said:
Business cards should never be exchanged while dining.
This is true even in the most informal dining situations.
I did not know this!
I always exchange cards at dinner or at lunch, how about everyone else?
Who knew about this secret etiquette rule and didn’t feel the need to tell me!!
So, The rule is: exchange cards after the meal is finished or when goodbyes are said.
I would love to hear every ones thoughts on this!

Which hand to use when sneezing and coughing

I am doing this post strictly for my sister
who is a Germaphobe and would like everyone to
know the correct way to sneeze or cough!
So here you go:
When sneezing or coughing use your left hand to cover you face.
keeping your right hand clean and sanitary for
shaking hands, opening doors, etc.
and of course… wash your hands often!
