Be Nice On The Internet Week

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.  ~Author Unknown

The internet is a great place to meet like-minded people, to receive support, and to pursue health. However, most of us who blog can agree on one thing- negative, rude, or downright hateful comments are not only hurtful, but can drag down any day. In general, we would each do better to think before we speak, and to cut down on the hurtful attacks we make on others (and even ourselves). 

This week, Real Simple Magazine has initiated a "return to online civility" via their be nice on the internet week. There's an etiquette to communication, whether online or in person, that we should each adhere to, but it is easily forgotten. 

My challenge to you this week: create for yourself a list of criteria or etiquette expectations for yourself both in online and face-to-face communication. Practice one new step for each week!

Now it's your turn:
What rules regarding communication (online or in person) do you adhere to?
