Blogging & Tweeting Etiquette & Chat Transcript 3/28

We chatted about Blogging Etiquette on Monday, and things got dramatic. During the chat, the topic of Blogging Etiquette turned to blogging pet peeves, and many chatters weighed in on things they disliked within the craft blogging community. @Crafterminds stepped on some toes during the chat, and we wanted to let everyone know that we are sorry.

Our Apologies

Immediately after the chat was over, I personally contacted the offended party and expressed my apologies that the chat became offensive. In my mind, the matter was settled, and she agreed in her response to my message. Additionally, Beckie, who was moderating the chat as @crafterminds also contacted the offended party and wrote a sincere apology note.

We believe we have made good on our offense. #crafterminds was not the right forum to make any complaints, and we’re sorry we Tweeted anything that could be seen as offensive.

Our Promise to the Craft Community

Crafterminds exists to help craft bloggers (and other bloggers) make sense of blogging and all the opportunities that come their way. We promise that we will keep the #crafterminds chat a friendly and positive place where anyone can come and safely chat about craft blogging. We value crafters of all stripes, whether they be craft designers, craft bloggers, crafty businesspeople, or craft artisans that sell their wares, and welcome them to come join us.

  1. Thank you for the apologies. They are appreciated. I have written on our site to our members that I think, despite the issue, that I think your twitterchat is a positive resource for our community and its members. I hope to have this whole issue behind us.

    Thank you Becky & Heather for your professionalism in this little hiccup!

  2. Ok. I missed half the chat, but as always, you ladies got me thinking.
    I wish I caught the part about link parties.

    As a new blogger, it took me a few months to realize the importance of linking back within my posts to parties. (which I do now via an inlinkz set-up)
    And I’ve scaled way back on the # of parties I join over the past year. But now I’m wondering if I should scale back even more. I definetely link a project to more than 3 parties (maybe 5-8). I’m torn because I really want to support bloggers & their parties. And I also enjoy linking and mingling w/ other linkers.
    Lots to mull over, thanks!

      @madigan, I think if you think it through and have your own reasons for joining a linky party, then do whatever you decide to do! Nobody’s going to judge you!

      I personally have no idea who joins what linky parties or how many they join. I never retain that info when I am visiting a blog! 🙂 The only people I remember are the ones who visited from a linky party, commented on my site once with a nice comment, and then I noticed that they visited a friend’s blog with the very same nice comment. #commentfail!

      Hey Madigan! I think linky parties can be great – you just have to weigh the work vs. benefit to you. It might be just because you want to meet other people! I ALWAYS link to a friend’s really small Sunday party b/c the projects are super duper good and I love the inspiration.

    Thanks so much for repoting the chat, went over it in case I might have missed any good info. 🙂

    That’s too bad someone was offended, I didn’t notice anything offensive during the chat. But then maybe that’s cause I’m not easily offended. 🙂

    I have so much respect for you ladies, thanls for being so awesome!
