The 20 Commandments of the Blogging Bible

Letters Home to You wrote “The 20 Blogging Commandments”, a brilliant twist on the 10 Commandments from the “long-lost fragment of the WordPress Blogging Bible, which he now realizes would have been a great help to a first-time blogger undertaking this most difficult of tasks.”

This bible is not limited to WordPress bloggers. I believe every blogger must read these 20 commandments, from which these are a few samples:

1. Yea as you walk in the Shadow of the Valley of Ideas which come not, post ye not for its own Sake, for it is better to have a Week with no Posts than an array of seven Posts about Naught.
…4. Read the Scriptures contained in the Forum at, a veritable Font of Assistance in Matters technical and otherwise.
…8. Be ye vigilant in consulting Lorelle on WordPress. Inasmuch as her Blog be full of wise Teachings, take ye not her entire Word for Gospel Truth.
9. Seek out the Company of other Bloggers, for it is in placing your Comment on theirs that they will be led back to you.
10. Fret ye not should said Bloggers not comment on thine, for they may liken your Blog to the worm-filled Droppings of a diseased Camel, and be repulsed thereby.
11. Though ye may be of the Opinion that certain Ideas and Posts of other Bloggers be the product of a deranged Mind, be ye kind: lead yourself not into the Temptation of entering the Realm of flame Warfare, for what is written on their Blog in Rage and Fury can return to bite thee in the nether regions.

I hope it brings light and smiles into your life and you convert to WordPress immediately. If that isn’t one of the commandments, it should be. 😀

    An interesting and entertaining post. We are just about to venture into the blogging world (not sure why it has taken us so long) so any and all tips are helpful.

    Hi Lorelle,

    I had lot of fun writing that post. Seeing that so many more people got a chance to read it thanks to you is one of the best back-from-vacation bit of news I’ve had in a long time. Thank you very much!

    Thank you for your arduous efforts – guiding us through the process of “self taught” blogging.

    New blogger.
