Resources on blogging etiquette, personal branding, and online identity management

Today was the first day of the fall semester and soon the students in my social media class will begin blogging. For a lot of them, it will be their first time to do so. To help them get ready to enter the blogosphere, I have compiled a number of resources which I thought would be worth sharing here:
Blogging & Blogging Etiquette:
Guidelines for PR student blogs -- Richard Bailey
Etiquette in the Age of Social Media -- Chris Brogan
Call for a Blogger's Code of Conduct -- O'Reilly Radar
Bloggers' FAQ: legal issues arising from student blogging -- Electronic Frontier Foundation
Disclosure Best Practices Toolkit -- The Blog Council

Commenting on a Blog:
Comments about comments -- Karen Russell
Geek to Live: Lifehacker's guide to weblog comments -- Lifehacker

Managing your Online Reputation:

Update 9/11: Chris Brogan just published a free e-book on personal branding that is worth checking out

Excellent collection of resources, Corinne! This is actually just the kind of information I was looking for (doing some research on online rep. management for students).

By the way, are you on Twitter?

Hi Megan - You should also check out Dan Schawbel's blog on this issue ( I just discovered it and it contains a lot of good info on the topic.

Good luck with your new job - sounds exciting!
