Let’s Talk About Integrity!

by Susan

There’s been too much negativity mucking up the blogosphere. It’s time to start talking about integrity.

If you’re a regular reader here at 5 Minutes for Mom, you’ll know that Janice and I love to be positive. We never gripe or bash other bloggers. We like to keep our site free from negativity and instead create a place where women can be uplifted and supported.

But lately, as I’m sure you’re aware, the blogosphere has been infected with bad juice from all directions. Janice and I have been biting our tongues and holding back from posting about any of it.

And thankfully, now we have something positive to say…

Susan Getgood, Liz Gumbinner, Kristen Chase, and Julie Marsh have initiated a movement called Blog With Integrity.

Blog with IntegrityBlog With Integrity is a pledge to adhere to a simple code of conduct that emphasizes our commitment to our readers and our community. We signed the pledge and we’re proudly displaying the badge on our site to let visitors know we value disclosure and respect.

At the Social Luxe party during BlogHer 09, Janice talked to one of the Blog With Integrity founders, Liz Gumbinner.

So what about you?

Do you want to tell the world that you are a blogger with integrity? Display the badge and sign the pledge and let’s fill the blogosphere with positive vibes and a good dose of integrity!

Kmart DesignWe want to shout out a huge thanks to our video sponsor Kmart Design.

We sincerely appreciate Kmart helping us produce these video interviews so that we can bring the BlogHer 09 experience home to you.

They invited a few of us for a fabulous styling event and we wore many Kmart outfits and accessories throughout the conference. (In fact, the accessories Janice is wearing in this video were given to us by Kmart.)

We are proud to be supported by a store that is so affordable and is helping women satisfy their desire for style while still balancing the family budget.
