Fiction Blogs And Ethics

I came across a blog today that got me thinking. I could tell that it was fiction because it was written in the third person. What bothered me was that the blogger had created a profile for the character and could easily turn it into a mock blog. The blogger was ethical however, and told readers that the blog was fiction.

The very nature of blogging allows us to play with our realities. We can change our identities and create 'history' by manipulating post options. This is power and it can be abused. We must be responsible and ensure that no one is hurt by what we write.
