A Thank You Note And A Hippocratic Oath For Bloggers 

Hi all fellow bloggers!

I am so glad to be here again after a gap.

As many of my blogger friends  knew about the problem which I was facing last week with my webpage.

All of a sudden my page went down and the timely intervention of my long time friend and brother Rejoy Poomala of, who was helping me in developing these pages were able to relocate/recover the page backup.  Thank you Rejoy for the timely intervention with the web hosters.  It was later decided to change the server to avoid such problems in future.

In this regard, I had a talk with my other longtime  online friend , a pro blogger Atish Ranjan, the  SEO of TechTricksWorld.Com  offered his unconditional help  in restoring  and migrating the pages to a different server.  And by the relentless efforts of Mr. Atish  everything was put back on track and thus here I am with this note! :-)

Thank you Atish for the pain you have taken  to bring this page back to normal! :-)

Since the page was down, I was on the regular visit to  my fellow bloggers pages and found out a wonderful page today, which is a must read for all bloggers! Beginners as well as pro bloggers!

In fact, I could not wait, but  posted this on my pages!

Yes, a post supposed to be here went into my other page and I brought it back here immediately after the restoration of this platform.

A must page to all the bloggers to read before they start a blog page!

Here  is the post with a note:

Hi All,

My fellow bloggers at Philipscom.

I am happy to be here again with a special note/post I found  today on the pages of the famous  Indian  blogger Harleena Singh.  She is also known as the “Comment Queen” in the blogging Industry.   Yes, her pages AhaNOW and the recently created blogging community ABC will talk more about this wonderful woman blogger.  Recently she created  yet another page called  wherein she started her first blog post with a wonderful post which no one ever thought of or posted!

Yes, the one I am talking about the very basics a blogger  should follow or take note of before starting a blog!  She coined a set of Oaths based on the  modern medical Hippocratic Oath.  She very well put that in order to take the oath.

I am sure this will be a wonderful step and a must oath to take!

If followed it diligently, I am sure one can be a successful and honored blogger in the great ocean of blogging!

Thank you Harleena for coining this oath in step with the famous medical oath.

I really appreciate you for doing this, that too in the appropriate time! Along with the opening of your new venture.

I wish you this new venture a great success!

And I pray that, God may give you the necessary wisdom to follow these steps and take the new page to the higher level!

Wish you all the best.

I am so glad to re-blog the post on my page with your kind permission.

Thank you Harleena.
Keep Going!
Keep Sharing!
Have A Great Time Of Blogging!
Sharing And Caring!

I will respect the wisdom of others I learn from and gladly share such
knowledge with those who are to follow.
I will help the newbie and other bloggers in whichever way possible. It

I will remember that blogging is more than writing online updated
journals. It is a means of spreading values, enabling empowerment, providing
knowledge, and expression of freedom.
I will never misuse my influence and power of blogging to cause harm to
others in anyway. I understand that with great power comes greater
responsibility, and I’ll prove myself worthy.
I will not abuse blogging as a means to cheat and mislead people for my
selfish motives of earning money. I’ll always disclose and reveal if I stand to
benefit in my blog posts.
I will be honest and humble to admit my mistakes and correct them. I’ll
never intentionally create content with false information and will always
include disclaimers, wherever necessary.
I will observe transparency in my blogging ways and be truthful in all
my blogging efforts. I’ll give due credit where required and discourage others
from cheating or indulging in malpractice.
I will remember that I remain a member of the society and have special
obligations to my fellow bloggers. Whatever I do, I’ll always uphold the values
of humanity and the esteem of bloggers, and never fall for evil temptations.
If I faithfully observe this oath, may I prosper in my
profession and live a life being respected and remembered with affection
May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of
my calling and may I long experience the joy of blogging for those who seek my

  3. Hi Phil,

    Sorry for hopping in late, but glad to have made it :)

    Let me start by thanking you from the bottom of my heart for sharing the blogger’s oath with your blog audience and your social followers. It really means a lot.

    I’ve written nothing that is new or that bloggers are not aware of, but I tried giving it a proper shape in a popular form of Hippocratic Oath. That for sure catches attention.

    I agree with you that following this Oath will bring the blogger repute and respect. And it will make the blogosphere healthy and pure. It’s not actually a post but a resource page for bloggers – I yet have to start with posts on my new blog :)

    Good to know that Atish helped, as he is a very helpful blogger – that’s what friend’s are for, isn’t it?

    Thank you for your wishes and compliments, I’m humbled and happy. Wish you all the best in your wonderful blogging efforts. :)

  5. Hi Philip,

    This is my first time to your blog & what a post to start with!

    This single piece offers a lot of things to absorb. But until unless we start working on those, it’s very difficult to excel further. Thank you so much for the great share.

    Hope to read more of your articles soon. Take care :)

    Hey Harleena, Congratulations for such a nice creation & thanks for the awesome words :)

  6. Hi Philip,

    Love the new look of your blog! Only goes to show we all need each other when we are bloggers lol. I have read Harleena’s “Hippocratic Oath” for bloggers a while back. It is pure genius.

    I think we all need to take this oath if we are going to blog. It is ethics that get us somewhere in life.

    Thank you so much for writing this.

  7. Hey Phillip,
    Thanks for sharing this post from Harleena. She is indeed an amazing woman! I truly like the part of the oath that states: “…blogging is more than writing online updated journals. It is a means of spreading values, enabling empowerment, providing knowledge, and expression of freedom.”
    This is what blogging is all about. Hopefully, newbie and pro bloggers alike will find value in keeping to this!
    Congratulations to her for the new venture! I with her success and prosperity!

    By the way, I am happy that your friends came calling when the chips were down. I am also happy that your backup and restoration issue were resolved. It happens to the best of us, but we only need to take precautions! Internet business comes with its unexpected down times and disappointments!

    I really liked this Oath. Very interesting and very honest as well.

    Keep up the great work guys!

  9. Hi Philip,

    So glad you got your problems resolved – what an awful moment it is when you find your blog destroyed and all that work potentially lost. It’s happened to me and what a shock to the system first time.

    So pleased you are back and with good hosting, courtesy of Rejoy Poomala and Atish Ranjan. How wonderful that these bloggers stepped in to help you.

    That links well into Harleena’s Hippocratic Oath for bloggers – especially the part about remaining a member of the society and having special obligations to my fellow bloggers. Rejoy and Atish have certainly satisfied THAT.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, Joy
