Question - want to make sure I don't break the rules

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I want to make sure I don't break any self promotion rules. Is this an acceptable post since I do not mention my blog's name and do not include any links? I've been a member of this forum for years.

"Hey parents - I'd like to put together a list of positive quotes from kids with Celiac. Quotes will be posted on my blog anonymously (I'm not including my blog's name/link because I don't want to break and self promotion rules - just looking to do something inspiring and positive for the community). Please feel free to comment or message me directly :) 1. What's the best part about having Celiac Disease? 2. What is better now that you eat gluten free? 3. What would you want to tell other kids your age who just got diagnosed?"


Diagnosed with IBS - Fall 2007

Diagnosed with Celiac via blood test (tTg off the charts) - March 18th, 2011

Gluten free as of March 25th, 2011 and going strong!

Positive biopsy April 1st, 2011

 

Blood test results back down to normal levels November 2012

Why not just do a post asking the 3 questions, not mentioning your blog, and asking for responses rather than personal messages? So a simple post like:

I have 3 questions for everyone, and  I'd like to put together a list of positive quotes from kids with Celiac (I hope to add these anonymously to my blog):

1. What's the best part about having Celiac Disease? 

2. What is better now that you eat gluten free?

3. What would you want to tell other kids your age who just got diagnosed?"

Because I think the moral thing to do is inform the parents that quotes from their kids will be posted online. I include the option to message me because some parents prefer to not post about their children publicly. 

 

I’m pretty sure it doesn’t violate any self promotion since my blog’s name/my full name isn’t stated. Like if someone mentions they work at a restaurant. They aren’t promoting the restaurant, they are just giving context.
