The tagline for Indy Theatre Habit is “Reviews and reflections related to all aspects of live theatre and storytelling in the Indianapolis, Indiana (USA) area.”
I started this blog at the end of January, 2008, learning as I went about blogging in general and about my blog in particular. I am still learning about writing and theatre and all of it, of course. I hope I always will be.
At the BlogIndiana conference in August of 2008 I attended a session on blogging ethics and etiquette given by Renee Wilmeth of FeedMeDrinkMe, a popular food and restaurant review blog at the time. Renee encouraged all bloggers who review any kind of product or service to articulate their review policies and share them on their blogs.
Here is mine:
I no longer accept media passes for Indy Theatre Habit. I started reviewing theatre for Nuvo (Indianapolis, Indiana’s alternative newsweekly) in March, 2014. I do ask for media passes from the theatres when I’m writing for Nuvo, as do the other people that review for Nuvo. All of my Nuvo assignments are approved first by my editor, Scott Shoger.
I buy a lot of tickets to see shows just for my own enjoyment and in that case I don’t owe anyone anything. However, I usually tweet (@IndyTheatre) at least a thought or two about every show I see, so I also try to make clear when I’m tweeting whether I’m there for Nuvo or just for myself.
And finally, a disclaimer, which I have had here on my blog since mid-August 2008:
