While I’m trying to figure out how I managed to muck up my GOF post royally, here’s a piece of injustice I picked up mid-week from Ohmynews. In the 3 years that she’s been blogging, PetiteAnglaise has only written about a dozen (about 14) posts relating to work. It calls to mind the famous blogger who was dooced because of blogging, and for whom the term became a permanent inclusion in a dictionary. Wow!
Which brings me to a topic that’s been swirling in my mind quite a bit: self expression vs job security. Where is the line that defines a breakdown of trust? But before I get too carried away, just out of curiosity … does your employer and collegaues at work know that you keep a blog?
Do you make it a point not to talk about work on your blog?
What would constitute a breakdown? Making references in passing? Nick naming co-workers and discussing incidents from work?What other topics do you avoid? Will you ever, ever break down and start blogging about work after going all out not to talk about it?
[Update: I gave up trying to fix the error, instead I restored the database, then posted the GOF entry and this again. ]
