On Blogging

Laura over at the Spectrum Blog has a nice reflective piece about blogging; namely, how she is often conflicted about writing about her personal life on a very public forum. She also has several million more readers than I so for her writing about her personal life can have broad repercussions. She discusses blogging in regards to her dating life; I tend to think about it more in regards to job searching. Any hiring manager worth their salt in this day and age will google their perspective employees. Which is probably why I don't post about my workplace or coworkers. There were a few minor exceptions: I posted pictures of Chris and I at the annual Christmas party and I have occasionally posted pictures of coworkers in social situations (ex: Hiking Club outings and skiing lessons). I'm pretty good about asking people if they mind being up on the blog but it's definitely something I consider when posting photos. Anyway, for those of you that blog (God, I really hate that word. Couldn't they have come up with something else?), or for those of you interested in blogging, check it out.
