According to today's Metro (a free newspaper distributed at train stations), here's how you can ensure safe blogging.
- Understand that actions equal consequences: Words are powerful, so know that if you say something it may or may not follow you for the next couple of years.
- Try to find your niche: In most cases, there are more than several people writing about the same thing. The tamer the better, especially if you are working for a high profile company.
- Make sure your employers are kept in the loop: Some companies may have strict guidelines as to what can be printed on the Internet as an employee. Best to check with the human resources department before you create one.
