There’s a lot of news lately about bloggers who get fired for writing about their jobs.
I, you may notice, write about work in general, but not about my day-to-day work life. Nor do I tell many people about this blog. I used to make a little noise, but it’s not something I jump up and down about.
So if youâ€™re here, congratulations. While I’m sure you’re intelligent, attractive, practically perfect in every way, and wouldn’t ever call me out for anything I say here… that don’t mean I trust y’alls.
This is not because I do anything illicit or double-super-secret or breathtakingly fascinating. It’s for a few very boring reasons.
I enjoy my job and have little to bitch about.
I try (usually unsuccessfully) not to be a gossip.
Also, I’m hella paranoid.
But, frankly, I enjoy my paycheck and I prefer to continue receiving it.
And I don’t want to get preachy or nothing, but I don’t understand why more people don’t think similarly. When the whole world could see what you publish, if they were so inclined (well, not China, but you know what I mean), that includes all the real people in your real life. It’s not calculus.
