A Very Nervous Blogger
I'm a very nervous blogger. I've read too many horror stories of people being sacked for inadvertently saying the wrong thing. As a consultant / contractor the decision would be an easy one for my customers - no tribunal, no notice period, just "Your services are no longer required".
So, sorry folks but you won't be getting any inside track on any industry programmes, there will be no dirt dished and if I could find a whistle it would stay unblown. As it says on the sidebar of the blog, I am open to criticism, correction and abuse. Ask me nicely and I'll remove posts, ask me nastily and I'll fold like a pack of cards. Take offence at my username and I'll point out that I have no affiliations, that I'm generally eclectic in my outlook and that's really all it says about me. No-one should read anything else into it all..., family to feed and all that. Getting the picture?
So I was heartened to see that the IT policy of my current customer included a section on Blogging that was neither dismissive or prescriptive. Not in company time, don't talk about us or your work. That was about it. Sensible stuff.
I hope this doesn't count as talking about them..... Ah. Someone let me know if I need to find the delete button will you?
