Apparently this story of the sad blogger who got fired for his blog is spreading all over the country. Boston.com
reported the story today. However, I think everyone is getting a little over-zealous with this firing fear. Notice these key facts about the guy who got fired:
a) he was blogging about his job
b) he posted internal company information
c) he posted a photograph of a loading dock at his work.
Duh, of course you're going to get fired. I think the key to not getting fired for your blog is to not blog about your job
. I don't know why you would want to do that anyway. My whole reason for blogging is to force myself to think about things other than my job.
But I am keeping Blogger's article on how not to get fired on hand in case of emergency.
