Mind you, sometimes the tools can be used for good. I used a few online resources (facebook and others) to crack a local graffiti gang here in Regina (could a Crimestoppers Reward be covering my hosting bill for the next few years?). I am amazed at how stupid vandals can be online, they left the most amazing breadcrumb trail back to their identities, and in some cases, documented their own crimes.

Great post, nice compilation of informative links too, thanks.

I actually had a blog stalker send me gifts from my wishlist, although he was harmless it did awaken me to being a little less detailed on my blog when it came to locations and other information.

You bring up some really important points, Katherine.

A blogger can't really try to please every possible visitor to their blog.

And I don't self-censor my blog posts very much, although sometimes I have misgivings about being a bit extreme in my viewpoints.

Then again, one must have a unique, somewhat aggressive voice, to have a distinct blog, wouldn't you agree?

I'm self-employed, and don't plan on ever working for a company again, I like being my own boss.

So I don't have to worry about the employee-employer blog rules or restrictions.

Still, I have to realize that potential clients, book publishers, and other important people could read my blog and form an impression of my character, professionalism, and expertise.

So I refrain from vulgar language (as found on many popular personal blogs), typos, grammatical errors, rash statements unsupported by facts, etc.

Thanks for the comments!



This is a great post, Steven. Amen. I don't like...

This is a great post, Steven. Amen. I don't like the idea of wasting readers' time with stories about what I had for dinner or what happened at the grocery store, anyway. But I see now that it's also a good idea not to share too much, just to protect onesself. On the issue of how it affects your career, though, I don't care. That's why I'm a blogger. I think truly good bloggers are people who don't censor themselves just to make sure they please everyone. For those that are mainly concerned about advancing their careers, I submit that perhaps they shouldn't be bloggers.
