How not to get fired because you blog at work.
The fine art of stealth blogging.

"Do you blog at work? Do you check your referrer logs and surf the blogosphere all day from your office? Do you think it might be funny to mock your co-workers publicly, or that it could be a good idea to post photos of sensitive corporate information on your blog?...Fret not gentle blogger, we’ve put together this document to help you keep those paychecks rolling in."
There's More...

Cliff's Notes:

  • When posting pics, choose captions with discrimination

  • "Public" means public.

  • Be sneaky, change the date and time of your posts to re-inforce the illusion that you are a conscientious employee.

  • Modify your corporation's world view through dissemination of The Cluetrain Manifesto.

That was nice of them, don't you think? But maybe I can do better. Here goes... How to not get fired because you blog at work. Step One: Don't blog at work!
