This is the original post from the day Heather B. Armstrong was fired for her blogging activities. The question she poses are:
“Should I lose my job over what I have written on my personal website, especially if I have made sure not to mention specific places, persons, or events by name?
2. At what point does my personal website, regardless of what I’ve published on the site, affect my professional life? If I am not responsible for the two colliding (meaning, an anonymous person tips off my employer that I run a personal weblog), is it right that my employer should condemn me for expressing personal dissatisfaction? Would it be any different if someone found a notepad on which I had scribbled things about my job and turned it in to my boss?”
These are at the heart of the blogging/corporate collide.
