Reduced Posting

I've been trying to keep up with the blog, but unfortunately I'm on information overload at the moment, which is making it almost impossible for me to write anything. Between working overtime on a major project (which requires, among other things, a lot of low-level expression building in Access and Crystal Reports 11.0), practicing longsword, and training for my new position, my brain is hardly functioning.

The solution would be to write about work, but I think it'd be best to hold off on that until after my situation has stabilized somewhat. I remember reading that a lot of companies don't want their employees to blog; they worry about their workers airing "dirty laundry" in public. I don't particularly feel like losing my job so I that can gripe about my boss, who is equally overworked and probably not at his best in any case.

I would strongly advise against blogging much at all about work. Another blogger on my 'roll, Riding Sun, has a saying, "You are writing for your next boss."

You don't want a boss worrying that you're writing about work. Correct or not, a logical conclusion on his part would be that you'll air dirty laundry.

I confine myself to only the most incidental and mundane remarks about my work when I do mention it at all.

*chuckle* I'm always writing for my next boss, that being me.

It is still hard to write when you are tired and grouchy.
