Does Your Employer Fear You Blogging?
Krista on the Northeastern Advanced Communications blog writes about a story she found on Bostonworks.com about the benefits of blogging for your career.
One of my colleagues in a local business association told me recently that his old company used to view people who joined such associations as people who were looking to switch jobs. If that's the case should an employer worry when an employee starts to blog?
Rather I'd say an employer should encourage their employees to further their careers and education. That every time you join an organization or explore new ideas you are investing in yourself. That investment will eventually pay off, I don't know when or where, but eventually it will. My advice is to start blogging as an individual if it meets your goals of learning more about your industry. I think both you and your employer will see a payoff.
