One of the problems about writing a blog that everyone reads is that, well, everyone reads it. This makes it difficult to write about things you might not want certain people to know. It is, however, an essential skill to have when writing a blog that everyone reads. Fortunately, it’s a skill I’ve had a lot of practice with in working with Check Point. People who aren’t good at self-censorship have been known to get fired over their blog. I don’t want to be one of those people.
Right now, I’d like to write about something going on at work. It’s not particularly confidential in nature, but I don’t need the wrong people at work reading about it. Would I get fired? Probably not. Might it make my life more difficult if I talked about it? It may not even do that. I just don’t want everyone “knowing” about it.
