Here I go again....

Painful discoveries:

 I had a blog that I loved, and had been writing on for 3 years.  I wrote about everything - my cancer diagnosis and treatment - my friends - family - work.  I naively believed that it was fairly anonymous.  How wrong I was.

Apparently a patient in the office I worked at discovered my blog, and my boss was understandably upset because I had written some not too kind words about my co-workers.  I never mentioned anyone's name, not even my own, so I don't know how he found it.  My boss is livid, and he might fire me tomorrow.  I don't know what I will do if he does.

I'm sorry.  Sorry for believing I could write whatever I wanted without reprisal since I incorrectly assumed that no one would bother reading it or even look for it.  Sorry that I was inconsiderate of my co-workers.  I was not kind, which counts even if they didn't know about the blog.  This is my new leaf.

I vow that I will not write about my co-workers.  Ever.  I will write about school, home, friends, but never work (if I'm still employed tomorrow).

See you soon...365


  1. Oh my gosh. That's terrible! I posted the name of the work comp attorney in a fit of anger one night and they spent HOURS trying to find things on my blog that were actionable. They tried to make me lose my job over it.

    I don't know if it's possible to write with complete anonymity, but I wish you luck!!

    Should I link to you on my sidebar or would you rather I not?

  2. Go for it! I'm good now, I didn't get fired, I get two days off next week (w/o pay, but I'm going to enjoy it anyway). Thanks for commenting, Ami! I always enjoy reading your blog.

  3. Yeah, it's hard to just write whatever you like about work. Blogging gives us a place to vent, and if no names are mentioned they can't really do anything about it. It's not like they don't talk about their workers.

    Yet I make it a habit to never talk about a company until after I leave it for several years. And even then I never mention names.

    1. Thanks Michelle. Unfortunately the lack of names didn't help me much, but I think it's important to keep things as anonymous as possible unless it's kudos, in which case you can write all you want. I suppose it's like my Mom always said: If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all ~ but dang, how am I gonna bitch about it then? ha ha
