Last week, I realized, through various means, that more people from my work have read my blog, more than I currently thought. I’m not exactly sure how they find this little dog and pony show but I’m sure putting a link on my Facebook profile helped a lot. Also, there’s always the good old stalker stand-by, the Google.
The interesting thing is, even if every single person on my team read my blog (and I’m certain that would never happen), I wouldn’t really change what or how I write. There’s a few reasons for that. First, as many of my long time readers would attest to, the stuff I pen here is pretty mundane and non-controversial. Oh sure, once in a while, I’ll report on wang-files but for the most part, this blog struggles to stay one level above this one. Second, I’ve been doing this since 2002. I’ve had a long time to witness the emergence of how blogs can affect people and the world. I’ve duly noted the times where people’s blogs and workplace collide in a non-awesome manner. As such, I’m very careful about what I write pertaining to work and my colleagues. That hasn’t stopped me from writing about my job though. As you can tell, a lot of my posts are about work and I’d like to think some of them are even entertaining. Also factor in that at times, I have to tiptoe around intellectual property disclosures and you can see there are lots of areas where if I strayed into, things would get messy for me.
I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll write it again, thanks to all my readers, from whatever demographic they come from, for reading and supporting this little endeavour. I’ll let everyone know when I’ve mailed out the et.com keychains to you.
