What's Your Name Again?

Librarian writes a book about the "interesting" people at her library; a place she's worked for fifteen years. Doesn't use her real name, the real name of patrons. Tells, apparently, the truth, but in a humorous manner.

Gets fired.

And people wonder why bloggers use aliases.

My personal work/blog/write is simple, simple to me, at least. I don't use my last time, and shy away from identifying my employer. I don't blog on work time (exception: when my employers view it as part of my job, such as my contributions to the YALSA blog). I write as if everyone I know was reading what I write (friends, enemies, bosses, people I used to work with, etc.)

What rules do you follow for blogging? Are they personal (like most of mine) or imposed by work?

Thanks to lisnews for the article.
