Found this on Tuvel:Mitch Arnowitz.
-Guy with a blog “googles” a perspective employer prior to his job interview.
-Company loves that our blogger friend has researched the firm.
-Company returns the favor and “googles” our blogger friend.
-Company finds our blogger friend’s blog.
-Company offers our blogger friend a job…BUT… with the understanding he does not blog during working hours.
“I figured I’d still have time to blog on evenings and weekends, but time has proven me wrong. I’m working long hours in this job — I expected that, after how late my interview had gone — but what I didn’t realize was how valuable my remaining free time would start to be. As much as I enjoy it, blogging on evenings and weekends is time spent away from my wife and son.”
-Nothing posted since March 2004.
-From comments posted it was a good blog.
–Gedankenpundit you are missed.
If you’re blogging from work use the timing thing on your blog software.
