I do Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, here, YouTube.

The company I work for has linked to most of the above.

I am always worried that what I post may offend someone higher up. At the same time, I refuse not to be myself and to remain quite when I see the stupid.

So now, whenever I post, I alway think first, what is the best way to say what I want, in such a way that there is no doubt about my option and feelings on the subject, and yet won't get me fired or damage any future prospects I may have.

 I post just a little less than I used to and each post takes a little longer before I hit the send button, but is that really not a good thing, should I not have been doing that all along?

I recently "unsubscribed" from Facebook.  You can deactivate your account, but you cannot clear it.  It is like the Hotel California where "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

Nothing on me when I use just my name but if I type my actual name and atheist in google then is comes up with anything I've commented on on Facebook but also every picture I've uploaded to my blog and I don't use my name on it at all - so it must trace it to my email address??

I found out some interesting things about myself that I had not known previously:  I am director of a mortgage bank in Michigan, and I play water polo for Australia.

Now these are handy things to know when you review your CV.

I’m not sure putting “director of a mortgage bank in Michigan” on your CV has been a good idea ever since October 2008 — unless you mean to avoid getting job offers or your hobby involves being chased by lynch mobs…
