Rant Blog

This weekend, I was informed that my blog here is a good “rant blog”. I hadn’t given it too much thought until then, but maybe I do complain about life, work, and school more than I should around here. Today, Slashdot linked to a CNN article about people who have lost their jobs over things that they posted in their blogs. I don’t think that I have crossed that line here, but on a couple of occasions I have probably gone closer to the edge than I should have. At this stage in my life the last thing that I need is to be expelled from school, or to loose my job over some comment that I made here on my blog.

When I started this blog, I thought that I would keep it completely private and unidentifiable, but there is enough information here to identify me. I don’t know who really reads what I write, but I do know that there are a few.

I guess the moral of the story for today is that there are many ways to say the same thing, and when publishing for the “world” it would be best to be on record with words that you can live with.

ahh don't worry about it. I hope what mister "wa-i-ru-do" and I said about this being a "rant-blog" doesn't make you want to change the whole format. Just write what you want to. That is the one of the many beauties of the free world.
