“Are We New At This?” or “Wordling Around”

October 30, 2010 Leave a comment

So I decided, before I get back to posting and blogging full-time, i should take a look back and see what is the length and breath of some of the topics I have covered here on the blog. This idea was inspired by the word cloud in this post. Some of the words make sense, such as:

  • warcraft
  • player
  • Blizzard
  • account
  • immersion
  • security

Others just didn’t make any sense, such as:

  • suddenly
  • 2/3
  • Brisbane
  • emotional
  • asks

See for yourself:

“Aaaaand Wee’re Back!” or “Douchebag Draconian Devils Die Hard!”

I launched this blog just over a year ago. Since then I have had to stop blogging three times, this last time with a termination threat. This would be because my company, a mass media organization, had an issue with me engaging in in any form of journalism outside of company work.

A Public Service Announcement for the HR Department at TMN!

In the last year I was asked not to blog, then given permission, then told there was a clause in my contact not allowing me to blog, then allowed again, and then my job was threatened if I didn’t stop blogging.

I am happy to report I am no longer with said company. I have joined a new organization, with a much more relaxed policy, and I can merrily continue writing for this little slice of the blogosphere that I have fought for so unnecessarily.

Posting (and possibly a new look) starts again today, hopefully for good this time, unless this company catches the same germs that cause the HR department at my prior company to suddenly transform into a talking walking dick.
