I never thought to have a blog could actually become my disadvantage.
Never have I ever thought being creative is a bad thing.
In this world it sometimes is, so it seems.
Yesterday I got fired from my job. One of the reasons was this blog. How did they know about it in the first place? That I would like to know. I never even mentioned I had a blog.
I am not an IT expert but this is what I think: No matter if you post something anonymously, it can always be traced back to you. On social networks, blogs, online discussions etc you should always think twice before posting anything because even if after some time it might seem what you posted is long forgotten – it is not. Online we are exposed. If you think “privacy settings” can be relied upon, it is not true.
If they want to – they know everything about you.
And the creativity? Well… in some places it is not a desirable value. In some places they prefer machines. They are more predictable after all.
