Change Is in the Air

I am currently in the final stages of negotiating a contract to do part-time organizing for an advocacy group that I've thus far volunteered with. Inevitably, this will change things somewhat here at the Akron pages. For one thing, I anticipate far fewer posts candidate-centered politics and more about public policy -- less naming names and calling people out and more discussion of what is to be done. For another, I may need to rethink how I blog about education issues.

I say this as a heads-up, but also as a plea for advice. As I think this through, I'd love to hear from people with experience navigating between a professional and a blogging life. You can start a discussion in comments or email me at pho197 (at) hotmail (dot) com. TIA.

Wishing you the best of luck, Pho. They're lucky, and we're lucky, to have you working for whichever entity it is. I look forward to hearing more (seeing as how I like the education stuff too).

I don't have a blog but I just comment on other people's blogs. When I do, and when it's something that involves where I work or the industry or whatever, I usually give a disclaimer that I'm involved in such&such or whatever, none of the opinions here should be considered those of company X or organization Y or whatever. I think that between that, being careful not to discuss anything that isn't supposed to be public, and not using it as a way of promoting your job or whatnot, you should be in the clear.

I think Chris Geidner's dealt with this discussion on his blog.
