One of the first things I noticed at my new workplace, was that internet access was pretty locked down. Several of my favourite sites were blocked, including ign.com, xbox.com and hi5.com. But today, when I found out that myspace.com was also blocked, I decided to read the Internet Access Policy, which comes up whenever a website is blocked. I found out that:
1. All internet usage and email is monitored.
2. If you misuse the company IT, you can be dismissed.
So I decided to read the policy in full. One line caught my attention. The long and short of it, I'm not allowed to blog at work. As a result, I'm considering whether to pack it in, and stop blogging once and for all. I've blogged for 2 and a half years now, and expressing myself online has helped me deal with a lot of diffcult times, and made the good times even more special. It's a tough decision to make, and to be honest, it would break my heart if I had to stop blogging.
I'll try blogging from home in the evenings and weekends for a while, and see how it goes. But this means, it will be harder to follow other blogs, but I promise to try !! In a month, I'll look at how it's going and make a decision then.
