This is a great excerpt from the referenced article: Fired on Facebook: 

The importance of a personal brand is seldom well explained to juniors, and aspiring middle level careerists. It is nonetheless real. I certainly wish that I had done more of this in my mid 20s. I have had to involve HR on social networking related work posts with significant outcomes on more than a single occassion. 

FYI, my firm blocks are SNW execpt for DT.

I have mixed feelings on that. I did go back through my Facebook and untag a couple of pictures (the vinyl from D*C) once I started accumulating work-related friends. But I'm not going to untag, for example, the steampunk pictures or anything that's not particularly risque, even if it is weird. And my work-related griping is friendslocked, and usually not too specific anyway.

I figure if my employer is going to get spun up about the fact that I have a personal life and opinions, I probably don't want to be working for them anyway.

Yeah, I have strategy with a similar intent. No one from work gets onto LJ though - I am too lazy to go back and deal with all the freaking posts which I failed to tag in the first place.

Still cooking up a storm? Haven't seen too many new ones to try. The clothes 'splosion salad continues to deliver, BTW.

Yeah, I posted a pic to FB 8/8 of some tasty I cooked. Last night was homemade tomato soup with heirloom tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, onion etc. from the farmer's market.

Good to hear the salad is still working out - for repeat business you may need some additional tricks in your bag of wonders. :)

This is what I am saying...

I considered the ghetto grill concept... not sure that will have the same happy side effect.

Ah! In that case, I will have to try to be more adventurous in cooking and post the results -- your personal life depends on it!
