Mr. Gammel found a good aggregate reference to corporate blogging policies (Yahoo!, IBM, Plaxo and Sun) and posted it for us on the ASAE technology listserves. To me, these rules seem pretty intuitive. They are all basically saying don’t do anything stupid.

  • be nice (i.e. don’t criticize your organization or your manager)
  • don’t give away company secrets/information
  • don’t blog if you have work to do
  • abide by existing company rules.

Everybody has rules for something. So if you are a daily blogger and blogging on a personal blog and not a company blog, don’t abuse it! These basic rules should be simple enough to follow.
