It’s been a bit quiet here on the blog. It’s not that I haven’t had things to say, it’s just that I haven’t figured out if I can say them.
A new policy came out at work, one that spells out all kinds of restrictions and requirements for any employee or contractor using social media. Since I’m on social media quite a bit, it became a bit of a dilemma for me. I blog from my perspective as a daughter, sister, friend, parent, pastor and chaplain. I blog with an awareness that my work intersects with someone’s hardest days and weeks that they will ever experience.
I have been mulling over some of the fine points…
What’s my personal reflection?
When does it border on someone else’s?
When does it infringe on someone’s right to privacy?
Can I express anything other than the very simplest “had a great day!” (Which is kind of drivel I really try hard not to write!)
What is my message, anyway? And does anyone want to read it? (This last reflection is the result of reading a “vanity press” kind of memoir as a favor and shuddering… gag it was painful to read.)
I’m dithering on this and, at the moment, haven’t exactly resolved my questions. SOoooo… there’s several blog posts sitting there in DRAFT mode, waiting…
Be patient. I’ll be back.
