A PSA courtesy of the editorial staff at The Daily Purge.
Something that made my heart beep today (as my little one says)...
Some of you may remember me dancing crazily upon hearing the news of passing my CCFP exam. Well, as it turns out, my little blog is pretty Googlable. I got a very nice e-mail from someone pretty high up on the CCFP food chain today, asking me for feedback on the credential and the exam process. He found me, and this, via a Technorati search.
Turns out, he's a real sweetheart (thank goodness) and had some great insight on the Atkins diet as well as weight loss in general. As promised, I take back my "fad diet" designation for Dr. Atkins' original plan. I still say its not real life, however. He really was a joy to talk to, and he also helped me be not so embarassed about my little journal space.
Anyway, my point (and I do have one) is
THOU SHALT BE CAREFUL WHAT THOU BLOGGETH ABOUT
...especially if you have a career you're working very hard to build. A secondary point might be
THOU SHALT KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THY AUDIENCE
You establish your journal, your baby, with a certain audience in mind (friends, family, friends of friends of friends), often forgetting that there's a big fat cyberspace world out there that's made exponentially smaller by things like Google and Technorati. As hard as I try to separate my career from the other aspects of my life, its really pretty impossible. Its all me. I just have to be very careful and try to watch my very opinionated mouth a little. (JUST A LITTLE!) Hee.
PSA Concluded. Have a beautiful day.
