Blorking: Blorking is “Blogging from Work” (and it also sounds a tad bit better than wogging – I think – wogging also sounds like something more fun than what you’d do at work). Blorking is what I do here at Blogspot’s “Oregon Legal Research.”
Blorkers have to be careful, which is not a bad thing. We have to watch what we say and how we say it, neither of which is a bad thing either. It’s just different from what non-Blorkers can do on their personal blogs (and I include those who are self-employed and don’t have a boss to keep them in line). There are Rules for Blorkers, so keep this in mind if you Blog from Work: There are very few blork posts that are worth losing your job over – and if there is one – it may just be the time to leave your job before doing something you will regret. Or, get yourself a personal blog and post to it on your own time.
I happen to love my job and the people I work with so prudent blogging might not allow me to let it all hang out, but I do get to blork about the best job in the world and pass along a few words of legal research wisdom and humor accumulated over almost 20 years of practice. And if blorking forces me to keep a few secrets, so be it. I’ve never been a woman of mystery, and if blorking makes me one, well, that’s kinda fun too.
See you in the Blorkosphere.
