I have an internal work blog where I write about things
related to my job. I could have an external one through
my company but I want to be able to rant about internal
policies so I've chosen not to do that :->

I also have a personal blog on LiveJournal where I talk
about my life, travel reports, reviews, etc. A lot of
my friends are there so I like the ability to keep up
with their lives, too, plus it's a good place to aggregate
the RSS feeds I don't choose to get through MyYahoo.
LiveJournal is extremely easy to use and even friends
who aren't on it can read and comment on my blog.

I don't use my real name on LJ and never refer to my
employer by name.

I also have a web site, but it mostly consists of
static content that I update every once in a while,
mostly to clear out links that don't work any more
or update aggregate pages like trip reports or
conferences that I've attended.
