Happy Birthday to Me
By Geertjan-Oracle on Mar 31, 2010
And this is today's blog entry, i.e., this one you are now reading:
I've learnt an unlikely amount of things via blogging. I've learnt, more than anything, that an organization that encourages blogging is a creative place to work. And, implicit in that, to me, is the notion that a blogger should be allowed to blog about anything they want, otherwise what's the point? Blogging is about expressing your feelings about something, where feelings are neither positive nor negative. "Congratulate when appropriate, complain when necessary," has been my unstated guideline. And being constrained to only blog on business-related topics is just so wrong, since a central point of business blogs is to show the people that make up the business.
Anyway, here's looking forward to lots of blog entries about vacations, pets, and funny things that happened on the way to work! And the things learned there, of course, that are all the more interesting for being shared between the random oddities that make up a life.
