Should Employees Blog?

What are the rules?


Blogging has spread throughout the internet. It's not just geeks yelling in an echo room or kids babbling in MySpace. Corporate blogging is a reality.

What should the guidelines be?

Michael Hyatt has put together some suggestions for his company:
Like many companies, we have struggled with what guidance to give to our bloggers. I personally checked with several companies. None had formalized a set of blogging rules or written guidance.
One Microsoft blogger told me that the only rule his company provided was, "Be smart." I thought we probably needed a little more guidance than that, so several of us cooked up a list of "Blogging Terms and Conditions." Our corporate counsel has also had a crack at it.

Samuel Pepys:
You can subscribe to an RSS feed of daily entries from Pepys' 1660 diary at The Diary of Samuel Pepys.
A new entry written by Pepys will be published each day; 1 January 1660 was published on 1 January 2003.

Robert Scoble, former Microsoft Evangelizer:
Scobleizer
How your blog will get discovered


Here are some references to Web Logs

MSDN Magazine:

"Q - What is blogging all about?

A - First, "blog" is short for Web log. It's a medium in which an author writes a journal-style Web site with provisions for readers to respond. These Web logs are becoming quite valuable in the software community for sharing ideas."

Surrogate Image Server

Temporary


"When posting on message boards or blogs, often you want to show or link to an image on another website. Directly showing or linking to that image is called hot-linking. It's generally bad because it leeches bandwidth from the host site, and as a result many webmasters have their servers set up to prohibit hot-linking.


ImgRed.com lets you simply enter the original URL in your post as you normally would, but with http://imgred.com/ written before the URL. When this is viewed, the image will be copied once* to imgred.com, and from then on the image will always be served from imgred.com instead of the host site.



*ImgRed is not an archive service, and occasionally its cache is cleared out (once a month or so), so images are not literally cached forever.
