I’m not sure if ESRI has a corporate blogging policy, but I can tell you that my company does not. Some day I’m sure that the blogging policy will be part of every employee’s handbook, but until that day I thought I’d share some examples on the Internet that I use as my own personal blogging policy.
* Yahoo! Personal Blog Guidelines - PDF
* IBM blogging policy and guidelines - HTML * Feedster Corporate Blogging Policy - HTML * Thomas Nelson Blogging Guidelines - HTML
* Charlene Li’s Blogging policy examples - HTML * Robert Scoble’s Corporate Weblog Manifesto - HTML
If you are unsure if you are allowed to blog, print out some of the policies above and talk to your supervisor or HR rep. Going in with a policy is much better than being found out via a Google search and then reprimanded.
