#OLists Happy Hour

I’m eagerly looking forward to tonight’s #OList Twitter Happy Hour, given the two topics for discussion:

This week’s Appetizer: If you are a blogging parent, how do you handle the issues that come up around blogging about your kids and family life? Do you hold particular boundaries that dictate what you will and will not share on the blog, or do you take an “anything goes” approach? Finally, have your boundaries or standards in this area changed or evolved over time, as your kids get older – or do you expect them to?

This week’s Drink Special: Do you blog about your work and/or clients? If so, are you up front about it, or do you keep it a deep dark secret? Do you censor your content, or boldly speak what’s on your mind, or some combination of the two? What do you think about “telling all” while sanitizing the relevant identifying information? Have you ever gotten in trouble with a client, co-worker, or employer over your blog’s content?

I love those topics! Personally, I’ve chosen to blog openly about some rather personal details about my hypothyroidism, but I’ve always been rather discreet about my (now former) colleagues at CU Boulder. I’ll be interested to hear what choices others have made — and why.

Remember: Happy Hour takes place on Twitter from 9-10 p.m. Eastern, 6-7 p.m. Pacific. Use the hashtag #OLists to identify your tweets as part of the Happy Hour, and join us!

For more details on this Happy Hour, see this post. For general information about OLists Twitter Socials, visit the OList.com events page. And don’t forget about the #OLists Sunday Brunch!

Oh, and if you’d like to join us but you don’t yet have a twitter account, I’d recommend that you sign up for that now, as your #OLists hash tag won’t show up in Twitter’s search for an hour or three.
