Who’s reading your blog: Blogger Blocked at U.S. Border

It’s hard to believe it has been almost three weeks since BlawgThink and I still haven’t written anything about it!! Between the holidays blah blah blah. Most of my writing these days has been on my autism blog, but I do have a lot of ideas in the works for here.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the Top 10 Blog Usability mistakes according to Jakob Nielsen. (I’ve made at least one change to my site design based on that list, only nine more to go 😉

The number nine top mistake is “forgetting that you are writing for your future boss.” Sometimes, though, a future boss may be the least of your worries. I recently wrote about this on my aforementioned autism blog, 29 Marbles, and came across the eweek article Blogger Blocked at U.S. Border today:

Bloggers have no privacy and should expect none—a lesson painfully learned by a Canadian citizen who was recently turned away after U.S. border guards Googled him and pored over his blog to discover where he lives.

Just a quick reminder that you are writing for ANYONE that may want to find out information about you in the future.
