Interns are facing some problems for blogging and even attracting some negative press.  But this does not mean that interns should not blog!  Blogging fosters several important characteristics that make a successful intern, scholar, professional, and person.  

Yet, like everything else, there is a wrong way and a right way to intern blogging.  Fortunately, I have not had to learn the hard way, but from the "bad" example of others.  

The Do's and Dont's of Intern Blogging

DONT's

  • NEVER talk about confidential information from your work
  • Refrain from office gossip
  • Keep co-worker names out of the blogging conversation
  • Be careful about disclosing where you work, your department and/or who you work with
  • Have a public disclosure on your blog, something like this: "Please Note: All thoughts and ideas presented in this blog share no connection with my employer"

DO's

These are some important lessons that I have learned throughout my blogging experience.
