    Just wondering, especially from some of the more seasoned writers on here, whether or not you keep up with a personal blog. Not a "here are my feelings" or blog for work, but just regularly post to one you've created on your own.

    I remember J-School teachers saying to make sure you have one, but then pros would sometime advise the opposite in case a potential employer didn't like something you said.

    Also wondering because I wouldn't mind just looking at a few every now and then.

    Nope. Locked down my personal Twitter and Facebook accounts because higher-ups snoop at my company.

    I've had one for some time - writing mostly about hockey - but there are times where I just don't want to deal with it.

    It's been good because it forced me to learn HTML and the tech side, but bad because I don't keep up with it like I should.

    The (linked below) Sports Writing and Editing blog has been quiet for some time.

    Between freelancing and other things, I just don't have the time to give it the attention it deserves. It occurs to me I could just put a random thought there every day, but I just don't think about it.

    I have a Nick Punto blog, but I haven't updated it much (if at all) in the past six months. Once he signs somewhere and begins his Tour of Reckoning, I will fire it back up.

    rumor is the Nats want him. Seriously, So I'll blog about that, too, but likely not in the way you would.

    Never Twittered, never Facebooked, never have, and never will.

    Although I may Twitter soon. Seems harmless enough as long as you remember to whom you're tweeting.

    I blog, though it's not connected to my work and probably not anything I'd want to show a prospective employer. There's more link sharing and opinion spouting than actual journalism.

    I'm warming to the idea of Twitter -- it's just a question of Internet access being reliable enough to check it frequently.
