Will my blog ruin my chances of getting a job?

    I started my blog for the sake of my sanity, as I blogged about bad customer service and impolite social behavior that was literally driving me mad !!!

    I feel rather good now that I've let it all out, but worry that if a prospective employer Googles me and finds the blog, it might stand against me.

    I don't want to take down my blog because it makes me so happy. Does anyone have any advice for me?

      Write under a fake name and don't tell your boss or prospective boss what it is.

    If you're blogging at work it might be an issue as well.

    Use a pen name, that's just common sense.

    A pen name is a must!  Remember you cannot change your profile name here on Hub Pages - it stays with you - I had the trauma of someone mad at me and posting my name with undesirable sights.

    The Internet is similar to a very urban city - you must be savvy.

    Take cover and take care.
