For those that are interested in such things, I have been asked by BBC Radio Scotland to appear on one of their programmes to discuss the whole 'employee blogging' thing. Also on the programme will be an internet lawyer, a pro-blogging journalist and an anti-blogging employer. So it looks as if it might be an interesting discussion. I think my role is to show how employees who blog are not some form of secret-leaking, confidentiality breaching, libel monsters.
It's the first time I've ever been on the radio – so I'm a little nervous, I've already asked some very clever people (who think about blogging for a job) for advice, which I think I'll follow, plus I'll be putting in some hours to gather notes on current ideas in blogging, so I (hopefully) won't come across as a complete idiot.
The programme starts around 10am this coming Monday, and you can listen via the website – and if you miss it, then they archive the programmes for a week, I'm appearing on the Gary Robertson show.
The only sad thing about it is that I don't actually get to visit Scotland, instead I shall be sitting in a studio in London, which is still plenty exciting for little old me.
Advice/comments/warnings gratefully received.
Offers for me to write books, write columns, appear on the TV, open summer fêtes or appear in pantomime will be considered.
