Jeneane Sessum has a very impressive article on CEOs weblogging: pros and cons. Though not a CEO, I heard the following:
Because blogging is a continuously evolving medium, it is unpredictable. The risks of blogging—of being harassed in comments, embarrassed by errors and miscommunication, even being fired—have been well demonstrated in real-life scenarios for a few years now.
Then there’s the other risks, left to the imagination of the reader.
Congrats, Jeneane. I’d say that if folks are looking for women to speak at social software and related conferences, you would be an exceptionally good choice.
