Well, here's the scoop. My boss wanted to meet with me yesterday afternoon to discuss how another meeting went this morning. (Yes, that's right, we meet to discuss meetings. LOL!) At the end of the meeting, he mentions this blog. Apparently, someone at work was bored enough to not only find my blog, but find this post in the archives. Then, they were bored enough to not only send the link to people in the office, but print it out and distribute it around. Yeah, if only I had that much time on my hands.
Part of me could care less. I know this is the internet. I wouldn't post anything that I thought could get me into trouble at work. I'm not THAT dumb. I don't think there was anything that terrible in that post. Surely, I am not the only 35 year old who has experienced discontent at work and has no clue what she wants to do when she "grows up"! However, my boss felt otherwise. First, why would I want to blog in the 1st place? Second, maybe someone at work would read that and think that I wasn't really happy here. He felt that I might have to do damage control over that post. All of the partners where I work are men, and trust me when I say that when it comes to gossiping, they are as bad if not worse than a bunch of high school girls. Some of them are extremely judgemental. I am sure I will get a lot of strange looks from many of them. I'm sure that a couple of them will mention this discovery to me (can we say - beating a dead horse?).
The other part of me is just annoyed that someone at work is childish enough to feel that my blog needed to be distributed in this manner. I *think* I have an idea of who this person is, and if my guess is correct, I am not surprised in the least. I haven't decided how I'm going to handle this. For now, I'll leave my blog as private. I e-mailed everyone I have saved as a contact in my e-mail account...which isn't everyone. I am horrible about updating my contact list! So, if I am forgetting anyone, I hope they e-mail me!
