In Amy Poehler’s book “Yes Please”, she has the idea that there’s a time and a place for everything: “No one says good things about people in their diaries. You tell people the good things. Diaries are for the bad things!”
Sometimes I feel like journal writing is underappreciated. We post so much about what’s going on in our lives to our hundreds of colleagues, because we want them to know what’s happening. Why wouldn’t we? A lot can change over time, and talking about our accomplishments and, within reason, failures can reach tons of people at once and avoid the awkward questions at reunions of all sorts.
That being said, with the majority of employers checking, it’s probably best to post wisely.
