Two Excellent Workplace Blogging Resources

There's not a lot of high quality resources available for those considering workplace blogging. Here are two that I found useful.

The Electronic Freedom Foundation- Legal Guide For Bloggers
Everything the EFF does is good and deserves to be read. This guide covers legal liability issues for bloggers and should be your first read before thinking about blogging.

IBM - IBM Social Computing Guidelines
The content of this guide came from a wiki IBM created for it's employees who were interested in blogging. It's a series of best practices and guidelines. For the most part the IBM guidelines are common sense but I still think the document does a great job compiling and presenting it's ideas.

Nobody wants to get in trouble at the office and if you keep follow the advise in the above resources you will be fine and your blog will be better as well.
