See that last post? It’s restricted. If you can see it, then I’ve already granted you access to restricted posts. If you can’t see it, then all you need to do is ask for access and I’ll hook you up. It’s really that easy. Tell me who you are, include a website address if you have one – and you will be allowed in unless you are one of the very few I want to keep out.
I personally think that sometimes censoring yourself online is a pretty smart thing to do. A year ago, I didn’t feel that way. When I was job hunting last December, I realized it wouldn’t take much to find my website. Just do a Google search for “Christine” and I’m there in the number 1 spot. If an employer had issues with my political beliefs, something I did in my past, or maybe negative things I said about my last job, they just might hold that against me. I know they shouldn’t – but really, we’re all humans. Even employers. In a tight job market, when they can pick and choose who they want to hire among a lot of applicants, I personally believe it’s wise to watch what you say and do online.
Another perk of restricted access posts? Search engines can’t pick up on them, and they won’t haunt me (hopefully) in the years to come.
So there you have it – be sure to request access!
Mad props to Jennifer for fixing the code I broke! Thank you, Jenn! YOU ROCK!
