CNET has done a good job thinking about various problems blogging can cause to those who do so ‘on the job’.

Many of those questions have been already dealt with by other articles and blogs but it is good to see CNET to note that not all is legal minefield:

Has blogging helped anyone land a job?
Yes. Robert Scoble said blogging helped him land a gig at Microsoft a couple of years ago. A Microsoft executive became a fan of Scoble’s tech-focused blog and eventually hired him from NEC. Scoble said the blog’s honest observations, including some criticisms of Microsoft, helped win over his future boss.

Are there some examples of high-profile workplace bloggers?
Yes, some companies have embraced blogs as a powerful communication tool, and some top executives now publish blogs. Examples include: Jonathan Schwartz, president of Sun Microsystems; Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks owner; Bob Lutz of General Motors; and Microsoft’s Scoble.

Indeed.
