My Debut

The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent IBM's positions, strategies, or opinions.

For nearly a decade, I've been posting on an internal online community for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender IBMers and our colleagues. I've been blogging since before blogging was born -- exclusively internally only...until today.

The only boyfriend I ever had, from ages 17-20, sent e-mail to me earlier today, asking if I blog. I went to the blogging advice section of IBM's intranet to learn how strict or not we are about blogs that contain IBM references and felt encouraged to be bold and post externally.

This is my posting premiere.

If you have a blog, what gave you the impetus to create it? If you haven't yet created one, what would it take to motivate you to do so?
