The trick to not getting fired because of what you write in your blog? Be so much of a nuisance in your day-to-day work life, that no one's even looking at your blog.

mental_floss Blog - 7 People Fired For Blogging

Michael Tunison, Kissing Suzy Kolber

The Washington Post is one of those newspapers that prides itself on being a bastion of old-school journalism. And they do not take kindly to being disrespected. Just ask former employee Michael Tunison. He was fired from his position as an editorial aide this past April after his superiors discovered that he was blogging under the name Christmas Ape (an obscure Simpsons reference) at Kissing Suzy Kolber.
