Google Employee Adds Personal Post to Official Blog


I’ve lost track of the number of times I have posted to the wrong blog (my personal blog, instead of this one). It usually happens when using the “Blogger” button in the Google Toolbar – it defaults to the most recently updated blog, not the one you select as “default”.

Anyway, I’m glad to hear that even Google employees can make this mistake

A Google Inc. employee mistakenly posted information to an official Google blog that she had intended to publish in her personal blog…two postings about skull-shaped candies appeared on Blogger Buzz, the official blog of this Google blog publishing service.

The postings were quickly removed from Google, but it shows that blogger is perhaps not robust enough to manager large-scale corporate blogs.
