Blogger grounded by her airline

A US airline attendant is fighting for her job after she was suspended over postings on her blog, or online diary.

Queen of the Sky, otherwise known as Ellen Simonetti, evolved into an anonymous semi-fictional account of life in the sky.

But after she posted pictures of herself in uniform, Delta Airlines suspended her indefinitely without pay. Ms Simonetti was told her suspension was a result of “inappropriate” images. Delta Airlines declined to comment.

Fascinating no?

I personally think bloggers should refrain from writing anything relating to their jobs. Besides the fact that such behaviour is not professional, it can really get you into trouble. And seriously, why would you blog about your work in the first place? Are not blogs supposed to be some sort of an escape from our daily routine.

  1. Heh heh. Well sometimes certain circumstances make the “do not blog about us” situation more clear than others. Other times some might feel “free” and just blog away, unaware of the tracks they leave behind.
    In this particular instance I think her non-work behavior was concerning them so they were watching for a chance to get her doing something “at” work that they could fire her for and they found that soon enough.
    I found that her site was either overloaded or down. But our dear friends at Google did manage to capture a nice cached shot to give us some idea what she was up to 🙂
