First of all, I'm sorry if it's not the good SE site for asking this but I think it's relevant.
So I'm a young post graduate and I'm going to start my PhD soon. I have that blog/site on WordPress where I like to post stuff. It's a lot of technical stuff, some about my travels and other just about my opinion/health/life experience stuff. It's very broad but I have more "technical stuff" than anything else.
I like to use this to "advertise" myself. It doesn't have a lot of views per months (and that's not the point) but the technical content is sometime very relevant to the kind of work I want to. I mostly use it as a journal to remember what I did and how I did it but I think it can be a great "vitrine". I never asked myself this question before but, since I went through hiring process recently and I gave a link on my CV to this site, I was wondering :
Is it better to have two separate sites ? One for "work related/non personal stuff" and another for the rest ? From a HR point of view, is it an good/neutral thing or am I taking a risk, knowing that the personal opinion stuff is completely irrelevant to my future work ?
It seems hard for me to know where is the limit between what is acceptable or not. As much as talking about travels seems good, talking about X event happening at X location might be a "bad" idea as I think I could get judged by the future interviewer, not being of the same opinion.
So what would be the pro and cons of having a professional website and a personal one as opposed to having a "all in one" site ?
