Is blogging about work OK?

Hi There

Here's a question to all the avid bloggers on this list.

How do you draw the line between what work related stuff you can blog
about? Since most of us do interaction design at work, and talk about the
same one way or the other in our blogs, where do you draw the line?

Is it OK to share exciting details of how they brainstormed about a
particular problem, or a simple usability tweak in that took a solution from
usable to delightful?
