dan-pud693284dTell them No.
It's a hard thing to say but it needs to be a No.
Offer to setup a company one instead where they can follow your personal one. Perhaps even contribute to it.
Definitely a No.
vane7789284dSay no, there is no nicer answer.
“No I don’t feel it’s a good idea.”
Maybe they want to use your house to hire more people and your car to go to business trip, maybe later they will just stop paying you so they can hire someone else.
powerfulparadox1306284dIf they won't understand the distinction between a personal blog and a corporate one, then they likely won't make the distinction elsewhere, especially if you don't remind them of the significance of such distinctions.
As @dan-pud said, you can offer to help set up a corporate one instead, but I'd clarify what they want, first. If they genuinely want another platform to reach people from, more power to them. If they're being opportunistic and trying to subvert your blog for a quick exploitation of your existing audience, they are either being scummy or stupid and you shouldn't go anywhere near helping them.
colaguy577284dThanks for the feedback. I was in contact with them today and here is what they said. We would like to share your stuff with our colleagues.
I thought they wanted me to add their logo and such on my blog.
I guess if so, then this is fine.
