Oh, Hello, Therapist

I just need a quick reality check: it would be totally unprofessional for my therapist to leave a comment on my unrelated-to-therapy blog, right?

I'm thinking about looking for a talk therapist again but I still have lingering unpleasant feelings about my last one. I left because I didn't feel like she was doing me much good; I felt like she thought I did interesting things and wanted to hear about them, but didn't actually give me much feedback in areas I needed it.
But specifically: I do music stuff and have a blog where I talk about it and she left a comment there. It was pretty innocuous and not stalker-y or anything, but I still felt like there was a crossing of borders or collision of worlds there that I did not want to deal with.
So: Is this a thing that I need to be specific with a potential new therapist about -- that I don't want them leaving comments for me on social media? Or was my previous therapist way over the line, and this isn't something I should generally worry about?
