the excerpt she used was credited to me. however, she lead with,"Take, for example, the perspectives on unemployment emerging from the blogosphere. In this entry, a jobless woman from Kansas City hits bottom."
okay, i didn't hit bottom. i was depressed, yes. i was upset, true. but each day was different. some had brighter spots than others. and i think most of my loyal readers realize something: i am sarcastic. and while this post was honest, it was also a bit sarcastic. like the whole wanting to start drinking at noon thing, which she featured prominately.
i appreciate the credit, and the heads-up. but i would have rather been told before it published. and really, i mean, as a journalist (which i am), i would at least have attempted to contact the source prior to publishing. as a courtesy if nothing else. you know, what goes around comes around. you get what you give. that type of thing.
here's what she wrote.
what do you think?
also, she's happy to report i've found a job. don't forget, for all of you out there itching to hire me, i'm still mostly available. this job is temporary. i need something permanent.
