I'm Not Your Writer...

I'd never thought I would say those words to anyone, but I did today.
I had a potential client call me and he wanted me to ghost a blog for him. The topic was on HR. He wanted certain things discussed on this blog and was pretty open to most any subject, but it couldn't be negative toward employees or HR people's view of employees. Well, I don't know about any other HR person, but that is what is universal about being in this field. The fact of the matter is, some employees abuse policies (not all, but some) and that is the way it is.

When I asked him for an example of what he wanted....he gave me a ridiculous example as if I were stupid but then when I read his comments from people on his blogs....they had the same comments as I did.....He wanted me to start right away.....

After he asked me repeatedly to do the articles, All I could say was, "I'm not your writer."

To the Blogger Guy:
#1 - Don't patronize me, just tell me what you want or need.

#2 - If you can't do that, I'm not your writer.

You tell him! I don't know what HR is, but I'm glad to see someone not sacrificing their morals for the sake of their job or their client. More people should stand up for what they believe in like that.
