Now, I’m supposed to be on a break but I have to share this with you because it’s just too funny.
During my check-in with my supervisor, she asked me what she could do to help me further my career goals. We are on very friendly terms and have a good rapport, so it’s a very informal sort of discussion. Naturally I can’t come up with an answer because I have no goals. She asked me if there’s any hobby or activity I really enjoy and I blurted out that I like to write short stories. (About her friend, aka my boss, but I kept that part silent.)
So today my boss calls me down to her office and tells me that my supervisor told her I like to write.
“Do you know what blogging is?” she asked.
“Do you follow any bloggers?”
Yeah, a couple.
“If you like to write, you should really make a living writing blogs for other people’s websites!”
Oh, that’s a cool idea.
“My family bought me a website and I really want to do it but I can’t write. Would you want to write blog posts for me?”
Thank goodness I was wearing a mask because I was trying so hard not to laugh.
I asked if I could see what type of website they bought her, and when I saw the little “W” symbol I almost died trying not to laugh.
Oh, WordPress, I said. I hear that’s popular.
All I could imagine is my botching something and inadvertently revealing my own blog.
I said I’d think about it. She did say she’d pay me once she was sure that was allowed. Although I doubt I could pull it off.
Had to share for those of you who know the saga.
What a tragic irony. She believes she is new to the blogging world but has no idea she’s already an international icon.
Anyways, I have a feeling my break is going to last about four days because I keep checking the Reader anyway.
