Don’t Believe Everything you Read

My day started out pretty normal. A cup of coffee, a few miles on the treadmill and then hit the shower. When I returned to my office, my mailbox was full. I knew something was up. It turns out my article 5 Signs Your Job is on the Line is being featured on the Home Page of Yahoo! 

I appreciate all the wonderful responses I received from readers regarding this article. I also appreciate the responses I received from people who thought they could have done a much better job of writing this article.

Many readers don't seem to realize that articles are written months in advance and in some cases (this case) several years in advance. As writers, we don't get to control the editorial process. If an editor thinks a tag line is jazzier than the one we suggested, he gets to have the final say.

I'm taking my own advice today. I'm not going to take the comments (both good and bad) personally as my article has done exactly what Yahoo and I want it to do. It is creating quite a buzz.

If you have some signs you would like to add to the list, please do so in the comments section.
