    You hit the nail on the head by saying the idea of having “blogger unions” is complete bullshit.

    But, keep in mind that those who are suggesting such madness are also those who like to bitch and moan about a LOT of things, not just things related to paid work.

    I for one can’t imagine not feeling like I’m being treated fair when I sit in my undies at home blogging for a living. I don’t care what the pay is… I’m at home and I’m doing what I want to do!

    Just absurd…

    Being the person I am I decided not to listen to this podcast (have you improved the music on this show btw?) but thanks for thinking that the fact that I am blogging again deserves any attention.

    I wanted to spend the first week or two just posting stuff to get my rhythm and voice back before I informed some friends. Of course that’s not the way the universe works.

    Anyway, no matter what was said in the Podcast I hope folks realize that I try to bleed on the screen. That honesty and authenticity are the 21st Century’s keys to the kingdom. Doing that is highly stressful sometimes, but that’s the way Rock Stars live!

    Char – welcome back!

    Mostly I said it will be interesting to see what you have to say :)

    And no, the music is the same… I like said music… besides, the podcast is about what I’m saying.. nothing else

    I might have recorded that podcast in my PJs… after all, the studio is in my basement ;)
