About.com sites and how I'm doing


From an email to a friend...



I've spent most of the time I've been awake today looking at (and being thoroughly confused by) my contract with About. I don't speak legal-ese, and they do it very well. All this talk about pay cuts has me thinking about little things About does that seem unethical to me. Most people I talk to say something like, "That's business." Well, you know me well enough to know that's not good enough. Maybe I'm idealistic in wanting to work honestly and in thinking I can get paid while doing it. But I do. And I'm sitting here asking myself how much lack of ethics I'm really willing to tolerate. The general public thinks About is a reputable company, and in lots of respects they are--at least they're as reputable as those of us doing the sites make them. But there are a few things on the inside that bother me, and the more I learn the less willing to shove them under the rug I become.


Anyway, I'm not feeling too organized this afternoon, but I'm giving it a try and hopefully will have something to show for it by the end of the day. I have group at 6:00, and that will be a break. Dad suggested we have Wendy's for supper after I get out, and that's a good thing. There's no baby day tomorrow, so I don't have to wrestle with myself about whether it's a good idea to go or not. I'm going back on Wednesday, and I think I'll be up to Tuesday mornings by next week. I'm kind of wishing tomorrow was a normal day--I'm feeling the need for some good baby time.
