Ok – those of you still here…
I was out at our local shopping centre today escaping the heat (Summer has come early here – it was 37 degrees Celsius) and was in a bookstore when a book titled 100 Bullshit Jobs…And How to Get Them (aff).
The book caught my attention on the shelf – mainly because of the title.
However the moment I saw it I just knew what I’d find if I turned to the ‘B’ section of occupations.
Yep – number 13 (lucky for some) on the list (between ‘best-sellingn author’ and ‘book editor’) is ‘Blogger’.
I’m not sure whether to be proud or offended :-)
The chapter on Blogging as a BS job didn’t really have much of value to say – the book was in the humor section – and referred to Nick Denton and encouraged readers to start a blog and write about their lives.
Of course – other bullshit jobs include ‘advertising executive’, ‘Being Donald Trump, ‘Closet Organizer’, Economist’, ‘Lawyer’, ‘Poet’ and ‘writer of this book’ so we can’t take it too seriously… or can we? :-)
