The Social Media Powers-That-Be from the national office called me on Thursday. They needed a blog post and they needed it – well, they had needed it yesterday. They had a very rough draft – could I use my wordsmith talents and help them out?
I could. Flattery aside, the topic was one that needed no research, one I knew well enough to write in my sleep. I stayed awake at my desk (thanks to the office coffee) and rewrote almost the whole thing. It wasn’t my best work, but it was still good. Good enough, anyway, to make the national blog look good. Ahem. I mean it was good enough to make our local branch look good to the people on the national level.
