Although parts of this blog were mildly humorous, I found it a little mean-spirited in places. Even the title is an insult disguised as a joke.
Ironically, Steve, you just proved that 'Even Bloggers Are Human.'
I was in sales for years, and it's not an easy living unless you like rejection, insults and lies. But in the end, Sales is what forced me to begin Personal Development. PD gave me the tools to better cope with the daily abuse and disappointments.
There's an old adage in sales - "Nothing happens until somebody sells something."
My country, the USA, was founded on capitalism, and I'm proud of being part of that. Salesmen provide jobs for accountants, managers, shippers, designers, janitors, etc. by pushing commerce forward.
And whether you accept it or not, whatever you do, you're in sales.
If Steve didn't offer a product (his blog), he wouldn't be able to place Google ads and ask for donations, and we wouldn't be here discussing this. So Steve is actually in sales.
Granted, his approach is subtler than timeshare salesmen. But Google Ads and Donation requests may be equally offensive to some people.
I will view this blog entry as a John Kerry-style "joke that was botched." And poorly conceived.
