About 30 years ago, give or take, I made the conscious career-limiting decision to avoid becoming a manager. It’s not because I dislike management. I’ve had good, bad, and indifferent managers, and I do have some definite opinions about what constitutes a good one. I just don’t want to be one myself, mainly because I don’t think I would be very good at it.
Yesterday, it appeared that my GuestDietBlog had been hacked. The page looked like one of those “parked” pages, full of somebody else’s links.
