Not so happy April folks. April means the start of a new quarter and with a new quarter, we have new budget cuts. Yes, budget cuts! Guess what?Tales Of A Fourth Generation Textile Executive is on the chopping block to be some of the carnage from the cutbacks that need to be made during the market contraction. THE PARTY IS OVER FOLKS! An analysis was done by the book keeper and it was determined that the cost of the blog on an annual basis was $253,004.11. It sounds high, but you think it is easy to write nearly 52 blogs in a year, with photos, editing, etc. I don’t work for free! Also, you can’t forget all the lost sales from the time it is taking me away from selling fabric and travelling. The point is to sell fabric, RIGHT? Not write blogs!
The irony is that I don’t get paid for the blogs and I totally should. When I broached the subject recently about not getting paid for the blog writing, that too contributed to the decision by my dad and brother to cut it. Anyway, the truth is that they think my blog sucks and is a total waste of my time. I kind of enjoyed it if anyone cares. Do we get more sales because of my blah, blah, blah, blog they ask? I have no idea, but I can think of a couple of people that will be happy to see me go. Regardless, the point of this blog is that I am done blogging. I am out of here. What do you think about that? Post your comments and I will make sure that my dad and brother see them.
