It's so hard to find good help these days...

Especially when they work for free. The saying is true. "You get what you pay for". I pay nothing, I get nothing, well, not *nothing* but close....

Here I am 7 weeks (give or take a day) into The Comic Book Novice Blog, and I am waiting for Hassan's Blogs. If I was paying him, I could fire him, but I'm not. I need him and since he "works" for free I can't do much except constantly ask him.."where are the blogs, where are the blogs..."

"What's the big deal?" you might ask. Well, here's the thing.....When I came up with The Comic Book Novice, I had hand picked the people who were going to be involved with it. They were picked because each one had a different "part" to play. Hassan's part is to talk, complain really about things. He's the "I hate everything guy". Who better than that to write a blog?

So maybe when M.F.C. Studios is making a big splash on the comic book map, I might be able to hire (or just pay Hassan) a blogger. But for now Monday, Wednesday, and Friday's will be blog less.



10/21/08 update: Seems that this was a major problem with my company (as well as a recurring theme). I'm sure that if people had nothing else to do but give me 110% they would (well, I'd like to think that). But sadly it is not the case. Maybe I should have done a better job of motivating them, or cut corners in some places to "pay for play". I have always said that I couldn't do it all myself and I am certain that the results would have been worse....

I'm sure you may already konw that but sometimes others aren't as commited as yourself. It sucks but it's so true.

How very true....but every once in a while one does find that right combination of dedication and ability. When that happens that's golden...
