Well I got a rather unfortunate email today. I’ve basically been let go for the website project I was working on. The truth of the matter is there were things that myself and the company that hired me didn’t do very well. I kind of feel a little frustrated as I thought I made myself very clear how busy my schedule was before they agreed to hire me. Apparently I didn’t do a good enough job. It would also seem as though they really didn’t read the contract before they agreed to it. It clearly states what I was expecting. I guess I’m fine with not having to worry about it any more however, I just feel as though they could have done a better job in their communication too. I asked for things and hardly got a response. It was obvious that I should have explained the development process so they understood clearly how important it was for me to get the things I asked for. They seemed to think a website can be designed out of nothing. I will accept equal part in the blame for what happened. Things came up, and I made some choices that prevented my from completing things in the time frame they wanted. It still bothers me that they feel I basically lied to them. I guess perhaps I’m dealing with people that don’t feel there is anything more important in life then working. My hope is that there won’t be any consequences that end up in some kind of court battle or something. I suppose the word will get around that I shouldn’t be hired for this kind of work. Although at this point in time I’m not looking to take anything like this on for a long time. Side jobs are nice for the extra money but not at the expense of taking over your life and having no time for people.
Well, not much else to talk about here. One pretty great thing that happened today was I got our first blogger going on the new, still in beta testing, CLB Blogs. I got Jeff Olsen who is pastor that is working to start a church down in Florida, Grace Community.
