Please Take a Quick Survey Reviewing My Blog: A Jab at Work. Thanks everyone!

Hi everyone. If you frequent the Google Cafe, you may have seen my post a few weeks ago seeking input about this blog:A Jab at Work. After a lot of hand-wringing, soul-searching, and ego-nurturing I've made some adjustments. If you follow this blog closely, you'll notice that there was a rough ride of a weekend, when I sampled new templates/colors, and added and deleted content with what may have seemed like reckless abandon. (Perhaps you don't follow that closely & noticed nothing : )

Either way, it will be clear to many of you that the template and the colors ultimately remained pretty close to what they had been. However, make no mistake, revolutionary changes have occurred, and despite the fact that I am still struggling with some Google Chrome video and template limitations/technical difficulties, I am eager to get some feedback on the site as it exists today.

So, if you have a few minutes, please read over a few of the posts and leave a comment, or click a reaction, so that I can gauge your impressions of the articles/content. Then, if you have an additional moment, please scroll down to the bottom of the site and take a quick opinion survey about the blog as a whole.

Thanks everyone. Your input is much appreciated.

I think I like your blog's new interface. I also appreciated your insightful and thought-provoking comments on my blog. I hope that you can read the latest post and tell me what you think:

I also have a job board that you might want to add to your site called AOL Find a Job. It's basically just CareerBuilder with a new coat of paint, but this might be something that your readers who are on AOL might like to see, since this site would be convenient for them...

A Jab At Work Poetry (Poetry about Work)

“Work” by AJA-B, 08/30/09

The life I live is full of Joy,
But fool of sadness have I been,
If rumblings uttered prove us coy,
Then, truth be told both where, and when,
Was once a pair that teetered then,
O’er brinks or hills,
That they could scarce,
Find liquid, bars of salt, but bills,
And toil, though notice paid none dare’st,
To sweat, and pack, and tape, and wrap,
To call, and quest, rebuffed for cost,
To drive five states, and back, for gas
Traverse, from here to there to drink,
While aching back, and sweat-soaked shirt,
Proved naught the laborers’ worth, but stink,
And why should hecklers, wreckers blurt,
And hurl insults until they hurt,
While hypocrites sit conditioned in,
Till out a pair sent all they’d earned,
To others seeking extra, win,
‘gainst those that taught themselves, and learned,
Volumes, nearly choked and burned,
As plumes of hate, and stacks of smoke,
Sparked flames, which brinksmanship, did stoke,
Hellacious fires that GOD awoke,
& Smote the devils’ flames whose’ fire,
Could not the heights of clouds aspire,
& Up the pair in now a shell,
found seeds to plant that vines did swell,
Fat, filling, fruit and tasty cheer,
Revealing teeth, “from ear to ear,”
Now brimming, happily forgiving, hope,
Refilling cranial stores to find,
Surviving, counts for little more than sustaining life, and wasting time.

Digressing now though more is there,
I advise you work, but ne’er care,
Hard work, and success are not the same,
But without the first you’ll reap the blame,
For being weak, and seeming lame,
To end I wish you all the best,
Catharsis exhausts, I needs must rest,
Good luck, “You’re hired” I hope you’ll find,
To ease your cares, and soothe your mind.
