According to b5, I'm an "aggregator"

Harrumph. Years of blogging for b5media and now I'm an aggregator?


Blisstree is a re-launch of an existing b5 property that was essentially an aggregator.

The definition of "aggregator" is someone who gathers things. Excuse me, my CV does NOT say I'm an aggregator. I'm a writer - and a good one. I enjoyed working for b5media and I'm proud of the work I did. I'm trying to be a good sport about the whole thing. After all, business is business and part of business is making changes, which may include laying off staff that they feel they no longer need. But they don't need to belittle the work that was done by the many bloggers who worked for them. They don't need to insult us, do they?

No, they don't. Sorry to hear this and, for what it's worth, I never thought of you as an aggregator!

No, they don't need to insult! That is completely unprofessional, and also untrue. The writers wrote great articles, which is why they still have them on their site today.

Wow, you are an aggregator?
Never thought I'd see you called that. How insulting. I too am sorry to hear this, it's completely untrue.

thanks for the support. :-)

I don't know how you're supposed to feel as an aggregator, but I know I don't feel it.
