When I was negotiating the sale of my sports card collection, Michael Osacky had indicated as a possible enticement that he would write about my collection for Parade Magazine. My story would be up in lights! Or newspaper! Anyways, he indicated he had some sort of role as a columnist for the magazine.
After I published my blog post, I sent him the link. He got back to me a little later and thanked me.
Yesterday he sent me a link to his own article. From what I can tell, this was his first article for Parade.
I thanked him for the article, but then after a while I started thinking about it.
He didn’t link to my original blog post at all. I couldn’t remember what stories I told him, and what stories he might have gotten from the blog post. I thought that the post itself was a nice remembrance of my dad, seen through the prism of my card collection.
Should he have linked to my post? Was it relevant? Was what he posted incomplete? It was about things, but not memories, feelings, or people. I’m not really sure what it’s about.
