I'll give you an example. I write for a variety of blogs. One in particular works like this: I queue up a post for publication, then an editor gives it a once-over and releases it into the blogosphere.
Just one problem: one of the editors makes my copy worse. He/she introduces grammatical errors that weren't there before, torpedoes perfectly good sentence structure, and frequently removes traces of my "voice" from the post. Take it from a seasoned blogger: "voice" is essential. Without it, blogs are bland.
This is slowly driving me up the wall. My name is attached to these posts, and I think the modified content reflects poorly on me.
I'm not here to recommend solutions, but rather to ask advice. (Hey, I'm a technology expert, not a management expert.) As I see it, I have three options:
- Talk to the editor directly and express my concerns.
- Talk to the editor's boss and express my concerns.
- Live with it.
