I’m off to celebrate in my own quiet way - enjoying the sunshine with a glass of wine or two this afternoon.
Exactly a year ago on the 23rd May 2009 Eva James/Bullied by the Boss was born. The design, the tone; everything popped into my head. I knew exactly what I wanted. I just had no idea how to pull it off. I could type, but I had no IT skills at all. It took a while to set it all up. I certainly couldn’t have done it without the most helpful and generous IT experts (now firm friends) and repeated loans of “Blogging for Dummies” from the library.
Like a year ago, my plan from this point on couldn’t be clearer. I know exactly what I want, but again, I have no idea how I’m going to pull it off. I only know that this time I need the help of solicitors, witnesses and all the documentary evidence I’ve collected. I’ll still need your help, you know. I need your company on a new journey - all the way to the Employment Tribunal.
So it’s about time for a birthday wish...and maybe a drink to courage.
Let’s hope it comes true.
- Bullied By The Boss
- Welcome to my blog. My pen name is Eva James. I'm an aspiring writer paying the bills working as a legal secretary. Relentlessly bullied by my former boss, I looked for another job but the recession hit. Feeling trapped, I recorded everything in this blog, which serves as a revealing insight into workplace bullying. WEEK 1 starts the story and, as the weeks progress, you'll note what starts as banter soon spirals out of control. Sadly, it's all true. Whilst along the way I've found alternative employment, my passion for blogging about workplace bullying remains. Trevor Griffiths, legendary theatre, TV and film writer said at the outset, "I like the writing a lot: smart, cool, placed. If you were prepared/able to take your prick of a boss on, you'd marmelise him."
