In the run-up to Christmas, I got a message from a freelance writer.
He was having difficulty getting the word out about his new project.
He wanted to set up a blog to sell his work.
His site had only three images, so I thought I would give him a chance to do so.
He agreed to take a couple of hours and write an article on his new site, and that was it.
The next morning I sent him a link to the blog.
I got an email back that it was a success, and he would be the first person to see it.

What was I supposed to do?
