I read and respond regularly to Help A Reporter and Reporter Connection. This request annoyed me for it’s arrogance:

Seeking career authors and experts with national appeal to comment for the following feature article. Please include responses to the questions with preferred attribution.

WORK FROM HOME: There are a lot of perks to working from home – no commuting, conference calls in your pajamas, setting your own schedule – but it’s easy to let these perks become commonplace. I’m seeking tips from the experts on how to maintain a ‘normal’ life when you call the shots.

I thought this was rather obnoxious. Who better to provide advice than a person that actually lives that life-style? You don’t need an “expert” — you need recommendations from the trenches.

Would you agree? Where do you get your best advice from?
