I sometimes get asked what I am going to do when I am replaced by a robot. On other occasions, I get emails from people hoping I get replaced by a robot.
Those in the second group typically accuse me of not knowing what it is like to not have a job.
Actually, I do know what it is like to be without a job for an extended period because I was jobless for several years between 2001 and 2004.
I started this blog hoping someone would hire me as writer. The Motley Fool had an opening for a writer and turned me down for the position.
With the exception of the bit about the Fool position that I wanted and needed, I have written about this before on several occasions, most recently on January 30, 2015, in Financial Blogger Profile of “Mish” on Equities.Com.
