Now thats what I call a good post, it makes good reading.

Thanks for sharing

Great post, Valeria. I just Dugg it and am linking to it from my blog. Last weekend I finally got around to writing a bunch of LinkedIn recommendations -- wish I had read your advice first!


Yes, I have seen the NYT magazine story of Emily. That is a good instinct about recommendations - and about life. There's on old saying that concludes it is better to say nothing, than to say something negative. Often we do not have all the information about a person's circumstances and context. It is better to be kind than to want to be right at all costs - and often the cost is quite high.
