Hey ladies I have a little dilemma. So I write for a sports blog part time and I'm sitting on big news about a well known baller who just suffered a season ending injury and only a few people know not even his teammates know and I'm sure in 24 hours it will be out. Problem for me, I found out because we're dating (yes its that loser from my crazy story for those who remember, I stayed) anyways, he literally just called me from the doctors to tell me. As you know in news you always want to be the first to break it. I don't want to come of as an opportunist but this is business and it will be good for our site. I must note, as a sports writer, my focus is mainly in a different league than his so there is usually no conflict of interest but this is a headline. Should I take a seat on this one?

Break the story.

Girl, you better write that story... Like you said, this is business!

Is there loyalty in the blog writing business??? I say write. If he is not ya fam you owe him nothing.

the worlds going to find out anyway..

post the link when you finish Thanks in advance lol

Is it Percy Harvin...with his fine self....hehehe

Its going to come out anyway....I would ask him if its ok first. Since you're dating and its going to come out anyway he may give you the scoop...or not...its worth a try.

Can you write under an alias? Can you put it out as a blind item and let people guess who it might be? Can you sell the story perhaps? It really depends on where you are in your career and will this story help define it or will as time goes on the story will blend in with the rest of your work? Do you have a future with the guy? How will this define your relationship with him?

soooo...... who is it?

write the story. why cant u just ask dude if hes cool with it as well??

If you value your relationship write it only after you ask him otherwise go ahead and loose the friendship.
