aside from this slight distraction have been quite busy searching for and applying to jobs. It is quite a ree-raw applying to a job out here in the sticks. The employment, as I discussed earlier this week with my step-mother, is rather focused on education and industry.

Unfortunately, living in the country is not proving to be the easiest employment strategy.

If you find yourself in the same place as me, looking for at-home freelance work. Let me tell you, friend! I have tried quite a lot!

Depending on the size of your community this is such a great way to get your name out there for writing. After the articles are published attach them to your resume for flare. I love being a freelance journalist!
