Job..

Ya know... I need a new job... not like there is not things to like about mine. The pros are the people I work with and that I am in an industry I like. The cons are the amount of money I make and the redundancy to the job.
It is funny, most people I know are feeling that way right now. I guess many of us have been at our present jobs long enough to give it a "fair shake". So I hope, us, and those of you out there, can find what you want to do soon.
As for me... I have been trying to figure out what I like that could be converted to a job. Ultimately it would be great to have flexible hours and/or the chance to work from home some of the time... though I know that may be hard to find.
One thing I really love is the internet... now if I could just take that passion and create a job out of it.. I don't think I am creative enough for internet design... but I could do some of the technical stuff if I was trained on it. I would love to make side money that would turn into an income from something - either e-commerce through/beside my blog or maybe ebay selling (no clue what I could sell) or maybe even some writing.. I do feel my writing has gotten a lot better since I went to college and took some Journalism classes and then got out in the real world and have started writing more.
Or the other thing that I am starting to get interested in is travel. Last year I got to go on my first trip by myself when I went to MD/PA. And for once I was not scared of flying or being alone... I was actually invigorated. Then today my friend was showing me pictures of her trip last week to London and for once I wanted to be there. So maybe something travel related would be fun. Definetly not a pilot or flight attendant... but maybe something where I could travel 25% of the time (of course it would have to be worth it to be away from my family).
Hmmm.... some things to think about.
Anyone have any ideas for me?

C-Ya!

If you can find a job that involves being paid to sit online all day please let me know. I've been doing that job for free for years! LOL!

I have half heartidly thought about becoming a TA lately (from one TA to another TA)... but I really have no clue what kind of money can be made and am afraid with the internet they are going the way of the dinosaur.

A while ago - I though about becoming a travel agent too - however, it is commission based work here (not sure about there) and the income is not really guaranteed....hard to go from a salaried job to a commission one. Plus - I love to travel - but that doesn't mean I will love selling other people travel packages (I am not the package deal kinda gal, either - so it would be a hard sell LOL).

I am still considering my options....not really sure what I want to do - and can't really leave my job right now - because I am going to need the income shortly (we're starting renovations to the house - and it's looking like they'll cost more than we expected)

Ok-I have a job for you. And, with the likes of me, it may take a while:)! Help my link to my SS "sisters" on my blog. Yes, you will need to hold my hand and walk me through it, step by step. Then, if we master that, you can help me set up a link for that e-mail blog update thingy!!!:)

Mel said...

Well you can change you password and let me go in or I can work you through it. I do plan to have one of my next posts being basics for my new blogger friends!!!

Can I hire you to help me fix my blog? I tried what you told me to put the blogroll out there and it didn't work and now my blog doesn't look 'right' Normally it had my profile, pic and such on the left and then my recent post right to the right, now the posts are below the other and I have a blank spot to the right ...
In mean time I will keep thinking about things for you for a new job. If you can help with my blog let me know and I'll give your my pertinents to fix it :)

Mel said...

Also, I just published my hints for bloggers post. I really hope that helps someone.
