Unemployement-The Sanity Chronicles

It's very exciting to read a blog that is so current and inspiring in these trying times in the United States today. It's almost unprecedented that in a County like ours, the unemployment rate can be so high and so much talent is just left on the side lines. In the Sanity Chronicles, you can take the journey and read some very inspiring and thought provoking entries from someone who is in the same boat as 13.2 million other Americans. The blog itself is well written and makes me wonder if the author isn't already doing so, why not look into freelance writing. Go get a copy of The Writer's Market, or these days, point your browser to their website, and start submitting some work. One blog critique observation I can make and could help in generating some income is to set up some google AdSense on your blog. Some say it takes away from the blog experience for your readers, I disagree. You'd be surprised how it could add up.

I will have to say that my favorite post is a recent one, What's YOUR worm smokin?, that speaks about passion. This is so important and people who are unemployed are in a unique situation in that they can think about that a little deeper. If you had your choice, to open a business or work for a company or start a new career, what would it be? What would you LOVE to do everyday? You are in a position now to act on this thought. Finding your passion. It's the most important thing in life.

So to sum it all up...I highly recommend the blog and thoroughly enjoyed perusing it's entries. Job well done and keep the blog rolling!

Interesting thoughts here. What all/most stats fail to report are the millions of unemployed who are not eligible for unemployment benefits. For instance, I was a Realtor - a private contractor - and not a salaried employee. After being forced out of the business when the market turned sour two years ago in order to take care of my aging mother, it was a rude awakening to me. Having gone through my savings, etc., I've turned to writing/baking as therapy and for a few pennies here and there.
But, life has taught me to always remain optimistic. Thanks for this outlet.
