The Quality Here on BlogJob

I have to say, I’m super impressed with the quality of writing that’s happening here on BlogJob. When I first started writing for this site, I feel like so many writers were just putting anything into a post. Literally, I could read someone’s grocery list or random thoughts that made no sense and had no organization. But, as I scroll… Read more →

Looking Back

The last time I was writing hardcore for this site, I was at the most financially unstable point in my life. I mean, we literally didn’t have enough to make ends me, and it was all just too much of a struggle. I was always stressed, unhappy, and desperately searching for a way to make things work.

My friend, Kate, and I met about three years ago in Tennessee. My husband was stationed there, and I was attending the local college. We ended up in the same history class, and we’ve been friends ever since. Even after I moved away, we still talk constantly. She is so easy to talk to, and she is good at keeping… Read more →
