Suggestions for How to Find Freelance Work – UBC Day 5 #blogboost

On Finding Freelance Work *Job Board List Included* As I’ve mentioned, I am participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month, and the writing prompt for today is to share tips on a topic we’re knowledgeable about… So I thought I’d borrow from a previous post on my other blog and share my process of looking for freelance work. I’ve noticed in many of my Facebook blogging groups that many of you bloggers also work from home, as I…

What Would YOU Like to Learn About Here?

What Would YOU Like to Learn About Here?

I admit it: I’m a lifelong learner and an advocate of online learning, in particular. I don’t think anyone is ever too old to learn new things.  I mean, really, I earned my M.Ed. degree at the age of 50 – with a 4.0 GPA! I’m now 55 and in the dissertation phase of earning my Ed.D. degree. So if *I* can do it, I know younger people can certainly learn new things and pursue dreams–and older people, too, because…

The Power of Words

The Power of Words

No doubt you have heard the expression: “Sticks and stones may break my bones,  but words will never hurt me.” In reality, however, words can and do hurt – tremendously. Many times the hurt caused by unkind words can in fact do more damage than a broken bone or other type of physical injury (excluding crippling or life-threatening conditions). Damage done by unkind words often causes emotional pain with long-term effects, to the point that an individual may require extensive…

Letting Go of the Past

Letting Go of the Past

Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks we face is letting go of the past, particularly if we have been hurt, or if wonderful people, relationships, circumstances, or events from the past are no longer part of our present lives. As I mentioned in my opening post and on my “About” page,  this is an area I have struggled with over the past several years since losing my Dad. Around that same time, my marriage also fell apart with my…
