I am Job
Okay, so apologies guys, I've not been around so much this week. I decided to throw myself a bit more wholeheartedly into the job hunt. Not that I've been complacent since I got here, it's just, well, those who are in a similar boat will understand me here, applying for jobs can be, in itself a full time job. You have to tailor your C.V. to the job in hand, prepare a cover letter based on what the job spec is looking for and then constantly checkin with all the different agencies you are registered with. It's exhausting.
Then Blogging, which I love be the way, but there is a whole process to it too, you can find that whilst you may have only written a very short post, it's figuring out the exact words that you want to say that can make it an altogether more time consuming affair. Then there's the rewrites, grammar and spellcheck (and I still sometimes miss some), then promotion on social media, interacting on the Blogsphere. I do it all and yet all I have managed to make money-wise is 3 francs, which reminds me where is my cheque Google?
Then of course I am my own worst enemy. I might get distracted and start updating the album covers on my iTunes (who else hates see that grey blank music note? Grr! This is probably down to my Obsessive Complusive Disorder and need for everything to be in order) or get distracted by Internet and it's Pelvic Trusting Cats.
Don't get me wrong though, I absolutely adore Blogging, I don't think I have felt as happy as I do now and I think it's due to the fact that I am doing something I love. All this said, I really would like to have my own money now, Husband and I are fine financially but I am ready to give up my kept-man/Hausfrau ways. So I think I am just going to have to have a few more days like the one before where I put my absolute all into finding that dream job. Unless suddenly I start making my fortune Blogging, tips welcome guys (lol, I know, I know, it's all about the long game with this one).
All the usual to follow anyways in the coming week.
