Wow!  What a busy morning it has been!  Yesterday I posted (complained mostly) about not finding a job.  Today I have had 3 offers ~ but two are volunteer positions. I know that volunteering doesn't pay money, but I do know from experience that when you volunteer your time, you do receive benefit in other ways.

I have many skills that I can offer a company however, I also have many others that need polishing so that is the benefit I will receive from volunteering my time.  Also, non-profits have a very difficult time finding money to pay people. I know, I have been there. I also know that sometimes a volunteer position can lead to full time paid opportunities. So that is my update on the job front.

Right now, I am preparing for a garage sale.  Maybe I will be able to put gas in my car with the money I make!


  1. Hey Beth, what a great blog! You are such a great grandmother . . . .

    I saw a talk on Ted Talks about volunteering . . . people are happier doing things for others than they are doing things for themselves. Here's a link . . .

  2. Thanks Dan! I love writing and find blogging to be quite fun! That is a great resource you offered. I hope you will continue to check in from time to time. Feel free to let others know about it. You never know when someone might learn from or become inspired by the words of others.
