To find other companies that are looking for blogger services, make sure you use keywords: Social Media Outreach when using   What do you have to lose?  Instead, put your skills and years of dedicated work from your blog to use, to help pay those holiday bills, or add extra money to your family’s income for the coming year.  With the unsteady economy and job market., more and more companies are turning to social media to spread the word about their services and products, and this is where your experience as a blogger pays off.  Companies are turning to you, for your social media connections and knowledge base.  So, why not capitalize on it?  

What are you waiting for?  Head on over to to see what jobs are available both remotely (at-home work) and on-site at a city/town near you.

And, if healthcare is your calling, why not consider a job as a traveling nurse.  This is great for those moms who children are now in high school or college, and you are looking to get back into the workforce.  Not only will you get to travel and make your own schedule, but you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping people out.  I loved working in the healthcare field for the 10+ years I was a health educator, prior to my daughter's being born. Now, I am enjoying being a stay-at-home mom.  But, once they get older, I can't wait to get back into the healthcare field.
