It has been a while since I have been here. I got laid off back in 2009 and had some health issues. We moved form Florida back to the Jersey Shore and right into the path of Super Storm Sandy. We are OK. When I lost my last job I was 59 and getting back into the business was a long shot at best. I picked up a couple writing gigs on the internet and built it into a new career. Today I have several private clients and have worked for SEO companies, Attorneys, Marketing firms and many more.
The internet needs content writers and there is plenty of work for anyone who has English as a first language and decent grammar and punctuation.
2nBand, my old friend from way back, you might consider it. You can work from home and start out making 10.00 to 20.00 per 400.-600 word post. I would be glad to show you how to get started. or anyone else. I took my SS early and do this and I bring home as much as I did when I was working.
The collection agencies for my old Payday loans still try to harass me seven years later. Way past the Florida statute but they keep trying. My favorite is when they are going to serve me at my job. I asked one of them where my job was and he told me it was classified information. Can you imagine. I just laughed and hung up.
So how has everyone been?

Nice to see you again Froggy :)

Hello Frogpatch, my old friend!! It is great seeing you again. I have not been back on here for very long either. Like you, I lost my job 5 years ago and have too had some health issues. I may consider what you said about the job thing. My husband and I decided that I am going to wait until after the first of the year to do anything, considering my health lately. So glad to see that you are doing well!!! Look forward to hearing more from you!

Hey 2nband. Like old times. I can't believe how quiet the forums are. I have been here for about an hour today and no one posted anything, I guess because it is the weekend and a Holiday is coming. We are looking forward to next year too. My wife will get her SS in January and we will be semi retired. The writing work seems to be growing so we should be OK except for the health insurance debacle. I am too young for Medicare and make too much for Medicaid but affordable healthcare is more than SS

Hey Froggy ~ I too have noticed that things are not as busy as they use to be. I am trying to get on here a little more, but sometimes it just isn't possible. I have been in and out of the hospital with pneumonia, which has not been fun. Thankful that my husband still has his job and we have insurance thru his work. I am too young for SS and Medicare, just turned 51 this month. We do what we can, and go from there. After the holidays might hit you up about the writing thing. So glad to see you back around!!!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving, just in case I don't make it back on here between now and then.
