Things I Wrote While Getting Laid Off

When I finally decided to use this blog as a promotional vehicle as well as for its original purpose of complaining and talking about my period, I promised myself that I wouldn’t spam y’all with thousands of posts full of links. So you don’t have to worry about dozens of these appearing on your wall unbidden or showing up in more than one corner of your social media presence. Still, if you’d like to know what I’ve been up to since the Lay Off, well, here it is:

Compensation: Why Average Salaries Lag at Small Companies

Jobs for Veterans: How Hiring Veterans Can Boost Business

Jobs That Died in 2011

The 10 Best Skin Care Products Under 10 Dollars

10 Cheap Sweater Dresses

The Best Cheap Job Interview Outfit

Taj Boston Hotel Review

You can also find a giant picture of my head with a lot of words under it, here: And if you wish to receive a newsletter from me in which I discuss my habitual cheapness, you can sign up for it here:

Some of these go back to when I was trying to freelance and work full-time, which is why it makes me tired just to look at them. As much as I’m getting nervous to be at the end of my severance, I’m glad I’ve got a lot of different things going on.

The big thing I’ve learned so far about freelancing is that even if you’re super organized, and the editors are super organized and everyone is lovely and well-meaning, something will happen to make it so that you don’t get paid for two months. My money-hoarding habit is starting to look less and less like a crazy way to be.
