is deader than a doornail.
I need a new job.
Short and sweet this week,
but the sentiment is real.
Need ideas, please.
Oh, to be able
to make a living blogging.
It gives me pleasure.
Writing has become
key to unlocking my heart.
If only it paid ...

Edited to add the following public service announcement:
So I wrote my haiku and went to A Mommy Story to link it up. And had it not been so poignant and right on for me, I would have laughed.
Because Mommy Story's Christina had haiku'd about jobs and hard times as well -- but she linked back to a BRILLIANT idea by Kristen of Motherhood Uncensored.
The premise is simple enough. July has sucked for many people. There are people who have lost jobs, have health problems, are in a bad way.
Me? I still have my job, but under circumstances that become more demoralizing every day, and I am now on the hunt for something new, if not better. It's tough for a 55-year-old woman to get out there in the job market after almost 28 years in one place and fight the young whippersnappers for lower paying positions.
Anyway, to help boost ad revenue for bloggers in need, Kristen proposes that we do the following for Blog the Recession Month:
If you read blogs, then for the month of August, make the "pledge" to click through from your feed reader. No obligation to leave a hilarious comment or send a long stalkerish email (although both, within reason, are always lovely). Just click through and if you're feeling generous, click around.So click away, my friends. I intend to do the same for you.
Just those extra page views can make a big difference for bloggers who could really use the help ...
