What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

The End?

with 4 comments

It’s been a long time since I posted here at WSFAU, for a variety of reasons.

Such as: Last January, I was very sick. As in, the ER doctor told me I could have died. Thankfully, I didn’t die. But I did spend a week in the hospital. And I’ve had to see doctors and take drugs and lab tests regularly ever since then. But I feel much, much better now, thanks.

And after years of blogging about unemployment, I tired of blogging about unemployment. So I did other things. I worked part-time, I looked for other job opportunities, I kept going to Toastmasters and serving on the board of the Friends of the Ferndale Library. Last month, I started another blog.

Yesterday, I received a job offer from Kelly Services to be a call center representative for my favorite computer company.  I’m also beginning to volunteer my writing services for a few local organizations. They and I hope the pro bono work will lead me to other opportunities.

So this looks like it may be my final post here. I’ll keep WSFAU up and linked to my new blog, though. (After all, I paid for the domain name.)

“The staff” and I thank you for reading WSFAU and its Facebook page.

And if you’re unemployed, you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
