It’s been a long year. Well, almost a year since I last posted. If any of you were keeping track of that. When you manage a couple hundred websites and projects for numerous other people, personal projects and blogs tend to fall to the bottom of the priority pile. The same old story of the cobbler’s kids never have any shoes.
Since it’s time to wake this blog up and shake the dust off it, I felt a guest posting would be the perfect thing to feed the machine. Kathleen had contacted me a long time ago wanting to be able to write for this blog so what follows is her awesome article on how she believes people can utilize the internet to either make money online or even search for a job. I hope you enjoy and if you do let us know! In the meantime I shall be getting some more posts ready to go. 🙂
