Working from home...

It is SO hard to find anything out there...I have applied to literally everything that I can find...had testing today that didn't go so well (I feel like a huge dummy) I have spent hours everyday online trying to find something...there are these amazing lists everywhere...on here, but nothing. The only thing that I haven't tried are the writing jobs...it's hard for me to imagine that I could be a writer or that anyone would want to read what I have to say coming from this muddled around fog machine I like to call a brain. That and my sister is like the most amazing writer! I just feel lesser than when we are doing the same kinds of things, so that is a route I don't want to go.
My husband is disappointed that the testing didn't go well, he didn't say anything but I know the look of disappointment when I see it and it's so painful that I am the one that inspired that look on his face. I think that's the hardest thing, when the person you love most in this world is disappointed in you. Thankfully he's too great of a guy to say that he is.
Sorry for this little rant...I was just feeling kind of stupid and sorry for myself. lol BUT my search continues...someday, somehow I will pull something out of the internets that thinks my befuddled self would be a great fit for their job. :-)

    I am sorry to hear that you are having a hard time finding an online job. It is really hard and there is a ton of competition. Just keep trying and be persistent. My persistence is what led me to my first work from home job many years ago. Keep trying and don't give up!

      Sorry things didn't go well today. I'd encourage you to keep looking. Sometimes it takes time to find something. Have you looked through all our old thread already? Craigslist?

      I get on to Craigslist every day. Even if it is not a work from home job but sounds like it could be I email and ask if that is an option...I have actually gone through all the lists on here and applied to everything that I could. The biggest problem that I have when it comes to some of the more well known companies is the fact that I worked for myself for so long. The feedback is that they like the fact that I can work alone but not the fact that I haven't worked under a boss that many years. Some employers LOVE that I have been self-employed but I am finding that most do not like it.

        What were the tests like? I once took a copyediting test for a job and totally bombed it.

        It was for an ad reviewer rating landing pages for sites...I know I'm not stupid...I used to prep charts for a vets office with 8 vets and learned all their medical terms and ran their front desk.. .I taught color theory classes to other hair stylists...but this thing was SO confusing though! Even following their guidelines I got just about everything wrong...I'm not used to failing tests. lol

        I'd never think that you were stupid, Amy! If the information was presented badly, then it's probably not you!

            At this point I am looking for anything that does not want me to have a silent work area. Or something I could do at night when the house is quiet. At some point I plan on going back to school when my little guy is just a little older, that and I haven't figured out what I want to do yet. I may wait until he is in school before I go back.

              I think I have an account on there. I will have to spend some more time on there and see if I can find anything...I don't mind not getting rich...just something to help out is all I need :)
