I am lost and need some fellow blogger assistance. I am having a very difficult time being "ok" with where I am at career-wise and a big change needs to be made and soon. I am working part-time at a job that I half love and half hate. I love my job in the children's room, but it's not enough. I don't get paid enough and I was denied for full-time, so it just doesn't pay the bills. I need a full time job, preferably working with books, but there is nothing other than where I am at. No other libraries, no publishing companies, nothing. I'm stuck. Then Aaron gives me the idea to do something more with this blogging, but I have no idea where to even start. I would love to do this and get paid for it, but does that even happen? Is that even a possibility? Right now I just blog what I think about books, I don't really proofread or plan out what to write in a professional manner, I just do it. Spell check is as far into the editing field that I go, but if I fixed things and concentrated on writing longer, more in-depth, professional reviews could I get paid for it?
Even if blogging for money wouldn't work out, is there anything out there that revolves around books that does pay money? At this point, it doesn't even have to be about books, as much as I would like it to be. Are there any real work-at-home opportunities? I do a little freelance reviewing for a Christian publishing company, but those only come sporadically, definitely not bringing in the money. I need something and I need it quickly. I want to stay in the library field, but that doesn't seem possible right now, at least not until we are able to move somewhere with more than one library to choose from.
Any help you can offer would be great. If you have an idea of what I could do with this blogging or how I could make money from it, please let me know (or fill me in on if I'm just dreaming). If you have work-at-home suggestions, please send them my way. Any friendly advice would be much appreciated. I'm desperate at this point!
