I moved back here over 2 years ago and it amazes me how difficult it is to live and work here. I tried finding work in my field, but couldn’t believe that I was offered $10K less than what I made back east. Especially when the cost of living back east is so much lower. Makes no sense.
The templates on WordPress.com are much nicer than most I’ve seen. Let’s hope their blogging software/application is much better than others I’ve toyed with.
What do all of you think so far? Those of you of course that have been blogging with WordPress.com and several others?
I really can’t understand how I could easily make $45K for what I do back east. But here, where the cost of living is double what it is back east, they want to pay me $32-35K for the same type of position??
And to think people wonder why I’d rather suffer through freelancing. It pays better even if the jobs are few and far between. And I get to keep my sense of pride and dignity!
Yes, that’s right I’m a freelancer.
If you’re wondering why I have a blog you’ll have to come back in a few weeks to get your answer. ; )
See you then!
It was a great day! I worked on 4 new templates and 3 redesigns.
New customers get a 3-page site with info about their shop, images, and a map of their location. I took the time to simplify the main template for ease of use cutting the time to 30 mins to complete a customers site.
