#NaBloPoMo March 2015

So, I am totally cheating here as I really do not have a plan for March aside from doing #NaBloPoMo in part because I am getting older which when that stops well, I guess eventually my posts will stop too.

Part of the trial and error of participating in #NaBloPoMo is to connect with a larger audience and other bloggers. Equally, I have to post everyday regardless how I feel or want to rather celebrate my day..which I learned was a whole lot of other people day too. Sharing my birthday is one thing, working thru it and dealing with getting older well that is just not fun.

I will try to be good and tone down my snark and keep an open mind but, the truth is I am totally copping out by doing this ...good news for you, I am not repeating my posts too much :).

Travel Photo : Scene Stealing

Somewhere in my 1000 plus photos there is one or two that I can look at and immediately go to that time and place where the photo was taken.

I think about the day, what was the purpose of the travel and how the scene captured something I wanted to remember.

Of all the times I have traveled I have found fun and hope and love whether of art, wine, or of people. I find sometimes the scene unfolds as I wander around and then sometimes the picture comes into focus.

What was it like to do Blogher for March ? well...

Repost : Seasonal Work in March

This is one of the ways I tried to help those who looked for work and if you want a summer job check in March

Job Hunting Tip #22 : Seasonal Employee work

I was working as a seasonal employee to my dismay when not one, two or three job seekers came into my employers store and asked if they are hiring. It was a week before the holiday so, in case you are one of these people looking for specific seasonal work here are a few guidelines...not science or rules just something to think about....

1. Who do you want to work for? A law office, a tax professional, a retail establishment, the government or education facility
2. Do you know the season you want to work for ? Weekends, Summer, Nights, tax season
3. Are you really available to work? Weekends, 4 hour shifts, early morning

Okay, once you have an idea here is a few more questions
1. Location? near your own neighborhood where people you see will see you or in a new town?
2. Have you applied before to this employer?

While this seems like a lot of work I am going to give you an example ...

This example is you want to work at the boardwalk in the summer. now you are thinking its January and summer starts in June so you should apply in ....what month?

March, yes, March. If you go to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk website there is a listing of dates and companies and meetings and activites you need to know this information to continue in your pursuit of getting said job.
Why you are applying in March is to get your name on their brain early, to make sure they know you want to work for them. All those events and activities pick at least two and go to at least one. Get to know the tour bus companies, the confectioners, the operators and managers in March because in April and May you are going to email, call and stop in asking when they are hiring.
By June you should have had an interview or scheduled an interview because the time that the employees are needed is July 4th weekend then you are there until after Labor Day.

That is just one way to get a seasonal employee working job. Remember sometimes these jobs turn into full time permanent jobs too so good luck...and one thing to remember...

If you want to work in December apply in September, if you want to work in April apply in January, if you want to work in June apply in March and if you want to work at all you must apply a lot more than you thought you could...

Good Luck

You are welcome.

You really should thank me for not trying not to panic over getting a year older. Yes, I could very well have contrived worry over the whole “you are getting a year older” alas No I have not.

For that I hope you appreciate the narcissism sacrifice I am making for your own good.

Not to mention, its not like I am getting younger now that would be cause for worry.

Instead here are some things you can do to avoid worry altogether…

Recycled News

Todays #NaBloPoMo prompt from +BlogHer is:

Which way was better: getting all of our news at a single point or two in the day, or the birth of the 24/7 news cycle, with news being reported all day long?

Um ...the 24/7 news cycle is just regurgitation of what happened in the past 24 hours. 

Okay, I am going to pass on this one sorry @Blogher its the last day and this is the prompt ...

Well, March NaBloPoMo is ending and I am kinda thinking I should have just taken the month off instead. I really did try to do all I could to promote the other people on Blogher's NaBloPoMo and jump thru all the hoops. 

Let's review 
  • First, I used the prompts 
  • Second, I posted the posts on both my blogher profile and my personal blog
  • Thirdly, I promoted both sites on Social Media ( Tumblr, Twitter, Google Plus)
  • Fourth, I entered my blogpost in the NaBloPoMo feed and I left a comment 
  • Fifth, I promoted other bloggers doing NaBloPoMo
  • Repeated each day about 3 hours a day spent doing this until my vacay. 
Its a lot of work to blog but I am not a news source nor am I a journalist. I blog for my siblings to know what's up with me and a pesky Google bot. 

Thus a reason why I will be shutting down my personal blog by March 17, 2017. 
  1. It is not fun anymore, doing NaBloPoMo is suppose to help - its not
  2. My siblings can just call me 
  3. I run out of topics
  4. I can highlight businesses on different platforms ( LinkedIn and Tumblr) 
  5. It will be 10 years and that is enough
I will do NaBloPoMo in May and August because I just can't do those months. Its incredibly hard months for me personally and I just rather not blog at all but part of growth is to do something you don't want to do. Its been suggested I do Blogger University prompts but those would mean later than normal posts for me. I do have standards. 

So, Goodbye March ...let's see what April is up to ....
