I come from the world of academia. For over two decades I worked in higher education at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, and all except one was nonprofit. My area of expertise is in Student Affairs, and I held professional staff positions ranging from Academic Advisor to Coordinator to Director. I also worked with a variety of students (primarily adult students and graduate students) as well as staff, faculty, and administrators. Additional background information is available on my page titled, “A Brief Bio,” and also on my second blog, “Reflections,” created in April 2018, at this link.
I started this blog in July 2010 as a way to journal my experiences with long term unemployment as I lost my job at the peak of a recession that occurred back then in April 2009. I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts as I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts; however, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off, and here I am still publishing on it several years later. In fact, there are currently 600+ blog posts on it. And since I never did find another job in my professional field, I am now retired from the world of academia after working in that field for over twenty years.
All of the blog posts on this blog are listed by year and title in a “Table of Contents” at this link. The table of contents page is also listed at the top of this blog titled “Links To All Blog Posts.”
In April 2018 I started a second blog titled “Reflections on the Journey” on WordPress. The theme of this blog is on our journey through life–both physical and spiritual. Click here to go to that blog.
