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 major recession that occurred back in 2008-09 (I lost it in April 2009), and I was never able to secure another job in my professional field again after a massive job search that covered several years.
For over two decades I worked in Academia at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, in the area of Student Affairs/Student Services. And then, without warning, my career in academia was over (prematurely by at least ten years) since my years’ long job search never produced another job. So I guess you could say I’m officially retired at this point in time. Additional information is available on my “A Brief Bio” page, and also on my second blog at this link.
When I started this blog, “Sara’s Musings,” in July 2010, I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts in April 2011 as I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts, and most of those first posts sounded like a personal diary. However, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up, and this time it just took off, and I am still publishing on it over a decade later. All of the blog posts on this blog are listed by year and title in a “Table of Contents” page at this link. The table of contents page is also available at the top of this blog titled “Links To All Blog Posts.” In April 2018, I created a second blog titled, “Reflections on the Journey,” on WordPress (click here to go to that blog). The latest blog post on each blog is listed below:
