Faced With Difficult Decisions

I can't write 10-15 posts per day. My hand can not handle it and frankly, I do have a life. It may not be much of one, as I sit in my house 98% of the time, but I homeschool my children, clean, cook, take care of all of the bills, indoor animals... My husband... But we need money...

So here I am, faced with difficult decisions. Mainly the decision of not writing anymore. I cried for hours last night, as I am going to have to put the kids back in public school because in order for my husband and I to truly get on our feet, I am going to have to give up the things I love and get a real job.

It's not going to be easy with PTSD, Social Anxiety along with physical ailments, then again, what is easy?

I wish you the best of luck finding something that is a right fit for you. Things are just so hard these days.

There is no way that I can consume those maximum posts daily. But I will take it as a challenge.

{{{{{Lettie}}}}} When things are tight you must do what needs to be done. But don't give up writing totally, write what you can and where you can so you have an outlet for yourself. In the meantime fingers crossed you land the perfect job for you and the tough times start easing.

keep your head up. Life is certainly difficult and I struggle at everything I put my hand up. I do have hope that things will one day pick up and I hope you do too. There is no way I could write even more then 2 posts because I try to comment and read others blogs, as well I try to make the posts that I write with quality and so it's not like fast food blogging. I can't imagine anyone really making much of a penny off this site but if you can then all the power to you. This site for me is more about reflection. You seem super busy and you should take time for yourself! I hope your not too stressed and I wish you the best!

Just hang in there and always trust God that He can provide for everything. When my sister and I was still studying my mom is also in attempt on transferring u to a public school, but my mom is really prayerful person and she always gets a way to have an extra income. While you still searching for a job just try Persona, hub pages, and I am not sure about feverr. Anyway extra time will be needed. You might want to wake up early to blog or just to simply clean the house and cook breakfast, and when you cooed, try to cooked food that will last until dinner. God bless your whole households and the works of your hands.

Something good should come along for you. Pray and have faith.

There are some folks who manage to homeschool and work outside the home, but it works best with older kids who can be trusted to work independently. I pray the answers come to you easily....

Writing online, unless one has some excellent connections, is probably not the way to make a living. Not anymore, anyway. And to write 10 or 20 pieces a day here probably won't bring you 20 cents -- for now. Maybe in future.

Best of luck in getting a job and I hope it is a job that not only helps you earn money but is rewarding too. I also hope you have a good boss and people you work with.
