After 42 years of living life in other people’s houses, I took the plunge and bought a home. For years, I rented (nothing wrong with that at all). For the last decade (plus one year), I worked in jobs that provided housing (3 years as a minister and 8 years at a residential care facility). Continue reading “Next Step for a New Home Owner”
Blogging for profit has become a pretty decent side hustle these days. Many people have gone out and put together a pretty respectable career in this line of work.
