Thank you for stopping by my blog. It does help me when someone shares that they're also dealing with unemployment.
I was wondering if you would ever like to do a guest post on unemployment, marriage, family and such? Please just let me know.
If you would like a list of questions I'm definitely open to that to.
You can email me at ronaberrymorin@yahoo.com
