• How Stay-at-Home Parents Can Market Themselves for Return to Paid Employment

    Many stay-at-home moms (and dads too) have been out of the paid workforce for so long that they think they’re not employable. They’re mistaken.

I've never been one to follow conventional wisdom—at least when it doesn't make sense to me—and I'm not about to start now. Conventional wisdom says to limit your blog to one topic (e.g., writing) or to related topics (e.g., writing, reading, publishing), but my interests are too diverse.

While a good deal of this blog will be devoted to writing, editing, and resumes, I'll also explore topics in health, science, education, and a smattering of other areas. After all, I'm not only an editor and writer, but I am or have been a dentist, teacher, naval officer, environmental researcher, wife, parent, and pet owner.

I hope you'll take some time to provide comments on the posts.
