I'm feeling very frustrated and I need some help and support. The work I'm seeking is quite a niche and I'm having a very difficult time finding it, which is organic healthy green holistic herbal green living. Due to health challenges and the fact that I'm a full time new Mama, I must work from home. I'm a highly skilled typist, proofreader, writer, and I have a reliable functional computer and printer. I am very Internet and social media savvy. I'm also submitting my writing to various magazines and ezines. I type 100 wpm accurately and my English skills are excellent. I'm trying to emphasize the positive instead of the negative in this post. But I'm feeling very frustrated. I feel discouraged too, but unfortunately, I cannot afford to let that deter me or thwart me, especially because I'm a new Mama. I have found a few great jobs on a couple blogger job boards that are just right for me and I applied, but these job boards are few and far between. I check the wwwah forum and the job boards and va4u and a few others, but unfortunately, I'm not finding much. It's hard to believe that in the 21st Century with so many websites, that there aren't more great opportunities for me, but sadly, that is the case, and I don't know what approach and angle to take now. I posted an ad on this forum with my cover letter, resume', and my bio with links to my blog and social media pages. I have tweeted and shared my resume' and skills and talents on Facebook several times. Sadly, no replies. I hope no one minds my venting here. It is a vent in a way because I'm feeling so very frustrated, but I sense that it's ok to do this at times. After all, I'm in good company as far as frustration goes.

Has anyone here enjoyed any success with work from home that's actual freelance work and not a home based business? Can someone please help? Thank you. And if nothing else, thank you for your caring kindness and for listening.
  And I checked this https://www.mediapiston.com/writers website for writers and it was bought by odesk and is now closed. :(


Thank you for being fragrance-free! Wear organic or wear nothing!

I'm not sure what that means because it's another social media term jargon I'm not familiar with, but it sounds good.  Thank you for your kind caring support.  I appreciate it.

Bumping means I'm just moving it(your thread) up in line again since your post was almost 3 weeks old.
