Unemployed?
Start a blog to tell prospective employers you are searching for work. There are currently 215,200 unemployed workers in Minnesota, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Read more. . .

As I am now one of the 215,200 after my recent layoff, I have posted my resume on my blog to help snag my next job. Click here to see my resume and search my blog.

Using free resources, like a blog, is a great way to network to your next job. Remember, if you were laidoff, it’s because your former employer could not afford to keep you on the payroll, not because of your work. My motto is,

” I will get a better job than the one I was laid off from!”

Start your blog!
I invite you to join me at AreaVoices.com and create your own blog. It’s free, really! Just select a topic related to health, money, travel, family or food. I am sure you have an interest in one of the topics and you can share your ideas with the community at AreaVoices.com.

View Areavoices blogger Tami Tagtow’s blog Look At This. I spotted her blizzard videos on Facebook and encouraged her to share her videos with the Areavoices community for more people to enjoy. You can do the same by starting your own blog!

See my most viewed blog with photos of racing pilot Jimmy Leeward from 2005 when I was an employee of The New York Times Company.


In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Note: In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. I was living and working in Florida, an employee of The New York Times Company. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Update
Please see Friends of pilot remember a hero by By Marian Rizzo, Ocala.com.

From Ocala.com
“Even before that fateful moment, Leeward has seemed a hero to many others. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, said the Leewards attended services there. Jimmy was on the church building committee and also supported the construction of Trinity Catholic High School.” Read full story at ocala.com

What I remember about the afternoon I spent with the Leewards was how humble, and accommodating the couple were during the photo shoot. Please see below more photos in a photo gallery, mainly by a the yellow J-Cub plane.

What’s Jannet doing?
She is not letting dust settle on her in Central Minnesota after a recent layoff, but does have a plan. Between applying for jobs, she is learning HTML, CSS and more. Oh, and why do you ask? She wants to be a web designer, but is willing to learn what is needed for the her next job. Books and online learning are just part of her steps to employment.
