When I started this blog one of the ideas that interested me was the ability to assist felons with legit and high paying jobs. The reality is felons have a hard grind in the job market unless they have an inside hookup or a massive amount o f family support. And since I would confidently wager that the overwhelming amount of felons do not have an inside hookup for a legit job, nor a massive amount of family support, it’s safe to reason that there is an online need for proper and sincere guidance.
I’ve been absent from this blog for a little while because I’ve had a lot of personal distractions to contend with. I’m in the process of relocating and I’ve had unexpected visitors to my living space. That being said, I must say that when my original thoughts for this blog space developed, I had the notion to focuse on things that were important to ex offenders hence the entire jobs for felons mindset. Somehow down the road I noticed distractions within my own though process which pretty much derailed my original focus.
It did occur to me that ex offenders might just need a place to vent or share some views, concepts, ideas, and some of their own personal insight on life in general as an ex offender. There were a lot of things going on in the country when I began this blog, there was and still is the war in Iraq, there was all of the hype and buzz about the historic presidential elections, then all of this news flooded the media regarding the credit crunch and the world economic downturn. Then there was all of ths stuff about Bernie Madoff and the multibillion dollar hedge fund scams, then I became majorly preoccupied with the Federal Reserve Banking system and potential zionist influence within the world money markets etc.
Being a bit of a news junkie and not being a writer, I admi I became increasingly distracted by most of the headline news that was happening in our world and I think this has had a major impact on my wavering thoughts and blog contributions. The good thing about my own blog is that I’m not really accountable to a supervisor in the traditional sense of the word, yet it was browser comments that sort of inspired me to take a more dedicated focus on where this blog should go. Ok ok, it was 1 browswer comment but the comment was clearly an earnest request from a convicted felon who was seeking a job.
This indicates to me that I need to focus on content specific for Jobs for felons as much as I can. In order to help out where I can I’ll do some research, perhaps make some phone calls and compile some useful content specific to the availablity of jobs for felons during the recession.
I won’t rule out discussing other things but I think it’s important for me to honor the title of the blog since I know first hand how frustrating it can be to enter in search term and find results which are not meeting the expectations of the keywords entered into the search engine.
By the way has anyone heard the statements that Hulk Hogan made recently about “understanding OJ Simpson”? Hulk is currently involved in a messy divorce and if he’s not careful with his emotions he may end up in the slammer. Naturally none of us want to see that.
Until next time,
Because every ex offender should have a little Phoenix in them.
