One thought on “Working Resume

  1. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Bless you!
