My commenting system is down. I am using a service through Apparently they are so overloaded from popularity that their server is down. If anyone knows another one to recommend, please let me know! In the meantime, while I figure this out, comment using either the right side bar or send me an email directly.

I just heard from someone that this blog was mentioned in Fast Company. I'm pretty excited. I can't find the mention on-line so am going to run out and find a hard copy. posted by Valerie 12:30 PM

I'm still getting comments from readers about this blog, so I'm keeping it up although I won't be updating it. And I'm willing to add links to other people's unemployment blogs. In fact, I just added one based on Homee's trials and tribulations of a young IT just graduating college. I graduated during an economic downturn, so I know what it's like to try to launch yourself. It's pretty scary. But I'm becoming more optimistic. Despite last month's stats that say we now have the highest unemployment in over a decade, I'm also seeing an upturn (not stable yet) in more leading economic indicators. Hopefully we are pulling ourselves out! posted by Valerie 2:30 PM
