For those of you who don't know me, my name is Sylvie Charrier, and I'm the head honcho at Workaholics4Hire.com
. What is Workaholics4Hire? It's a unique place on the web, which started in 1999 as a simple discussion forum where people who were interested in working from home could get together, chat about how to find jobs, and basically, feel a lot less alone in the world.
Well, over the years, we grew, and we grew, and we grew, and I've had a nagging feeling that something was missing. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, until recently when it hit me like a lightning strike. We got so busy and created such an efficient way for people to get jobs, that we forgot about the equally important need of the people, to have a hang-out, a place to talk, a place to comment, a place to share their views. Sure, we had a discussion forum, but due to spammers, we have needed to spend too much time blocking people from posting, and the discussion forum just wasn't fun anymore.
So, one day, it dawned on me. How can I create a place where our members and friends can hang out, without opening up the floor to spammers? The answer came in the form of one of our own clients, who we handle customer support for. His product is all about blogging, and the more we learned about blogging, the more I liked the idea. It is the perfect way for us to get our word out there, chat directly with the members publicly, and have a real community where you are free to post comments on everything we post here.
Here's what I'd like to see happen here.
First, I really get busy with the projects we handle, and sometimes it's a little isolating. I'd really like the opportunity to talk more, directly with everyone here, and give you some insights into what makes me tick, what I do everyday, and share some insider's secrets for getting real work at home jobs.
Second, I'd also like to use this to let you know about the internal jobs we need filled, but these will only be posted after being sent to the members first.
Third, I would like to know what you have on your mind. If you have questions about anything to do with working from home, send it to us at Support@workaholics4hire.com
with "Please talk about this on your blog" in the subject line, so we know what it's about. I, or one of our very capable staff, will do our best to respond to the issue here, by creating a blog entry for it. This way, you all can have the benefit of learning all together.
Fourth, I want this to be an interactive experience. I want your comments! Speak your mind, tell me what you think, I really want to know. Remember to keep it pleasant and no swearing or ads are permitted, but apart from that, feel free to say whatever you like about the posting. Let's see if we can make this truly the place where we all want to hang out every day!
That's about it for now.
