I am a young, stay at home mother of three children under 5yrs, living in New Zealand. I am trying to venture back into the workforce as my youngest is now 7mths and as a family, we could do with an extra bit of income to live a bit more comfortably than we are now on just my husband's income. Unfortunately, it isn't realistic for me to go out and get a regular, full or part time job as the cost of childcare would mean most of my income would be spent on someone else looking after my kids while I work! So, I am trying my luck at online jobs that I can do from home while still looking after my kids. I don't have a background in writing, however I believe I have good skills for it. English was my favourite subject in high school and I did get good marks for writing assignments. I would love to see what freelance writing is all about and try to offer my unique stance on subjects, whatever they may be!
