Do you Squidoo?
You can make some money by going to Squidoo through this link:
It's fun to make a page there. It's kind of like making a web page, but easier. Then they put all the ads on there automatically! They share the proceeds with the people there, kind of like a co-op does! I would have been there before now, but I just found out about it. I think it will be really fun. I put my new (1st) Squidoo page on today. It's about non-traditional students.
I decided to put some issues on my Squidoo lens page that non-traditional students deal with when they go back to school. Here are the ones I put on my article:
1. Children and families
2. Paying for school
3. Time and jobs
4. Face-to-Face classes vs. Distance Learning
5. Support - is there support at the college?
6. Paying for daycare
8. Feeling out of place
9. Deciding on a career change
10. Not being accepted
11. Responsibilities, and
12. Having rusty study skills.Any of these things can be very serious and develop into a bad problem for non-trads. I know that many people mentioned jobs and money, plus a lack of daycare help as reasons that they could not continue with school.
I think that some of the other problems, like not feeling accepted and feeling out of place, could be the kinds of things that people have a hard time talking about. They could be issues that are just a serious for people, though. Let me know if you out there can think of more I should have on my list. Thanks!
