YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME KEEP MY JOB

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

My new employer wants to know about pro bono (free) work that I've done so I can pass my background check and keep my job.

If I have done some kind of work for you without charge, please email me at dumpedfirstwife@gmail.com if you are willing to write a brief email to my employer to say what kind of work I did for you and that I did not charge you.

Examples of work that I might have done for you without charge:

  • EDITING
  • REVIEWING/PROMOTING YOUR BOOK
  • PROMOTING YOUR BUSINESS
  • WRITING AN ARTICLE OR GUEST POST
  • WRITING A BLURB ABOUT YOUR BOOK THAT YOU USED IN A NEW YORK TIMES ADVERTISEMENT, ROBYN ALANA ENGEL
  • ANY OTHER WORK YOU CAN THINK OF AND YES I ENDED THAT WITH A PREPOSITION AND I AM NOT ASHAMED 
Please email me ASAP and when I'm not at work or making the long, treacherous commute, I'll let you know what I need you to do . I hope that writing and sending the email to my employer won't take more than 10 or 15 minutes of your time. I will also send personal emails to some of you because I know I've saved your shit been kind enough to help you out, so check your inbox before you email me at


You complete me.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. You promoted my business by running that contest. I hope you remember, I don't. It's another piece of my life on the floor of the red bus. But you did jog a synapse and we can put it together again. View from the Bench won the contest, the prize was a scarf, and I wrote answers to questions about weaving. It all can be written as a business promo; I'm still good at writing.

    1. You made me laugh, Joanne. Plenty of people have written emails, so you relax your synapse.

    1. You're such a sweetheart. I wish I could have a job as the grandma to your children.

  4. Would it help if I said that your blog is educational and has helped me master some tricky parts of language with your clever tips? That's free help, right?

  6. Good Luck! Although, judging by how many times I've read a post about you editing someone's work or promoting someone's work, I'd say that this should be a slam dunk.

    1. You're sweet, but no need for concern.

  8. All the best with this. I know you have helped with editing your friend's work, I assume for free, and I'm sure they will provide the documentation you need.

  10. Quite a while ago, I let you read My Island and you made several comments/suggestions. If you think that counts, I could write something appropriate for you.

  11. Oh, Janie, I wish I saw this sooner. :(

    Does providing moral support count?

    Love,
    Jessica
