Welcome to Wondering Wednesdays, a weekly post to learn more about me and other bloggers 🙂 If you’re a blogger, please join in every week!
Today’s questions is – What’s your dream job?
Um…..being paid to read books. Obviously.
Anyone else have this dream!? I’m thinking we all do lol.
Okay, I do have a few dream jobs.
I think it’d be really cool to own a bookstore/bakery. It combines my love of reading and baking. Of course, it would be mostly a Christian bookstore, because those are scarce in my area. I see a small bakery – nothing huge. Just a small selection of baked goodies, made daily of course. And maybe coffee – because I love coffee. Don’t worry tea lovers, I’d have that too 🙂
I would also LOVE to work from home. This could be virtual assistants full time for authors. Right now I just do essentially side gigs for two people, so I’d need a LOT more authors on board to make it possible for me to be home. Also, I love proofreading. It’s like looking for those little mistakes that really irk me as a reader, and make sure they don’t end up in the print version. I really enjoy doing that.
I also have a dream of working for a Christian publishing company. This is hard to do, and I’d only be able to do it remotely, but I think it’d be amazing having a part in spreading the gospel, as well as assisting in getting some amazing books in the world. I keep looking at the jobs, but they aren’t really remote. So if you ever see one – let me know!
And lastly, I have these ideas kicking around about books for little readers. I’ve done research, and it’s (in my opinion) harder to get published as a picture book author, or even an “I Can Read” type author. So it’s still a dream. Maybe it’ll come to fruition one day and maybe it won’t.
So there you have it. A peek into my dream world. Like I said, the ultimate dream job would be to just get paid to read books. That’s about as close to heaven as I think we can get in this world. Well, as long as there’s peanut butter nearby 😉
What about you? What is your dream job!?
