Default Resume Advice/Questions

Hi everyone,

I am updating my resume to apply to a new position and I am unsure of how list some online work that I have done in the last few years. I have been unemployed and traveling the country with my fiancee since July 2011. During that time I wrote articles for Squidoo and Hubpages, I designed t-shirts on Cafepress and Zazzle and I created a number of blogs that have generated an income for me. I feel that all of these activities have taught me valuable skills in organization and self motivation, as well as internet and marketing skills. However, I have no idea how to list these on a Resume in a way that would be acceptable to potential employers and fill in the gap in employment. Since all of these have been on different platforms, rather then an individual blog/website I can't really list it as a business name and Title. I am stumped.

Thank you in advance for any advice on the subject.

Lauren

Maybe you could categorize all of those under the category of Independent Contractor or Internet Entrepreneur?

Just a thought.

I agree - list the title as mentioned above or even Freelancer? But then be specific on each of the jobs/projects you've done to emphasize the skills and experience you achieved.

Good luck!
