January Book Review

For a couple of years I have been reading a blog about a female taxi cab driver in New York City. I have not linked to her before because I try to keep this blog family friendly and she is not afraid of the "f" work. I enjoy her blog very much and when she wrote a book, I knew that I wanted it for Christmas. Zac (who told me about the blog) gave it to me and I dove right in and read it cover to cover.

"HACK, How I stopped worrying about what to do with my life and started driving a yellow cab." by Melissa Plaut.




She tells about getting her "hack licence" and her adventures in the cab as one of the few female New York City cab drivers. She is college educated and took this job because she was not handling the office politics of the corporate world very well.

Drop by her blog and start at the beginning for insight into her book.

Hi Squire, That blog looks interesting. It'll give me a whole new view of things, I'm sure. Imagine, whipping through those NY canyons and getting paid for it!

Hello,

I’m sorry to leave this message in your comment box, but I did not see an email address for you. I found your site through RVthereyet.com. I read your recent posts and enjoyed them very much. I’m writing to see if you would be interested in trading links with me. I have a website called The Camping Machine (www.thecampingmachine.com) where I describe the travels and adventures of my young family in our travel trailer, including photos and videos, along with some feel-good stories in my blog.

If you would be willing to ad my site to your links I will link back to your site. I had nearly 1,000 unique visitors last month and my readership is growing, but I would like to add more links and readers. If you are interested in this please send me an email at campingmachineguy@gmail.com. Thanks very much for considering this and keep up the great work on your site.

Thanks,
Camping Machine Guy
