So shadesong  did this post a little while ago, and I've seen a couple others mirror it, as viralness in the name of the public good is always worthy. I want to do the same, since, well, there are kind of a lot of you out there reading this.

So, please do not be shy. You rarely get what you need without asking for it.

What do you need?

Not "What do you want?" Which is an entirely different question. But what do you need? Are you looking for an apartment, a job, a ride to somewhere, assistance with something? Comment here, and maybe I or one of my readers can help you! The internet makes miracles, we all know it. Read the comments, and see if there's something you can offer.

I need bookkeeping work, either telecommuting or part time in Columbia, SC. I also need someone to move into my Atlanta house who can pay rent and utilities, or get the place off my hands.

Are you an accountant or just a freelance bookkeeping type? Do you have a resume?

I'm a freelance bookkeeper. I have the equivalency of a B.A. in accounting, and have taken other practical bookkeeping classes. I do have a resume.

I definitely am looking for someone to help us with taxes and such, since I am obviously a freelance writer and it's complex. Is that something in your skillset?

Alas, I am not really up on current tax stuff. I do my own taxes, and I don't have a problem with looking up current tax law, but I worry about messing up on other people's taxes.
If you don't find someone else let me know, and if you end up having to do it yourself I'd be happy to help you out with it. I mean, I know enough about expense deductions, self employment taxes, etc., and I did fine in my tax classes, I just don't know if I'm fast enough that it's a cost effective choice.

I did taxes for several years and had a particular interest in freelancing at the time. I am inactive, but would be happy to answer "is this deductible" type questions. I'm now a writer/translator and the two fields have a lot of the same types of deductions.

Hey, where in Atlanta? I know a lot of people who live down there who might be looking for places, depending on the location and price.

It's in Doraville, very close to Spaghetti Junction. It's a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house, mostly fenced in yard (lightning struck a tree in the yard and I think part of the fence fell down).
We need to get at least $1000 a month for mortgage purposes.
It's about 1900 sf.
Pets are welcome as long as they aren't going to eat the house.

I live in Cola-town. Here's some job searching tools for ya.
