I also struggled with finding a job with the settings that I needed. I had a blog and a YouTube channel so I decided to work from home. I learned I can put affiliate links in my blog. I learned I can sell things through my blog. I also post on crypto blogs like Steemit.com. I decided to build that up. Then I had a problem. I had trouble getting my mom to understand why I made this decision. One day I she told me when it got warmer (this happened sometime last year going into this year) that she would take me to talk to the manager at Burlington or Marshal about a job. I tried to tell her that working from home is better for my anxiety. I just could not menace words. I told her how bad my anxiety is being in public spaces. Back in 2017, she claimed the doctor said I can do something where I am not around a lot of people but suggesting all of these retail places and NOT understanding these stories get busy.
I did write an article for an autism page and got paid via PayPal. It wasn't a lot but I remember maybe the page isn't that big right now and when they get larger so will the pay. I guy paid me in crypto to write an article for his website to help him get more users. I feel that my best bet is a job like this. I have no skills related to retail jobs, what my mom wants me to do. Imagine this interview for a writing position
Person: tell me about your writing experience
Me: I wrote an article about autism for an autism page, I wrote an article for a solo programmer to help him get his site heard. Wrote a guest story for a mental health blogger when I used Wordpress. Overall I started blogging in 2017 on Wordpress. If they ask why I moved to blogger I can say I checked out blogger and it was so much easier to navigate.
Imagine this interview for a retail job
Person: tell me about your retail experience
I think I'd have a better shot at a writing job or maybe a freelance video editing job.
I'd rather spend time building my blogs, slowly but surely building my earnings on them than to chase after a job that would barely pay me to live. Regardless of what you do for a job, anything can happen to it. At least if you have an online income you can easily diversity it so if something happens to YouTube, you have your Twitch or whatever you stream on, etc.
