How Do You Walk the Line Between Work and Home? Share Your Best Practices With ALA

by Published in Business, Industry13 Comments

At $4.14 a gallon in the United States, $5.29 a gallon in Canada, and $8.70 a gallon in the U.K., the price of gas is just one reason many web workers now commute from the bed to the basement as part of a conscious choice to work from home.

Gas prices, reduced overhead, freedom, and flexibility are some of the reasons why you love it. Tell us why you work from home. What’s the payoff for you?

Tell us how you overcome isolation, endless distractions, and temptation: the temptation to tweet, to procrastinate or to pop the top on a Heineken at 10 a.m. on a Tuesday, just because you can.

Tell us how you deal with kids and deadlines. Tell us how you walk the blurry line between work and home. Tell us about the tools you use.

Send your best practices on working from home to homebased at alistapart dot com (subject: “Working From Home”). Best answers will be published in a future issue.
