Working From Home

7.05.2013

I know, it's been over a week.

Please don't hate. 

This summer has been a bit hectic so far, leaving me almost zero time to be home and invest in what I want to do. Traveling is a nice alternative, but if I'm going to be honest, it hasn't just been the traveling that's kept me away from this little blog. I've started to work from home *confetti and sparklers explode.* Yea, it's awesome. And I'm doing what I want to do -- creating content for an outdoor website. 

There is one little thing about working from home, though. After sitting at a computer for 8-9 hours a day, writing, I don't necessarily feel compelled to write anymore. Naturally my own blog has suffered. I didn't realize the complications I would have to overcome when I started working from home -- not wasting my own time, making other people understand that working from home is still working, self-scheduling, and the mental-exhaustion that comes from writing for 8-9 hours straight. 

I've worked plenty of difficult jobs, and I can honestly say that, in it's own way, working from home is very straining. So please bear with me as I figure this shiz out. Thanks.

As someone who worked from home for a year, I can attest to the the grind --it is hard, hard work, especially when you are in charge of yourself. On the other hand, how great is it to be able to look out the window, fix a cup of tea, or take a walk when you want?
On the OTHER hand, writing from home is much, much, much harder than working from home. I have been "writing" a blog in my head for a couple of months, and I still don't have the discipline to get the words to paper, so, Kelley, you are doing the amazing part -writing!
