Have you ever wanted to stay at home and earn a living at the same time? This is now very possible what with the growing number of jobs that can be done in the comfort of one’s home.
Blogging jobs, for instance, are in great supply right now and they can be done practically anywhere as long as one has a laptop or even a tablet with an internet connection. Those working for employers can also easily communicate using the advanced and free tools available online.
Surveys have found that more people are opting to work from home these days. A 2012 study commissioned by Wrike, as an example, showed that 83 percent of the more than 1,000 respondents claimed to have worked from home for at least part of their workday. Additionally, 66 percent of them said they foresee their office becoming virtual in the next five years.
Of those who work from home, many claimed they chose the option over free meals or mobile phone plans offered by their companies. More than 30 percent also did not mind getting a salary cut or fewer vacation days just so they can work in their abodes.
There’s so much to gain when one opts to work remotely. The advantages normally depend on what a person would like to achieve in his career.
Saves Time and Money
Time and money are primarily what a home-based blogger can save. As there’s no need to travel back and forth, one can save money normally spent on gas and since one stays at home, there’s no need to buy new clothes for use in the office. The cost savings moving forward can then be channeled to other needs of the family.
With time, you need not wake up early than you’re used to. You don’t even have to take a shower early in the morning because you can do it at a later time. In short, the time you used to prepare for work can now be used wisely in doing other important tasks at home.
While you may be stuck in working the same mundane tasks in the office, at home you can multi-task while doing your blogging job. By multi-tasking, it can mean doing several jobs as a freelancer or blogging while also managing other household chores.
You can manage your own time and achieve your goals in the manner you want it.
If you’re able to manage your time well, it is possible to maintain a stress-free life unlike when you are pressured in your office work. Since you are your own boss at home, there’s an opportunity to take short power naps or move around more often to recharge yourself.
Unless a personal relationship with co-workers is what you desire, working from home as a blogger is the best work set-up anybody can enjoy. Even bloggers who live in the city’s outskirts claim they are able to do their job remotely thanks to the rural internet service providers in my area.
