I have worked from home for over a year now, so was very interested in Jonathan Mead’s Zen Habits post, “Escape the Cubicle Farm: Top Ten Reasons to Work from Home“. I agree with all of his points and really feel most productive with this lifestyle.
Here’s what I’m up to these days. I’m working on the book right now (manuscript due July 1st) and am also doing some independent consulting (for TechSoup, for the State Library of Kansas, for NEKLS, etc) and have some workshops and presentations scheduled, too (for SWKLS, for SWFLN, for Johnson County, etc). I’ll hopefully be doing some teaching, too,which would be great. It’s going to be interesting, juggling all of these different things instead of focusing on one primary job, so expect more posts about time management and project management over the next months. I’ll be learning as I go!
Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing. ~~ Yeats

Good luck with everything Brenda and hope to see and work with you again soon.
I loved the comment in the article about incense at work. Really? I’m always afraid I’m going to spark the sprinkler system on when I light up my incense and candles. 🙂
Thanks, Lori! Great to hear from you!
I don’t even use incense and candles when I’m working from home, but the thing I’m most glad to be able to avoid is the fluorescent lighting of most workplaces. Hate it. Natural light or bust! 🙂
