working with a group of people is always fun
Working From Home? That can get pretty lonely.

With the influx of home based jobs available today, more and more people are opting to avoid the traffic and work in their pajamas. Not a bad thing huh? Technology sure brings wonders to today's world! Now you can be a secretary for a CEO outside of your country without having to travel a thousand miles. I wonder how much that'd cost you if that was your daily commute... I bet the fare'd be a killer! Anyway, now that you're working from home, you have all the freedom in the world to work at your own pace and deliver them within the deadline. No pressure, no additional expenses (transportation, clothing, etcetera), no officemates. Yeah. Pure bliss. Maybe for the first couple of weeks. And then you'll start missing the human interaction. Human beings are social creatures and every now and then we need some interaction. So let's do that! If you're working from home, whatever your job may be, you might want to get together. Working with a group of people is always fun right? And you can choose who you want to work with! No commitments. No time limits. No permanent office hours. Do you want that?

Hi Chepesterkhan, Well said I too agree for your statement, at present I do not work for any body since 8 months working in the home for nothing(means my efforts are futile to earn money). I am not worrying about my earning, now I am feeling bore in the home doing the same work daily in the net. When we work in the office the atmosphere is different and we can interact with people and feel some what secure than the lonely,have a nice day.

Personally, I cannot yet give my full opinion on this matter as I am only working online on a part time basis. I have a full time job so perhaps I can share some idea. Compare to my present job, my online income is, should I say gave me a comparatively low income. But as to the happiness, I admit, I really like to work online because I can work anytime, anywhere and I like it when I work alone. This is maybe because I don’t have enough time in order to learn everything about online working. So, I could say it is good to have both permanent offline and online job to be balance. However there are also others who are working online on a full time basis and they are really earning that much. It’s a matter of choice actually. Have a nice day!

I guess it depends on what makes you happy. If what makes you happy is, being able to be with your loved ones, like your children if already have, parents, brothers and sisters, then working from home would be a really enjoyable one.

I work at home because I suffer from a chronic illness that made it hard for me to leave the house some days. I'll admit, it does get lonely! Especially since I only working a few hours a day and my fiance works out of town so he's gone 12 hours each day. I have my pets to keep me company and my mom visits a lot. But I do miss my old job sometimes. I used to work in a craft store and I got to meet a lot of people and learn new things each day. I had friends I worked with and we'd go out to eat after work. That doesn't happen much now. But at least I'm still making money!

Uh, well. Even if we're working from home, we still need some commitments, we still need to deliver things within the deadline, and such. In fact, I don't really know what kind of real jobs for living that doesn't need our commitment.. Personally I prefer normal jobs. Social interaction is also one of the reasons. Other than that, it's about income. Home-based jobs are rather unstable, especially for someone who haven't any reputation yet.

Hi friend, you are right, most of the computer addicts forget about the socializing activities and interacting with their neighbors due to their online activities, they are interested in socializing in online sites, but don't have enough time to chat with their neighbors, we must allocate some time for our interaction with our friends and neighbors to live a balanced life.

Work from home is having a lot of benefits and lot of people are interested in doing online jobs from their home. Even some people give up their low paying offline job and concentrate in high paying online sites to increase their income. While doing online jobs, we are our own boss and do our work based on our comfort. As well as we can wear casual dress while working, there is no need to wear uniform and concentrate in our appearance, since we are doing our work from our home. We don't have any time restriction. We can do our work at any time as per our own comfort. No high qualifications are needed for online jobs as well as no age limitations are available here. Most of the home makers, retired persons, physically challenged persons are doing online jobs and make a good income from it. This kind of online jobs gives more confidence to the persons who don't have the ability to go outside for their work. There is no retirement for online job and we can do it at any age. Online job don't requires more physical activities, we can simply site as per our comfort and do our work without more strain, as well as we can get some relaxation while doing online jobs, we can listen music, take snacks and coll drinks while doing our job, also we can play game to get relaxation. Online jobs require a lot of patience and determination. It is hard to get a good income at the beginning, but we can make passive income as well as unlimited income based on our experience. Online jobs are the best way to make residual income for our life time without more strain and we can do it at any age as per our comfort. It is more lenient while comparing with tedious offline jobs.
