About a year and a half ago, I began to work from home. No, not through one of those Facebook ads advertising how single moms can make $5,000 a week just from their home computers. I am not a single mom, I don’t make that much, and what I do is completely legitimate and legal, something I doubt very much about the Facebook ads.
On the whole I love working from home. I get a lot done and can do it all in my pajamas if I so choose. But occasionally I miss having other people around. So when the loneliness becomes too crippling, I head out to a cafe or coffee shop to work and mingle with humanity. In fact, I started doing it so often that I started a blog about working in cafes in New York. I call it Cafe Talk, and have the (clever, I think) tag line “when you work from home in New York, the entire city is your office.”
