What’s it like to work from home

Everyone asks me how I’m handling working at home. Well – when you have this face next to you on the couch and a laptop on your lap – how could you not love working from home? [update] For those who are wondering – Coda is at my feet – she’s not a cuddler like Beau, but she keeps nearby as well. [/update]

In reality, I’m finding it great! Everyone was right – I’m very much cut out for this. I work from 7am to noon with no problems. I stop for lunch and then come right back to working. The only interruptions are when the pups whine to be taken out – and how is that any different then colleagues coming up to your desk to chat?

I do miss the personal interactions, but if you take a look at my calendar you’ll see that I’ll have no shortage of those over the coming months as I travel and talk with people about open source.

So, as a summary of my first few weeks at LibLime – I’m loving it!!

  1. Welcome to the world of the home office! I’m impressed, at your desk at 7am! My hours are a bit different. :-) But I love working from home, been doing it for 11 years now. Lots of flexibility and frankly, I think I get more done. But I do miss the people sometimes. So lots of lunch meetings. And strangely, even though I don’t post much on twitter, just dipping in there now and then lets me know others are out there.. somewhere….
