This is 2014 and Blogging has become a main-stream career option. If not blogging, you will find thousands of people around you working remotely on they dream project. I’m also one of those who work from home and most of my time is spent working online. Working online comes with it’s own share of good and bad. What concern me the most about working from home is psychological effects. It’s not rare for me and probably for you that you have spent 4-5 days without meeting any single person physically. You might be happy with the project you are working on, but at the same time you are missing out a lot in terms of happiness. Do remember, achievement and success are two different things. Achievement is not success whereas success is achievement.
Staying online for hours have various affect on health and me being a Blogger & a doctor, understand it better than most of you out here.
