I have been working from home for more than 6 years. I make money through writing for online as well as print media, however, I spend more time working online and I make more money from online writing.
There are some drawbacks of working from home. I often run out of work, I my home budget is always tight. Sometimes for days I don’t have any work and sometimes I have to work more than 12 hours in a day.
As I work from home, a large portion of my earnings come from online work, online writing so to speak. In the past few months, I am looking for works that are not directly related to writing. I do farming, but agricultural income is so little. Perhaps, I should start a business.
Weekends and holidays may be fun day for many people, however, for someone like me who works from home, every day happens to be a working day.
You might be thinking, since I work from home, I can take a leave whenever I want. Sadly, this is not the case. I have to work in a tight schedule and plan according to the contracts I have in my hands.
There are many benefits of working from home for instance you are your own boss, you work at your convenience. However, there are also disadvantages of working from home. I don’t have a vacation, I don’t have a holiday. I don’t have a weekend.
This weekend I spent some quality time with my family and worked on some writing assignments.
