If there is anything I have learned about working from home it is that just like our car has mileage so does our house. Working from home means I am wearing and tearing my home more than if I were gone most of the day…which simply adds more work for me. It also means my carpet wears out faster, my electricity bill is higher and home is more than a place a to sleep. Remember to take an extra few minutes today and make your home a little more personal. I am going to buy and hang a cork board by my desk…something I have needed to do for far too long but just never wanted to spend the ten bucks or take the few minutes. What will you do today?

KeyForCash is rebranding
KeyForCash, a low wage data entry company, will be changing their brand from KeyforCash to Virtual Bee tomorrow, September 15th.
The usual keyforcash.com link will still work but will simply transfer you to their new link at VirtualBee.com.
I checked out the new site and I am a little excited by what I see. It appears to me that KeyforCash, rather Virtual Bee, is possibly expanding beyond just data entry. Although this company is known for not paying very well, it is still a reliable company that has been paying work at home workers for over a decade. I look forward to these changes and to seeing what opportunities this may pose for us virtual workers.
A New Work at Home Job Website is in the Works
Shanae, the Smartchic of Smartchicology.com, is helping on a new project called NonPhoneGigs.com. I love the concept because when I was desperate to find a non-phone job a couple of years ago, I was hoarding all the resources I could find! They are hoping to have the website available Monday, September 17th, but that is not set in stone. You can ‘like’ the Facebook Page to stay updated and be the first to know when the site is live.
Stay in the Work at Home Loop

Coming Soon to Work at Home Adventures
Jess Weaver will be talking about dealing with depression while working from home. This is a subject I know many of my readers are facing and in fact, one of the main reasons many people choose to work from home. Depression is more than a state of mind, it is a disease. I look forward to sharing her article and opening up that discussion!
