The Art of Working Remotely

Whether you’ve been working remotely for many years, or are just starting out, you’ve realized that remote work can look very different. It depends on where you’re working. What you’re working on. Who you’re working for, and who you’re working with. It depends on where you live, and whether you’re on your own or living with a bunch of other people. As you put your time in as a remote worker, you’ll invariably realize …

“Hey, there’s an art to this working remotely thing.”

I’ve worked remotely for more than twenty years, and I realized that I had a lot to share so others wouldn’t have to learn the hard lessons (per se). We all have a lot to share. So let’s do that. This site is another step I’m taking to starting to build a community and moderate a conversation around remote work.

As a first step, you should totally jump into one of the weekly #remotechat twitter sessions. They’re a lot of fun, and a great way to meet other people who also work remotely. Twitter not your thing? No problem. There’s plenty to see on this site, and if you get FOMO from time to time, just subscribe to get updates.

Next, roll up your sleeves and check out one of the many topical pages about remote work on this site. Have something to contribute? Add a comment and start a thread there. You can also check out some of the chat-inspired blog posts.

Lastly, stop by the Spotlight section. It’s chock full of profiles of real-life remote workers, doing their thing from all corners of the globe.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the site. Enjoy #remotechat. And most importantly, enjoy everything that working remotely can offer you. It’s a great way to live and work!
