Home Office Help – Turning 50 (Articles that is!)

Spread the love

When I first set up this website, I didn’t think I would get ten articles written but yet here I am writing my 50th article. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun???

So, for my 50th articles I thought I would just do a quick recap of what articles i’d written so it might act as a quick reference for those of you who have just found my site or want to find an article quickly rather than scrolling through.

I’ll split it into three groups of articles: the ones where I review products, those where i’m giving tips and hints and those which fall into neither category, so without further ado here are my articles with a brief summary of each:

Product Reviews

coffee machineSo I’ve reviewed a number of Home Office related items starting

with the basics – desks and chairs:

Desks come in all shapes and sizes and I reviewed both traditional style desks HERE and some corner or L Shaped desks over HERE.

When it came to chairs as well there were a number of styles so I split it into normal office chairs HERE and then did a special article on executive chairs HERE.

Other items I reviewed included Coffee machines HERE, the best work from home gadgets HERE, the best keyboards HERE, the best printers HERE, and a range of monitors HERE.I included some tech that I have used to improve my home office HERE, and I even reviewed a few books HERE which may help you to work from home.

For those of you with friends, partners or colleagues who work from home I reviewed a range of gifts which would be welcomed by the recipient rather than a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine (not that I would ever say no to a bottle of wine, obviously!) Those articles for gifts are HERE and HERE, and for smaller more lighthearted gifts I wrote this one HERE.

So plenty of articles to help you decide on options for your work from home office. If you think I’ve missed anything out or would like me to give you my input on any other items please don’t hesitate to write in the comments below and I’ll get back to you.

Tips ‘n’ Hints ‘n’ Stuff

As well as product reviews I gave my own hints and tips on a frustrated

range of subjects pertinent to to work from home.

Especially just now as we navigate through a global pandemic, many people who had not contemplated to work from home before were forced into it. So an article on working at home safely especially with children around too seemed like a great idea. You can find that article HERE.

I also wrote an article on how to reduce costs on your heating bills HERE. Exercising at your desk was another easy article to write as its something I really have tried to persevere with – exercising at your desk article is HERE and a general exercise ideas article is over HERE. Since the start of 2021 I also made a decision to try both yoga and Pilates and that article, you can find HERE.

Working at home can be stressful enough without added worry’s so I wrote an article on making it slightly easier if you have children at home too. That article is HERE. I also wrote one for those of us who have pets as well HERE. There was also an article on keeping on top of your email HERE.

As there are different personalities at the office I wrote an article detailing the different MBTI and how to work with them in a remote working environment. It was an interesting article to research and I found myself recognising traits in those I work with at the moment (whether good or bad is something I’ll never tell!) – you can find that article HERE.

Another interesting article was how best to plan for a holiday away from the office to ensure its as smooth as possible – its over HERE. I also wrote an article on getting the right Work from Home life balance – important in these stressful times – its over HERE.

On a lighter note (pun intended) I wrote about getting the light in your home office right – that’s HERE, whether becoming a digital nomad was do-able for you – HERE, as well as singing the praises of music in the home office HERE. I also wrote an article which you may find interesting about the benefits of having plants – surprisingly they are very beneficial – that one is HERE.

The OthersWFH

So there was a number of articles I wrote which don’t really fall into the two categories above.

I wrote a couple of articles on finding work from home opportunities in the current climate – they are HERE and HERE.

In addition to those I also wrote one with a specific opportunity in mind, and one which I would thoroughly recommend checking out if you’re looking at finding a hobby or something that could make some money to work from home – you can find that article HERE.

I even came up with an article on some easy lunch ideas over HERE – I have to admit I enjoyed making the recipes for those and still have the soup most days in this cold weather.

On top of these I wrote a couple of articles on the trends in to work from home that I am seeing – HERE, and HERE.

It wasn’t all serious, for those of you who are still having pub quiz style nights I wrote a specific article on how to host a good one HERE (and I even gave you one I have already made up to get you started!) and had a light-hearted word search quiz over HERE.

I’m sure I’ve missed out a couple of articles but that more or less sums up what I’ve been writing about over the last 50 articles. I have certainly enjoyed writing down my thoughts and it I really hope you have found them useful or at the very least a starting point for looking at options or ideas for further research.

If there is anything you would like me to look into on your behalf or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the comments below and I’ll be delighted to help. I look forward to hearing from you.

I also look forward to writing my next 50 articles and hope you will join me.

 

Please, as always take care, and thanks for reading.
