5.) What do you love most about your job
Last week I got to fly to Colorado to visit Team BlogFrog because I work for them part time and every once in awhile they like to see my face and make sure I’m real. I sat at a real life desk in front of a real life computer for two WHOLE days!
I’ll admit, working from home for the last eight years I have found myself day dreaming of an office job on occasion. What would it be like to have purpose and camaraderie within a company? How lovely would it be to sit at a desk and work without toddlers begging for Cheetos!?!
So I got to do it!
And it was fun!
And it was exhausting.
The team I work with is hilarious and outgoing and the trip totally wore me out. I believe I’ve underestimated how hard staying that focused in an office all day can be.
I know that picture doesn’t really capture me working as hard as I felt I was working, but I swear I did work.
It became very clear to me why I reached into the computer and found blogging so addictive back when I started. It really WAS the adult conversation and connection I was looking for, and you know what? When you work in an office with people every day who meet those needs for you…you don’t really crave that online space and connection anymore.
I know this now because after spending my days distracting everyone at BlogFrog from working AND keeping them out late to drink wine with me, I had zero interest in jumping on Twitter to see what people were up to online. My tank was full. I was all yapped out. I had nothing left to add. My craving for adult interaction can be filled in this space online and at home OR with a company in an office…but not both. I could never hang.
What do I love most about my job?
I love that I have one!
Whether it be the daycare or my blog or BlogFrog, I’m just so glad there are people on this planet who trust that I can get a job done well while wearing slippers in my kitchen.
