Here’s a great alternative to working from home, bringing your baby to work.
I can see the raised eyebrows already but let me explain.
There are some workplaces that are baby-friendly. People work, they bring their babies, and that’s how it operates.
I think this is great for families and great for businesses as well. After all it lowers daycare costs, parents won’t be so reluctant to return back to work, more fathers could be involved, and I’d think employees would be happy to work for a company that was so supportive.
What about getting work done, what about if the baby cries, and isn’t that unprofessional?
I can’t say I have the answers because I’ve never seen it implemented but I don’t think it’s as bad as it may seem.
After all, people say the same thing (and more) about people who work from home.
If anyone has any experience with this I’d sure like to hear about it.

Whether it’s a co-worker, boss, client, associate, or friend, here’s a list of great gift ideas…provided that this person is a total web addict. The best thing about these gifts…if you’ve waited until the LAST MINUTE to do your shopping you won’t have to worry because they can be delivered online.
Give the gift of flickr. The best thing is if you buy a one year gift, you’ll get 3 months of the Pro service added to your account. This offer expires January 31, 2008.
I think a Godaddy gift card would make a great birthday present for anyone with more than 3 domain names or websites. I think this gift certificate would be WONDERFUL (and a subtle hint) for the person who has a blog but refuses to purchase their own domain name. It would also make a nice holiday gift for someone who you are just trying to be nice to.
Who doesn’t shop on Amazon? Because the sell just about everything including kitchen sinks, an Amazon Gift Certificate is a great gift for any man, woman, or child with a computer and internet connection.
For something that’s a little more personal, try a MOO gift certificate. That way the person can use their flickr pro account that you so graciously gave them in order to print their favorite pictures as mini-cards, notecards, postcards, or stickers.
If you really want to be a fancy pants, treat your favorite web addict to a new computer or computer accessory. These gift cards from Dell can be delivered via email.
For the web addicts out there, what kinds of gifts would you like to receive?
Note to my husband, feel free to get me anything on this list.

This blog is about making life easier and I don’t have a virtual assistant?
I don’t believe one person can be great at everything so I’m often perplexed when someone wants to be my VA and they are sure they can provide:
- Writing Services
- Graphic Design
- Link Building
- Web Design
You are telling me that you are an expert writer/web designer/graphic artist/ search engine guru?
Unless you are outsourcing some of these tasks, I’m just not buying it.
