Poll: Where Do You Work?


One of the things I love about being a blogger is the ability to work nearly anywhere as long as I can get an Internet connection. And to be frank, there aren’t many places I can’t get an Internet connection, since tethering my smartphone is an options and more restaurants are beginning to offer wireless hotspots. Right now, in fact, I’m in the middle of moving and my home Internet won’t be hooked up until Monday. So, I’m working via phone and at Panera/Starbucks for the weekend.

Lifehack: in case you need to find a hotspot for work, JiWire is a huge help – just pop your zip into the search bar and it will pull up locations that hare Wifi (both free and paid). I think there are other sites that do the same thing, but JiWire is my favorite.

I guess having all these Wifi locations is a curse too, since you literally can never leave work! I like being able to get out of the house too, though – being around people can be nice.

Anyway, I thought that today it would be kind of fun to poll everyone reading here at the BlogWorld blog – where do you  most often work when you’re not at home? Do you head to the library for some peace and quite? Do you enjoy a location like McDonald’s where you can also buy food? Is there a hidden nook in your city that has Wifi? Vote in the poll and then leave a comment with the specifics!

My answer? Definitely Panera Bread. It’s my favorite place because of the work-friendly booths and the turkey/artichoke paninis. Yum. Now that I live in the DC area, though, I’m excited to explore all of the hotspots sprinkled throughout the city – I’ll still do work from home, but it’s nice to get a change of scenery too, especially during the beautiful spring, summer, and fall months.

Your turn! vote in the poll and then explain your vote with a comment if you want!

    I’m a Panera fan too! I just wish they had more outlets 🙂 They’re building a new coffee shop here in town from the ground up, I just hope they’re wiring in an outlet to each table! Then I’ll have a new favorite.

      That’s definitely something new restaurants (especially coffee shops, sandwich shops, fast food, etc) should realize – more outlets means more business.

    I have used Wifi at Starbucks the most but I also use my Android phone as a wireless tether in the car.

      I’m a big fan of tethering too. In fact, I’m doing that right now from my new rental as I wait for my net/cable to get hooked up.

    I rarely rarely ever blog from somewhere other than my house. So if I do, it’s on vacation or at Starbucks.
