What makes working from home these days such a great idea?
I think that not having to drive to work, considering the gas prices (again) going up, not having to drive in inclement weather, not having to deal with office politics, the freedom to hang out in your pjs if you choose to.....snack when you want...take a break and go for a walk on a nice day...the freedom to take the computer and work out on the patio or deck in the fresh air....no interuptions...the list goes on. I would LOVE to be able to work from home!!
The lack of the commute is definitely one of the high points for me right now. For those who have kids, it can be great for schedule flexibility. I think that it's important to find ways to communicate with people in your field to avoid too much isolation. HubPages can be a great network for this!
Basically, the freedom of being able to manage your own time, and not having some obnoxious boss or supervisor do it for you.
What makes it a great idea is the reoccuring anti-social behavior of people these days. We are relying to much on the internet and technology. People lose their social skills and suddenly working at home, alone, in a quiet(or loud) familiar space is very inviting.
No commuting to work, home for the children, manage your time to suit the workload and reduce office costs.

For the parents, it helps keep an eye on the children apart from other advantages
Look at it this way, you dont have to dress for work, well at least from waist below. Eat your breakfast while you look about the days business. You don have to get stuck in traffic and it's great for parents with wee children. Go to the restroom as many times as you please, no one is going to give you the stares. You actually get a lot done, save a lot of time on travelling to and from work. I can go one but you get my point, i hope.
For me the appeal is that is that my labor is making myself rich (theoretically) not someone else. Whenever I work for a business or organization I just cannot shake the knowledge that I am taking home a very small percentage of what I have produced. It might be a bit selfish but I do not like higher ups profiting from my labor. Plus the bathrooms are nicer.
My main reason is to be able to take care of my three children at home. The other reasons are saving time and gas, flexible hours, wear whatever I want to wear and no need to see the face of an angry boss, ha ha ha...
Working from home is appealing to me because: (1) it offers the flexibility of managing my own time while (2) affording me the privilege to do what I love to do from the comfort of my home.
Even though I currently am not working full time from home for pay; I love the possibility of working full time from home one day soon. Ideally I would continue to write from home, continue spending quality time in fellowship daily with Jesus, and become an online math instructor.
Corporate Zombies controlled from satellite mass media memes on the highways is enough for anyone not infected with the American zombie virus to consider just staying home.
I'm scared that were I to get out on the roadways...I might start believing stupid things....like the war on "terror" being more than what it is...a plan to break the Muslim world in order to force a global system of government.
Hell, it could be even worse out there....one might get so delusional that they think the noise on the radio is "music."
Outside of the fact you have quiet, you also have the things around you that support creative thinking and writing.
