    Slack is good if you want to communicate with a team.

    I read your "How to Stay Productive and Disciplined When Working Remotely" article.

    I'm wondering why you said, "A few years ago, if someone talked about working from home for some reason, the idea would have been strongly ridiculed."

    Why would they be strongly ridiculed? I've always worked from home. My sister, who works for the Sports Council of Wales, often worked from home before Covid. My stepfather was an accountant - he worked from a home office for over 20 years. Many of his clients worked from a home-base, whether they were plumbers, child-minders, or mobile hairdressers.

    It's just an odd thing to say.

      I have always worked from home too, and see nothing odd about it.
      Remote work? All you need is a good horse and a comfortable saddle.

      I understand your point. But In India, it's a growing trend.

        To ridicule the idea of working from home?

        HubPages isn't an India-centric site. It's American.

          Just did some quick analysis and on some niche sites, 10% of the traffic is from India. I wouldn't be as quick to ridicule the idea of writing some articles for an Indian audience.

          On owlcation for example traffic from India is 25% of that from the US according to SEMrush statistics.

          HP caters to English search terms across the globe. This is seen on the source code: <html id="phx-wrapper" lang="en"> and not <html id="phx-wrapper" lang="en-us">. Google uses this info to know which locale to target with your content.

            But surely Hubpages is a local site for local people?

              lobobrandonposted 9 months agoin reply to this

              Haha, it isn't local and that's why the way this person wrote it would not be helpful to the majority of the audience. Articles written here need to be written for an international audience. When writing about something local it's a different story.

            Of course not, it would be a good idea to focus on Indian/Asian topics. And many do it very well.

            But if it's a general article, like the one in question, the writer must ensure they don't make wild assumptions, based on their own perceptions. It turns people off if their own experience is 'ridiculed'.

              I wasn't responding to the article in question, the feedback on this thread points out a few of its flaws.

              I was merely emphasizing that writing on topics that are not US-centric is allowed and they can actually do well. If everything else was well written, the author could easily change the way he writes it to include the phrase that until recently the idea was ridiculed in certain regions of India.

              Some people would find this information interesting, albeit weird while continuing to read the article instead of assuming its rubbish because of the blanket statement.

              I was merely trying to point out that there's a way to get a message across to an international audience and since the author is new I wanted to point out that if he so chooses he could, of course, write about regional topics and it is not uncommon on HP.

                And I was agreeing with you. And said almost exactly the same thing in a slightly different way big_smile

                  Yup, I know. I was clarifying that my original comment had nothing to do with the article in question smile

    I was also working remotely before COVID, I recommend having a cute dogs, comfortable slippers, and meeting free days once a week.  But that's just me.  The team/content management software, if any, is going to be largely selected your workplace so IMHO not much point dwelling on it
