When you work online, sometimes it feels like you’re in something of a vacuum. Without coworkers to bounce ideas off of and share the struggles (and triumphs) of the work day, it’s easy to start to feel a bit isolated from time to time. Even if you work online as part of a team, you may still find yourself missing that social connection that on-site working affords. To fill the gap, online blogging can help connect you with workers in similar positions as yourself. By reading blogs about other online workers’, you get that “gathering around the water bubbler” experience – except it’s a virtual water bubbler, and it’s actually a blog! Let’s take a look at ten blogs online workers should add to their internet rounds.
