Free from 9 to 5 is an interesting new blog to check out.
From the about page:
If someone told me 10 years ago, when I was in college, that I would be working for one of Southern California’s largest employers, doing software development and being paid handsomely to boot, I’d be ecstatic. Well, I am working for that employer now, doing software development and being paid very well, but I’m far from ecstatic. In fact, I don’t want this anymore. I don’t want a daily 2 hour round trip commute. I don’t want to spend 8-10 hours a day stuck in a cubicle. I don’t want to deal with office politics.
Now, I want to work for myself. I want to work where I want, when I want. I don’t mind working more than 40 hours a week, but I want to set my own schedule. The Internet makes all this within reach. I just need to go out and do it. This is easier said than done though. As I struggle with this, I hope to explore what others are doing and how they’re doing it here. I hope you will find it informative and maybe even helpful if you are striving towards the same goal.
