For us writers, (and others who work from home) it’s a little bit of both. And hopefully, since we often rely on the Internet, we always hope that our ‘nets are working.

It’s December, a new month, and that means posting our goals in the JHS forum at Absolute Write. We help each other, encourage each other offer support. It’s more than just another forum…we really do network, but in ways that is beyond just talking about your work or promoting your products and services.  My goals this month are to finish some articles due in December and continue work on theWAHMmagazine, which launches January 5, 2008.

November was very much about networking for me. Joining various groups like Ryze, Linked In, Facebook and the Mom Blog network and presenting at Business and Learning’s WAH Expo. (Every Tuesday night we have a networking chat at 9 p.m.)  Out of one of the presentations at the WAH Expo by Jen Gniadecki of Marketing Curve, I got to participate in a group call about marketing and promotion. Jen is great, and I highly recommend her!  And, I am really excited about a new radio show called WAHF Talk Radio(work-at-home-family that is). It is a new show for the work-at-home parenting community run/hosted by Sandra Weber and her husband, and I think it’s going to be great resource not only for those already in the WAH world, but who are thinking about becoming WAH parents. 

 When you work-from-home, the ‘net becomes your water cooler and break room. It’s where you find leads, generate leads and make those professional (and sometimes personal even) connections that are so important to business and well, life in general.

If you have monthly (or some other time increment) goals, make one of your year-end goals to make your net work for you and start or improve your networking, even if you make just one connection, it will probably be well worth it.
