SEO Liverpool is currently between offices. Therefore I’m trying a new way of working!
Not may people know this but I love discussing with other search engine marketing consultants office situations and working patterns. I suppose I’m nosey but it can also be a very lonely business and it always helps to know your not the only one in a particular situation. Recently I’ve been working from home and decided I just couldn’t take the boredom any more.
From the posts I’ve read over the last couple of years and the conversations I’ve had, lot’s of creative types have been working a strange nomadic existence where you travel between wifi coffee shops. My favourite in Liverpool FACT (the name of the venue) where I’ve been working over the past couple of days. It’s a fantastic place, cinema / coffee shop / bar, with the added art installations that I must say are phenomenal.
SEO Liverpool seems to work really well within this environment as it has some bustle about it… I’m not one for working in total silence.
Unfortunately, I’ve come across two major problems with this system of working
1) Cost; although its much cheaper than office space what’s the etiquette for buying coffee/tea per hour so I don’t seem like some sort of hobo.
2) Toilet breaks; without wishing to be crude the copious amounts of tea, coffee and hot chocolate do take a toll. Shooting off to the loo my result in the table with the socket being taken by a fellow enthusiast.
With the latter in mind should I pack up my laptop and carry with me for the interlude? Should I strike up a conversation with the closest person and ask them to ‘keep an eye’ on the valuable tool I have? Should I only take it if I go for… a longer break.
An added dimension is I’ve already met some great creative types and even some SEO consultants, in fact (no pun intended) this place is a networking hotspot.
What is a man to do?
