Since getting pregnant, I have long since said goodbye to the corporate world and embraced the full-time housewife/mother role. I didn't realize I would be bored out of my wits so I did some research and found out ways on how I can still work from the comforts of home.
I have done freelance article writing, provided online support for a gaming site and did online research for a travel site. All these temporary jobs were great in ridding me of my boredom and having my brains do their job.
However, I admit that it is a bit hard to work at home without the accessibility that comes with working in an office. A quiet environment (mine comes with constant screaming from a fifteen month old toddler), some office supplies and a good working area fit for, well, work.
My desktop computer at home shares the table space with some picture frames, the remote controls for the airconditioner, tv and dvd player, a few milk bottles and a milk dispenser. Now, tell me how can one work efficiently with an area such as mine?
It's a good thing that Contest Factory is running a contest aptly named Pimp My Cube Contest
They are searching for not just the bad but the worst looking office or cubicle that makes it unsuitable for work. I only have to upload a video showing my work area and explain why my "office" deserves to be pimped up.
The contest has a total grand prize value of approximately $1200.
Prize is to update your office/workspace/cube with one of three prize packages:
- New high end computer system
- New Desk, Chair and Decorations
- New Entertainment Package with high end stereo, espresso machine etc.
A second sweepstakes prize of a $200 gift card will be awarded to the registered user chosen by random drawing at the end of the contest period.
Watch this contest video to know more:
The contest period is from 12/5/11 at 12:00PM to 1/31/12 at 12:00PM.
So, what are you waiting for? Let's all register, upload our videos and have everybody we know vote for our videos so we can have more chances of winning a new, pimped up work space!
