The Perks of Pro Blogging

By Daniel Scocco

You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Below you will find my old office when I used to work for a multinational company, and the new one…

Old Office – Italy

    Roberto, yeah :). When I put the feet on the top of the table it is like meditating…

  • Daniel

    Thanks. By the way just to clarify that is my parents’ house. My blogs can not afford such an office yet hehe.

    Still it is great to work from home.

  • Daniel

    Yeah, but it was because my boss was not around all day long ;).

    At least it had an airconditioner for warm days and a permanent roof over your head…

    A bottle of wine or beer and your office would be just about perfect.

    OHKAY! Now I got it. Cold drink, a laptop and a cool front swimming pool – so that is the reason why your posts are so COOL … πŸ˜‰

    WIsh I could also do something in blogging one day from which I can get something like your second pic or something more from it will also work πŸ˜€


  • Rizal

    Wow! Great! One day I want to get office like your new one.. πŸ™‚

  • Daniel

    Thanks for the nice words everyone. My online success is very modest yet (there are a lot of people out there making 10x more money).

    But I am just glad I took the decision to quit my job. The freedom I gained is priceless.

  • Tyler Ingram

    Wow that is an upgrade!

    I have a temporary office in my backyard (i’m on medical leave as my Achilles tendon heals).

    Wish I had a pool though, not that I could use it.

  • Eduardo

    envidia total, eso es lo que me provoca… y un post acerca de ello

    saludos desde Montevideo, Uruguay

    pd. escribo en español porque viendo que estudiaste en Chile, supongo entenderÑs.

  • Veron

    Argh! This is the second time I’m looking at this post, and the second time I’m leaving a comment. I am so jealous and I want to have a life like the guy in the second picture too (that’s you).

  • Noticias Automotivas

    Cool! I am a problogger too, and live here in Brazil, near you. Used to live in Mogi Mirim/SP, this year moved to Pouso Alegre/MG. Regards!

  • Daniel

    Eduardo, gracias por el post en tu blog!

    Espero que vuelvas a comentar aca.


  • Bret

    Absolutely love the contrasting pictures. I have to ask — how well can you see your laptop screen outside? Whenever I take my laptop outside I have a difficult time seeing the screen.

  • Daniel

    Bret, most of the times I work inside as well. That picture was actually taken to mock my co-workers on the company I used to work for :).

  • Joey

    Now that is Inspirational!

  • Toni

    Now how do I break down these walls…

    I love the new office!

  • Eternalsoul

    How cool! Wish I get there some day!

  • inspirationbit

    You definitely need to get a more ergonomic chair πŸ™‚ How can you work and keep out of temptation of swimming in that gorgeous pool on a sunny day?

  • TechZilo

    Wow, now that’s some problogger.

    But, tell me – how much did you earn the month you quit your job? Surely it must have been higher than your salary πŸ˜‰

  • La Blogueria

    I hate you. Sorry, I had to tell you. I hate you a lot.


  • Jason

    haha! jerk!

    just kidding, that’s funny as heck. everyone’s dream office.

    I’m a tad jealous but if you’re able to live like that after alot of hard work then no on should be hating, we should be applauding and getting to work on our own office space.


  • Dutch Schultz

    Great pics, I am the first picture but I want to be the second. I love your blog and hope it keeps going strong. At least one of us can be happy.


    When will I own a new office?

  • suresh

    The new office out look is very nice and seems like enjoying the work.
    Is that not the fact ?

  • Shelly

    This is the first time I’m posting something on DBT though I had subscribed to DBT’s RSS feed for quite long at my official email ID. But for no obvious reason, I’d not clicked the link to land to the main pages of your site. (That somehow has again validates my viewpoint that providing full posts through RSS medium actually lets a website’s readers to have a full read in their inbox, and reduces chances of bringing them to the main site. What do you think Daniel on this, BTW?)

    Today, one of your related posts round-up for May 2007 made me to click on the link to see your new working place, which in fact is quite awesome. And I go affirmative with comment no.7 for your reportedly “meditating” position.

    All in all, liked your blog design and layout. It actually had to be good… ‘coz its of someone who gives away so many worth and nice blogging tips πŸ™‚ KEEP IT UP DANIEL! I and my other freelance (u can read hobby-lance, may be) gang do cherish reading your tips, which we shall surely keep into view in our newly incorporated blog on providing simple civil engineering solutions to a common man’s everyday queries related to his/her home and office space. (We shall be happy to cater to your new office requirements too! Just kidding! πŸ˜€ )

  • Shelly

    [CORRECTION in my previous comment]
    …..(That somehow has again validated my viewpoint that providing full posts…….)

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Shelby, Feedburner already confirmed that both full and partial feeds have similar CTR, so why bother the subscribers?

    Thanks for the nice words.
