A few years ago, I was having so much trouble with repetitive stress injuries in my hands, that I wasn’t sure what the heck I was going to do for a living (or how I was going to pay my medical bills). I started Ergoblog, Home Improvement Ideas, Fireplace Lowdown and Home Security Information (okay, and a slew of other sites) as a way of generating some revenue while working from home using voice recognition software to type. Lo and behold it worked, and today I’m earning a nice income from my sites (and my hands have gotten a lot better, so I can use the keyboard and mouse again!).
Yes, I Do Product Reviews
I’m starting to do product reviews on Ergoblog, which gets a couple hundred visitors a day who are seeking information on computer and office ergonomics as well as advice on repetitive stress injuries and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If you have a book, product, or piece of software that can help people who have RSI or who are concerned about ergonomics, I’m probably the ideal person to review it.
If you’re willing to send me one of your products, I’ll take pictures and write up a review on Ergo blog. If you have a large or expensive product, such as a computer chair or workstation and have a distributor in the Seattle/Everett area, I’m also willing to go try it out in their showroom.
