After getting rather burned out at intenet marketing, I've found the motivation to get back into it and start working hard again. It has been nice collecting paychecks from my past efforts (yes, this business does run itself on auto pilot), but when you don't put time into either improving existing projects or working on new ones, you can only earn so much. One of the things I did to get motivated again was to change the setup I use at home. For about three years, I have owned a laptop, but working from a laptop isn't always the best way to go, and can be rather tedious, especially when you are toggling back and forth from one website to another. The keyboard on a laptop is also not very ideal for typing. At my regular job, I use dual monitors and it occured to me that I could probably be a lot more productive if I used multiple monitors for my work at home efforts. Well, I'm on day one, and it is already making a huge difference! You can pick up used flat screen monitors on Craigslist for about $50. What I did was place an advertisement in the "Wanted" section, and was able to pick up my first monitor from that advertisement. Then I was able to find a similar model monitor at a used computer store in my area for the other side. One thing you will need before you can use a multiple monitors is a video card, and not all computers come installed with one, although I think there are ways around this with certain set ups (if you are a computer geek, feel free to expand on how this works, since I don't know a lot about it). The other factor is getting the monitors to match. Once you have one monitor, you can place an ad in the wanted section of Craigslist for a similar model. It can help to take measurements of your screen, from left to right and from top to botton - also measure from the bottom of the stand to the top of the screen. So there you have it. If you are not already using multiple monitors, I would encourage you to start, as it really can make a difference in your productivity!
