After weeks of working out of my home office, I thought it would be nice to get out and work from an internet cafe. So I toted my computer to the local coffee shop, bought my iced mocha, and set myself up to write and work on some other projects.
I think I like my home office better!
The table my computer is sitting on rocks back and forth as I type. Plus it is just a little sticky. There are a lot of flies here, and they keep landing on me, which makes it hard to focus on my writing.
Sitting at a table across from me is an old guy. He has been sleeping ever since I got here, at least I hope he is just sleeping! I would hate to think that I was typing away across from someone who had passed on.
But the worst is the guy sitting behind me. He hasn’t bought anything and he doesn’t have a computer. He isn’t reading or doing anything like that. He is just sitting. It feels like he is watching me. I hope I am wrong.
I have read from many bloggers that they like to go to public places to write their blog posts. That it helps to have a change of scenery. They like people watching and the goings on around them inspires creative blog posts.
I think I may be just the opposite. Between the flies and creepy people, I think I am happier in my own private little room. Looking out the window at my trees, on a desk that doesn’t rock. What about you? Where do you like to write from?
If you like watching courtroom TV, you might enjoy working from home as an eJuror. The United States is a country where anyone can sue anybody, anytime, for just about any reason. Attorneys will use mock juries to help them determine various issues that may come up in court. With a mock jury an attorney can test out their arguments before they get to court, they can determine a settlement amount, and they can get a feel for what the average person thinks about their case.
Working as an eJuror you will be asked to review cases from your local area. You will read a summary of the facts of the case, arguments from both perspectives, and then you will answer questions about the case and what went into the decisions you made.
There are a few sites where you can sign up to be an eJuror. All require that you be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen. You will be asked to provide demographic information about yourself, and agree to standard terms and conditions. According to the websites, cases will take around an hour to read the summaries and answer all the questions.
Trial Practices, Inc. says they pay $10 per hour to their eJurors. There site does not have much information for potential jurors, just a sign up page.
Online Verdict.com has an informative site that says they pay $20 – $60 per case, depending on the amount of time required. They pay monthly by check.
eJury.com pays $5 to $10 per case and pays by PayPal. They have a very informative site, and include sample cases. The sample cases are a nice way to preview what you will be doing.
Unless you were able to take on many cases per day, I don’t think you could make a living as an eJuror. But it is an online opportunity where you could make a decent amount of money per hour, working from home with a flexible schedule.
