"Working at Home"

Incorrect: That man is a pompous self-righteous annoying idiot.
As it doesn’t matter which order these adjectives are in, a comma should separate them: "That man is a pompous, self-righteous, annoying idiot."

Incorrect: The sweet scintillating aroma of cinnamon buns filled the kitchen.
Because "sweet" and "scintillating" can be used in any order, there should be a comma between them.

Correct: The adorable little boy was eating ice cream.
In English, we usually put "little" and "boy" together, so the two adjectives ("adorable" and "little") do not require a comma between them.

">For some working at home is a personal choice or matter of convenience. On the other hand there are people with workforce disabling conditions and in a attempt at staying employed working at home for them sometimes becomes more a matter of necessity.  

I originally thought about writing this working at home article specifically to help those with health related job impairments. But then I realized that all types of people today are struggling to find jobs. Some may also just want the convenience of a work from home job. So finding a work at home job could be beneficial to many people not just the health impaired.

Bipolar disorder can be very debilitating. A person with bipolar disorder could find themselves unable to maintain a job in the regular workforce. That is exactly what happened to me. I will discuss the reasons why, and also discuss how finding a work at home job became a solution. I will show you how you too can find a work at home job as well.

Because of the progressive worsening of my bipolar disorder, staying employed had become a real challenge for me. Bipolar started interfering with the quality of my work, and my drive to get up and go to work. 

As a result of my bipolar, I was constantly struggling to keep up with the bills. I struggled and struggled to stay employed, so i could provide for my family.

“An” is not required in this sentence; it should be removed.

N.B.
Incorrect: When selecting courses, there are a many options to choose from.
“A” is not necessary in this sentence, and should be removed. However, should you want to refer to the specific quantity of options, the sentence can be rephrased to use the definite article “the”.

Correct: You may select courses from the many options.

The personal pronoun, “you”, should not be used in formal writing.

The sentence may be rephrased so it remains impersonal:
Correct: When 3 and 4 are added, the result should be 7.

Working at Home Works For Me:
Because of my bipolar disorder, finding a job that I could work at home, was becoming very important to my financial survival. I struggled many years to stay in a regular workforce environment. I eventually came to the end of my rope in that attempt, at the end of 2011. I realized I just could not push myself anymore.
My bipolar had progressed to the point I could not make it anymore in that structured environment. Partly, maybe even greatly the reason for this, was my failure to receive treatment for my bipolar disorder. At this point my solution was to search for a work at home job. Incorrect: Which box should this go into?
“Into” is a preposition; the sentence would be clearer if written, “Into which box should this go?”

Incorrect: When I glanced at the table, I saw the dog was hiding beneath.
While the reader gets the general idea of the sentence, the image is not entirely clear. To be more specific, we could write, “When I glanced at the table, I saw the dog was hiding beneath it”, or, perhaps, “…beneath one of the chairs.”

The introductory phrase “In my search” may require a comma after it.

Introductory phrases are clauses functioning as adverbs. Such phrases and clauses tell when, where, how, why, or under what conditions the main action of the sentence occurred. Between the introductory phrase and the main clause should be a comma. Unless the phrase is very short (less than 5 words)and begins with a preposition (" caption="Review this sentence for commas after introductory phrases." may="" etc.="etc."><="" class="Punctuation alert span782">

Incorrect: Fighting against reason Martha decided to pull an all-nighter in hopes of passing the exam.
The introductory phrase “fighting against reason” requires a comma after “reason”.

Correct: By flashlight we made our way along the path.
Because the introductory phrase “by flashlight” is short and begins with a preposition, a comma is not required.

The second sentence could be connected to the first sentence, thus avoiding beginning a sentence with a conjunction: "Many people fear crashing in an airplane, but riding in a car is actually more dangerous."

Incorrect: And when using the subjunctive, be sure to use it properly.
A sentence should not begin with a conjunction. “And” should be removed from this sentence.

N.B.
While the subject is a matter of debate, beginning a sentence with words like “however” and “on the other hand” is frequently frowned upon. It may be safer to connect the sentences with a semi-colon.

Incorrect: It makes no sense to study Advanced Pure Math, if the student will not use the math at a later date.
The dependent clause, "if a student...", does not require a comma before it.

N.B.
If the sentence is too long or confusing without a comma, one may be used for purposes of clarity.

This sentence is more convincing if written in the active voice: Scientists have demonstrated that smoking causes cancer.

N.B. The passive voice should be used in cases where the information is unknown, irrelevant, or should not be mentioned (i.e. when being subtle). It is also used when writing in an impersonal manner to avoid use of pronouns.

Correct: The bowl was broken in the scuffle.
This sentence could replace an accusative sentence, such as “She broke the bowl!”. Use of the passive voice may also put the emphasis where it is most needed:

The above list of companies are known to hire people to work from their homes. However just because a company is listed here, does not guarantee that they are hiring at the moment. Take note that a few of the work at home jobs are regional specific. Always respect the requests and requirements of each company you apply to.
Work at Home Tips:

Here are some tips if you decide to apply for one of the work at home jobs listed above.
  • Typing speed and accuracy will be a factor in a decision to hire you. So practice your typing skills prior to completing any online typing assessment.
  • Customer service professionalism and customer service problem solving skills will be tested. On all online and phone interview assessments of your customer service skills make sure to be very polite and professional in all your responses. 
  • All these work at home positions require you to be working from a designated quiet place in your home. Make sure on all your pre-hire phone interview assessments that there is no noise or interruptions in your home during the call.
  • Remember these companies are often contractors for big companies that are looking to hire people to work from home. They will be looking for professional, courteous and customer friendly people.
  • Most of these work from home jobs will require you to have a dedicated hardwired phone line (one you only use for work, no personal use), maybe a phone headset (if you do phone work).  Cell phones, skype, voip services and cordless phones are usually unacceptable.
  • These work at home jobs will most likely require your internet cable or dsl connection to be directly connected into your computer or directly from the modem to the computer. Wireless internet connections are less reliable, usually slower and more susceptible to connection problems.

While the reader gets the general idea of the sentence, the image is not entirely clear. To be more specific, we could write, “When I glanced at the table, I saw the dog was hiding beneath it”, or, perhaps, “…beneath one of the chairs.”

Incorrect: I like many authors. Shakespeare, Stephen King and Charles Dickens.
The second sentence is a fragment because it is missing a verb. It can be connected to the main clause by putting “such as” in between the sentences, by putting a colon between the two sentences, or by adding a verb to the second clause:
Correct: I like many authors: Shakespeare, Stephen King, and Charles Dickens.

Incorrect: Big mess all over the room.
This is a sentence fragment because it does not have a verb. The sentence could be written: "There was a big mess all over the room."

Consider re-wording your sentence or connecting the fragment to a main clause. Possibly, a comma is missing, perhaps after an introductory word or phrase.

Correct: I like many authors such as Shakespeare, Stephen King, and Charles Dickens.
Correct: I like many authors: Shakespeare, Stephen King, and Charles Dickens.

What a terrible feeling it gave me when I failed, and as a result, my bills were not Incorrect: Rules are often broken by rebellious teenagers.
Grammatically, this sentence is correct; however, it is more forceful to use the active voice: Rebellious teenagers often break rules.

Incorrect: It has been demonstrated by scientists that smoking causes cancer.
This sentence is more convincing if written in the active voice: Scientists have demonstrated that smoking causes cancer.

N.B. The passive voice should be used in cases where the information is unknown, irrelevant, or should not be mentioned (i.e. when being subtle). It is also used when writing in an impersonal manner to avoid use of pronouns.

Correct: The bowl was broken in the scuffle.
This sentence could replace an accusative sentence, such as “She broke the bowl!”. Use of the passive voice may also put the emphasis where it is most needed:

Correct: It is thought that Shakespeare may have been a group of writers rather than a single author.

The personal pronoun, “you”, should not be used in formal writing.

The sentence may be rephrased so it remains impersonal:
Correct: When 3 and 4 are added, the result should be 7.

Alternatively, “you” may be replaced with “one”:
Correct: When one adds 3 and 4, one should get 7.

Incorrect: I believe this point of view is correct.
When one is permitted to express and opinion (only in personal or opinion essays), the use of “I” is still considered too informal; it may be replaced with “this writer” or “this author”.

The infinitive verb “to see” has been separated by “very much”. The sentence could be written, “I wanted, very much, to see the new documentary on Iraq.”

The infinitive verb “to set foot” has been separated by “never”. The sentence could be written “The old woman instructed the teenagers never to set foot on her grass again.”

" grammarpoint="Infinitive verb split by modifier." patterndate="1352453043000" pid="4799438" sentence="Despite my mental illness, I'm able to still keep a job." shortdescription="

The infinitive verb “to ” has been split by the modifier “still”. Please ensure the split infinitive does not confuse the meaning or flow of your sentence.

Incorrect: I wanted to very much see the new documentary on Iraq.
Correct: I wanted, very much, to see the new documentary on Iraq.

">keep a job.

Ensure the introductory phrase is properly punctuated; a comma may or may not be required.

An introductory phrase is like a clause, but it does not have its own subject and verb; it relies on the subject and verb in the main clause. Unless the phrase is very short (less than 5 words) and begins with a preposition (" be="" etc.="etc."><="" "at",="">

Incorrect: Fighting against reason Martha decided to pull an all-nighter in hopes of passing the exam.
The introductory phrase “fighting against reason” requires a comma after “reason”.

Correct: By flashlight we made our way along the path.
Because the introductory phrase “by flashlight” is short and begins with a preposition, a comma is not required.

">Yes I suffer, with the mental illness bipolar, and deal with the many challenges that bipolar has brought upon my life. But so far, despite my mental health, I'm still able to stay employed by working at home. 
I am very thankful for that.
I am very happy to say, working at home has at least created some financial stability for my family. So although, I am not getting rich working from home. This is a real job, with a real weekly check that keeps my bills paid. What a load off my shoulders it has been.

But there are many more challenges that a person living with bipolar often has to face. People with bipolar have the challenge of finding the right treatment that works for them. They often have the challenge of applying for and getting approval for social security disability.
People with bipolar disorder also have the challenge of dealing with unfair stigma against them, insomnia, and dealing with an increased risk of suicidal tendencies. Life with bipolar disorder is a life full of challenges.
Living with bipolar sometimes feels like I am in a war against myself. Living with bipolar disorder can sometimes be like not living at all. Life with bipolar disorder is extremely challenging. But never give up!
