A made up infographic about working from home

Do you ever look at infographics and wonder ‘what does that even mean?!’

I do.

That’s the thing about statistics though isn’t it? You can make them show whatever you want if you just display them in the right way. It was following this train of thought last night that led to me buying the domain name madeupinfographics.com. (As you do). I thought it might be fun to just make stuff up, present it nicely and see if people still liked them as much even if they weren’t conveying any useful information. It’s basically what I do with my blog anyway, but with more charts.

The slight hitch in my plan is that until this morning I had never actually made a made up infographic, (or a regular one for that matter), but I figured it couldn’t be too hard surely?

This is my first attempt.

Would you read a blog of made up infographics?

    Somebody’s been looking over my shoulder. Mostly at cat videos.

    Brilliant. I should print this out and pin it on the fridge but that would involve too much effort.

    This is brilliant! And although I’m not a home-worker, I did stumble upon this on a day when I was working at home. It’s a sign, I tell ya!

    Sounds very familiar, now if you’ll excuse me I’m off for my pre-dinner nap 😉

    Haha that is great – honestly I have spent so much time tonight nosing around the internet (I even looked at morphsuits for a while) and yes I should have been working.. x

    I’m always on the lookout for new ways to distract myself. Perfect. Even when I go into the office (infrequently, if I can help it!) I spend much of my time flicking between tabs. It helps that I’m about the only person in the office who understands tabbed browsing is even possible (seriously, half of them shut down the internet to check their emails & vice versa)

    Brilliant, although no mention of Homes Under The Hammer, was a little disappointing!

    Brilliant! Although my favourite watch is “Storage Hunters”

    Love the fake infographic idea! Reminds me of all those alternative venn diagrams that were around a while back, but with lots more fun stuff to play with – huge potential. I’d read more, definitely!

    Loving this, I ‘may’ recognise the odd bit. But I’m reading it in the evening so that doesn’t count, right?!

    Won’t let the OH see this as he’s suggested for him doing some admin for his business – at home! Tempting :) I also have a homeworker friend who might not find this as funny 😉

    That’s hilarious, it’s missing the long lazy lunches and multitasking (filling the dishwasher while on the phone!)

    An useful memory tip for anyone needing too recall specific kinds of info, is too work
    on minimizing distractions in your surroundings.
    If you are breast feed or pregnant, consult a doctor fists.
    If you notice that the bottle does not have a list of
    ingredients, then it is best for you to stay away from
    that supplement.
