I’ve been blogging for a few months now, and I don’t think I’ve ever properly introduced myself!
My name is Briana Hernandez. I’m an entrepreneur, author, poet, lifestyle blogger and game designer. I’m currently working on two sci-fi novels and a fantasy short story, and have been published by The Ice Colony, Nail Polish Stories, and the 2019 and 2020 editions of Breakwater Literary Magazine – the student-run journal at Albertus Magnus College.
I work as a copywriter and social media manager. I take on some projects via Upwork, but I mainly work through my business, Briana Hernandez Copywriting. It’s fun being my own boss, and I get to work wherever there’s internet! It can be pretty demanding work, but it’s worth it.
I launched TV Tray Desk as a way to cope with losing my job after the lockdowns began. I had my business, sure, but it wasn’t making as much as I’d like. That loss of financial security, coupled with wrapping up my Master’s program around the same time was deeply upsetting. I needed… something to do. I had to somehow turn that negative into a positive.
Thus TV Tray Desk was born! I’ve been working remotely for a few years now, so creating a brand around the WFH/remote work lifestyle seemed like the natural topic to go for. The name pays homage to the fact that I’m usually working in my living room with a TV tray as my desk. It can be murder on the shoulder, let me tell you!
It’s fun to write about things that have affected my everyday life as a remote worker, like whether to have natural lighting or not, or ways to keep entertained after work is done. Suffice to say I’m just writing as topics come to me without a long-term goal in mind. For now I see this blog being a crash-course for those new to remote working or still struggling to adjust to working from home. With the pandemic still rampaging, a lot of us won’t be returning to in-person work for a long time. If I can just help one other remote worker with my writing, then this blog will have been worth it!
So, with much delay, nice to meet you! 🙂
