Ergoblog is a personal blog focusing on “Office ergonomics, reviews, voice recognition software, and dealing with repetitive strain injuries.” Here’s what the site’s author says about Ergoblog:
A few years ago, I was having so much trouble with repetitive stress injuries in my hands, that I wasn’t sure what the heck I was going to do for a living (or how I was going to pay my medical bills). I started Ergoblog [and some other sites] as a way of generating some revenue while working from home using voice recognition software to type. Lo and behold it worked, and today I’m earning a nice income from my sites (and my hands have gotten a lot better, so I can use the keyboard and mouse again!).
Ergoblog features RSI tips and commentary, as well as reviews of RSI-related products and publications.
