How to Block Distracting Websites While you Work

By Anton D. Nagy July 2, 2021, 5:00 am

As the workforce shifts to a more work-from-home structure, many people are finding themselves in the privacy of their own environment. With this type of freedom comes the opportunity for distraction. When you’re working from home, it’s easy to open a new tab and start browsing social media, without even thinking about it. It’s almost instinctive to do this, even when you’re in the middle of a project. The next thing you know, an hour of time has passed and you’re behind on your work.

The solution to these types of distractions is to block websites that are taking time away from your work. BlockSite is a Chrome extension that lets users block specific types of websites while you’re working.
