Co-Working Space

Mentioned recently on Freelance Switch, Co-working is something I think about more and more as it gets closer to the due date of my first child. I live in a smallish city of only 35,000 people, but I realize the benefits that a small co-working space can offer me, if I am able to find a reasonable one.

Co-working space would allow me a small room, usually shared by others to get away from the distractions at home and get some work done. This space is dedicated to getting work done, and as such is better than sitting at a local Starbucks (of which there are none here), or the food court of the mall (where I am writing this now without WiFi).

Has anyone else tried co-working? I would love to find someone with some reviews of the idea before I continue moving forward on it.

I have a feeling that if I want to use a co-working space, I will have to be the person to set it up, find other freelancers and manage the whole endeavour, but sitting at home, despite currently having a bed room as an office, just isn’t enough separation between work and home life.
