Where I Blog

I have a bazillion blogs that I read.  I try to get to most of them daily.  I have a few design and style blogs that I read.  I’ve seen many of them write about where they blog and what inspires them.  They have pictures of beautiful spaces, with their offices perfectly organized, and color coordinated, but not too coordinated.

I look around and think, “Why don’t I have these serene place to work on my blog?” Because, I’m in reality.   My reality is finding a time and place to blog when I get it.  We have an office in our house with built-ins and everything. But my husband’s computer (a PC) is hogging up that space.  I’m usually at the kitchen table, on a table in the family room, or perched between the blankets in our bedroom.

Oh, and sometimes, I’m hiding out at places that offer free wifi.  You never know where I might be found blogging.

Here are some photos of my blogging spaces:

Blogging at the Kitchen Table

My kitchen table.  I sit here mostly, because I can dump everything out on our table.  I’m able to pay bills, organize paperwork, and sometimes, yes, I eat while blogging.

Blogging From The Office

Do you like my double stacking computers? Actually triple stacked if you count my iPhone.  I was using Angry Husband’s PC (A Dell) to view a show on Hulu.  Yep, I was using it as a video player.  I barely use PC’s anymore, and my husband has all kinds of things on there that I don’t know how, or want to learn how to use.

Blogging From Bed

My laptop desk for my bed, was actually a shelf that we used to have in the garage.  It is a piece of melamine.  I loathe the touchpad on my Macbook. It frustrates me, mostly when trying to edit pictures.  I usually prop up pillow under the shelf when blogging to get the right height.  I was sorting laundry, and watching Bethenny Gets Married earlier today.

I should probably get a proper desk for the bedroom….now to find the perfect one.

So the big question now is, where do you blog?

Most of the time I blog from my desk at work. If not there then I do it at our computer at home! I'm boring. I don't have a laptop that works for anything other than playing DVD's :-)

I mainly blog at my desk, which is somewhat 'unorganized' at the moment. I have a 26" iMac, my Mac laptop, an iPad and my iPhone. I'm a lost cause! It also has stacks of papers (in several places), a landline (so I can get robo calls, wrong numbers and my grandma), a cup for which to store all the free pens I get at conferences, and of course 2 mice. I, like you, do not care for the mac touchpad most of the time. There is also random randomness on the desk and almost always a few ponies. You remember the ponies, dontcha? When not blogging at the desk, I'm on the couch pretending to watch TV. In the past 8 months that's probably about 10 times. I need to expand my TV watching! Paradise is what I shall call my space. And maybe one day someone will start fanning me and bringing me drinks.

I like that you left the clothes on the bed, it's honest! I like all your spaces, it allows you to be in the moment when blogging.

Haha. And a mighty fine table it is. My hubs is always annoyed that I hog the office space. Role reversal here.

when i blog in bed, i use a breakfast tray. the kind with folding legs. you know, the kind that should be piled high lots of yummy stuffed french toast and a french vanilla latte with a splash of caramel and whipped cream. actually, i don't think i have ever eaten food from that tray.

I blog all over the house too. Most of the time I am in the big leather recliner. It's so comfy for my visits with bloggy friends.
