I tried to make the photo as realistic as possible, without too much tidying! Most of my blogging is done at our main computer. I do have a laptop that was bought thinking that I would use it more frequently, but I find that I need a proper place to spread out and that works better here. The computer is found in our spare room upstairs. There isn't much else in this room, a large futon sofa on the opposite wall, my reading chair in another corner. And lots and lots of Eeyores.
I admit, I quite like spending a lot of time staring at my wall of donkeys :) They really make me happy. There are also donkeys overflowing off of the windowsill in this room and piled on top of each other on two shelves on another wall! It's a collection that always brings a smile to my face. There is a window just to the left of the computer desk. The view from the window looks out onto our back garden.
And the piles of books! I'm not quite sure how N can stand coming into this room. The piles of books that you can see in the photo on top of the printer is only the beginning. Those two piles are books that have recently been delivered to the house as well as some of the books that I've recently read and have left near the computer in order to transfer some of my notes on them onto blogger drafts. There's also a pile of books near the window of books that I'd like to read next or would like to read a Friday Discussion post about. (currently that pile is of folktakes, legends and fairy tales from around the world!) On the sofa, there is usually other piles of books - my university textbooks, other pads of paper, books that I need to post out. There's always bookmarks and scraps of paper littered around.
And you may have noticed the Mtn Dew and the pack of Starburst. I'm very much a snacker when it comes to sitting here and blogging, I can't do it without some sort of munchies and a drink. I should really look into healthier options than these two, I'm sure. But there you have it.
And finally, you can see the most important book, in terms of blogging anyway, in the photo. It's my blogging notebook and it is almost always found near the computer. I couldn't live without that thing, it is absolutely indispensable. In it, I write all of my blogging ideas. I have lists there of personal posts that will show up on Wednesdays, I have lists of Discussion Friday posts and Awesome Women post ideas. I scribble To-Do lists in there and have blogging calendars up until October planned out and outlined. I'd really be lost without it :)
And that's it! I'd love to see or hear what your blogging space looks like?
