W O R K S P A C E: Where I Blog


I know. It's really, really bad that I have a full house to spread myself about in and could easily turn my spare bedroom in to some kind of blogging office/studio, yet still use my bed as my main blogging area instead. My reasoning is quite simple though. I spend Monday to Friday at a desk, at work, writing on a laptop. So when I do something which is my recreational hobby, at home, I want to do it in the most comfortable place possible. Which just so happens to be in my bed. 

Yep, I take my laptop to bed with me, crack out my iPad for some background music on Spotify and get typing. I tend to update my blog about 2-3 times per week, which makes this practice of working from my bad supposedly quite bothersome for good nights sleep. Although despite everything the internet tells me about taking technology to bad troublesome for sleep, I've never really had any issues drifting off. It just seems that when I get in to bed I need to do a massive brain dump somewhere, and the internet is my place to do it. When I was at college and uni I used to always have a notepad and pen by my bed so I could write down any thoughts or ideas I had when I got in to bed, but nowadays a laptop is just so much easier. And the bonus is that I can actually read what I've written the next day too.

I have tried to set up a desk/workspace before, but I never really stick to it. I hate sitting at a chair and having my laptop on the table when I'm writing for my blog. I like to be on my bed with my beauty bits to hand to look at when I'm writing about them. It just works better for me that way! The only distraction I tend to find is when the cat really, really wants to sit on my lap. I suppose that doesn't get in the way when sitting at a desk on my laptop. But in bed, it can be quite the obstacle! 

Where is your best or favourite place to blog?

  1. I sit on my sofa with my laptop on a cushion, lots of cushions around me, nice and comfy, I can take my time and pop my laptop down at the side of me when I want and just do my own thing, I couldn't sit at a desk and blog it just wouldn't feel right, blogging in bed sounds good to me too, I might give it a try xxx

  2. My bed! I try to be more profesh and blog from my kitchen table but I get so uncomfy on the chairs! Either that or create a comfy space on the sofa with Disney movies and a helluva lot of snacks n tea! I know what you mean about differentiating from normal office work - so nice to be able to work from bed! Immy x

  3. I'm the same as you, why would I want to spend 8+ hours at a desk at work to come home and do it again? It has to be my bed though, I cannot concentrate if I sit in my living room!
