Impromptu Invitation: Where Do You Blog?

August 27, 2010

Did you know that the average person spends 13 hours online every week?   The average person, not blogger.  13 hours online is an extremely low figure if you do happen to be a blogger.  I imagine most full time bloggers spend three to four times that amount online each week, perhaps more.  Why do I mention this ?

Because just like where you sleep, where you spend a healthy amount of hours staring at a computer screen is a reflection of who you are.   Yesterday, I tweeted a question:  who is interested in a “Where Do You Blog?” linky party where you show your little nook or corner of your home or office?   Plenty of peeps replied “Me!”

I find this question fascinating, because we are all so different, we have various lifestyles, and yet we all have a certain place we’ve reserved where we connect online with each other.

Where do you sit down in front of a screen to connect with of the rest of the world?

So here is the challenge for the weekend:

Linky Party on Monday August 30th !

 

Have you carved out a little space to call your own ?  Perhaps you dream of a perfect closet space like this one from Country Living.

 

Perhaps you’ve styled an amazing space you’d love to share!  Or perhaps you simply belly up to the dining room table with a hot cup of tea.  Great !  Cause guess what?  I’ll let you in on a little secret.  As much as I love my home office, and even though I spend most daytime hours and late night hours writing in this space . . .

. . .  when the kids are home from school I find it works much better for me to plug in my laptop on the kitchen island.   It’s the one place I can prep dinner, check emails, monitor homework, raise my eyebrows at any child attempting to raid the pantry, and play referee during TV hour.

What about you?   If you’re a busy multitasking mom, where do you steal a little time online?  If you’re a career gal, how have you personalized your office space?  If you’re a part time or full time blogger, what are your tips for a comfortable workspace ?

Snap a photo and tell us your story !

Tell us not only where you blog, but why  you blog in that place.  What makes your space special to you?   What would you improve?   If you hate it, what are your plans for improvement? If you love it, why?

I’ll put the linky party on Sunday night for everyone to link up their little office nook, large, or small, simple or grand.    If you’re not a blogger, feel free to post a picture of your workspace on my Facebook Fan Page, I’d love to see it !

Sound like fun ? 

I’ll post the linky party Sunday evening.

A very sweet giveaway coming later today . . . here’s a clue: she’s a character from Charlotte’s Web.  Intrigued ?  Stay tuned !

    xo,

  3. Andrea Howe says:

    This is going to be fun! thanks for starting this

  4. Shelle says:

    Sounds fun! Count me in. Now to clean up my space and get some pictures. :)

  5. Yuliya says:

    Cannot participate, you would all be horrified at the mess I blog from! Really, most of the time I blog from bed after I nurse my babe down for her naps…so I look forward to all the lovely inspiration for the day she’s a bit more independent.

  6. MariS says:

    I’m in!!! It will force me to clean my studio, which right now, is almost on the same level as my teen daughter’s b’room. Almost! Hugs

  7. Oh fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone posts. I’m gonna be a party pooper on this one, I’m ordering a few things for my office and they won’t be in yet, but that’s alright! I’m hoping to get some much needed inspiration from everyone!

  8. Girl, I have got the eye-brow raise down to a science! I guess I’ll have to age gracefully because I wouldn’t be able to intimidate my kids if my forehead was full of Botox! :)

    Oh, and my ‘home office’ consists of piles of crud taken out of my son’s room from his makeover!! That room is on THE LIST.

    xoxo, cassie

  9. Heather says:

    13 hours? I feel like a could do that in a day. I seriously feel like my laptop is a part of me – I am lost without it.

  10. Katie says:

    Does sound like fun … if only my space looked like those in the photos! ;)

  11. Your timing is amazing. I was just plotting moving my home office to a huge closet that we only use for storage. However, you’ll be seeing my present office space; I already promised my readers an impossible amount of projects in my Sneak Peek.

    …or I could pull the post down and hope no one saw it…

  12. Ohhhh ho ho you beat me to it! I’ll be here! :) I’d like to see everyone’s blogging area too!

    Donna

  13. oh yeah… I’m sooooo here for this!

  14. I’ll totally play along in this :D

    I have 2 spaces………

  15. Lindsay @ hlsd says:

    Oooh sounds cool! I’m more interested in other peoples places but I’ll link up!! :) Cool! Thanks!

  16. This sounds great, Kate! My blogging space is incredibly boring and uninspired, but maybe I’ll get a few ideas from friends who stop by to read my post. :) Fun party idea!

  17. this is such a fun way to get to know each other
    a tiny bit better. i can’t wait to see everyone’s
    blogging spot.

  18. Eric says:

    I just re-did my blogging space, what a great topic! And as for 13 hours/week no way! I do that 4-5x a week :)

  19. Only 13 hours a week? Oh, my. I’m on the computer a lot more than that, I’m afraid (and I rationalize it by saying, “But it’s my job!”). Fun idea for a party!

  20. Paige says:

    13 hours a week seems low. Although, I have a day job that allows me lots of computer playtime, so I’m not a very good barometer of what’s normal.

  21. Sue says:

    Where I blog will be such a disappointment I’m afraid!

  22. OMG !! I love the picture of Country Living !
    I look forward to see other spaces :)
    I’m in !

  23. Julie M. says:

    Oh, that will be fun to see!

    Have a beautiful weekend!

    : )

  24. I wish I could play. I blog from work sometimes and I work in a film production studio and we are forbidden from taking any pics inside the studio. Oh well :)

  25. Cathy says:

    Oh, I can’t wait! Hopefully we’ll have our home office redo just about done by then too! ;) Trip to Ikea planned for tomorrow! Woohoo!

  26. I’m so excited for this! I just started blogging, so I’m still kind of creating a routine. Thanks for posting this! PS – Love that Country Living picture :-)

    My aunt and favorite blogger Roberta from Con-tain-it (http://con-tain-it.typepad.com) just sent me an e-mail directing me over to you and I’m so happy she did! I really enjoyed exploring your blog and I’m super excited to participate in the ‘Where do you blog’ link party!

  28. Lynda says:

    This sounds like a wonderful & engaing idea! Although it’s our home office – the hubs refers to it as ‘my hole’… lol. In process of tweaking, and making do with what we have, but I’d love to share & join in on the party!

    Thanks for hosting (and for popping by & now following my blog – I greatly appreciate it.)

    :D Lynda
