Where Do You Blog? Party

August 29, 2010

Hi all, how was your weekend ?  Ours was go go go, but we accomplished a lot.  We had a successful yard sale (I made $480 ~ yes!) plus I cleaned out my garage in anticipation of a huge project I’m planning, plus kept five children (including my own, and my nephews and niece) fed, clean, and entertained.  Whew !  Busy busy.

So . . . . last week I had a spontaneous idea to have a ‘Where Do You Blog? Party ~ I hope there are some of you who are ready to link up your spaces !

As for me, I spend most of my morning and weekend blogging hours in my home office, but when the kids are home from school, many afternoons I plug in at the island in our kitchen in order to check emails and keep an eye on all the activity in our home, plus prep dinner and check on homework progress.  Yes, I move back and forth, but it works for me !

What about you?  Where do you put in most of your blogging hours?  At the kitchen table?  In a home office ?  Have you claimed a desk, closet, or room and styled it with your favorite things?  If you work outside the home, how is your office space organized?

What corner of your world have you dedicated to spending time online?

Link party will be up through the end of Wednesday Sept 1st.

Go ahead and link up your space for all to see !

Link up your space to this party showcasing bloggers’ unique spaces where they log their online hours.

  1. I think this is such a fun idea for a blog party and can’t wait to see the spaces everyone works in. I wish I’d had some time to spruce mine up a bit before inviting everyone in to see it but decided to just go ahead and show it, rumpled curtains and all. Ha.

    I love your home office, Kate! So pretty and stylish. Thanks for hosting the party! :-)

  2. This is a great idea! I love seeing where everyone blogs. I wonder if there are any coffee shop bloggers?!

  3. [...] out the “Where do you blog party?” today at Centsational Girl! Like what you read? Print, email or share [...]

  4. Fun to see where people blog, wish I had a fancy schmancy office to show off but alas, I am a family room blogger :-) Thanks for hosting!

  5. Susan says:

    Kate…what a great idea for a party! Looking forward to seeing all the places where the “magic” happens. :) Your office if fabulous…beautiful and functional! Sounds like your garage sale was a huge success!

  6. i agree with everyone else! great idea for a party.
    this is my first time to ever link up with you, love that you have an am & pm office.

    i have an am & pm as well.

    have a lovely week.

  7. A fun event!

    I move around, a tad. One of the places is the kitchen island and another is a comfy chair in the hearth room. However, my pretty place to blog is the one I linked.

    Thanks so much for hosting!

  8. Paula says:

    Thanks for hosting the party! I think I’d enjoy blogging in either of your pretty spaces.

  9. Thanks for hosting, Kate!! It’s fun to see where we all are when we are “talking”.

  10. Eric says:

    I actually just re-did my blogging room. Thanks for allowing us all to share!

  11. This is such a great idea! I linked a post, and now I’m going to go visit the rest of the participants. I look forward to seeing what else I can find on your blog to ooh and aah about.

  12. You are super mom, girl! You deserve to spend that $480 on whatever you want. ;) Oh, how I love your home office…but your kitchen is pretty fabulous too. Thanks for hosting such a fun party. :)

  13. Fun part-ay! I’ve been thinking about sharing my new space (in our new house) and now I’ve got some motivation!

  14. [...] I’m joining in the fun with Centsational Girl and her Where Do You Blog Party.  Come link up [...]

  15. Christine says:

    Thanks for having this party! It is so great to wander around and get inspired by all of the talented people out there. It’s so interesting to see the rooms where their ideas are crafted.

  16. sara says:

    Kate,
    I just added my kitchen to this wonderful list of bloggers. ‘Cause ya know, that’s where it happens for me. I love your blog and am soooo thankful to have met you in person at Blissdom. Thanks for constant inspiration!
    xo,
    edie

  21. I’m with Melissa….dining room table blogger, but I SO wish I had a post ready to show you all. Such fun to see where everyone hangs out online. :)

  22. Aly says:

    Thanks for doing this! So much fun. To answer your question… The paint color on alittlegreat.com is Myth Gray by Kwal Howell. I love it too! Thanks

  23. Leanne says:

    What a fun party. I love taking a peek into everyone’s blogging areas. Yours is gorgeous, BTW.

  24. [...] is hosting a party over at Centsational Girl today, and everyone is showing the space they do their blogging in. I thought it sounded like fun [...]

  25. L.Duncan says:

    Great party! I finally got around to linking up!

    With an office and a kitchen like yours, I’d blog in both spaces too!

  26. Kate, such a great idea for a party! I love seeing all the great spaces everyone has created for their offices. I know I sure do enjoy my own little office nook. Thanks!

  27. deidra says:

    Cool idea! If I get brave, I’ll post my mess of a desk. It could be titled Where Not To Blog.

  28. What a great idea for a party! I’m looking forward to checking out where everyone else blogs from. Most of the time I blog from my family room couch, looking out the patio doors to our yard. It’s informal, but the scenery is great inspiration!

    Congrats on your successful garage sale, wooo hoo! ;)

  29. Thanks so much for hosting Kate! So much fun to see all the different, and beautiful spaces! It’s fun to see real point of inspiration. I just added my couch, aka Blog Central. Nothing special but seriously functional when I have to keep track of 3 kiddos running through the casa!

  30. Christine says:

    Don’t you just love the versatility that laptops and wireless routers bring us? Great spaces!…Christine

    I kinda blog in spurts – often, I do first drafts or just jot down bits & pieces at work (in Google Docs) then later I refine and tinker with the drafts at home and finally paste the text over into the WordPress editor. I’ve been really busy with our move until lately, but I’m starting to get my blogging mojo back on track.

    Anyway, we’re in the midst of reworking our home office with better, more traditional furniture, but here’s what it looked like when we re-did it a few years back:

    http://www.2dolphins.com/homeoffice.html

    Our new house has a larger bedroom that we’ve converted into our new home office, so we’ll be able to fit in larger desks and more storage options. I really like the looks of the Kathy Ireland Tribeca Loft writing desk ( http://www.martinfurniture.com/collections/files_collections/locations/TL/TL384R.jpg ) but can’t stomach the price.

  32. This is so fun! What a great idea!

  33. Sonny says:

    Hi Kate.
    what a lovely office you have.. This was such a great idea for a party and I enjoyed participating and looking at your other posters blogging spaces..

  34. cute idea. i just moved so i blog where ever i can find a space. your house rocks!

  35. Just LOVE this party! I feel like I’ve been on a little office tour all morning!

  36. This is such a fun idea! I can’t wait to see where everybody gets their ideas!

  37. Cortney Lyon says:

    I’m having a little trouble linking. I click on the link tool but the “next step” button doesn’t show up. I had my post done at midnight last night, but couldn’t link then either. Can you help me? Here is my link.

    Thanks!

  38. Sue says:

    I am amazed at how many people actually sit at a desk to be on the computer. I’m always either in my chair with my feet up, sitting on my bed or on the deck sitting on a patio chair. I am the lazy blogger.

  39. I love your home office! So fresh and clean! Thanks for hosting a fun party, I found you via Amanda @ Serenity Now’s submission.

  40. paula says:

    Such a nice idea. Count on me.

  41. Thank you for hosting a fun party! I love touring people’s homes. :)

  42. thanks for hosting this party! I blog from my comfy family room chair that I call the Momma Bear chair – kids are not even allowed to look at it, much less sit at it. http://frugalmomx3.blogspot.com/2010/08/where-i-blog-garage-sale-finds.html

  43. What a fun party. I have been checking out everyone blogging spaces. So fun!
    I have a question? How do I grab a button, like your where do you blog button, if it doesn’t have a code underneath to copy and paste?

  44. Kim says:

    Your office and home are beautiful. Thanks for hosting this party.

  45. Ellie says:

    What a fun link up! Thanks for thinking of it. :)

  46. Thanks for hosting this fun party. Guess I should have cleaned my table off first. :D
    Have a great week.

  47. Shelle says:

    Thank you for hosting this, Kate. It’s fun! I’ve spent hours reading through blogs already. :)

  48. This is super fun! Actually the first time I have EVER joined a linked in party!!! Im new to blogging! Im Jess-Hi! Haha. You can see where I blog up top and click here on my link to see our new blog and online Marketplace. A cool fact about our office is Nate Berkus designed it! No joke! :) He is AMAZING!

  49. Richella says:

    Kate, this is a wonderful idea for a party. I had hoped to be here with bells on. Instead, I’m here in my galoshes. But I’m glad to be here! And, as often happens, I’m inspired by seeing where YOU work! Thank you for sharing and inviting all of us to share.

  50. Pemberley says:

    Great idea! I’m #129. Found you through BNOTP. I’m your newest follower! I will blog about the blog party tonight. Congrats on the garage sale profits.

  51. Struggler says:

    Great idea for a party. I’m going to be checking these links out, for sure.
    My Home Office is a bit of disaster – but am thrilled that it’s going to be my Labor Day project (at least, the painting part is – the rest will follow more slowly).
    I also blog just a little from work… but shhh, that’s a big secret :)

  52. Hi Kate,
    I feel a bit tardy to the party after seeing all of your responses, but what a super cute idea.
    Plus I found your blog because of it (yup a new viewer!) Such fun!
    All the best, Lynn

  53. This is such a great idea! It’s so fascinating to see where everyone works. And…wow! There are some great spaces out there!
    Thanks for hosting the party.

  54. I was wondering why all my bloggers were posting their blog space. How fun! Plus I got to find a new blog to follow. Great Blog Party you hosted!

  55. Joy says:

    Thanks for hosting this great party! It’s so much fun to see everyones spaces!

  56. denise says:

    thank you so much for doing this! we just moved and i have yet to get my office together. I’ll be frequenting this page a lot in the next few weeks to gather ideas. great idea! lovely! -denise

  57. Laurie says:

    This was a lot of fun and I got a lot of inspiration from seeing the many ideas everyone shared!

  58. Thanks for hosting such a fun link party! Love looking at everyone’s spaces.

  59. What a fun party! I am totally jealous of all the cute, blogging spaces that everyone has. I’d be way to embarrassed to show you my computer area! But this has given me some inspiration to make my area more serene/zen/inspiring! Thanks for hosting!

  60. Thanks for posting this, Kate! I’ve really enjoyed getting to view all of the other blogging space!

  61. Maria Killam says:

    What a coincidence that I just finished my office and I get to post it here!!
    Thanks so much!

  63. Natasha says:

    I wish I could join in but life has been crazy here this school term and I am way behind on my blogging. I can’t wait to go and see everyone else’s gorgeous spaces though, so thanks for hosting this fun linky party!

    Your spaces are great!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  64. Love your space..very pretty!!

  67. Thanks or hosting! I have loved checking out everyone’s spaces.

  68. I love the am and pm blogging sites…..mine are everywhere…it’s a good thing I have a laptop~

  69. KirstenL4W says:

    This was a great idea – thank you for hosting this! I’m sure I’ll have a lot of fun checking out everyone’s posts.

    BTW, my linky didn’t come up with a thumbnail, but I could have sworn that I selected one. Is there any way to change this?

  70. Kate, Thank you so much for hosting this fun party! I had to tell you I had the most visits to my blog EVER yesterday after I linked up to your blog! About 5 times as many as I normally get! Wow you are one powerful blogger!
    Amy

  71. robyn says:

    I ADORE both of your spaces! I think this post is BRILLIANT, what a GREAT, FUN party that is chock FULL of gorgeous inspiration. I’m loving the peek into everyones life! THANKS!!!

  72. DogsMom says:

    After looking at several of these beautiful spaces I now know why I am unable to let beautiful words flow.
    Besides the disorganization and outright clutter on my desk, I am the ONLY one who still has a humongous 90’s take -up- half -your -space monitor!
    (Not to mentiona zillion cords)

  73. Thanks so much for hosting this party! I’ve made a ton of new friends, so it’s been a lot of fun :)

  74. Sandra says:

    What a fun party. It is so fun to see all the spaces where people get creative! Thanks so much for hosting.

  75. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. says:

    Dear Kate, Thanks for hosting such a great party!!!

  76. Ha! Love this idea of wholesale blogging party :P I blog from the comfort of my study, I have a great desk with lots of natural light, as well as a comfy love seat, so you will find me at either of them. Congrats on your success of the garage sale, and all the things that you accomplished this weekend (5 kids? that’s a lot of fun for one woman!) Thanks for sharing!

  77. La says:

    Thank you for hosting this fun and unique party. I hope you have a wonderful week! La

  79. kate blue says:

    this was fun! A lot of people have way better spaces than mine, but I came away with so many great ideas!!!

  80. mismikado says:

    I love this idea and so many wonderful blog spaces! If only I could maintain a neater more magazine-esk space… but then I don’t think I’d ever get anything done O_O

    Congrats on the successful sale btw :)

  81. Kate says:

    great post!

    Although I have been known to blog in the bedroom . . . or while sitting on the couch . . . or at the public library . . . I only posted images of my usual / favorite place . . . which is while sitting at a lace-covered 100-year-old wooden table (lots of storage under that table) . . . thanks for hosting this . . . it IS fun / inspirational looking at all the neat spaces . . .

    Such a fun party! It’s going to take weeks to get through them all. Thank you for hosting – I am having a ball!

  86. Thanks for hosting this party! It’s been so much fun to get a glimpse into some of my favorite bloggers offices and blogging spots. Your office is amazing!

    And congrats on a successful garage sale- they’re a lot of work!!

  87. Shaunna says:

    Thanks, Kate, for hosting such a great party! I added mine at the last minute, and I’m thrilled to look through all these spaces! :) shaunna

  88. Woohoo, a party! I’m late..but better late than never, right? I’ve been having such a great time looking at everybody else’s spaces, I forgot to post mine until now. :) Have a great day!

  89. Fun! I just entered mine. Probably the last one:-)

  90. Where Do I Blog? Well sometimes on the lounge half lying down with my notebook, but most of the time to my home office desk. At the desk when I am alone and on the lounge when the family is home. It works for me!

  91. Mary Ann says:

    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment. I love your wreath. My front door is exactly like yours, but is in need of paint right now and a new wreath too. That sweet little face smiling out your door is so cute. And, where did you get that door mat, I want one!

  92. [...] so much for sharing your blog spaces this week ~ I was truly overwhelmed with the response to the blog party, nearly 300 inspirational stories, just amazing!  I’ve visited most of your spaces, met a [...]

  93. Katie says:

    We don’t have a laptop so i blog in the same spot but at least it is in an area where I can keep watch of the kiddos. I need more traffic (I”m still a rookie just started about a month ago) Suggestions?

  94. Carol Beck says:

    What a fantastic idea! Such incredible inspiration and so ironic that I found you today through Colour Me Happy. #168, when I am in the middle of painting my desk to make a blogging office within my bedroom. LOVE THIS PARTY. Thanks for sharing it.

  95. Jenny says:

    well damn I missed it :(

    ♥♥♥

  97. Jaime-Ann says:

    DOH! I missed this! On the upside I suppose since I am rearranging my pseudo office it was for the best that I missed it! I would love to participate in something like this moving forward! It kind of gives me an idea for something to do though….stay tuned! =)

  98. Kristin says:

    What a great idea for a party! I’m sad I missed it…boo! I loved to know if you’re planning another one. :) Great blog!
