BLOGversation: This is where I blog, what about you?

Where I blog | Share where you blog on Instagram | #whereiblog

You know what I love about blogging, it can happen pretty much anywhere. I was talking to a mum from school recently and she’d just taken a trip overseas. She works for herself, and she said, “A holiday is great, but the problem is that if I don’t work, I don’t make the money. So now I have to make up for all the fun.”

Whether you make money as a blogger, or do it for fun {or both!} – the beauty with blogging is that it can go where you go and usually if you’re traveling the content gets better and more exciting/interesting/colourful.

Today I wanted to explore where you do most of your blogging. Is it in bed? On the couch? At the kitchen table? A little cafe? Your home office? Or somewhere else?

Above is where I blog when I’m behaving, or escaping the noise of my family. Otherwise I’ll blog while I’m around everyone, sitting cross-legged on my lounge – like I’m doing right now! My desk usually looks a bit more organised than that. Oh, who am I kidding. Sometimes it does, but mostly it’s chaotic…

You can leave a comment below sharing where you blog, or I thought I’d make it really visual and get bloggers to share a picture of where they blog on Instagram – just snap a photo and add the hashtag #whereiblog. I’ll put together a little gallery of photos here on my blog, with links to each blog so people can get to know you more, so make sure you write your blog link under your photo as well.

I’m looking forward to seeing where you do all your best writing. Share away!

    I love your work space! Clutter and all! It’s bright and cheery. I’d love to work there. =)

  • http://lilybettandboy.blogspot.com/ Lilybett and Boy

    At the co-opted dining table, under the watchful eyes of Yoda and next to a new pile of VHS tapes. What am I meant to do with old VHS tapes???

  • Pip

    I blog on my phone (sending an email to my WordPress), my iPad with keyboard or computer. I blog wherever I feel the need to unload, de-stress and process. Most of what I blog is personal and my battle with depression and where a depressed brain might take me in family and work interactions. http://www.stopamoment.wordpress.com

  • Annelise

    I use my MacBook and use my iPhone to capture most photos. My blog itself is still building. Being a 21 year old student, I don’t have much to write about. But it’s slowly building! It’s http://citrussmile.blogspot.com.au :)

    • http://www.simplybrittany.com/ Simply Brittany

      Heyyy! I’m 21, too. Definitely checking out your blog right now! :)

    • shana

  • Belinda Spencer

    I blog at my computer desk in my loungeroom surrounded by my children, my cat, hubby and all the noise of said inhabitants as well as the tv. So I blog in chaos. Here’s my blog: http://happyscrapspace.blogspot.com/ :-) xoxo

  • Kylie Cornish

    I blog in my scraproom, which use to be our study. I use our desktop PC as it has photoshop on it and that where I edit my photo for my blog. I have an iPad I use all over the house to tweak and read blogs :) http://katgurl72-kylie.blogspot.com.au/

  • Dida Sundet

    I blog on the dining table, on the sofa, in my head (before I get to either of those places with my Mac) surrounded by noise, cats kid and clutter. One day maybe I’ll start doing it at my desk! :) http://adventuresinjedi.wordpress.com

  • Paula Davis

    I usually blog in my favorite chair, preferably with my little dog beside me. I keep thinking some day I’ll have a desk and ‘official’ blogging area, but truly don’t know that will ever happen! http://pauladavispeace.com

  • Cathy

    ooh, your space is much neater than my space ;-) I have blogged about it here – http://crafteecc.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/this-is-where-i-blog-what-about-you.html as I don’t do Instagram ;-)

  • Aqilah

    hi. I’ve blogged about it too – http://littleladyandhers.blogspot.com

  • Michelle

    I posted my pic on Instagram too (I am @mamapyjama)
    Here is where I blog…. at my old desk (been in the family for ages), surrounded by plants, piles of paper and always with chocolate on hand! Often with the baby beside me, or on my lap feeding :-D

  • Lynn Somerstein

    This is where I blog– a little of everything. http://lynnsomerstein.com/living-well-blog/

  • Marissa

    I usually blog on my tablet or phone. My blogs are always about my daily observations, so those two devices are always handy when I want to write! – http://whythinkthatway.blogspot.com

  • shana

    I usually blog away on my lappy chilling out on the lounge or in bed occasionally I will post from my phone. I’ m a newbie to blogging so there isnt’ an awful lot happening at the moment but everyone should pop by and follow me :-p http://mummaandmila.wordpress.com/

  • http://1chocolatebox.blogspot.co.nz/ toni d.

    I normally blog on my teeny tiny desk, you know the old school ones little kids use that has a moveable top and you can keep stuff underneath? Yeah that. I miss my proper desk which is in storage. *sigh* But when it gets really chilly, I end up blogging from the bed, with my laptop and coffee on a lap-tray. http://1chocolatebox.blogspot.com

  • http://ShanaNorris.net/ Shana Norris

    Your space looks like one that would inspire creativity.

    I’m like you: in my office if I’m being good, but more often on the sofa in our den. Which is where I am now :)

    Anywhere, cross legged with a cup of hot chocolate and Coldplay playing in the background :)

    Everywhere can I use my laptop!!:)

  • Naomi Fenton

    At the moment I blog either at my kitchen table or in a chair in the lounge room. I moved (aaaages ago in March) and I still haven’t set up my workspace. I’ve got a little room that’s just off the main lounge room and in the next school holidays I plan (hope) to get it organised. I can’t wait until I can sort it out into somewhere nice to sit and create!

  • http://lemon-freckles.blogspot.co.uk/ Toni-Louise

    It’s perfect! My blogging space is pretty similar, I need a little chaos to be inspired. Love the vibrant colours! :) xx

  • http://www.simplybrittany.com/ Simply Brittany

    I blog from my home office! Usually while listening to music and snacking on peanut butter and apples.

  • Leesa Maree Grozdan

    I’m usually on the couch on my laptop. I SHOULD be in my study place but it’s crowded with lots of stuff!

  • http://www.mycustardpie.com/ MyCustardPie

    Normally I’m staring out from my upstairs window in Dubai looking out onto waving palm fronds, or curled up on my favourite sofa. At present away from Dubai, the usual location #whereiblog
    to the UK. Everyone I know here has a good wireless connection, even my Mum
    and Mother-in-law. It’s nice and peaceful in my Mum’s conservatory and,
    as it’s raining, may even get some blogging done today :) http://instagram.com/p/clvrhNp_Vi/

  • Kate @ Framed Cooks

    I have a little teeny desk in my kitchen where I blog…since I write a cooking blog, that is not only convenient as I am always bouncing up and down to check something, but it also feels, well, right! My desk faces a window and almost once a day I am distracted by deer walking by (this time of year with the mamas and their babies), and my faithful hound dog is always curled up on the rag rug by my feet. I blog on my MacBook Air though, so sometimes I put it under my arm and take it outside – or upstairs under the covers! Love this idea – thanks for asking!

  • http://www.findingmyselfyoung.blogspot.com.au/ Toni

    I usually blog from my laptop on the couch. Since ive had my baby 11 days ago I do a lot from my phone because its easier to use while breastfeeding. I haven’t got as much time to blog these days though. I added my photo to instagram :)

  • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

    aww your spot is so cute :) mine’s a fracking mess but i could share if you really wanna see it xD

  • Fiona Monteleone

    I blog from this awesome view which i am extremely grateful for. We love living the Coastal Life x

  • Joy

    Thanks for this post, Chantelle! I wrote a post for this. http://joyousreads.blogspot.ca/2013/08/blogversation-this-is-where-i-blog-what.html

  • Kierstyn Salinas

    My set up is a bit similar to yours, but you have so much more color!
    Your blogging desk is a definite inspiration to mine – I love color so why don’t I have more of it!

  • chantelle

    I usually blog from my kitchen table or lying down on the couch/bed.

  • http://www.stylingyou.com.au/ Nikki | Styling You

    Just added my desk shot for you on IG … it’s a corner of our lounge/dining space. When I grow up I want an office of my own ;)

  • Home with Charlie

    After seeing some lovely photos on here I’m WAAAAAAYY too embarrassed to show where I blog from….my desk is such a mess!! I’m in the process of re-organising and it seems that I’m creating more mess than I am de-cluttering. There will be a post about the office transformation soon over on HomeWithCharlie.com.

  • FLMOMSBLOG

    Chantelle, Hi! I sent you my picture via instagram last night, barbie62.

  • BlondieInk

    At the moment I blog from my couch, laptop balanced on my knees. I have a spare room I’m converting to an office but it’s a slow process as we save up for quality pieces!

  • Natasha

    I’m a new blogger and at the moment lots of it is done in my head! But when I do write it’s either on the couch with my laptop on my lap or at our work space wall unit in our living area. I just added my photo on Instagram – natasha_littlemissrose

  • Jamie

    I usually blog at my desk or on my bed. The bed is a bad habit that i need to break badly!

  • http://www.liahalsall.com/ Lia Halsall

    I also posted mine on Instagram.

    I have a room at home for my ‘home office’ which I absolutely love. I recently bought all new furniture for it in white. Now it’s bright as well as inspiring.

  • Grit & Glamour™

    I blog at my dining table…it’s my favorite place because it is full of light. I don’t like being sequestered in a room, although sometimes when you’re writing, interruptions are not welcome. ;)

  • Deb Richmond

    I’ve just started blogging so mostly I’m sat at the kitchen table. My instagram isn’t public so hopefully it’s ok to share here.

    Amidst the mess of the kitchen bench for me – was gutted
    that it only took 48 hours with fancy new camera before I had put messy finger
    marks on it – not sure when I will become a grownup capable of a clean
    workspace.

  • Lisa {Plain Jane Creations}

    I blog in my kitchen most of the time and today I wrote a post about settling into our new home and the places I blog in this house. http://plainjanecreations.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/starting-to-feel-like-homefinally.html

  • Sidetracked

    The hash tag doesn’t seem to be working for me so I thought I’d go straight to the source

  • Jessica Frost

    I blog on our couch, our bed or sometimes I even write ideas for a post in my notebook at work and type it up when I get home! Posted on my blog & instagram – http://www.aheartfulloffrost.com/2013/08/this-is-where-i-blog.html

  • http://kimbalikes.com Kim-Marie Williams

    I posted mine on Instagram and you inspired me to write a post about it!

    I blog from my sofa. Setting myself up one big desk with all my stuff proved too difficult because the only place it would fit was in a place I didn’t want to work – facing a wall and upstairs away from the windows and garden (and to be honest, the TV somedays!).

    So now I have a little shelf table tucked in beside the sofa and a little occasional table repurposed as an In Station, and I cleared out a shelf on the bookcase for all my reference books for my fledgling styling business, and my client files and reference material for my Mary Kay business.

    It’s not standard but it works beautifully for me – and doesn’t take over the whole house!

    • http://kimbalikes.com Kim-Marie Williams

      And if it’s a beautiful day, I pick up my stuff and blog outside in my tropage garden with the bunny bouncing around my feet. x

  • Yvonne Rhinehart

    Currently it usually happens from my bed. It should be happening for a better spot, but I live in a cramped spot.

  • Sewcooklaughlive

    I have a tiny little area that is where I blog from. It is somewhere between the kitchen & lounge room. It is perfect because I am handy to the tea & biscuits while still close enough to the TV to keep me amused.
