I thought it would be interesting to see where people spend their time blogging. I am sure it is different for everyone. I imagine for some people this space is very personal. For others, inspirational. For yet others, a space they share with the teens and the husband and everyone in between. Since I spend about 20 out of 24 hours at my blogging space, I actually have a bed next to my computer so that I can just get some sleep in between posts. Just kidding! Although it seems that way sometimes. Even though I have a laptop, I do not have a wireless router yet so it has to be connected to the cable. Or I would be blogging from my bed!
I do not even have a computer desk right now. Let me correct that. I actually have one, but my old PC is inhabiting it. It needs to go away. Some friends gave it to me a couple of years ago, when I had, go ahead and gasp- dial up Internet. But I was so excited to have Internet at home, let me tell you.
Then the computer started crashing on a daily basis, then every half hour, then every 5 minutes....and Pony Girl experienced some pretty major frustration. Therefore, I got a laptop, but never moved the PC off of the desk because I still had photos and documents I wanted to try to download off of it at some point. Oh, and the friends do not want it back, so now I have to figure out a way to remove of the beast. And let me tell you, it's a beast. It looks like one of the original Bill Gates computer prototypes.
So now I use my dining table as my computer station. Since I'm on my computer all of the time and don't eat (joking again) this works well. I do not have an actual designated dining room in my apartment, so this table is in between my front door and my living room, and in front of a huge picture window with a great view outside.
In my space you'll also see a lamp, because there is bad lighting here at night. Some great birch candle holders and leaf embossed candles, which I got as a Christmas gift last year and have yet to light. My favorite yellow mug with the painted leather lacing on the top. An orchid which I just got as an end of the year gift from one of the students in my class. I have always wanted an orchid! And of course, my station would not be complete without bottle caps, my candy snack of choice. What this picture does not show is the huge pile to the left of the computer. My pile of mail, pictures, horse magazines and catalogs, sunglasses, keys, pens, notes, and notes to remind me of the notes.
I do not even have an ergonomically correct office chair. What I use is one of the wooden dining chairs with a pillow on it. Oh my aching back. So if you wish, show us your space. When we are writing and telling each other our horse and family stories, where are you? Boy, wouldn't it be cool if we could actually do it from the horses back? Okay, some techno-pants is probably out there posting from their smart phone right now!
