If you didn’t know, E and I live in a teeny tiny one bedroom apartment. So small that majority of our furniture lives all over the district, stored with different family members. It’s perfect for us because it is in prime location, we have river views from the driveway and the rent is quite low. Whilst there are so many perks to living “compact” we don’t have a second bedroom to use as an office so ALL of my blogging is completed on the couch, in my bed or wherever I’m sitting when inspiration strikes. But this weekend E and I worked out we had the room in our bedroom for a desk, and you have no idea how ecstatic that made me. I was finally going to have my own blogging corner! I’m pretty easy to please!
Being the responsible adults we are, E got her handy man pants on (she’s actually pretty good with a tool kit) and got measuring the tiny corner, and we did some research. Turns out desks can get pretty pricey, but after scouting a number of websites I found the perfect little baby that was the correct size, conveniently matched the other furniture in our bedroom and looked simple and cute! And a matching stool of course. Going out and getting a desk also forced me to stop in at the Salvo’s on the way because the flat pack wasn’t going to fit into the car with the five bags of clothes ready for donation taking up ample space in my back seat and boot.
I’d like to introduce you to my new little blogging spot. I feel like this place will keep me inspired and fresh. I finally have my own little space to get the creativity flowing and I’m feeling very much at home in my little corner. Plus it has been great for my shoulder and neck to actually sit up and blog – writing lying down is not very good for your posture! E also got me a super cute keyboard attachment for my iPad. I have a laptop but I find it easier blogging on the WordPress app’s over the real website. Gotta do things the easy way! I love how it is such a convenient contraption that just fits perfectly with the iPad – and now my tablet feels like a mini computer! My gorgeous gifted print by Nevertheless has also found a new home on my desk amongst my stationary and electronics, I think she fits in perfectly. Happy blogger.
Where do you blog? Do you have a designated area or are you one of those ‘whenever, wherever’ types?
PS – I’m so obsessed with my space right now that I told E she’s not allowed to use it. BAHAHAHA. I must learn to share.
