Several months ago it occurred to me that I had become a much better, and more prolific writer, as my writing spaces got progressively smaller and on the surface, less writer-friendly. In a previous life, I twiddled my thumbs in a spacious, sun-drenched home office. Now, I blog ferociously in a butler’s pantry.
After exploring my own writing space metamorphosis in this post, I set out to discover where other bloggers choose to blog, and why they blog where they do.
Christina Simon of Beyond the Brochure blogs in this sleek, stylish home office.
Jenny Heitz of Find a Toad finds inspiration in this cool, idiosyncratic home office.
Mikalee Byerman completely revamped her home office, which is in a loft, to match her revamped personal life.
Los Angeles artist Susan Logoreci blogs in her art studio.
Several bloggers blog in living rooms, dens, nooks and crannies.
Like Iron Spine Sally.
The Five Facets blogs in an enclosed deck.
Patrice Sarath writes in the pantry.
Kate Geiselman finds her blogging mojo in a favorite chair.
Aja Hannah, of Diaries of a Mixed (Up) Kid, on a couch.
BadBadWebbis fancies her couch too.
Jennifer McBride of Touching the Trees blogs in her bedroom.
Samantha Goodman of Life with Smalls goes one better and blogs in bed.
Gabi Coatsworth blogs where she eats.
Poot moves her laptop around the house.
Some bloggers choose to get out of the house altogether. Quite a few find their muse in coffee shops.
Like Annie Parker of Bitter Divorcee.
And Daniel Ruyter of Memoirs of a Single Dad.
And Rachel Kramer Bussel.
Jesika Jennings of Six Degrees Love blogs at work during her lunch hour.
Mutant Supermodel blogs at work too.
Alysa Salzburg, editor of the literary zine Beguile, has a virtual blogger space.
Ever the multi-tasker, William Quincey Belle blogs in the bathroom.
What I learned, during these past few months of being a blogger space voyeur, is that it doesn’t matter where writers write — it just matters that they do.
