My Unorthodox Blogging Zone

I'm moving house in 36 days (not that I'm counting!), and in the run up to the big day I seem to have been doing a considerable amount of visual furniture arranging planning exactly where everything is going to go.

One area in my new home I've been picturing in particular is my blogging space - which got me thinking about where I currently get into 'blog mode'.  And since my space is a little more unusual that just tapping away at my desk I thought I'd share it - and hopefully get some feedback on the weirdest places you've conjured up a blog post.

When I first started blogging, I had so much I wanted to say I thought I would be able to be able to write wherever whenever. What I hadn't accounted for was 'bloggers block'. I actually found that when I sat down at my desk laptop in hand, all ready to get cracking, I struggled to get the words out.

Instead, I found that it was much easier to write on the go. Specifically, on the train.

Presumably, this has something to do with the fact that I plug in my headphones, zone out from the other noise and can write all but completely uninterrupted. While I'm travelling, there's nothing else I should be doing; it's much easier to knuckle down when I'm not thinking about putting on another load of washing. How fun do I sound right now...

It feels more laid back to type up a post on my phone, and for me this makes the words flow a little bit more easily. There's also a whole train of people who can proof read my ramblings.

Ok, that last bit was a complete joke. 

In all seriousness, it is really important to find the thing that's right for you. Whether that be what you're posting, when you're posting or where you're posting. If you find yourself struggling to get out what you want to say, try experimenting writing in other environments. The results may be better than you expect!

Where is the strangest place you've written a blog post? Where is your perfect blogging space?
