One thing I love love love to perve on when I read other peoples blogs is their blogging spot.
Where they surf, where they read, where they create, where they write: where they blog.
I also adore sneaky peaks at other peoples homes and their space. (Yep, I am a sticky beak!)
I yearn to tell you that my blogging spot is a streamlined writers peice of heaven and organisation. It is not.
The first is in my kitchen.
My desk is by the window and I have a gorgeous view over the trees, across Adelaide, eventually to the sea. It is very 1970′s, in need of time and energy and style to renovate. We will get there eventually.
And why do I blog?
I have blogged privately for many years: since 2002, when I lost my first baby, and when blogging and my journey to motherhood was truly in its infancy. In those days, it was Pyra hosted and I had to pay for a blogging account and there was no ability to upload photos even! Unimaginable, these days...
I continued to blog privately until January 2008, when I started a new blog centred around my weight loss attempts. Through my activities on a parenting forum I realised that I had shared so much of myself already, I was happy for other people to read my blogging.
I blog a lot more now that I'm working at home. Despite having my children close together, I have always managed to work part time, and now I'm doing some freelance things from home, blogging fits in beautifully.
I love blogging. I love writing. I love the creativity behind it. I love the words. I love the engagement. I love journalling my weight loss experiences. I love to swap tales of family life. I love to influence about everyday health. I love to blog about food. I love to be insprired by others. I love to follow and be followed. I love the challenges.
Most of all I love the ability to share.
This post, about my blogging spot and about my blogging in general, was first published a while back, on the blog of the lovely Sarah at Just Me. Go visit her....she is just about to host an awesome auction!
I've reposted it today, so I can link to Chantelle's Blogversation...
