So often we’re met with pristine photographs and the same Ikea throw and handfuls of interiors but I always find it so interesting to see where bloggers do their creating, their mind mapping, writing and editing. Home is, for me, a place of sanctuary. A place to rest as well as to gently work and I love nothing more than penning a blog post from my bed. But equally, blog posts are conjured as if by magic from the fingertips, they’re fuelled by coffee and lemonade and by moments and memories. Let me introduce you to the spaces behind Daisybutter…
Arguably my best blogging comes from when I’m snuggled up in bed. Relaxing under the sheets offers me a new lease of creativity and I find that when I’m chilled out, words spill out a little faster, a little more natural and much more from the heart. Plus, it makes for a comfy tushy when putting together bigger posts!
Cosy In An Armchair
Nine times out of ten, my Sundaze posts and Petite joys posts are scribed from the comfort of my Granny’s armchair. It perches quite comfortably in the corner of our living room and it makes for the ideal spot to write and write without being disturbed by anybody. It also makes me feel a little sophisticated and I can totally envision myself having a cosy chair to blog from in my own home. One day, eh?
A Bustling Coffee Shop
When motivation runs dry, my go-to spot to blog from is a coffee shop. I drink enough coffee that I can justify an afternoon spent hogging a table without feeling guilty and, actually, one of my local coffee houses provides table service after seeing me there for 2+ hours. I like to churn out lengthier pieces at coffee shops, fuelled by hearing others around me and drawing inspiration from everyday conversation. Once in a while, it really pays off to forget the headphones and listen in on some daily mundane.
On The Go
Finally, I couldn’t finish up this post without mentioning the inspiration I draw from every moment of the day. Be it the autumn leaves falling like foliage snow or a quote that I overhear somebody offering a friend by way of solace or even an awesome line that can be written into a post, I generate new blog ideas every moment. These are all logged safely on my phone or in my Fantastic Beasts’ Obliviate notebook, ready for future use.
Where do you find you write best?
