From the Boudoir to the Loo: A Blogger Space Retrospective
Share on Tumblr
November 06, 2011 - Updated October 04, 2013

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.

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.

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.
