For those of us who work from home, it can be hard to separate our living space from our working space. Which is why many experts advise us to have a dedicated office or home section for our work. I must confess, I don’t have a dedicated office space in my home. We were supposed to get our study up and running years ago. But life happened and keep happening, which is why the study does not look like a study. And why my blogging space is still a work in progress.
Although I don’t have a home office per se, I do have some spots in my home that I like to work in more than others. Being a blogger means I have a few gadgets to help me work effectively. And it can be tricky to have them all in one spot. So I tend to move around the house a lot when I work. Where I work in my home depends on my mood, the weather, where the kids at and what sort of work.
Create the perfect blogging space or spaces is easy once you have the right tools. Here are the most important you would need to blog effectively this 2018.
Get a writing desk
Regardless of the sort of space you have, for you to blog easy, you would need a good writing desk. If you intend to blog long-term, then you need to invest in comfort. The last thing you would want is damaging your posture while working.
This Splice Writing Desk above is a perfect example of a great desk to use. I came across this sleek writing desk online, and the minimalist design and grey finish caught my eye. This would be perfect for working from home.
Another perfect example of a great writing desk is this Gandino Writing Desk above. I also found this stunning desk while browsing online for home furniture and I was blown away. The design is such a beauty. It would look amazing in my home.
Pick a great spot
If you have the option of picking a spot to work in, make sure you go for a great spot. A spot with a view and ventilation is great. You would also need an airy room with a some place to move around.
I like things being tidy and organised, so I won’t be able to work or live in a house with clutter everywhere. That would be a massive distraction. And we all know how expensive distractions can be when you work from home.
Have all your gadgets
For blogging you would obviously need a reliable laptop and a smart phone . Having a reliable tablet is also a plus for when you can’t get on your laptop. If you can afford to, having a great camera would be ideal. I know some bloggers take photos only on their phones, but if you plan on taking your blog seriously, you would need to make some investments, one of them being a camera.
You should also have some photo props to make your pictures look extra pretty. Wall papers are great for this. Fluffy rugs, flowers and anything else you can think of could also work great.
