Where Do You Post From? From Where Do YOu Post?

I post from home in the dining area. We have a large table that seats about 8. Six chairs and lots of room cause there's only 2 of us. So I sit at the end of the table where I have the 'puter set up. We have a 'puter desk in the spare room but I get lonely in there!

The computer is in the bedroom at a desk. And sometimes I post from work at lunchtime as well.

I post from my 'computer room', which is the spare room and its kinda small. In it is most of my bike riding stuff and my grandson's toys. Right now I'm having a little bit of a problem with the puppy coming in here while I'm gone and chewing on my bike shoes.

I spend a LOT of time at the computer thanks for my passion for writing clear back to age 10 (finished my first book at age 11, but I've never tried to get published), and learning the intricacies of 3D computer art. I have a bad back and it just kills me to sit at a desk for more than an hour or so. I have a set up that allows me to sit in the living room with a comfy chair, cordless keyboard in my lap and a footstool. Sometimes I use my husband's computer which is a typical desk set up in the kitchen. Someday, we'll get an extra bedroom to use as a computer room and trike storage.

My Laptop is portable. I posted from a computer cafe in Austria last week.

Our game room has long been virtually unused. I have my computer in there, along with my bike repair stand, 2 bikes (curently) a small work/storage chest on wheels, 4 sets of wheel, and way too many parts, lol.

My weight machine I seldom use is in here too.

I call it my Inner Sanctum. I work from home and this is where I am probably 12 hours a day.

Late in the evening, I may pull the laptop on the right and go sit in the couch and watch TV. I have clients asking questions on a live help feature of my website, so I kinda have the umbilical cord thing happening. When I ride (2-4 days a week), I have my email directed to my Crackberry. I know, I'm Sick

From my bedroom, which is also my office. If I ever make enough money from writing, I'll get a separate office.

I lurk from just about anywhere in the zip code 61821 or 61801. Gotta love laptops and free wireless just about everywhere...

I post from my laptop in the sunroom I built on our house. Usually pretty quiet back here.

Nice corner 4Seven3....I can't have my nose in a corner though. I need to have my back to the wall. Maybe something having to do with growing up in the ghetto!

I post from the corner of my basement. Ok, it was a basement house at one time so our basement kitchen is behind me. (there is a regular kitchen upstairs)

Thanks...I dont mind the corner....the door is just to the right of me so I have a eyeball on potential intruders!

Usually from my laptop in the home office, but I received my Christmas gift early (2nd gen ipod touch) so I can now check in from the library or coffee shop.

I used to post from work. I don't do that at the new job. My boss has a clear line of site to my monitor, so I try to keep it work related. I only post from home now (currently laptop on the kitchen table). That means I post less, which is fitting, as I've been riding less <sigh>
