How I Blog


1) Where I blog: I blog curled up on my bed, with my laptop in front of me, a couple of books next to me (purely random choices in the gif above) and a cup of tea at the ready.


2) My blogging notebook: This is the notebook I tend to plan a lot of my posts in… as you can probably see, I'm not the most focussed person and I doodle a lot; let's just say I'm a professional doodler… I also stick little sketches I've done into it, simply because I lose them otherwise. Oh and I blurred out the words a bit so you can't see what they say… a few of them are future posts and I don't want to ruin the surprise. :)


3) The TBR Pile: The TBR pile consists of books that are 'to be read'… and I like to think that I have mine – somewhat – under control. I normally have two or three books on the go and each time I finish one, I pick up a new one from my TBR pile and review the old one. It's quite a simple system, really.

So that's how I blog in three gifs. Please tell me if you enjoyed this format as I'm thinking of doing something similar in the future.

  4. Lovely post!
    I tend to write my posts at a desk or on the couch. Your notebook is so cute!

    1. Thanks – I'm not organised enough to write at a desk haha! :)

      It was a Christmas present from one year, but I think it was from somewhere called Anorak. :)

  5. I love your notebook!! Wow... I think it's amazing that you keep it. I just blog on the fly. I really don't plan anything out. I sit in my recliner and watch TV and blog. I would like to plan more out though!

  9. You made your own GIFs... *fangirls* BTW, you cracked it! The way to lure me into a post is GIFs... simple, really. Love this post, it seems like you put a lot of effort into it.
    You could be a professional doodler. Just sell them & you're halfway there ;)
