One day in the distant past, I was reading blogs and happened to see several comments left by someone calling herself "Zibilee". I tracked her down to her own blog, and after reading some of her posts, I subscribed.
You won't find any fancy blog design, you won't find many bells and whistles, but what you will find is content focusing on well-written book reviews covering a variety of genres and topics. (In other words, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.)
If you've never visited Heather at her blog, Raging Bibliomania, I certainly hope you take the time to do so today; I have a feeling that you'll be subscribing just like I did!
If you'd like to see any of the following photos in their original sizes, just click on them. Take it away, Heather!
A lot of bloggers have a nice desk or a comfortable table on which to compose their bookish posts. I, on the other hand, have my cozy little La-Z-Boy couch. I find it's the perfect space for me and often have trouble being creative if I'm not on this little green couch. As you can see, I share my couch with tons of books and magazines, and in this way I'm able to keep all the pertinent books I may be writing about at arm's length. I also have to admit that any book that I may have a hankering to read over the next few weeks often ends up on my couch as well.
Sometimes I have to share my creative space with my rather large dog Boogie, who loves to be close, and will whine if he's not allowed to help contribute to my creative endeavors. We sometimes have a little wrestling match for space, with Boogie being the winner a majority of the time. My little love seat is in the perfect spot because I can sit there with a cup of tea or coffee on my right and look across the room and survey the neighborhood through the window. I also find it's the prefect reading spot, and I'll happily put up the footrest and get lost for hours in a good book. Oh, I've tried other spaces and spots, but there's something wonderfully magical about this particular spot, and everyone in the house knows just where to find me when I'm blogging, writing or reading. I just park myself there, turn on the laptop and get busy!
I love La-Z-Boy, and I certainly love that shot of Boogie. It's good that you let him share the space with you because I have a feeling that saying no might well be a lost cause!
I think that laptops mean we're moving away from the traditional office and desk set-up, and your blogging space looks comfy. (I'd love to take a seat there and take a peek at all those books!)
Heather, thank you so much for allowing us this glimpse into your home. We really appreciate it!
