ProBlogger HQ 2.0

A few weeks back I mentioned in passing that I’d show you my new office in a video. I never quite got around to that – so thought I’d show you today.

It’s not a whole lot different to last time in terms of desk and equipment but the outlook and room itself is a lot brighter and more comfortable. One thing I forgot to mention in the post is that this house not only has central heating for winter but for days like today (which will go over 42 degrees Celsius or 108 Fahrenheit) it’s got evaporative cooling.

As I did last time I did a tour of my office – feel free to show your own Blogging HQ in comments below. Do it as a post, post a picture to flickr or a video to youtube – and include the links below.

Here’s what readers shared last time (here and here).

    Thanks also for giving me a good laugh with this line in your comment above:

    “I should say that some of those books are my wives”

    I think you meant to say “my wife’s”. :D

    nice and simple arrangement of work space.
    like your idea of having wireless mouse and keyboard. It unclutters the desk quite a bit doesnt it ?

    How did you manage the lighting? I was seeing brief moments of dim lighting and then suddenly the light went up.

    Hi Darren,
    we love your office! Me and my wife just started a blog website and bellow is link of our office.

    Wireless keyboard and mouse look so tidy!
    On the cord-hiding issue, somewhere I’ve seen a powerbar that lets you store the extra cordage inside it. Besides your built-in bookshelves, that’s a workplace item I am coveting! Can’t find it again now, of course, but I do keep seeing a T-bar shaped PVC cable organizer made to fit along the edge of the desk that looks like it might do the trick, if somewhat less subtle to look at.

    Books: It’s like having the internet on your shelves :)

  14. I have been away for a while and only reading your feeds but here it is. You might recognize them;)

  15. One day I’ll have my own HQ.

    I just made a video post about:
    My Mobile Office on one of my sites . .. It’s pretty simple, and I try to stick to 3 key concepts.

  17. Jenny says:

    hehe your keyboard looks like a piece of paper with keys drawn on it.

    Here’s mine:

    Just upgraded to the 30″ Cinema Display yesterday, so am loving it! And I’m totally not down with these tidiness, un-clutter types.. if I’m focusing on decluttering all the time, I’m not getting enough work / imagining done. Some of us *thrive* in (clean) clutter!

  19. Mosley says:

    Here is a video I did of my home for some of my friends. Its of my whole house but in the beginning I show off my Blogging HQ.

  20. Emily says:

    I found an idea for your cord issues under your desk. Check out this website below. I have a friend that loves these.

    A photo of my set up:

    I bog, code, and edit video from this spot. Works well enough for me, even though it looks like a bomb went off.
