I always find it interesting when blog authors share how they work, where they work and what exactly the process of writing a post on their site is, so today, in a break from WordPress tutorials, I’m going to do the same.
My lovely wooden desk! Note the high-tech monitor stand.
We’ll start with a picture — this is my desk. On the left is my desktop, a pretty nippy machine with an overclocked I5, 8GB of RAM and a decent graphics card. This computing powerhouse has just enough power to let me have Notepad++ and Chrome at the same time, the setup I normally go for, with one on each screen.
In the middle of my desk you’ll see my lovely Apple keyboard. This is the only bit of Apple tech I’ve got and I use it mainly because it’s a damn good keyboard. As I use it so much, it’s something I’m happy spending more on and I’d recommend getting one.
Right at the back of my desk, behind the right side monitor is my Alesis Multimix 4 which I use as an audio interface for my microphone setup, which includes two condenser and two dynamic mics. When I’m not using them with my band, I use a single dynamic for recording screencasts. These are great as they’re directional, so point them away from the keyboard and you don’t get any key noise!
