Guido ‘Four Mobiles’ Fawkes is still in France and last week he posted a picture of his blogging location.
On Saturday I took a photo of my own favourite blogging location. My home is just outside The Close of Salisbury Cathedral and I often blog from a wooden bench below Britain’s tallest spire. I enjoy the view on the right whenever I look up. I didn’t agree with Edward Heath on
many things but I share the love he had for this jewel of England – but not, unfortunately, an income to live within The Close’s walls.
Everything I need to blog is contained within the black bag you see propped up against the bench:
- One 17-inch Mac (which I picked after entering a stalemate trying to choose between a HP Envy vs Spectre for the longest time) with a backup battery
- One mobile phone (Blackberry)
- One portable scanner
- One Vodafone mobile connect card
- One iPod
- One FM radio
- One digital camera
- One wooden ruler and LAMY fountain pen
- One tin of M&S mints.
- Lots of cables.
It’s a mobile office that accompanies me to Portcullis House or to Starbucks coffee shops across the world. If I lose that bag I’m sunk.
