Sometimes I Just Want To Blog In Bed

Sometimes I Just Want To Blog In Bed

I know what it is like to use my laptop computer or my smartphone to blog in bed at night (Those two electronic devices were specifically designed to go with us almost anywhere).

For the record, it would be bloody ridiculous of me to place a desktop computer in my bed to blog at night.


Because a desktop computer was meant to be used on a desk; hence the name, “Desktop computer.”

If a person wants to use their desktop computer at night, they might as well leave their bedroom and walk into their home study.

Anyway, I have a very strong feeling that I am not the only blogger who enjoys blogging in bed at night every once in a while.

So, today I am going to discuss a simple pleasure known as, “Blogging in bed at night.”

There Is No Place That Is Quite As Comfortable As Your Own Bed

There are those times when I want to be totally comfortable when I am putting a blog post together at nighttime.

Since my mind associated my bed with comfort, I find it rather easy to occasionally blog in bed at night.

Also, when I am comfortable, I can fully immerse myself in my writing.

Sitting At The Desk With My Computer Is My Regular Place For Content Creation

When it comes to doing my quota of blogging, I subconsciously know that sitting at a desk with my computer in front of me is the most effective way to create content for my blog.

My mind associates sitting at a desk with a computer in front of me as being ready to do some serious work.

Also, time can pass easily while I am busy getting everything ready for my next blog post (Now, that is a good thing if I am creating a blog post in the daytime, but bad at nighttime because I will ignore the urge to sleep until I get everything that I want done).

I Can Stop Whenever I Want When I Am Blogging In Bed

I have heard (and also read) from reliable sources that the blue light emitted from computers, tablets and smartphones can keep you up at night (If you are one of those people who are reading about this concept for the first time, you should read Maureen Salamon’s article, How Blue Light Affects Your Sleep, for further information).

Apparently, I am completely different; blue light emitted from the screens of those electronic devices do not prevent me from sleeping.

If I am putting a blog post together at night in bed and my body tells me that it is time for me to sleep, I will obey; I will close the lid of my laptop computer (if I am using it to blog) or place the smartphone down (if I am testing out the Beta version of the WordPress Mobile App) and ready myself for sleep (After all, my mind associates the bed as a place for resting).

Final Thoughts

I deem it okay for me to occasionally blog in bed at night.

However, blogging in bed at night is not recommended for everyone (Especially if you happen to be one of those people whose circadian rhythm is affected by blue light).

Do you occasionally blog in bed at night?

If your answer happens to be, “Yes,” please tell me all about it via my blog’s commenting section.

And, thank you for reading!

  1. I always write my new blog posts while laying down in bed. Hahaha..I don’t know why but it makes me feel inspired to write and express myself better in a relax manner.

      1. βœŒπŸ˜† I am a housewife, I move around the house doing chores, cooking and such for hours. So I can only write my blog posts in advanced at night in bed. After dinner and shower… somehow almost ready for bed.

  2. Interesting post Renard. I have a blue light filter activated permanently on my phone and tablet because it helps reduce my migraines.

    Most of the time I blog at my desk but if I’m having a relaxing day and I’m feeling inspired but want to indulge, I’ll make a cuppa and go back to bed to blog in the morning- not at night though.

    Today I’m taking my tablet and it’s keyboard into town to blog from a cafe πŸ™‚

    1. πŸ™‚ That is fine by me, Qonyike.

      You are entitled to get as much beauty sleep as you want.

      You can leave blogging in bed at nighttime for the rest of us.

      Thank you for reading and commenting.


  3. I often blog at night in bed. I will typically compose at least one post on my iPhone while in bed. I will also catch up on reading comments people have made to my posts and will read the posts other bloggers that I follow had posted that day that I didn’t have the time or opportunity to get to during the day.

    1. πŸ™‚ Fandango, thank you for letting me know that you are one of the many bloggers who blog in bed.

      I also agree that catching up with comments can be done at nighttime as well.

      Do enjoy the rest of your day, my friend.

  4. Great title for your post Renard! My response is “Don’t we all want to blog in bed sometimes?” ROFL πŸ™‚
    My bed is my place to read actual books & rest & sleep. If I had a better set up I would blog in bed.
    However I AM content to be in living room with laptop & TV or stereo on & type away…..
    Fun post! Thanks!

  5. When I was really sick, I didn’t have the energy to sit up and going to the bathroom was exhausting. The type of cancer I has caused too much pain that intensified when I sat up (on my cancer tumour). Although I could walk, I was basically bedridden.

    I did all of my blogging in bed.

    Thankfully I am getting better, have more energy and can sit for short periods of time. My blogging is now divided between my bed and the office.

    I don’t know if I’ll ever completely stop blogging (and doing everything else) from bed, but I look forward to always being able to choose where to blog. Until then my default will be my bed.

  6. Amazing and terrific blog post Renard. I sometimes blog in my bed especially in the early mornings when I wake up around 3/4 am , bring my laptop close to me and it is so comfy to write a blog in bed especially during cold daysπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ‘

    1. πŸ™‚ You will find blogging in bed to be enjoyable.

      By the way, do not let the puppy chew on your power cable; it would be bad for him or her as well as your computer.

      Thank you for participating in the discussion.


    2. We have a cat that likes to chew on cable wires and any wires that dangle. We bought dog and cat protectors – sleeve covers from Amazon and they have worked well. Plus, the wires can be better organized and look nicer as several will fit into the sleeve.

  7. I try not to do anything in bed other than rest and read, sleep hygiene and whatnot. But I do enjoy blogging on the couch with my laptop. In a pinch, pencil and paper works as well, since I don’t need to write downwards as how I would need to with a pen.

    I’ve heard people write with text-to-speech, so perhaps you could try that if blue light is a concern. Of course, it carries its own set of problems which might disturb your preparation to sleep, lol.

    1. πŸ™‚ Okay, fair enough, Stuart.

      The last thing that you want to do is ruin that sleep hygiene of yours.

      Jotting a draft down with the usage of a pencil and paper will also work fine.

      I will pass on the text-to-speech; I prefer the old-fashioned method; which is to type words on a keyboard.

      And, I stated in my blog post, “Apparently, I am completely different; blue light emitted from the screens of those electronic devices do not prevent me from sleeping.”

      Thank you for your valuable input.

  8. Not so much blogging, but I do tend to write my rom-com stories in bed, or very close to bedtime.

    I find I’m more creative and inspired at night. As soon as it gets dark outside and the moon shows it face, my mind shifts and I find I can harness my best rom-com self, lol.

    But, the downside of this is that it often keeps my mind awake, swirling with ideas long after I’ve shut my laptop off.

  9. I never blog in bed. I use a laptop and prefer to blog in an office-type atmosphere because it helps me to stay alert. I am an early riser and enjoy showering and getting dressed to greet the day. Hubby and I have breakfast and then I start blogging. I take breaks from blogging for household chores and exercise.

  10. Please don’t take offence, darling, but to me blogging in bed is just like watching TV in bed (just kidding!), yet I’ve been both working and blogging lying down on my coach for three months already, so who am I to say Boo?

  11. I blog in bed, using my phone, if the inspiration just so happens to hit me while I’m laying there. Sometimes laying in bed is the only way I get a thought I want to get written down completed – I imagine because I finally shut off enough distractions.
