Desked v Desktopped

Have you seen my desk, I left it somewhere…..

Elvish Work Desk

Cool new blog called, Desked, its a gallery of Bloggers desks…a little peek into the places that we spend our time.

Being honest, I blog mostly from home… where I am now, but I dont really have a desk here.

I use an IKEA red breakfast tray (you know the ones with legs) it has all my ‘pooter crap on … and is handy for sitting on the sofa and not suffering 3rd degree burns to the thigh!

Perhaps in a week or two I’ll send the Desked folk an image of that so you can see it for yourself.

On the topic of Desks, an article in The Telegraph today about what your Desktop says about you….

:: Desktop with icons strewn across the screen – the owner is disorganised and tends to lose focus easily.

:: Even icons on each side – the owner values balance and proportion and tends to keep a cool head in tricky situations. Likely to be organised and dislike clutter.

:: Desktop with many rows of icons – reflects a person who needs everything to hand, likes to feel in control and on top of their life, while at the same time revealing a tendency to be slightly disorganised.

:: Personal photos as wallpaper – indicates the kind of person you are and what priorities you have. Often a parent will have a photograph of their child, or a keen traveller will have a photo of an exotic location. Photos of friends show popularity, which is useful in work environments where you need good people skills.

:: Plain blue wallpaper – suggests the kind of person who likes to keep their personal life private.

:: Trophy photos as wallpaper – can suggest a big ego and someone who revels in their past successes.

This is my desktop,

So what does it say about me?

The wallpaper in question is a photo from my very cool mate Dan!

Now, as the saying goes….  I’ve shown you mine, you show me yours! 🙂
