If you're a blogger, and possibly also a writer, you probably spend a lot of time with your laptop. I know I do. So here are seven ways to make the most of it:
1. Light Source
Useful when you're trying not to wake up roommates, etc... Furthermore, its cumbersome nature provides a greater challenge than simply using a flashlight or reading light.
2. Clutter Concealer
Step 1: consolidate flat clutter.
Step 2: place laptop on top of flat clutter.
Step 3: Brag about how clean your desk is.
WARNING: I have never done this, and I think you shouldn't because it could possibly start a fire.
3. Dust Collector
Effort required on your part: zero.
If you ever wish your laptop weren't a dust collector, however, compressed air works wonders--and it's really fun to use! Just don't shoot it in your eye.
Hard, square, flat--yet somehow, just as huggable as a stuffed animal.
5. Way to Look Busy
Fake typing. So much better than fake texting.
6. Muscle Toning
Unless you are lucky enough to have one of those super-slim, super-light laptops, carrying it around in a purse or backpack can do wonders for the shoulder muscles. Doing this can also contribute to scholiosis.
7. Hot Water Bottle
Really. Not even kidding on this one. This discovery is what prompted me to write this entire post. Good for those nights when you've stayed up so late writing that you just feel ill. :D
And you'll want to have your laptop ready THIS SATURDAY because we are officially starting. . . .
