I noticed a post this week on Torque Mag showing the offices of different WordPress people around the world, I love seeing posts like this, I find it interesting to see inside the offices of other people who work online. My personal favourite is Devin Walker's in San Diego:
Jeff at WPTavern followed up with a post of this own showing his home office also, mentioning he's on the look out for a standing desk which is something I've also considered.
I just finished my new office so I thought I'd show the WPLift HQ as well, my new office is a converted garage at our home here in Manchester in the UK. I have a multi-screen setup with 3 on my desk ( 2 for work and 1 for Twitter ) and also one TV connected up for gaming / sport watching!
I work on PC with Windows 7 currently and do my all my creative work in Adobe cloud.
How about you ? Share some photos of your Workspace with the WPLift readers!
