My Favorite Blogging Furntiure: Sumo Lounge Bags
Although it is somewhat off the topic of WordPress, I’ve always enjoyed it when blogs discuss their blogging setup with their readers. After all, the typical blogger ranges from spending an hour a day blogging to doing so as a full time job, making the topic of comfort an important one. I’ve been blogging fairly regularly for almost five years now and I have to say that thanks to some recent technology, over the past two years or so I’ve found my blogging habits have changed quite a bit and I’ve been able to make some changes/improvements to how I blog. I’ve now almost completely moved away from using a desktop for my daily blogging routine and find I do most of my blogging now on a laptop or even occasionally from my iPad.
As a result, I’ve spent some time talking to fellow bloggers and getting input on some more comfortable furniture for doing my blogging. I’ve tried a couple of different things ranging from laptop stands, to chairs/couches or other pieces of furniture, but hadn’t really found anything I could highly recommend to others….until recently.
This past week I had the opportunity to try out a product that isn’t completely new, but that I only recently discovered, called the Sumo Gigantor bag from Sumo Lounge. My research showed that it had been featured in all sorts of magazines and received tons of great reviews from trusted websites, so I decided to give Sumo Lounge a try.
The closest comparison I’ve seen to the Sumo Lounge chairs is probably the Love Sac, which you may have seen for sale in most malls, however Sumo Lounge actually cuts out the middleman allowing them to make their similar bags available at a much more affordable price. These well constructed bean couches aren’t built like the beanbags I grew up with, which was a pleasant surprise. I quickly discovered that the great thing about the Sumo Lounge line of beanbags is that this allows me to comfortably do my blogging in front of my entertainment center or pretty much any room within the house (assuming their is adequate room available).
If you are interested in one for your blogging setup, here are some of the features that the sumo line of chairs boasts:
In addition to blogging I’ve also spent some time looking for other ways to enjoy my new piece of furniture. The logical choice to me seemed to be to put it to the test playing video games. I enjoy online gaming as much as anyone and decided to spend a few hours playing Call of Duty online with my friends. Even though it may not have been reflected in my kill-to-death (KTD) ratio, it didn’t take long for me to appreciate the improved experience I was getting by sitting closer to the television. As a result, I think I can also recommend these Sumo Lounge bags as an excellent gaming chair. Lastly, I’ve also found that I often have to fight my wife for the Sumo Lounge chair as she often wants to use it for movies/Netflix, and then kids have been begging me to let them sleep in it pretty much every night since it arrived.
Overall I have to admit I’m very happy with my new Sumo Gigantor and can confidently recommend the Sumo Lounge line of bean bag chairs to friends and fellow bloggers.
