Behind The Scenes: Check Out The Desktop of 30 Bloggers

By Daniel Scocco

Posts that have several pictures and links sure take a heck of a time to get composed. I just spent the last two hours on this one…

The result was pretty good though. Last week I asked for the DBT readers to share their desktop, and 30 of you stepped forward (if I missed anyone just let me know). You will find all the desktops below. You can click on most of them to see the image in full size.

My favorite ones are the number two, number four (got love Eric Cartman), and number 20. Check out number 27 as well, that one is granted to boost your productivity.

    Hey Daniel thanks for adding my desktop in there. Its #25 guys.

    Disclosure: That’s not actually the way I keep my desktop. I just arranged the icons like that. I just did that to make some people laugh. lol

    Btw, did you guys get the joke in my icon arrangement? lol

  • LiviuX

    1st one is perfect for mee too. Without the messenger.

  • SATISH

    Hi all….

    And thanks for Daniel for showing my Desktop of DBT ( #24. http://technotip.org — wallpaper with bridge, lamps and water). And I also liked 17th one, as the guy is having the applications on this desktop, which I also use frequently. And the wallpaper is excellent.

  • Patrick

    I’d like to get #2 for my own desktop. How can I get it without the author’s dock, icons, etc?

  • David Hobson

    Some nice looking desktops but i like mine better.

  • roger  

    @patrick some amazing apple wallpapers here including that one! http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/60-most-beautiful-apple-mac-os-x-leopard-wallpapers/

  • Camillo Miller

    Nice!

    But jeez… two hours?

    Not too be too fanboystic but:

    Bulk resize/rename the pics in automator: 5 minutes

    RapidoWrite to quickly align the post,

    And half an hour of wordpress charge and insert image πŸ™‚

    Who doesn’t love #7?! Haha πŸ˜€

    Represent our desktops!

  • SEO Genius

    haha some really good ones there πŸ˜€

  • Dave

    I am surprised with all the all the Vista Screen shots . I thought everyone hated Vista.

  • SE7EN

    mine is on “#7”? coincident or intended? lol πŸ˜›

    I’m really embarrased. mine is the most messy, but trust me, my everyday desktop don’t show any icon πŸ˜› it looks like this imageox.com/image/295408-2.png

    I save many files on desktop(folder) because I’m too lazy. lol
    Desktop folder and My Documents folder shortcut appear in save file dialog, but My Docs is really really full, so I go to desktop. lol

    My desktop (#23) requires a little explanation:

    A good friend of mine tends to say the word “Mongoose” a lot to me, without provocation I might add. Eventually I found a picture online of a Dwarf Mongoose and sent it to him… it happens to me a red head just like me. Now we randomly send the picture around to lighten the mood of a conversation, so I made it my desktop to make me smile.

  • Melvin

    Hehe Man, thanks for the upload and exposure…

  • Richard X. Thripp

    Nice sampling of desktops. I like Dan Craciun’s background photo a lot. Look at that clutter on the one from http://www.se7enize.com though! I could never find anything with that. I try to keep icons off the desktop, because it’s easy to lose arrangement in Windows and it helps me to focus.

  • Patrick

    Thanks for telling me where #2 was. I love that desktop. It’s super clean and polished looking without looking like the cheesy wood backgrounds I have seen in the past. I feel like my computer is in a nice home library. I sometimes like scenic outdoor or space scenes but in reality something like the wood theme makes a lot more sense for a computer screen that is up close in your field of vision.

    Thanks Daniel for including my desktop. My favorite among them is #2 from webmaster-source. Really cool.

  • redwall_hp

    Thanks for including mine (#2), and so close to the top too. πŸ˜€

    I LOL’ed at #7. That’s a lot of icons. Is it hard to find the icon your looking for when you want to launch a program?

    I prefer to keep my desktop nice and clean, as you can tell from my screencap. I keep my most-used apps permanently in my Dock though, as well as Stacks for my Applications folder, Home directory, and Downloads folder.

  • Rick Vaughn

    Lots of Vista in there seems like alot of hypocrites.

  • greven

    Thanks for including mine (#4).

    That wallpaper (Angel) was a gift for my Girlfriend that I’ve made. πŸ™‚

    That is Windows XP.

  • Medical Transcription Blog

    Thanx for including mine, #16.

  • Supermance

    my fave is #6, so clean :), where’s yours daniel ???

  • David Bradley

    Ooh, nice linkbait! I explained the rationale behind my desktop (#27) on Sciencetext.com in an item on how to boost your productivity with a new desktop wallpaper. Feel free to comment and leave a link to this Top 30

  • Rajaie AlKorani

    Those are some really nice icon arrangements, now to steal them!

  • Daniel Scocco

    @David Bradley, this was not a linkbait, more like sharing the linklove with the readers.

  • David Bradley

    Daniel, sorry wasn’t meant as an insult, but point taken linklurv much appreciated πŸ˜‰ (Couldn’t link the actual graphic to my sciencetext item could you?

  • Grant

    Thanks Daniel. You’re clearly a rugby fan – note the spelling of the image πŸ˜‰

    If I’d known mine would go up I would have sent in the wallpaper of one of my sites funny t-shirts. Next time. cheers

  • Grant

    Sorry, number 28.

  • Make Money Blog

    Very cool backgrounds. I am using the very plain, very simple Vista background. Since my Firefox is always open, I never actually see the background so I don’t see much of a reason to change it. Maybe I will one day, but I only ever see the Firefox anyways. πŸ˜›

  • kabin

    wow! its amazing.

  • Samir@Cool SEO Tips

    Wow! Some of the wallpapers are really cool. I don’t really like cartoons though πŸ˜›
    Windows Aero was kind of a divine touch to the PC interface πŸ™‚
