    Can Blogging destroy your neck?

    I have been blogging a lot recently and have noticed that my neck is getting stiff. I am trying to find the best position to use a MacBook to Blog so that I do not end up with neck pain. I realized how stiff my neck and shoulders had become when I went for a massage the other day and now I am thinking about how to Blog i.e. what is the best way to blog for long periods of time without destroying your neck? Can someone recommend some neck exercises to relive neck tension after blogging?

    I do most of my writing from a laptop and a comfy chair with a good head support, and I find almost no tension in my neck and shoulders - however, my butt certainly knows how long I have been typing!
    Shrugging your shoulders towards your head and neck helps a lot, and self massage works wonders to relieve tension.

    I've been working with computers for years and spend way too much time in front of them (and at home as well!). So I can empathize with your neck pains. I normally find I need to get up and walk around for a moment here and then these days though and it just releases all the tension. I make sure I always need to get another drink at some point, or something to eat. It gets me up and about and gives me a reason to have a break, otherwise I'll sit and stare at the screen for too long.

    I actually played around with my workspace to make it as ergonomic as possible -- I've been freelancing full-time+ for the last several years -- and I start the day with an exercise routine. Lately that routine has been yoga, but I've found that anything that's a good combination of cardio/flexibility really helps the aches and pains. Whenever I start to feel stiffness in my neck or shoulders, I stop and stretch them out a bit (sit up straight, clasp your hands behind your back if you have to, and alternate laying an ear on each shoulder, stretching your chin toward the ceiling, laying the ear on the shoulder while looking at the opposite hip, and ear on the shoulder while looking at the ceiling toward the opposite side -- this covers all the neck muscles). If I forget to exercise or "get too busy," then I generally start to get headaches. Sometimes there's a bit of upper torso/neck soreness too, but not so much since I've made every imaginable adjustment for my own comfort.
