Every blogger works differently when it comes to running their blog and have different perspective on what their essentials are. When I first started blogging, I didn’t use some of these. I have changed and I am constantly learning and evolving. I thought I would share my 5 blogger essentials that allow me to run my blog.
1. My Camera
My current camera that I am using is the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS. This was my first proper camera and it has been great to get to learn about photography. I love being able to experiment with photographs and to edit them. I am hoping to learn more about photography, so I can develop more.
2. My Notebook
I like to use my notebook to draft blog posts, I love to put pen to paper before I type. I have done it this way ever since I started blogging, this way works for me. I also use it to plan my blogging schedule for the upcoming month. This helps me stay organised and to be able to post on my blog consistently. If you want to read about these notebooks from Say Nice Things you can read the posts here and here.
3. My Planner
I use my planner to help keep track of when blog posts are going live, but also to include work I need to do on my blog and I can go through and check them off as well as usual planning. This means I stay organised and do not get overwhelmed and miss posting dates. If you want to see how I use my planner you can read that post here.
4. My Phone and My Macbook
I include these together because I use them for the same things. Uploading content to social media, my blog, for networking with others and for editing. Having everything on my phone means if I am travelling or not at home, I can still access all my content and social medias through my phone to promote my blog.
5. Photography Props
I know this probably will not be on everyone’s essentials list but I like to experiment and make the photographs as creative as I can. I like shopping for blog props too, any excuse to shop really ha ha! Photography props I use are: wooden hearts, wooden stars, wrapping paper, prints to name a few.
These are my 5 blogger essentials. In an upcoming post I will be sharing my go-to apps and websites for running my blog which is why I have not included these in my essentials list.
What are some of your blogging essentials? I’d love to hear in the comments.
