My Blogging Essentials

Hey guys! So this post is a semi- continuation of the last post I had weeks ago. This time, I will share with you the things that I always use for blogging.

Let me start by telling you guys that I do not write posts whenever I don't feel like it. I never force myself to write if I'm not in the mood. This might affect the quality of the blog post that I will be sharing with you- and I do not want that to happen. Usually, since writing blog posts require lots of time and effort, I do not write when I am busy with classes.

There are a lot of things to consider when writing a blog post. Will you add photos? Videos? Infographics? Hence a need for gadgets. Though these things are not required when writing blogs, these multimedia will add to the beautification of your post.

I will share with you guys the things I always have to have prepared before writing blog posts.

1. List of Blog Post Ideas

Usually, when I have classes, my blog posts are not scheduled. I only am able to follow blog schedules during school vacations, long holidays and the likes. So whenever I feel like writing a blog post to share with you guys, I always look through my Blog Post Masterlist. In this list, I have all the blog ideas that I may or may have not posted already. I just choose whatever my brain feels like writing about. Actually, I am planning to start a blog series. I am just in the process of choosing what specific series to write about. Any ideas? Comment them down!

2. Photos

Before I write for a specific topic, I always make sure that I have photos for it. I post my own photos on my blog post but there are times when I do not. But I do give credits where credits are due. Blogger code!

3. Camera

Of course, if I do not have this one, I wouldn't be able to take my own photos for my blog. Before I own a Canon 60D camera and this new year, my dad bought me my new baby, this new Fujifilm X-T20. This camera is perfect for bloggers like me because it is very handy. This camera is not that heavy compared to the previous one that I own. And of course, specs wise, this camera is better than the other one. But of course, it's not about the camera, its all about how the photographer takes photographs. I use my camera to take videos as well. I do vlogs too but not that often compared to blogging.

4. Laptop

This one is a given. Of course I won't be able to write blogs without my laptop. I am using a Macbook Pro 13-Inch Retina which my parents gave me for my 18th birthday. This baby is now 2 years old and its is still working perfectly fine. I also use my laptop for editing videos. I particularly use iMovie for my vlogs. I also use my laptop to reply to emails from sponsors/collaborators.

5. Phone

When I do not bring my camera, my cellphone rescues me. I just had this new Huawei Nova 2i with dual camera specification perfect for getting crisp photos for my blog. Through my phone, I get to be contacted by brands too. This is where I would reply to emails, calls or texts for sponsorships. 

You actually do not have to have all of these, laptop for me is enough but photos as add ons will definitely bring your blog to places. Do you think I've missed something? Comment them down!
