Being a blogger requires quite a few tools if you are to create the high quality content that you need. I have written a post about my blogging tech kit.
I bought this over a year ago – Apple laptops are my go to products. I have only had a PC laptop once and it was horrific so Apple is here to stay. I was going to go for the Macbook because I loved the look of it and fancied the idea of having the matching laptop and iPhone but I was advised by one of the staff that if I wanted to do video editing that the Macbook would not cut it. I am happy with this Macbook Pro; it is a lot lighter than my old one and I can do everything I want on it.
iPhone 7 Plus
This is the first time I have ever had an iPhone and I can see that I have been missing out. I have been using Nokia – now known as the Windows phones for a few years now. While they functioned pretty well, it was hard to find decent apps as many developers missed out this platforms when they created their products. I am not a fan of Samsung phones, I had the Samsung III and hated it so I knew my next phone would be the iPhone. Everything just slipped into place with this phone, the keyboard was easy to use, there were plenty of apps to choose from and I can synch everything with my laptop. The camera is really amazing and allows me to take some fantastic shots. The only downside is that when a new model is released the old version slows down.
Talking of cameras this is the one I take with me when I am going somewhere special – like a press day, restaurant or a blogger’s event. I do all my filming on this camera too which I edit using iMovie which is very easy to use. I have written a full review of the Olympus Pen which you can read on the link above.
I never leave my home without this. I was gifted it at the Vuelio Awards last year and it has been a lifesaver. It charges my phone within an hour when my battery goes flat.
Sometimes you need a bit of background noise when you are creating content and when you are in a public place you can’t exactly blare out your music. That is where headphones come in and particularly wireless ones where you are not attached to your laptop or phone. These ones by Skullcandy are pretty cool, you can read the review I wrote about it which is above.
