I know some are not particular about their blogging elements but I wanna share to you guys, what are some of the tools that I use and helps me to blog more efficiently.
WordPress – I started with Tumblr 3 years ago till January of this year but I had this difficulty on attaching pictures to my posts because Tumblr just had too much crazy updates and changes. So I moved to WordPress March of 2015.
Iphone5s/Ipad – When shooting for flatlays, views, sceneries and product reviews I usually used my phone because it is easy for me to carry around whenever I go. I also don’t find problems on adjusting the lighting and such, unlike with an SLR.
Nikon D5100 – Honestly, I rarely use it ‘coz I don’t have it most of the time. My fiance is more responsible with using and taking care of it. But whenever we’re together or we have a getaway, I mostly use that one because of course for its high resolution pictures.
IMAGE and FILE STORAGE
Hard Drive – I have one drive in my PC that’s just for my blogging files – photos, fonts and all. My brother insisted about it since I am not good at keeping things like my Flash sticks/drive. I already bought so much of them , all lost.
Flickr – Instead of using WordPress default image/file uploader, I prefer to used Flickr because it gives me HQ photos. It is the easiest way for me to attach pictures everytime I have something to post.
VSCOcam – I know most bloggers and photographers used this app to post process their pictures. Its presets/filters are just so fabulous, hence they give more drama on a photo. I use this most of the time since I usually use my iphone for editing.
Photoscape – For most of my photo editing I have been using this for a few years now. Even before I got my Iphone5s. It’s a freeware for your computer and it is the easiest way for me to edit my pictures with my PC.
Adobe Photoshop – I don’t have much knowledge on how to use this but I also use this one on applying some presets, curves and action packs for my photos.
Lightroom – Since I don’t know how to convert my Raw pictures to Jpeg, I’m using lightroom as an alternative.
HPn Pavillion P6140d Home PC – I can’t afford to buy a laptop for blogging so I use our own PC in the office. Haha! Blogging while working indeed.
How about you guys? What are your blogging must-haves?
PS: Thanks to Janine of A Blissful Blog for encouraging me to post mine. Haha!
