My Blogging Essentials

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.

PLATFORM

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.

CAMERA

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.

PHOTO EDITOR

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.

BLOGGING MEANS

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!

    I use Photoscape most of the time too. Though I have the semi latest version lightroom, I still find Photoscape easy and quick to use. By the way, I so love your photos.

      Easy and quick to use indeed babe! Even if I really wanna learn how to use Lightroom/Photoshop, I don’t have enough time to do so. Anyway, if you like free presets/actions for those, I can share mine. <3

    You’re so lucky coz your office management allows you to use the equipment for personal accounts. Hehehe. Ours has a very strict policy when it comes to personal accounts 😀 Anyways, thanks for sharing your blogging elements especially the Flickr and yes your photo quality is superb! 🙂
