Happy Thursday guys and welcome back.
In today’s blogpost I want to share a little peek in to my blogging life. So Blog Tips: What I use for blogging. Only the things that I use after you find out your niche and your blogging name. I want to share the technical things in a different blog post.
Let’s get started:
A GOOD LAPTOP
Of course you don’t have to buy a MacBook like every blogger has. I bought my MacBook Air like two years ago after some advice from some friends. I know it’s an investment but it was totally worth it. Also if you travel a lot, I would recommend to buy a MacBook air. It’s totally not heavy and easy to bring with you.
A note book is very helpful. It’s easy to write all your creative ideas or when you are traveling and you got some inspiration you could write it down in your own note book, in case you forget it. Or in case you are out of inspiration just take your note book and take a look what you didn’t used on your blog before.
TO DO LIST
Okay I’ve to admit I’m really a sucker in making some to do lists. Sometimes I use the app Wunderlist. Which is really useful, it’s also possible to connect it with your mobile phone. But believe me if you have a busy day and you have a to do list life is getting less stressful.
I thinks this is probably the most important thing about this article. The best tip that I got before I started my blog and was searching for a good camera. It’s all about the lens not about the body. So here it is. What I use right now for my outfit photos is the Canon EOS600D. In the beginning of my blog I used the standard lens that was delivered with my body. That was the Canon EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 lens. It was really perfect for in the beginning. When I met Wendy and we did a couple of shoots immidiatly I saw that my background was more blurry a.k.a. bokeh. (that out of focus almost watercolor effect in the background). A few weeks later I bought the Canon EF 50MM 1.8 lens. Of course it’s not only about the lens you have to change some setting on your camera as well. I always shoot in the AV mode, change diafragma to 1.8 and you background is blurry and don’t forget to change the light settings some times. Also a little note I’m not an expert but I learned things myself and from other bloggers.
Well I hope you learned something about this blog tip article. This everything I use at the moment for blogging. Next week I want to give some tips on how to start a blog. Such as a good blog name and which platform you should use for blogging.
So later this day I’m off to meeting up with Frederique from FabLeFrique and we’re gonna visit some press days at PR agencies.
Till next time
