Have you ever thought about starting a blog? Blogging is a lot of fun but takes a lot of work. There are a few Blogging Essentials you’ll need as a blogger. The good news is you might already have these things at home to help get you started.
My List of Blogging Essentials
Laptop: This is at the top of my list for a reason. A computer/laptop is a must for blogging! I prefer a laptop so I can take it on the go or carry it around the house. This is essential for a Mommy blogger like myself. With kids running around, there is no home office I can hide in! I need to be where my kids are 🙂 Sometimes I blog in the kitchen as they are playing.
iPhone: This is also a top priority. I use my phone for blogging constantly! I’m not actually blogging on it but using apps or other resources to help me get things finished. I love the Notes section to jot down ideas or stories to blog about. I also use my phone for social media and to read other blogs while I’m out! I couldn’t survive without my iPhone!
Camera: Now I do use my camera on my phone pretty often but if I need a really good picture, it has to be on a good camera. I’m a Nikon girl but I know Canon is great too. I prefer a smaller DSLR so that I can carry it around daily and while I’m out with my kids. I’m not an expert at all, but know the basics. I can tell a HUGE difference in pictures and there is nothing better than a good camera picture! If you’re in the market for a nice camera, shop refurbished. You can get a great deal.

Sticky Notes: Who doesn’t love sticky’s? These are great for note taking/jotting down ideas. I also use them to help for reminders and things I need to get done! I love new sticky notes!
Planner/Calendar: I’ve just started using a blogging planner and it’s been great. You can write down your blogging schedule of posts and keep track of things you need to get accomplished daily like social media link ups and other blogging things.
