As a blogger and content creator, there a few gadgets that you just have to have. I’ll admit that some items are just for kicks but most of them are definitely MUST Haves! In this post, I’ll share with you the items that I use the absolute most!
Daily, I use my iPhone to begin drafts for my blog, take photos, and keep up with all of my social media and emails. I really depend on iPhone drastically to keep me connected.
For more important posts (Paid/Sponsored) and YouTube video editing I use my HP Touch screen laptop. I love this laptop because it’s super powerful, has 1TB of storage, and it’s super easy transport. I take it almost everywhere.
When editing my YouTube videos, I use Cyberlink Power Director. This software is very affordable, easy to use, and allows you to create high quality videos in all formats. I highly recommend this software, I’ve been using it for years.
FILMING & PHOTOS
Though I use my iPhone for instagram photos when I’m about town, I primarily prefer my Sony a500 camera for my pictures. I love having high quality pics for both my blog and instagram. Without question, I always use my Sony a5000 when I’m creating sponsored/collaboration posts.
I love the Sony a5000 because of its compact size, making it easy to travel with, and because it takes super crisp photos and videos. This camera is worth the investment.
As far as my lighting setup, I use ring lights. Ring lights are best for filming situation because they are easy to move about my home, affordable, and they produce the perfect amount of light for filming and photography needs.
Though I have used umbrella lights in the past and they worked pretty good too. As I grew as a blogger, (you will too) I progressed to ring lighting.
I hope this post helps you on your road to becoming a blogger or youtuber!
