This week's IFB Project asks bloggers to share what is in their blogging tool kit. I've never given much thought to the tools I use for blogging. A computer and a camera would seem to sum up the tools of the trade, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that my tool kit consists of more than what I thought.
The most basic tool for any blogger is a computer. I am a proud owner of a MacBook. This is my second one, so I like to think of myself as a dedicated user, although I know there are still plenty of functions I don't utilize.
While an SLR camera is on my wish list, my current camera is the Canon PowerShot SD780IS. I like it because it is small and red and has pretty good zoom capabilities.
My Blackberry Curve may not be as smart as the new phones on the market (how I wish I had an iphone), but it is great for checking email and updating twitter and facebook, which is all I do anyways...
I bought a Flip Mino HD a few years ago with the intent of making fashion videos documenting outfits and such. Sadly, this hasn't happened yet, but the camera did come in handy for my cousin's wedding.
I am including products to review in my tool kit because I love reviewing products on my blog - especially beauty products. A Lime Crime lipstick and an Orly nail lacquer stand next to my laptop.
A notebook and pen are helpful for keeping track of ideas and posts. I like inexpensive spiral bound notebooks because they are flexible and are not too precious to rip pages out of them. I've taken to calling my notebook my "blog log".
Finally, books and magazines are a constant source of inspiration. Whether I am thumbing through an issue of Lula or perusing The Fashion File, I am constantly on the lookout for something to blog about.
What makes up your blogging tool kit?
