Top blogging tools to make your life easier

Recently I shared a day in my life as a travel blogger and mentioned a few things that I do as part of my routine. Scheduling social media posts, editing pictures and making my blog posts easier to find in Google searches came up several times. In order to do all these things I have an online tool box and some essential blogging tech. Here I thought I’d share some of these blogging tools as useful reading for anyone thinking of starting a blog or who is looking for ways to manage their blog workload.

Blogging tools: my top blogging tech

Let’s get the pricey, one-off purchase stuff out of the way right at the beginning. Some of these things I already had and other things I bought especially to help me run the blog and create content.

On and offline tools for bloggers and digital marketing professionals to help make creating blog and social media content easier - and who doesn't want that #travel #blogging #tools #kit #howto #guide #travelblog #marketingtools #socialmedia

Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera

We’ve had this camera body for years, so this wasn’t a special blogging purchase. I’ve got to admit that it’s hard to use the camera properly while herding the kids, but I do love the quality of the images and the ability to zoom in without compromising image quality.

I have a Nikon DX VR 18-140mm lens that gives me a good zoom range. Apologies if you are a camera expert – I’m clearly not! So do visit a good camera shop and talk through the options with someone who knows their stuff.

iPhone X

This is my most used piece of blogging tech, particularly while we are travelling. It’s what I use to jot down ideas, make videos, take pictures, do research and manage my social media when I’m not at my desk.

I have a terrible habit of dropping my iPhones so when I bought the iPhone X* in October last year I also got an Otterbox phone protector*. It’s doing a great job so far.
