Besides my laptop (HP Notebook) and my camera (Canon DSLR), there are a few items that make my blogging days easier and less stressful when I am working from home.
My cell phone and specifically my 6 Tag app is always open and next to me. I am a very active Instagram user and recently more and more campaigns I work on are also asking for Instagram posts. I seriously love Instagram and hope we will be getting a Windows version soon. 6Tag is pretty great but it can get jittery and will bounce me out more often than not.
The only way I can function and get my brain moving in the morning is with a cup of coffee. I love me my coffee. There is nothing like a great cup of coffee in a cute mug. I have tons of cute mugs but right now my two Anthro mugs are my favorites.
I also love cute notebooks and will usually have two that I use daily to keep all my work and notes. I do NOT use a cell phone app or even my Google calendar. This is what I was doing before and it wasn't helping me because I would just ignore the reminders. Now I note down every single thing that I have due by the week and then by the month, and I am actually a lot more organized now. Besides the notebooks I also have a calendar so I can easily see everything at a glance.
Blogging has got to be the best job I have ever had. It's been a hard road to get to where I actually earn enough to call it a job, but it's been such a nice trip getting here. Being able to do this from home with my things around me and being able to be with my child every day is completely priceless. I can also take these few things with me (except the mug) and work from just about anywhere. I love my job!
