Three Blogging Gadgets

If you were to get electronic devices for blogging, get three basic types of gadgets:

  • A Laptop
  • A Digital Camera
  • A Internet capable cell Phone

Optionally, get a bluetooth connector to hook up your laptop and cellphone. Personally, I use these:

  • A Compaq Presario B1957TU – This small yet powerful laptop comes at only 1.79kg. It has Windows Vista Basic and is a Core Duo. I honestly would’ve preferred a Sony Vaio but that was way beyond my budget. Don’t get too small a laptop (they keyboard would be too small).
  • A Simple Canon PowerShot 3.2 Megapixel camera – a simple point and shoot camera. A Rebel XTi would be fine too if Iknew how to professionally use it. So far my little camera is ok.
  • Nokia E61 – Just the other day, I bought this phone to complete my collection. I’ve been hunting around for a decent cell phone and was looking at a Sony Ericsson website for one. Luckily a friend suddenly wanted to sell her phone. I checked it out and liked it. Two things I like about this phone – 3G and Bluetooth.

Just take pictures, upload them on your laptop, write articles related to the pictures, use your cellphone as a modem and connect to the Internet wherever you are. Mobile Blogging – you gotta love it.

Now if you sell items on your website/blog, you can pretty much do the same thing – take pictures, hook up up your digicam, laptop and cellphone, upload everything on the the net and boom! Simple online brochure.
