When I first started blogging I was happy just making do with what I had, and I totally believe you don't need to spend any money to be a successful blogger, nor do you need to follow any trends or 'rules' to have good quality content. However, I've been blogging for over a year now and there are a few things I'd really like to have that I think would help improve my blog. First up is:
A Good Camera
My trusty iPhone5 has done me well so far but I'm getting to a point where I really want to improve my photography and there is only so far an iPhone can take me. So the main thing I'd love to get is a good camera. I'm definitely not at a DSLR level but I'm on the hunt for something that will help me learn a bit more about taking good photos, something I know very little about. I also know almost nothing about cameras, so I'll definitely be doing lots of research before I make a purchase, but Panasonic have a great range of digital cameras at a range of prices. This Lumix DMC-LX7 looks like something I'd be looking for.
A Blog Planner
I like to be organised, so a dedicated blog planner is a must to help keep me organised and plan ahead, something that is key in helping me be a better blogger. I love this one from The Bloggers Planner. I think a specific blog planner, rather than a general diary would be really useful in helping to stay organised and motivated.
This is probably a weird one, and definitely not something you need to be a better blogger, but I can't help but feel like other bloggers photos always look so good when they have the added decorative extras, whether its a small plant, a candle or something awesome like this copper '&' sign. They add something to photos when it might be a bit simple without. I know not everyone likes that style, but it's something I think looks really nice so for me it's made it on to this list. These also add something extra to my bedroom, so thats a bonus!
What blogging related products are on your wish list? I'd love to know what you think of mine, and whether you're a fan of the 'adding decorative stuff to your photos' trend? Also if you've got any camera recommendations or things to look out for while I'm doing some research then please let me know!
