I spot a lot of things through the year that I think would be useful for me as a blogger, so I have decided to put them all together in a blogger’s Christmas Gift Guide and then perhaps drop some heavy hints to Hubby in the next couple of weeks.
Canon G7X – I have heard very good things from other bloggers about the Canon G7x. This has been on my wish list for some time now and I would really like to be able to buy one before our next holiday to Disney World in April.
Blog Planner – I like lists and organisation when I am working, and I work best when I have a list to follow. I also like to be able to cross things off my list rather than delete them from a digital document so paper organisation is definitely the way to go for me.
Diary – Attempting to be organised with a child, dog, part time job, house and a blog, I NEED a diary. If I don’t write things down when I hear about them then they’re gone forever. I also like to use my diary as my blogging calendar to keep track of what needs to be done.
Colouring Book – I’m a bit late to the game with adult colouring books, but there are times when I just need to switch off. Colouring is very relaxing, so I am looking forward to taking some time out of my head space.
Colouring pencils – Miss A has plenty of pencils that I could borrow, but this is my colouring book, so I’ll need my own set of pencils right?
Tripod – I have an interest in growing my Youtube channel in the next year, and as yet I still just use my iPhone without a tripod. I am hoping that if I upgrade my camera then a tripod will really help out for some of the videos as well.
Timer – I am easily distracted, especially when it comes to social media, Pinterest in particular. I need a timer on my desk so I can work in smaller chunks to achieve more instead of getting lost in a huge amount of tasks.
Desk – Talking of my desk, mine at the moment is very small. I appreciate I am lucky enough to have a space in our house to have a desk, but I would like to stretch out a little more when I work. My desk is very cluttered as it’s so small so I don’t think my productivity is as good as it could be.
Chair – The chair I use leaves me with a sore lower back after a few hours, so as I spend so much time at my desk, it was obvious a new chair would be on my wish list too.
Notebooks – I am a sucker for stationery, and notebooks in particular. I think this is where Miss A gets it from. I have three notebooks on my desk at the moment, and often buy new ones.
