I am participating again in a fun link up at Artchoo, my favorite art and design for kids blog! She co-hosts with a bunch of other awesome blogs so head on over and check them out too! The theme for this link up is 6 tools, resources, or supplies you can’t live without. My list of things I can’t live without is much longer than that! In fact I tried to just narrow to 6 tools for blogging but even that list is much longer than 6.
So how about 6 tools I can’t live without for blogging that I feel like sharing today (in no particular order)!
I like going outside. It calms me, I like to make discoveries, and it gives me blogging ideas. Reminds me of the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy open the door and everything is in color!
My zoom lens. I take lots of pictures especially outside and share many of them here. Until I had my camera with the mega zoom I thought all black birds were crows. Not so, there are also Common Grackles, European Starling, Brown-headed Cowbirds, and Red Winged Black birds around here!
It is not what you think! My online library network is called CLAMS (Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing). What would I do without the library and the ability to search and reserve books online?! I don’t know!
I am pretty sure I couldn’t blog without my brain. I think I like the right side best. By the way, adding a knit texture in Gimp is about the closest I have ever come to knitting a hat. Although I can crochet!
I always have a notebook with me. I make to do lists and book lists I make lists of post ideas. I sketch in it too. Right now it is one of those composition notebooks but I am really not picky although I think I like this one!
And lastly, I like using PowerPoint to create illustrations. Why? Because I like how it limits me. The basic shapes and drawing tools force me to keep it quick and simple. I like simple and I TRY not to spend too much time blogging! I ♥ blogging but it comes after family and work.
