I use a paper planner, but as a blogger, I am very techno-savvy.
How can a Luddite in the world of planners love to tweak HTML and edit YouTube videos?
And what I am willing to spend (you KNOW it's not much) to do so?
I actually use only two technological tools to do all of my blogging.
I use a smart phone to take pictures. It's nothing fancy like this one. It's just an old Samsung. The only picture I could find was the one with a link to the case that I use, since the phone is so old.
I sync it with a free program called Mighty Text, which I highly recommend (not a sponsored review, but just my opinion).
Once the pictures are on my computer, I can download and play with them.
The one place that I did splurge is on my tablet/laptop, a Surface Pro 3 (with a purple keyboard).
I love my Surface for planning and for blogging.
It has the video camera that I use for YouTube. In OneNote 2013 (free software from Microsoft), it lets me create daily dockets, edit pictures for blogging, and write directly on the screen with a pen! (Click the links in the above paragraph to check it out.)
The Surface (with keyboard) ran about $1,000, and now you can even get a Surface Pro 4.
I use it for everything and it is still going strong, with no problems, a year later.
The pen is used as a cursor, which is great for editing tiny bits of HTML. It allows me to color in little imperfections in my photos or add new fonts.
Still, my day planner is my go to for thinking. Even with the ability to write directly on the surface of my computer, something about the scratch of paper calls to my soul.
