Proficient bloggers need to remain online all day, every day which implies they need something versatile, so they have it alongside them. PCs or Netbooks are the answer to this issue.

You don’t have to purchase a costly PC to begin your blogging venture. An inexpensive PC with essential particulars is all that you need (except if your work needs some overwhelming work like designs, video preparing and so forth).

Our favored PC/netbook organizations: Apple, Dell, and Asus.

External Hard-Drive

We feel that an external hard-drive is the most significant gadget after a workstation which each expert blogger ought to have.

You may feel that there are bunches of cloud administrations accessible on the web which offer free extra room. Yet, stealing your valuable information is just a single secret word away which implies any programmers can, without much difficulty, hack your information or erase it.

Our favorite external hard drive brands: Seagate, WD, and Transcend.

Remote Router or Data Card

All things considered, how might we consider blogging without the Internet?

If you have been blogging for some time, you more likely than not experienced a terrible web day if you didn’t have an internet connection.

Having a decent web switch is an unquestionable requirement. Alongside it, back-up web access concerning the information card is likewise significant.

Cell Phone

No doubt proficient bloggers invest a large portion of the energy in the house or their office on blogging. Yet, at the same time, you need a specialized gadget to speak with your customers and, at some point, with your readers in a hurry.

A cell phone is a phone with access to a cellular radio system so it can be used over a wide area, without a physical connection to a network; a mobile phone.

It’s great to have your versatile number on your blog as it will leave a positive impression in the brain of your blog reader. You can likewise go for an advanced mobile phone if it accommodates your financial limit.

For marking and mingling, you can introduce advanced mobile phone applications like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Foursquare, Pinterest, Skype, Fring, and more.

Wrist Watch

To the ones who think that blogging is a part of their lives, they can find themselves blogging anywhere, any time! So, for them, it is essential to tie a watch on their wrist and set their lives free.

A watch can really manage their schedule without you taking too many gadgets along. A watch should be your best friend while you aim to see yourselves a renowned blogger.

Our favorite watch: Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Computerized Cam, Handycam, and Mic

Do you ever go to meet bloggers offline?

As a blogger, it’s dependably a smart thought to make most out of these occasions and snap pictures and record recordings of the occasion.

This resembles making free social media accounts for your internet-based life profiles, for example, Facebook and even YouTube.

Particularly, if you comprehend the significance of video blogging, having a helpful cam and voice recorder will be valuable.

However, video recording on a laptop is simple with a program like Camtasia and an inbuilt mic, yet for the disconnected occasion, the helpful cam will make a major distinction.

More Smart Gadgets

Articoolo, the writing robot, is also one of the smart gadgets that could help bloggers.

Blog Widgets and Plugins

Updated Information:

There are many blog widgets you can add that streamline your ability to run your blog. For instance, there are blogger calendar widgets.

You can install plugins to help your website run smoothly as well.

To add a widget: In WordPress, hover over Appearance in your left sidebar. Then click on Widgets.

To add a plugin: In your WordPress dashboard, you will see “Plugins” on the left. Hover and then click Add New.

Popular Widgets

If you’d like recommendations, here is a list of popular widgets:

  • the clock that counts down to evens like product launches
  • social media icons
  • human calendar showing photos of people
  • blogroll – a list of blogs you recommend
  • email subscription form
  • recent comments
  • visitor statistics

Popular Plugins

Popular WordPress Plugins:

  • Jetpack (Free)
  • Lara’s Google Analytics (Free)
  • Lucky WP Table of Contents (free)
  • Rank Math SEO (Free)
  • WordPress Editorial Calendar (free)
  • Optimole Image Compressor (premium)
  • WP Table Builder

Plugins can slow your site. If you could only choose one plugin on the list, which would you choose?

I would choose Rank Math SEO. Here’s why:

I optimize my posts so they have a chance to rank on Google. Rank Math reminds me if I’ve already used the keyword and even suggests keywords and internal links. Rank Math reminds me if I forget to fill out my meta description and if my URL is too long. Rank Math tells me if my keyword is in my post too often or not often enough. I couldn’t blog without Rank Math.

WP Table Builder

Blogging guru Adam Connell recommended WP Table Builder, a free plugin, and I’ve had fun making tables every since. You can use the color palette to have the colors in the table match your theme.

I prefer the tables to the tables that come with WordPress. I find the dimensions are bigger and the table is more easily customizable.

In addition to making standard tables, you can make horizontal lists.

People Seeking Anonymity

People Without Zip Codes

Gift Givers

    Love this and I recently have been trying to balance this better too. The past few weeks I have been spending way less time on social media and technology in general and it has been so refreshing.
