This is one of those cases of do as I say and not as I do because as soon as I leave London I forget that I was planning to blog but I thought I would share a few tips to make everything that little bit easier if you are traveling this summer, wether for a weekend or a few months (or even for a few hours). Of course, you could choose to ignore this and have a short break from blogging (having prescheduled beforehand) but I’m never organised enough and I love that you can produce different content.
Schedule before you leave
I really believe that staying scheduled always helps wether you are blogging on the go or not but it’s even more important if you’re going to be away from. It allows you to make sure you have the amount of content you want without have to waste time planning whilst away. Along with scheduling blog posts don’t forget to pre-take a couple of Instagram photos just incase you don’t have time (Ideas here), schedule your Twitter and Facebook page using something like Buffer or Hootsuite.
Stick to a plan
This part is obvious but tricky, I’d recommend planning exactly when you are going to be blogging and taking photos.
Make the most out of your time
Unless my trip away involves me driving I like to make the most of my time and blog or edit a video on the way there, I just make sure I pack some headphones. Even if I don’t have internet on the go I will simply edit photos or type my blog post out onto a word document ready to go as soon as I’m connected again.
In order to keep me blogging on the go I like to pack; my laptop (MacBook), camera (Canon S120 and Canon 700D), portable charger, iPhone, Memory Cards x4, all the chargers, portable light (only for filming), hard drive (if I’m away for a week+) and my Gorilla Pod. Along with that I take a notebook, timetable and even a marble sheet of paper just in case I don’t find any surface nice enough to take product shot on.
Let see how my blogging goes for the next few days, hopefully I’ll be able to stick to it too
