Friend Friday: The Ins and Outs of My Blog

 This week is a short Q and A of what I am packing under my technology belt. It has helped me to blog efficiently but not necessarily glamorous. I am throwing in some more Baltimore live show pictures for good measure as I am sure you can't get enough of me and my friends dancing around and hot guys in bands. Also, I promise to be back to my frequent blogging self soon. (Sickness is a wicked mofo.)

1. What technology do you use in blogging? I have two computers: a desktop and a laptop. Yes I am a little obsessed with technology and the internet. My friend just told me the other day that I am about 75 percent internet. My camera is a NikonD5000, it is the new cub to the litter of gadgets. My phone is a Droid Eris which I have a love and hate relationship with. I don't really like blogging from my phone. I think it is fussy and time consuming. I also have a scanner that will make its debut soon on the blog. I found it at my old apartment and so it is pretty old but it does the trick!

2. What computer and online technology do you use? My laptop is a trusty dell. It is so practical it is far from cute but it endures all the wear and tear of me as both a student and a blogger. My desktop is a Sony Vaio, it is awesome! While my football team was playing I used to watch games on it. And when designers had live streams I watched in hi def! It is a blessing to have since I refuse to get cable television.

3. What is your process for taking pictures? All of my outfit posts are done with me and my camera as well as the nifty self timer option. I borrowed a remote once and it made me feel even more awkward in front of the camera so I ditched it. All of the party photos are shot by myself. I am hoping to invest in more lenses in the coming months or an adapter. Then the fun really begins.

4. When it comes to backdrops for your photos what do you consider? Do you scout locations or shoot the same spot daily? This will sound a little contrived but I go on an inspiration by inspiration basis. My outfit posts are fairly cut and dry because I only find that to be a very small percentage of my blog. 

5. If you could splurge and get one new piece of equipment what would you be buying? This is tough. I would probably get a bunch of lenses for my camera and a better printer/scanner. Definitely a Mac laptop with enough gigs to keep all my photos on it although I wouldn't. Oh, and I would get a couple more external hard drives as I have a lot of video projects coming up and have no place to store them! 

Life is beautiful, let's share a little.

It's always cool to see what sort of tech other people use for their blogs or just in general really. I hope you start feeling better soon.
