Favorite Home Blog Tools that get the job done!

Ever wonder what tools are best to start a home DIY blog? I’m sharing my favorite home blog tools. Without some, I would never start a blog.

If I didn’t have a MacBook, I would not have started blogging. Previous to blogging, I worked for Mike as a payroll clerk. I don’t remember the type of computer, but it wasn’t user friendly.

I used my severance pay to buy a MacBook Pro. Wow! What a difference and so awesome to use.

After the first week using the MacBook, I knew I wanted to start a blog. And I did.

calligraphy marker

My favorite marker is this Zig calligraphy with two ends. I rarely use the larger end, but the regular size end makes my ugly handwriting pretty. 😊

light with umbrella

We live in a cabin and interior photos are tough. This photography light kit with two umbrellas changed my photos. The angles are endless. I use the umbrellas to mute the light or reflex light. And the best part, my photos are so much brighter.

Note: the kit I purchased is no longer available, but this one is similar in style and price.

roll of double-faced tape

If you like to move things around on your walls, this double-sided tape is the bomb-diggity.

I make lots of decor that hang on the wall. Then I take several pictures for the blog and social media. The decor may hang around, or it may turn into something else. Our walls were beginning to look like we had a bb gunfight. Too many nail holes. But, this tape holds light-weight items and doesn’t damage your paint. Plus, it’s reusable. I wash it with cool water, let dry and reuse it.

Dremel with holder

I dream of a pretty white room with beadboard and lots of thick moldings and trims. A router makes lots of details in wood. But a router and table are big and expensive. If you’re starting woodworking or doing smaller projects, a smaller router is a great place to start. This is my smaller router. The router holder that turns the Dremel into a small router. So fun and creative.

Again note: My router is almost 25 years old. The router holder is almost 20 years old. The links are to similar (and better products) hummm!
