I love Christmas time and I have been publishing articles around the blogosphere hoping my husband will see them and get a few hints. After all anything would be better than the “Bug Zapper” he bought me last Christmas, or the Vege Steamer the time before. (I hate contraptions that take longer to clean than they do to use) Anyway I do love tech gadgets, as most of you probably do, but the bonus for every bloggers wish list is that some of these goodies are also legitimate tax deductions for bloggers.
Here's my list of gadgets that are probably also on every bloggers wish list:
A Mobile Phone With WiFi Tethering
This is exactly what I need. No more USB dongles hanging from my laptop! I need something like the Samsung Galaxy, the latest version of course, where it can act as a wireless connection for all my other gadgets. I could use it for my tablet that I am going to get the Christmas, my laptop, and anything else I want to connect to the Internet. The other great thing about this smart phone is that it has a 8 mp camera with built-in LED flash and also takes fantastic video. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 comes with a Dual Core 1.2 GHz processor, which enables seamless recording and playback of Full HD video. This outdoes my good old video camera and is no where near as bulky.
I can think of 1 million things to do this. I can take photos for my blog, I can make YouTube videos when I'm out and about, and I can also get an Internet connection from it.
Snazzy Microphone For Videos and Podcasts
Yes I need a new microphone as I broke my old one and have now resorted to a crappy headset type that I found in a box of junk in my office cupboard. I think having the right tools for this blogging business is very important and having crackling audio in your pod casts and videos is definitely not very professional. I know Ileane has a really big microphone that sounds really cool. What is that again?
A Tablet – Not The Medicine Kind!
Had to mention that, sorry guys. My husband likes to play jokes on me and he will probably buy me a packet of headache tablets. But I really want one of those Android tablets. One will do me nicely. Answering comments, checking websites, updating plugins, and more. I know all of you Mac users will be groaning about the Android aspect but I am in the business of Windows, Google, and so on so I need to stick with them.
Unfortunately if I do not get one I will have enter one of those cool blogging contests to win one! 🙂 Then, knowing my luck they will give me an Apple iPad!
Some Amazing Blogging Software – Every Bloggers Wish List
I know this one does not exist yet but I would like blogging software that will do all my work for me! I want to simply press a button and it will find a niche for me, research all the keywords and competitors, and set up the website for me with the best category names and the best theme for the niche. Then I want it to add content, only the best of course, and then go out and promote the content through social media and guest blogging. I also want it to build me a fantastic reputation by commenting and helping others become successful, actually I also will need everything on this WordPress website checklist, and possibly a little bit more. Do you think I am asking too much?
A New Beaut Computer System
I have a serious problem with technology because I love it. I talk about it, I write about it, and I live with it. Unfortunately, I do not like fixing it any more. Those days are over and when a computer in my house when a computer has a problem, I immediately store it away, as the thought of fixing computers haunts me. I have done my fair share of computer building, computer repair, and computer sales. I am definitely over it! This is why I need new beaut computer system. I have been running my blogging business on $1000 computer system (box only) that I had a friend build about two years ago, (I couldn't even bare to build one for myself). Although I have a new i7 laptop, I always use the desktop computer for my main tasks. This is why I need a new computer. After all, I am running my entire business from it.
I know we can all make do with what we have and hardly need to spend a cent on our blogging businesses but I know these things would be every Bloggers wish list.
P.S Please tweet and Google Plus this article as I am hoping my husband will stumble across it and buy me something decent this year!
