I never realized how much stuff I would accumulate as a blogger! Or, I should say, how much stuff I needed to buy. When I first started out, I knew I needed a website and a design. Over time, I upgraded my logo, switched to WordPress, and the software purchasing began! From Photoshop to Screenflow, I needed to have a fun applications available to help streamline my blog life. I then discovered the world of DSLR cameras, and a very expensive hobby began!
However, all of these items were necessary in my journey to self-employment. I worked in marketing for years, and I then realized I could work at home while holding a similar position. It was a dream come true! Now I’ve transitioned into working with brands on a variety of campaigns, and I am so grateful that all of my “stuff” helped me reach the next level. If you want to upgrade your gear, here are some suggestions!
I decided to use Shopswell to show you my favorite blogging items since it’s a fun and easy way to discover products that you love. You can make and share lists and track and save your favorite products. Shopswell is a community of friends shopping smarter together. Shopswell shoppers share their favorite finds with lists that are curated by a theme. Follow shoppers who like the same things that you do and share your lists!
I love the price tracking tool, especially for gadgets like these, since the price can fluctuate on cameras and lenses almost daily! It’s also helpful to read reviews and recommendations created by other shoppers. Find out what other people think before you buy.
Did you know that prices can drop up to 30% on an item in a week? Who has time to watch for the lowest prices? If you’re talking about a phone or flat screen TV, that can be a pile of dough. Let Shopswell track prices and alert you when it’s time to buy!
Shopswell is like Pinterest for shopping. Only better. If you’ve ever clicked on a cool product from your Pinterest feed, only to be disappointed when you’re not able to buy it or even find that product on the link that opens, you’ll love knowing that Shopswell only features products available for sale and even shows you the current price!
