I love blogging but in the past there have been times when it’s hard for me to sit down and get posts written. A lot of times it’s because I have a lot going on in my life and it gets tricky to make time to sit down at my desk and get writing. Recently I’ve found ways to comfortably blog on the go!

Typically creative have certain environments in which they can get the most work done, and for me that is when I ‘m alone in the comfort of my own home usually at my desk (though sometimes I try to make it work on the couch but my power cord is too short). What what if I’m struck with inspiration while I’m about and about?
Usually I’ll have a little Moleskin notebook with me but I recently lost mine/ it took up space in my tiny purse/ I didn’t use it as much as I would like so I’m trying out typing my brainstorms out in the Notes app in my phone. I can pull them up whenever, it won’t take up any more space, and I can email it to myself or others if I need to.
As far as getting posts written, I usually would type them out and edit in Word on my computer and then copy and paste into WordPress. It’s a lot of steps and it kept me confined to blogging on my computer. However, I recently discovered the Spell Check button on WordPress so now I’m free to type up drafts and edit directly in WordPress. It cuts down on effort AND it opens me up to be able to utilize the WordPress app on my phone. Now I can type of drafts on the go when I have a few spare minutes, edit posts, schedule, whatever I need (short of adding photos…I still like to do that on my computer).
I’m just now starting to utilize these tools but it’s nice that my blogging process is evolving to be more efficient and travel friendly, which will be helpful while I’m in school since I’ll be super busy and won’t have as much time to sit down and write. On top of that my new blogging tools make me feel free to be creative at any point in the day and not just during the times I can pencil it in.
