TOP TEN TUESDAY (#2).

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They have topics set every week and we just have to showcase our answers anyway we want to!
THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE AS A READER/BOOK BLOGGER EASIER.


1. My calendar/planner. 
- keeping my schedule accurate and polished.



2. My bookshelf.
- I arrange most of them according to date of purchase so I know which book goes first.


3. My phone.
- Its like everything-in-one device. I canNOT live without it.


4. Goodreads. 
- I grab book info from here and also post reviews. And I think this is a very essential part of book blogging. You aren't really a book blogger/lover without this, I think.


5. Post its.
 - For book marking or quotes or important parts of the book.


6. Twitter.
 - for updates, book reservations, bookish talks, blogger friends convo, communicating with Authors and Pubs. I can basically live without Facebook but canNOT without Twitter. I can also rant all day over there.


7. Email. 
- Oh goodness, I never thought I would need my email this bad. I use this for blog tours, galley requests, interview requests and other important things as well.


8. My digicam.
- My phone's camera can be a decent source of picture but sometimes, this captures better especially when I have to edit an image. 
 


9. Photoshop. 
- For blog beautification. I just normally do texts because I really don't know how to edit faces or any human part so I settle for whatever I can make and Google stuff I don't know, like for tutorials.


10. MY LAPTOP.
I do everything here. Drafting my reviews, surfing.. name it. Its also very important to be because I have EVERYTHING stored here.
 
Currently, we are experiencing typhoon and flooding here in Manila so am kind of in a panic state at the moment. There's too much moist in my room that I keep checking my unsealed paperbacks. I don't want them to curl. Also, am hungry. Can't go outside to buy anything HAHA..
 
So what about you Blurbies? How's your day been?

  1. I love using post-its! I always mark quotes or pages I like or want to reflect on and it's really handy for writing reviews. Photoshop is really important for me too since it's were I edit my banners, etc. I don't use my actual planner for blog planning but I use iCal. :D

    I use google and my phone for the calendar and it's pretty much become a necessary part of book blogging! Your shelf is awesome, I love how nice and neat it looks!

  5. Good list, I agree that laptops are needed for blogging and I can see how a bookshelf could help as well.

    I do a calendar too, keeps things organized. My TBR is a mess though, I read based on my mood so good luck with that.
