I love blogging and Vlogging it takes time but its so rewarding.I have been Vlogging since about 2007 with a small Logitech webcam .And I have been blogging for about 5 years on and off.My blogging really took off when I switch to WordPress from Blogspot where I only had 23 followers.
I found you need a few item to blog laptop or P.C and small Netbook or Smart Phone when you want to blog on the go.
I currently have White Toshiba Laptop for blogging at home and blog on my small Acer netbook when I am out and about and travelling abroad.I also have two mouses as I hate the trackpad on a Laptop.
My small Acer netbook ,for blogging on the go ,is quite old at 6 years old but I do love it. Its so lightweight and small .It fixes nicely into my handbag.But I need to find a new one soon.Its a bit broken.I also have a small Sony W830 camera for taking pictures on the go and a Nikon DSLR D5100 camera for better pictures.
I love all these items but I will have to replace my laptop and netbook soon as there getting old.I would love a Ipad Mini for blogging and a smart phone but we will see.
All these items have serve me well over the years.
What items do you use for blogging and Vlogging? Please share on social media and comment .
I live without a smartphone people in the twenty first century.Because I just cant afford to buy a decent one. I have so much to buy right now , an smart phone isnt on my list of priorities. I brought two cheap ones in the past an Alcatel Popstar, I broken the screen within two months and Alcatel refuse to fix it for free.I then brought the upgrade Alcatel pop 4 but had to pawn it when I cant afford electricity .Hard time folks.
The most annoying thing for me about these cheap smart phone is the battery power just didn’t last ,more then six hours when surfing the net or using Whatsapp. I was constantly carrying a portable battery pack instead .whioch was annoying.And I also had too buy a spare battery for my Popstar or the power would be gone in six hours.And I would have a dead phone which I wouldnt use until charge up again.
The Alcatel phones were lovely and cute but the battery power made the phones a waste of money and the camera on the phone weren’t that great even
I realise I was only after a smart phone for Whatsapp ,surfing the internet on the go ,taking photos and blogging. I realise I can use my small Sony w830 camera for taking photo’s when I am out and about.I can carry my small Acer Happy netbook to blog when I am out and about.And I can my Blackberry 9360 to surf the net, on my daily travels also long as I can find a wifi hotspot. I really dont need a smart phone just for fashion ,to keep up with the Jones
Unfortunately the only thing I miss is Whatsapp as my family in Nigeria contact me via that and sent photos. But I now use Facebook instead.Blackberry no longer support Whatsapp on Blackberry.
I have a list of things that I need to buy.
New Laptop as my old one is outdated and broken.
Laminate flooring for my small flat ,I have no flooring
New 50mm Lens for my D5100 camera
New comfortable chair and table for my secondhand pc which is on its way so I can complete my university work.
A tablet as my netbook is old and out of date.
As you can see smartphone just isnt in my list of things to buy plus too get a good smartphone with excellent camera you need to spend about £250.And thats a price I just cant afford. Iphone 6 plus is my dream phone and its going for £600 .Its just to expensive, thats a price of a plane ticket to see my family in Nigeria .I would rather that then a smart phone.
People there is life outside of owning a smartphone
One good thing about my old blackberry 9360, is that you can drop it and its less likely to break then a smartphone.
Tell me if you can live without a smart phone,please share and comment .love betty
I have worked about 7 years in total from 17 to 38 years old. And it has dawn on me just how much people look down on the unemployed and women in general.
When I haven’t been working ,I’ve even been studying or looking for work. But I am truthly fed up ,with people asking me what I do when I ain’t working.
I follow my hobbies dumbo for the haters out there,which is blogging ,reading ,sewing, cycling etc.
These fucking feminist get right on my titties.A lot of feminism is just misogyny repacked
Its especially annoying when my work coach and employers ask me what I have been doing when I not been working. Its like people forget, that life still has purpose when your not working.
I am currently off work due to chronic fibroid pain and depression .But I got found fit for work. Even though I am not. My pain is still chronic and the Tramdol makes me sleepy and tired.
I had a male work adviser who wasn’t understanding so I requested a woman instead.As what the fuck does a man know about having a womb or fibroids. Its alot better but still hard. I am currently appealing my decision.
I feel hollow inside as I dont want to work. Its time for me to have a family. You can have a great job but still come home to a empty house. Plus who will look after me in my old age. Not the fucking Department of Work and Pensions.Its time to make a family.I feel like my illness is a sign from God, telling me to slow down and make a family.
I really hope I found a man to make babies with, so I can get off the Department of Work & Pension books .Its just so fucking annoying. I dont have good GCSES ,my grammar and punctuation is rubbish.I tried a English class but couldn’t cope with the three hours on my bun in pain ,on a rock hard chair.The hope of me finding a job is slim.
Its really hard right now.I really just want to piss off to Africa but I need money first.In Africa a women traditional role is valued at lot more .Women traditional roles are devalued in the west.especially Britain.
Women in Britain are meant to be superwomen, have a career, be a great wife and mother .Women who are just unemployed ,mothers or a housewife are fucking looked down on.Its truthly disgusting how these women are treated here.And there hardly anyone fighting for those women’s rights
With my current health problems ,people keep telling me to have a baby and the fibroids will go but I have to find a man first.
Sorry if I haven’t blog for a while life is stressful right now.
I hope to travel this year ,to a lot of places.I am lucky to whole two passport, as a dual citizenship.One of the passport is a ECOWAS passport which allow me to travel visa free through West Africa and other exotic places. Like Fiji and Vanuatu (places where black people have naturally blonde Afros )
Also Barbados and quite a few countries in East and south east Africa.
I am always moaning about hating the cold damp weather of England.But when I first look at my ECOWAS passport I wasn’t excited.My mind was full of stereotypes of Africa. Even though I hate the cold and can’t imagine retirement in cold England.
So this year I have going to make some changes and have a positive mindset.And stop thinking that the west is the centre of the world.I want to go and visit the land of my forefathers and mothers.
And I wouldn’t mind visiting Vanuatu ,it’s amazing to see natural blond afros. Even though there’s natural blonde afro Africans in Africa.But not as many as in Papau New Guinea.
It’s time to bordered my horizons.The only thing that puts me off ,is the scary stories of my Nigerians relatives and the constantly queue of other Africans complaining to me .That some African stolen there money ,when there just wanted to built a house in Africa .Or the African leader who turn into a dictator over night.That line comes from my Eritrea friends.
Or that theirs no constant electricity supply in Africa.
Seriously after all these scary stories, these Africans relatives and friends assure me that there were the only civilized Africans about and if they could just get rid of the other Africans life would be great in Africa.
I just rolled my eyes and keep quiet. And thought of one more year in England in the bloody cold, waiting on summer.God help me ,I hate the cold.
Then there was the worry that I might get chopped up or sold into slavery in Africa. Black skin aint worth much in some parts of Africa .You will get more for white skin then my Coco Brown skin .But I finally thought, if the white man can go Africa why can’t I.
Its not like I haven’t been mistake for other Africans, my Gambia friend thought ,I was Gambian .Then I got mistake for a Somali. Then a Ugandan etc.
Really folks, all African phenotypes come out of East Africa.Why are people surprise that an West African can look East African.I don’t know.
My people the Efik /lbibio of Nigeria have a story that we came from Ethiopia ,through Sudan ,then Cameroon ,then Nigeria.
Yes I know that Sudan isnt next to Cameroon but that’s just how the story goes.Its sounds about right ,the scientist’s say Ethiopia is where oldest human has been found .Can’t wait to visit Ethiopia motherland.
I will fly Ethiopia Airlines to Nigeria ,as its dead cheap and I want to give my money to African airline not European airlines.Its also helps boost African economy.European airlines dominate African airways right now. And people wonder why Africans struggle to can’t get jobs in Africa .And will risk there life to cross the Sahara and Mediterranean sea for Europe the promise land.
One of the reasons is because European, America business come to Africa and dominate the Africa economy and drive Africans out of business.But that another blog post.

I love blogging ,just wish sometimes I would afford better equipment.Instead of the cheapness camera in the store, the cheapness smart phone & cheapness tablet.But it is what it is. I had to save up for my new phone,as I broken my other phone the Alcatel Popstar broken.
I brought the Alcatel pop 4 which is the upgrade for Popstar, it’s got good screen resolution at 720 x 1280 .A decent twin camera and portable battery charger.And it was in my budget. With theses low end Alcatel you really need portable battery pack as the battery aint great on them.They run out quickly.
The next thing I brought was a digital camera ,the Sony W830. I need a camera so badly . It’s very light weight ,feels like a toy but I don’t like the fact that it takes Sony camera battery .
But it’s to late now, I have brought it and opened before I realise that its only takes Sony batteries
.The next thing I brought was two different kinds of selfie sticks .One for a smart phone and one for a portable camera.The camera one was a pound at Poundworld. And the next one was half price at track in bright pink and was 3 pounds. The only thing I need is a tablet as mini Netbook has a software problem, I can’t work out how to fix it.Its useless and I cant afford to fix it.Best to just replace it.
.Plus I don’t want to pour anymore money into it again.I would really like a Samsung tablet , Levono tablet or a mini iPad.But let’s see if I can afford it.I will have to save as I have many things to buy.Like new flooring for my flat and a new camera lens for my D5100 Nikon.As I don’t have one for it right now. Hard times folks Tell me what you think is needed for blogging on the go.Please share ad comment .love Betty.
God I just wish mybank balancewould allow me to buy ,whatever I wanted but it doesn’t. But the great thing about blogging ,is that you live in a virtual world where you can buy everything you want. Here what I need in my wardrobe as winter sets in.
