Wow, I can’t believe that I just hit my 10th(!) blogging anniversary (yes, I do keep track of those things) two days ago. It seems like yesterday when I started my first personal blog, and here I am now on a different platform with my own domain name, but still blogging! And in those years of blogging, I’ve used a lot of different devices, but I think I’ve found my favorite blogging devices to date.
All of this happened because after upgrading my 2009 Macbook’s OS to Yosemite, it became super slow that it’s almost unusable. Some people said that upgrading the RAM would work, but for now I’m still too lazy to try that, and I sure can’t afford a new laptop.
I thought of using my tablet as an alternative since it had a WordPress app, but if there’s one thing you must know about me, I hate touchscreen keyboards. Everything else about a touchscreen device is nice, but the keyboards are a real pain. I’ve been using touchscreen devices for years but I never really had any fondness for their keyboards. So what I did was pair my tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard and tried to type away. And you know, I haven’t touched my laptop ever since.
But of course, I can’t always carry a Bluetooth keyboard with me. Sometimes I want to write things down before I forget, so I use my Blackberry Passport to write entries on-the-go. You don’t see this everywhere, but I love its combination of a touchscreen and a keyboard, it’s literally the perfect phone for me right now. It can run the WordPress Android app too, which is a big bonus. And I love the long battery life! My past few entries were actually written entirely with the Passport.
I will still try to get my laptop fixed or replace it with a new one if I can afford it. But for now, these set-ups work for me and I love them!
