Bag | Obviously, I need a bag to carry all of my essentials in. I opted for a large [ and I might say stylish ] computer bag. I love this bag – it is specifically made to fit/carry a laptop and has plenty of pockets for everything that I need to carry with me – keeping things neat and organized. It is the starting point to a successful hustle-on-the-go blog bag!
Laptop & Charger | Bringing along my laptop and charger is a given. Obviously these are essentials because blogging would be impossible without them!
Earbuds | I work much better when there is soft music playing over the sounds of the café. I love being around all of the chatter and laughter, but, music helps me settle into writing. So earbuds are essential! I have a blogging playlist with my favorite tracks. It is full of moving ballads and catchy tunes.
SToK™ Cold Brew Coffee & Travel Bottle | I always need iced coffee to get me through a blogging session. A little pick-me-up to fuel my creativity. I like to grab a bottle of SToK™Cold Brew Iced Coffee from my local Kroger and take it with me! SToK™ has some delicious flavors to choose from but I like the ‘Not Too Sweet’ 48oz bottle best. A girl’s gotta have her coffee in abundance. I have a travel thermos bottle that I put my slow brewed Not Too Sweet black coffee in to keep it chilled while i’m on-the-go.
I do my best creative thinking when I have coffee in my system! SToK™is my favorite coffee because of it’s strong, bold flavor. It’s a full on bottle of inspiration! It is slow brewed and cold brewed [ the best always is ] and it is pure coffee with no funky ingredients. Be still my natural, wholesome heart. Kroger carries multiple sizes [ all the praise hands ] – You can get the Not Too Sweet, Vanilla, and Mocha coffee in handy 13oz bottles if you need a smaller burst of creativity-fuel.
Notebook & Calendar | Writing things down with pen on paper is something that I practice often. It’s easy to jot down an idea or list on my iPhone, but, for me, pen and paper has more impact on the growth of that idea. Seeing things written out makes ideas come to life. A notebook for those ideas/lists and a calendar are essentials for planning and outlining future posts and projects!
– What power cords do you need? [ laptop, iPad, phone.. ]
– Will you be handwriting notes? What are your pen and paper needs? [ pens, pencils, a notepad.. ]
– Are you planning posting dates? What do you need for that? [ a hardcopy calendar and/or a planner.. ]
– Do you need writing music? Create a blogging playlist with your favorite songs. Pick songs that help inspire you! [ Don’t forget your earbuds! ]
Most importantly – What do you actually need to have with you to inspire ideas, stay organized, and boost productivity? Think through the essentials that YOU need and make sure you do not overload your bag. Take what is necessary and leave the rest!
