Over the past year or so my blog has become super busy. I have a steady stream of work, which is great, but working from home when you have two small children presents some challenges! I don't want to be attached to my laptop while looking after my family so I try to do most things in the evenings or at the weekend. Last year Ian got me a tablet for my birthday. It makes it so much easier to organise my home life and work life.
Notepad: I'm always taking notes, be it things I need to buy, or ideas for a new blog post, or an appointment I've just made. Instead of using a physical notepad and pen I can just jot it down in the memo on my tablet.
Emails & Social Media: I can use my tablet to catch up on emails and social media while the boys are eating their breakfast and lunch. My tablet is always ready to use, so I can check for new notifications and post new updates in minutes and then bring my attention straight back to my children.
Camera: There have been occasions when a photo opportunity has popped up that I would have missed if I didn't have my tablet. It can record video too, and I have a couple of precious moments recorded on my tablet.
Organiser: I use the calendar to organise my workload and keep on top of deadlines, as well as make notes of any important family appointments. It's handy being able to set reminders, as I have a brain like a sieve!
E-reader: A big part of blogging is reading other blogs. You have to keep up with your peers otherwise it's a lonely world! My tablet is the ideal size for reading on and it's not too heavy to hold.
