Keeping a blog updated and readers engaged is a continual process. Tales of Froth is starting to get noticed slowly here in my local city of Bangalore and in a few countries around the world.
Quite a few followers and people I meet in person have asked me what tools I use (no we are not going south of the border for this one).
My philosophy in life is very simple – keep things simple!
I do the pictures, logo & site design myself with simple tools! This is what the early TOF designs looked like.
Camera: Google Pixel/ Moto G5 S Plus
Graphics Editing: Picasa, Instagram, Stock Android Tools such as Snapseed.
Web Browser: Chrome
Graphics: Stock Photos.
Don’t laugh but I still use MS Office Pro 2003 and my laptop is a dinosaur from 2009 – still barely alive. If you’d like to help me get a new laptop, by all means I shall gladly accept.
*Update* – I’ve got myself a new laptop – the Lenovo X240 – a great little machine that’s ultra portable. I wouldn’t mind a video camera though – donations welcome 🙂
More Recent Update – I’ve literally junked the X240 and got myself an HP Pavilion X360 and finally have Office 2016
WordPress has some great layouts and tools – not the easiest GUI but if you work at it, it will work for you.
My Other Tools
Content – I write most of the articles myself, if not I have given credit to my external sources. I also get moral support and a few ideas from some of my best friends. In the coming weeks and months, I will be engaging my roving reporters scattered all over this crazy beer filled planet to help me bring more frothiness to you!
- Sher – putting Belgium on my beer map and for all the help in 2015.
- Thank you to my friends AT, Suds and Sam for all your inputs and fun sessions.
*Update – Most of my help now comes from the other admins from the Friends Of Froth FB group. The blog and social media channels are still run very much by me with little to no outside help.
