Following on from my recent post about problems I've been having with technology, I've been having a few more, and as a consequence, I've decided that it's time for a bit of technological simplification around here.
After my blogging camera gave up the ghost the other week, I decided that I would utilise Little Bird's camera, which hasn't ever had much use since she got a phone with a camera. I then discovered that she had lost the lead that enables you to upload the photos, so that put paid to that idea as we don't have another one that fits. I could still have opted to use OH's digital camera, but that would mean sharing this with him and he needs it for his work, so this wasn't an ideal option either.
As a result of all the above and in keeping with my aim to simplify my life this year, I've decided that instead of buying another separate camera for me to use for blogging and my business, I'm just going to use my phone camera from now on and make life simpler by having less devices. I'm hoping this should translate to fewer technological problems. (We'll see how long this theory stands up!)
Anyway, I'm now back using the laptop and have downloaded the app to allow me to upload photos from my phone, so I'm back in action which feels great. I just need to remember to keep my phone fully charged now in order to take pictures when I need to! At least it will be one less thing to carry around with me when I go out and about, and one less battery using device to worry about and spend money on replacing. I just need to recycle the old devices in our local small electrical appliance recycling bin, which will be very satisfying.
