Blogging Tool #6: A Separate Monitor

Greeting and Salutations,

Now that I am finally (almost) free from the clutches of Finals Week, I am able to upload this long awaited Blogging Tool post. This time, I wanted to point out another one of my most recent additions: an extended monitor. I just started using one this year, and have to say, I have no idea how I managed to go without one. The one I am using at the moment is actually borrowed from my best friend, who just had it lying around the apartment, and, after tripping over it for the hundredth time, I finally realized to put it to good use. However, since it’s an older model it does not have an HDMI port, and so, I had to get an adaptor. (Which was best since I have a Mac now.)

Now, I don’t want to make this post as long as the other ones because, aside from cost and one more appliance hooked up to an outlet, there really isn’t much to argue against a monitor. In today’s world, things happen much more quickly. (Goodbye analog.) So, a monitor allows for further multitasking. I, for example, use mine to either do research on the side, look at other blogs and reply to my own, and watch shows online, among other things. Also, this beats having to get a second computer! In fact, my sister just updated my Macbook with OS X Mavericks and it is awesome! Now, a monitor plays much more of a role than simply an extended screen. It actually is very similar to having two computers at hand.

How many of you already use a monitor, or are planning to get one? I’m saving up to get a nicer, more modern one, but that’s slow goings. Still, Sony knows how to build good stuff, this one works amazingly!

Well, have a wonderful day everyone! Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestion for future posts. Thanks!
