One thing you should know about me…
I am always rocking a bum bag! (Or, for my American friends, a fanny pack!)
Honestly, I don’t know… I just started wearing quirky ones when I was at university, maybe as a ‘fashion statement’, and then I realised how truly convenient they were. Especially if you travel light like I do.
But why is this relevant for social media managers?
When we’re live-tweeting at events, we need all sorts of gadgets on our person. But wearing a bag is annoying and often gets in the way. So, I always have one of my assorted bum bags on instead!
Here’s what I can fit in mine when I am live-tweeting an event
- Two phones – work and personal
- Two portable chargers
- USB charger cable and plug
- Clip-on microphone that plugs into my phone
- Pen (or several…)
- There is also room for a few pieces of paperwork with the details of event/attendees as needed
I have a litre wattle bottle with a big enough loop to thread onto the waistband of my bumbag, and then it conveniently sits on my hip all day as and when I need it. I can also loop my light jacket through it as well if I get warm.
Seriously, invest in bum bags.
