Are you interested in doodling but don't know what supplies you need? Actually, doodling doesn’t require a lot of supplies. Just a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. If you want to create real doodle art, you can add some more supplies. Here is a basic doodle supplies list.

1. Sketch book, drawing book, sketch paper, drawing paper

​You don’t need a specific medium to doodle on but if you want to organize your work and look back at it from time to time, I would recommend a sketch book or drawing book.


 Canson Artist Series Universal Sketch Pad, 9


2. Pencil

A pencil is great for creating a first sketch of your doodle which comes into your mind. I would recommend a light pencil (HB grade) so you can erase it easily if you want to make changes to your doodle.

 Dixon Ticonderoga Wood-Cased #2 HB Pencils, Box of 96, Yellow (13872)


3. Eraser

For removing unnecessary outlines of your doodle art or making changes to your doodle work you need an eraser. You can also make the edges softer using an eraser.

 Staedtler Mars Plastic Erasers,Pack of 4 (52650BK4)


4. Drawing pen/Fine liner

A drawing pen/fine liner is used for drawing the outlines of your doodle sketch. You can use different thickness of the writing tip to your taste for refining and shading your doodle.

 Sakura Pigma 30062 Micron Blister Card Ink Pen Set, Black, Ass't Point Sizes 6CT Set


​5. Marker

Markers serve to color in your doodle or to make the outer lines of your doodle thicker in order to create a contrast.

 Sargent Art 22-1581 50-Count Fine Tip Washable Marker Packs


6. Colored Pencil

Instead of markers you can also use colored pencils to color in your doodle, thicken the outer lines or shade your doodle work.

Step By Step To Your Own Blog


Step 1: 

Purchase webhosting and domain. For your blog to be accessible on the Internet, you need webhosting and a domain. Webhosting is the home of your blog and the domain is the address of your blog. You can purchase webhosting and domain within the same company but I recommend to purchase webhosting and domain name with different companies. If you need to change your webhost  for any reasons, it's easier to move your domain to your new webhost. 

I host my blogs at InterServer and purchase my domain names at Namecheap. What I love about InterServer is the option to pay monthly for webhosting instead of paying for years in advance. I pay 5$ per month for my webhosting at InterServer and about $10 to $13 per year for each of my domains. InterServer has a very great customer service. Whenever I have had an issue, I  have contacted them and they have answered immediately and have always been very helpful and solved my issue. 


InterServer Web Hosting and


Another great webhosting provider is Siteground. It is especially recommended if you want to host a WordPress blog.


Web Hosting


Step 2: 

Now you need to install a blogging/content management software or website builder on your webhosting server depending on the type of site you want. Most people recommend WordPress because it is the most flexible content management software and it has many features. However, there is a learning curve with using WordPress and it has a weak point - it can be hacked easily due to the MYSQL database. For this reason, you need to be very careful and invest in a good security. Personally, I don't use WordPress because I prefer a content management system that is not so complex and vulnerable. I use a so called flat-file content management software called Typesetter that has no MYSQL database. It stores data in files that are organized in folders instead. It has a similar user interface but it is way more simple than WordPress. I find it's enough for my purposes. If you want to use WordPress or any other CMS, most webhost provider offer an easy one-click installation for WordPress and many other CMS. Just follow the instructions of your webhosting provider to install WordPress or your preferred CMS. 

Step 3: 

Once you have created the framework of your blog, it's time to fill it with content. Though you could find many information about blog content creation online for free, I recommend the Pajama Affiliates courses  from Robin Cockrell and Lesley Stevens since they are affordable and include a free live support in their Facebook group. After purchasing any of their courses, you are not left alone but get help whenever you need it. No other Affiliate Marketing classes offer that kind of expertise and group coaching like the Pajama Affiliates do!
