8 Fantastic Tools To Help You On Your Blogging Journey

Blogtober graphic

Hey guys and welcome to Blogtober day 13. In today’s post I’m going to be talking about the 8 tools/apps I use on a regular basis to help me with my blog. There are so many apps/tools out there and it’s hard to find the ones that will work for you – I hope this post can introduce you to some new tools!


Headline Analyser by CoSchedule.

I always struggle with deciding on blog titles – never knowing how best to structure one, or how to name it to make it appealing. That’s when I found this website and it’s honestly helped me so much. A score of 70 or higher is seen as the most engaging headline.

Free.

Browser.

I also love how it shows you the word balance – giving you an indication of what types of words to include to raise the score.


Canva.

Free – paid plans available.

Browser | App Store | Android.

I use this app to make my heading graphics. I also used it to design my header, logo and signature graphics too. There are a large range of images you can use along with fonts – and all for free.


PicMonkey.

Free – paid plans available.

Browser | App Store | Android.

There are some things I couldn’t design in Canva so I got this app to see if it would be better for me. I use Picmonkey to add my handle to my photographs and design my Pinterest images.


VSCO.

Free – paid plans available.

App Store | Android.

This is the app I use to edit my photographs for my blog and instagram. I love this because it’s so simple and easy to use and I never use the fancy settings that some other apps include.


Tailwind.

Starts at $9.99 (£7.59) Free trial available.

Browser | App Store.

I’ve heard this program mentioned since I started blogging and honestly never bothered to have a look to see if it could help me. I don’t know why I put it off for so long. I’ve not been using it for long but I’m already seeing a difference in how much engagement my pins are receiving and thus views on my blog. This is mainly used through a browser but the app allows you to see your scheduled pins and rearrange them.


Hootsuite.

Free – paid plans available.

Browser | App Store | Android.

Let’s face it – I am terrible at Twitter. I struggle to keep up a presence and find it extremely exhausting to constantly be on there. I started using this app a few weeks ago to schedule some tweets when I’m feeling overwhelmed with social interactions, and it’s working well – I’m able to write the tweets up, schedule them in one go and then I don’t have to worry about it once it’s done.


Planoly.

Free – paid plans available.

Browser | App Store | Android.

One of the things I’m trying to improve on is my Instagram feed. I’m not all that good at keeping with my theme because I find it hard to visualise what it’ll look like with the other pictures. This is why I love this app – it gives you the opportunity to view what a photo will look like once uploaded to your Instagram. You can also write captions and schedule – all in a beautifully designed app.


Evernote.

Free – paid plans available.

Browser | App Store | Android.

This one is one of the apps I included in my Apps for Writers post and I have to add it into this one as well. This is my favourite note taking app ever. I’ve tried out many different ones and I always seem to go back to this one.


There you have it – my favourite apps that help me in your blogging journey -hopefully they will help you too. I love reading your comments and interacting with you all, and using these apps help me enough so that I am able to do that.
