Every blogger has their own special online tools to make their blog stand out from the rest. It has taken me a while to find the right tools for me but here they are! Some tools do have free trials and others are free! Check them out!
Two for editing: spelling error and grammar
Hemingway’s editor: the online free version where you can copy and paste your work, and a paid version that is a desktop app.
Grammarly: There are a free version and a premium version that catches more errors
Three for graphics, infographics, and images to spice up your articles
Canva: There is a free version and a paid version. Both are great and have a variety of templates to choose from
Shutterstock: Great for getting free images, again there is a paid version to more access to exclusive pictures
Giphy.com: Great free online source for where a picture doesn’t quite capture what you want to say.
Two for storage and organizing thoughts to make the best posts!
Google docs: I use a lot when I am on the go. I type my ideas on my phone under google doc and save it for when I get back to my computer.
OneNote: Lots of features, is a paid service with Microsoft but none the less- worth it! This helps me get my ideas all on one page as well as sort out ideas for other projects I am working on.
Three great places to share your blog posts to and grow your audiences
Facebook: The biggest platform to share with a wide audience. Easily connect to your blog and web site.
Pinterest: Great for sharing graphics and infographics on your blog to drive more traffic to your website
Instagram: For everyday pictures and another great place to grab new audience members.
