#socialbloggers 91 // Blogging Tools

#socialbloggers (8)

There are so many things we can use to help us blog, automate social media and stay organised.

My favourite tools are:

  • Buffer to schedule Tweets
  • Picmonkey to edit photos
  • Canva to create graphics
  • Photoshop to create Pinterest images
  • The Editorial Calendar WordPress Plugin
  • Ahalogy to schedule Pins
  • Twufer to schedule the #socialbloggers chat
  • Whatsapp web for a healthy bit of distraction

If I could make my own tool, it would probably something to do with proof reading as it’s something I’m really bad at! I’m dyslexic and often struggle to spot my own mistakes and generally will have to re-read loads of time! It would be great if there was a site where you could submit post to be proof read, and maybe have to proof read one that’s of similar word length in exchange? I’d be up for that!

    Grammarly. Get it. Now. It’s a site with free plugin for Mac/Windows that one installed with automatically check EVERYTHING you type online, from within blogger/wordpress to even when you’re commenting on other blogs. It scans your text as you type and looks for any and all spelling and grammar mistakes. It’s a serious life saver. I’m useless at finding the mistakes in my own work so this acts as a great proofreader.

    Do it now. Thank me later.

    I agree with Sarah. I use Grammarly (the free version) and find it a god-send for proof-reading my work… I can never see my own mistakes (or I do when it’s too late!).

    I’ve recently started using Twitter tool for scheduling tweets, less work for me 🙂 Photoshop is one of my essentials, I don’t know what I would do without it 🙂 x

    Love this! I personally love Canva and Buffer as well, and Pixlr for photo editing. It’s awesome to see what others are using!

    Ahhhhh! I loved this chat, it had to be one of my favourite of all times, and I feel like there were some great answers too. I really agree with Anne – we really need a new programme that allows us to handle all types of social media at all times. It’d make life so much easier.

    I don’t really know what I’d do without photoshop either. Also – this is gonna make me sound like I only started blogging last night (barely), but I just learned how to schedule blog posts on blogger so I feel like I won something and I can’t live without it anymore.

    It would have to be picmonkey and my camera. I would love someone to invent something that proof read posts, I am awful at spotting my own errors but annoyingly can spot others Lucy x
