Before I started blogging, I had no idea what things I’d need to use other than just the blog itself. It seems so simple – register a blogging account, write a post, hit publish. But we all know it’s not as easy as that!
Over my 6 years of blogging, I’ve tried many tools to help me. Some have been great, some not so much. Here are the blogging tools I use all the time:
Making graphics and downloadables has never been so easy! It’s simple to customise templates, add your own colours and make them match your brand.
Buffer lets you add Tweets to your queue and allows you to see analytics of how published ones have performed. You can quickly re-queue Tweets, scheduling ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about doing it manually!
One step up from Buffer is Hiplay – there is no free version, but paid is worth it. Hiplay lets you add Tweets to a list, then that list goes to your Buffer queue when it is empty. This means your feed will never go dry, even when you are busy!
All hail Tailwind! The best way to schedule thousands of pins in advance so you can just let it run its course while you get on with the rest of your life. Tribes are another feature of Pinterest that allows you to share your Pins with other people, then they can share them on their page. This is where using Canva comes in handy – to create beautiful graphics that people want to share!
