Apps & Resources Every Blogger Should Swear By...



Holllllla! I have done similar posts to this before, but I just love to share the apps & resources that have been enhancing my blogging experiences, with you. I am always getting asked what I use for this, that and the other, so I thought I would make an up to date post on the ones I am obsessed with and couldn't live without right now. It's really important, as a blogger, to be organised and really make use of the little time that we actually have to schedule, edit, write, design and much more. I hope you find some use in these apps & resources.


- HOOTSUITE (APP & DESKTOP)
Hootsuite is incredible for time management on the social media front. Some people swear by daily scheduling, however I only schedule tweets when I remember/can be bothered. It really, really does have a positive impact on your stats and followers though and I would recommend daily scheduling to everyone who has the time or considers blogging their full time occupation.
- PICMONKEY (DESKTOP)
PicMonkey is one of two of my ultimate go to resources for blogging. I create all my blog headers, edit photographs and create post headers with this website and I love it! It's so easy to use and fast working that it takes me no more than 5 minutes to create anything basic.
- CANVA (DESKTOP)
My other favourite design website, Canva, allows you to create any size image and gives you solid inspiration from many of the design choices and editing tools. A little harder than PicMonkey to get into but the quality of design it produces is second to none.
- AFFILIATE WINDOW (DESKTOP)
Affiliate window is my go to for affiliate networking. If you want to include affiliate links and work with top end brands then look no further. I have earned the most money blogging from Affiliate Window. It's not just links and ad space either I have worked on sponsored post through this website too, it's a great starting point for those who want to make money from their blog.
- BLOGLOVIN (APP & DESKTOP)
Bloglovin is a no brainer, it's full of great reads from all your fellow bloggers and crammed with inspiration for your own blog. If I am ever at a loss for what I want to blog about I read through lots and lots of blogs until the green light comes on. I get seriously inspired from it and it can come from reading one sentence or just being inspired by a particular blogger.
- VSCO CAM (APP)
This app is my go to for filtering my Instagram posts. I love Instagram and up until 3 weeks ago I was more than pleased with the outcome from the standard Instagram filters. I then saw a couple of bloggers talking about VSCO, so I downloaded it to see what the fuss was about and I am SOLD. I didn't even know these filters and edits could exist for free!? It's amazing and you need to download it right now.
- VIRALWOOT (DESKTOP)
The one and only Viralwoot is a Pin scheduler for Pinterest. This is a great way to consistently post as it can be quite fiddly to do on the go. Consistency is key with Pinterest if you want to grow your following and increase your traffic. This tool is very handy and one every blogger should k- Unow about.
- DROPBOX (DESKTOP & APP)
I could not recommend an application more, Dropbox is life changing. In basics Dropbox is an application that stores your photos and if you have the app, it syncs photo's from your phone onto the app and stores them there. You can save multitudes of files, photos and much more with Dropbox. It's a great way to share your CV, media pack and photos anywhere, anytime.
- GOOGLE ANALYTICS (DESKTOP & APP)
Google Analytics is life if you're a blogger. I can't live without it and you can now have your beloved statistics on the go. The app is extremely easy to use and understand which ensures you can keep up to date on your blogs activity wherever you may be.
- UPWORK (DESKTOP)
Looking for some extra pennies? Upwork is an awesome freelancing job board, better than any other that I have used. Whether you're looking for web design or content writing, Upwork has millions of jobs waiting for you to snap up!
