When you first start blogging you can feel overwhelmed with all the things you need to do to get your blog started and become a full-time successful blogger but with the help of these must-have apps, you will find blogging much easier and keep you on track to reaching your blogging goals sooner.
I’ve left out The Big Ones – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. We all know we need these!
Pin this so you won’t forget to download these apps later!
Canva is by far my favourite imagine making website, I make all my feature imagines and Pinterest pins on Canva although I prefer to use Canva on my laptop it’s still a great app to use on the go.
If your blog is on WordPress, you need this app. I write my posts on my laptop but this app is great for editing posts and respond to comments when you can’t get to a computer. I mostly use the WordPress app to edit a post if there are typos, fix a link or look at site stats.
Keeping up with the blogging community is the exciting part of being a blogger! Bloglovin allows you to keep up with your favourite blogs, follow new ones, and see what other bloggers are writing about, all in one place. Again, it’s the perfect place to find inspiration
Another great app to find blogs is Medium. Having the app on my phone makes it much easier to keep in touch with what’s going on. My favourite feature of the app is you can choose who to follow based on your interests this will definitely inspire and excite you to write your own posts.
If you are just starting to build your e-mail list tribe then I recommend MailChimp as its free up to 2000 subscribers and very simple platform to use. The app lets you see when people subscribe, view reports and can work on newsletter drafts, I also love that I can make sure that my campaigns went out and I can quickly see open and click rates.
I used to just use the Pinterest app to pin directly this would take up a lot of my time so when I stumbled across Tailwind that allows you to schedule pins I knew it would be a game changer. I mostly use Tailwind on my computer but I like to use the app to make sure things are running smoothly.
I have seen a huge increase in traffic to my Pinterest and blog since using Tailwind, I wasn’t sure it would live up to the claims people say about how much their Pinterest grew since using Tailwind, but I took advantage of the free month and I’m so glad I did.
Didn’t get time to get everything finished? I hear you. Save your files to Dropbox and you can access them from wherever you are.
I actually found this app when I searched for facebook on the App store I feel like its a bit of a hidden gem. If you run a Facebook page this separate facebook app for pages makes it much easier to share and schedule posts.
