Blogging isn’t always an easy task. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming. Whether or not your blog is monetized, or you’re just doing it as a hobby, the only way to keep your readers is to make sure you update often.
If you don’t spend all of your time glued to your laptop or desktop computer you may want to look into having some useful apps downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet. Here are five of the best apps to help make blogging easier and faster.
Dropbox For Easy Access to Files
You know that sometimes you just don’t have enough time to complete a blog post and get it live before you leave the house for work or play. Dropbox is a great utensil to save your unfinished work and then access it from anywhere. Dropbox is like a cloud storage space, which means you can get to your files and photos from another computer or, or course, your smartphone or tablet.
App Versions of Your Blog Platform
Many blogging platforms have app versions so that you can work from your tablet. If you use blogger or wordpress for your blog, they both have apps you can use to keep your blogs up to date no matter where you are, as long as you have access to the internet!
Evernote as Your Virtual Assistant
Evernote is the perfect app for brainstorming, saving ideas and other things. It’s somewhat similar to Dropbox and is also a free download. With Evernote, you can also tag items to attach them to your blog. Take some time to get to know all this app can do for you.
Edit Photos with Photoshop
You can download a free photoshop app to your phone or tablet and use it to edit photos before you post them onto your blog. Sometimes a photo just isn’t the right size, or maybe the coloring is off. With the photoshop app it’s a simple fix.
Hootsuite Saves You Time
Hootsuite will definitely make your life easier. With this app you can schedule blog posts and social media posts and you don’t even have to worry about making sure they go live, because Hootsuite is reliable. Use it for all of your posting needs.
Whether you just blog because it’s fun or you have something to share that people love to read, or because you do it for a living, you can benefit from each and every one of these apps. Whether they help you time your posts so that when you are busy it still looks like you’re online writing or they allow you to save stuff for when you do have time, you can stay on top of things.
