blogging apps

 blogging apps

I spend a lot of time on my phone & I do like to say it’s all work related *I would be lying*. I use it to post my Instagram posts, make notes of blog post ideas and keep up to date with all my favourite blogs & bloggers. I thought I would compile a list of all my favourite blogging apps, that I use pretty much every single day.

MY FAVOURITE BLOGGING APPS

 

TWITTER

I use my Twitter app every single day. Not only to stalk my favourite celebs or catch up on the “QUEENS” group chat but mainly to promote my blog & my posts. I promote new posts, old posts and all my social medias; such as Instagram & Pinterest. I have my largest following on Twitter & the biggest chunk of my blog readers come from there. With that being said, don’t just use it to promote & link drop, it’s also important that you engage with people. I’ve met so many amazing friends through Twitter just through tweeting, joining in conversations & it’s always nice to share the love for fellow bloggers.

WORDPRESS

This is a recent addition to my BLOGGING folder as I’ve only recently switched to wordpress, I know I know where have I been blah blah. I was just so scared to leave blogger after almost SIX years but now I can’t believe it took me so long. I tend to do all my blogging from my laptop but if I need to make any quick changes or jot down quick ideas whilst i’m on the go – I head straight for the app. You can edit posts and check your stats really quickly.

PHOTOSHOP EXPRESS

I use this app more for my Instagram posts, but I also use it if I need to edit a picture for a blog post & I don’t have access to my laptop. It’s SO good and I have deleted all my other photo editing apps now, as I stopped using them once I had this in my life! It has so many options available when it comes to editing and really makes a difference to my images. It’s also completely free which is always nice!

STUMBLEUPON

I discovered this website towards the end of last year and it has made such a difference to my blogging stats & has fast become one of my favourite blogging apps. My views have doubled & sometimes even tripled since using SU. All you do is copy your link into the website (or the app in this case) and that’s it. People will then quite literally STUMBLE UPON your posts, and you can do the same. It’s great for finding new blogs or getting inspiration for post ideas. It’s super easy & takes seconds to input your blog posts.

PREVIEW

I use this app for Instagram and it’s such a good idea! You can input your pictures into it and it will show you all the images laid out to show you how they will look on your feed, so if you have a certain theme you follow for your Instagram, you’ll know instantly if a picture is going to look good & fit in. It also helps you to decide which hashtags to use, which is great for getting your photos seen! All you have to do is select what kind of image it is & what hashtag theme you are going for, e.g. motherhood, travel bloggers, beauty ect and it will generate a load of hastags that fit that theme. It saves you so much time! You can also schedule your Instagram images in advance but I personally prefer to post them as & when.

I hope this has maybe given you some ideas of what apps would work for you & your blog! Let me know your go-to app when it comes to blogging.

    Great post! The only app i don’t have is preview. My Instagram doesn’t really have a theme so I just posts photos without thinking about how they look. I think I might start looking in to it though! X

    Preview is my most favourite thing! It’s completely filled up with ready to go photos all edited for Instagram!
    I think I’m a little too addicted to it at the moment!
    Much love, Caitylis x x
