I used to share blogging tips and tricks all the time on here, and I decided that I’m going to bring them back to the blog. I have been blogging for almost 10 years which is just crazy to think about. But in those nearly 10 years, I’ve tried several different tools to get my blog how I want it to be. I know it can be intimidating to search for all the tools bloggers use. I’ve been there! I’m hoping this list can help you guys out! Some of these are paid versions, but they offer free versions too.
Canva // This is my favorite tool that I use. I use Canva every day. Graphics for Pinterest, LTK product collages, and I make my Etsy thumbnails there. There are so many things that you can create on there! I personally use paid version because I love the background remover feature, but the free version has some great features too! If you’re interested in signing up, you can do so here.
Mailchimp // I think having a newsletter is so important. I like the thought of having a place where I can contact my followers when Instagram is down for hours, which has happened before. Mailchimp is super easy to use! You can customize so many things and make your newsletter look amazing. I have a popup added to my blog, which makes it super easy for people to subscribe!
Unsplash // This is a great website to get stock photos for free. They have so many photos to choose from on there! I’ve been using photos from there for years. I actually have a profile on there where I post some of my own photography if you want to check it out!
Grammarly // I use Grammarly every day, whether I’m working on a blog post or sending emails. It has helped me so much as a writer! Grammarly corrects your spelling, punctuation, and grammar. I use the free version, but they have a paid version that has some great features. I think the free one is just as good though!
Tailwind // This is great for scheduling posts on Pinterest! Pinning your blogposts to Pinterest makes a huge difference when growing your blog. Tailwind has so many great features that you can use when scheduling a post for Pinterest. You can also use it for Instagram. They have a paid version and a free version. I’m currently just using the free one.
So those are just 5 of my must-have tools as a blogger! I really hope this list helps you guys out. I have a few more tools that I use, and I would be happy to do part 2 of this post if you guys are interested. I love all of these and use them all the time. I think these are also great tools for bloggers that are just starting out!
