Us bloggers tend to rely heavily on apps and the latest sites, whether it’s for inspiration, editing snaps or promoting our blogs – I thought I’d share my top 8 apps that I couldn’t blog without! I’d love to know what apps you use to help stay organised when blogging on the go, please share any below!
Pinterest: Last month I did a post on the 10 things you need to know about Pinterest after I went to a really interesting workshop at their HQ. I’m a huge, huge fan of Pinterest and loving pinning on the go – usually on my way to and from work. It’s a great way to note inspiration and ideas, pin anything that inspires you to your boards then look back over your boards if you’re lacking on ideas.
Buffer: I always use Buffer to schedule in my Tweets (you can also use it for Facebook too), it’s free if you’d like to schedule up to 10 tweets a day. I upgraded my account for around £6 a month so I can schedule further in advance – it’s always handy when going on holiday etc as I don’t have to worry about promoting my posts and struggling to find wi-fi.
Afterlight: I’ve spoken about my love for Afterlight before but this is definitely my go-to app for editing my Instagram images. It’s great for adjusting contrast, brightness and clarifying images – you can also add borders or overlay text. A really great app for editing pictures!
Read it later: This app is super handy – when reading daily news sites, your favourite blogs or magazines you can save articles to your ‘read it later’ and then once your articles are saved down you can read them offline. A great app if you know you won’t have wi-fi i.e on a long haul flight as you can catch up on some reading through the app without being connected to the internet.
Evernote: I use Evernote to write notes, collect images and create checklists of what I need to do, it’s a great one for on the go to help keep you organised! The app also recommends you can take snaps of business cards too so it’s like a giant folder of all ‘blog related’ things that you need to do.
Bloglovin’: I adore Bloglovin’ and check my feed every morning and evening for new blog posts, I have the app on my phone and always tend to check any news posts during the day. It’s a great one to have for keeping up to date with your latest blog reading!
Instagram: A bit of a no-brainer/obvious one I know (I genuinely don’t know a single blogger who doesn’t have Instagram) but I had to put this one down as I love it so much! I usually upload 2/3 images a day and always have accounts that I love to check daily for inspiration and amazing snaps!
Reward style: If you’re signed to Reward Style then it’s always really handy to have the app as you can check your daily earnings, as well as link the items you’re wearing to your Instagram via liketoknow.it! Reward Style is an app that I need to make more use of but one I love no less!
