My Favourite Blogging Tools


Canva
I use Canva for doing anything design related to my blog! I'm somebody who is good on a computer but if you were to put Photoshop in front of me and ask me to make a blog header, nope sorry not happening!

 Canva is a super easy website that has lots of pre-made designs for you to use and edit for yourself, you also have the option to start from complete scratch with your own custom dimensions etc. The only things you have to pay for on Canva are certain stock images if you choose to use them however I have never had to pay anything as there are tons of free images available for you to use!

Buffer
I find Buffer a really useful app when it comes to promoting my latest blog posts. Buffer is a free app and website that lets you schedule your tweets and other social media posts in advance, which is handy if your at work all day and want to share your post links a couple of times! 

Crowdfire
This is probably my favourite app when it comes to Twitter and Instagram! it tracks your followers and unfollowers so when you get people who unfollow you and think you didn't notice, Crowdfire will tell you who they are haha! This app also lets you send automatic direct messages to your new followers, I think its a good idea but personally I don't use this feature as it annoys me when I get automated messages myself!

Social Media

Social media is so powerful when it comes down to blogging, I would definitely recommend joining Twitter as this has helped me so much since starting my blog!

There are lots of bloggers who host different Twitter chats most days of the week, by joining in with these chats you get to meet other bloggers and gain some really useful advice and blog ideas! Twitter is also great when you want to get your blog posts noticed, by using hashtags and tagging blogging accounts in your tweets, you can get your links seen by so many people!


Bloglovin' is another great site to join, it lets you keep track of all the blogs that you follow in one place, so when your favourite blogger writes a new post, you'll be sure not to miss it! Bloglovin' also suggests other blogs you might like to read based on who your following, which is great as you can discover some fantastic blogs that you won't have heard of before!

  2. Ive never used Crowdfire (will have to download the app after this comment) that sounds like a good way to check out those followers that unfollow you straight away, very annoying!!

  5. People keep telling me to get into Canva so I think it's time I do just that. I used to use Buffer but if you use an app called "Publish" which is part of Crowdfire you can scroll up to earlier posts and reuse them! Great post x

  6. I didn't realise Crowdfire tells you who has unfollowed you! I've been looking manually. You have defo helped me save time.
