If you don’t already know in the blogging world I am still a beginner but I decided why not share with you guys what I’ve learned so far as a beginner and what tools I started using daily.
Starting a blog can be pretty hard and I don’t think people realize that. When I first thought of the idea to start a blog I honestly thought it would be the simplest thing to do but I can now say I was totally wrong. Anyone can start a blog but my honest opinion is to keep in mind it’s not as super easy as it may sound.
Being a blogger means putting in a lot of work and hours, learning and reading a ton of different articles, ebooks, videos, engaging in social media as much as you possibly can and etc. I am still learning new things every day and being a beginner there’s still so much I know I haven’t come across yet. With time I know my writing and pictures will improve and the same goes for anyone just starting out. We all may not be amazing writers but we can’t just give up because eventually everything will come together and look as professional as it possibly can be.
Today I am here writing this because as a beginner I want to share with you the top blogging tools I use daily that helps me with my blog. There are a ton of different tools out there you can use but as mentioned before as a beginner these are the tools I am currently loving for my blog.
If you don’t already know Grammarly is a FREE proofread tool to use but if you would like to upgrade to the premium version you do have the option. Grammarly is by far the best tool you can use as a blogger! All you have to do is add their chrome extension and once the tool has been added as you are writing it continuously checks for all of your spelling and grammar errors.
Using Grammarly is extremely easy to use. For instance, let’s say you are writing and as you are writing you’ll notice Grammarly will underline any mistakes in your writing and on the side a red circle will appear to let you know you currently have some mistakes.
All you have to do is hover over the red line and a pop-up will appear showing suggestions to correct any of your mistakes. This tool is great and I love using it. Since I’m not perfect at writing Grammarly helps make sure my posts are free of any spelling or grammar error.
If you don’t already know Pinterest is one of the best ways to increase traffic on your blog. If you are just starting out it is very important to schedule social media posts and If there will be a day you know you won’t be near your computer Tailwind is a tool that will help in scheduling automated pins throughout the day. This tool helps in managing your Pinterest and Instagram content and analytics.
If you are someone who wants to get more visitors to your blog and grow your traffic, Tailwind is the perfect tool. You can sign up to Tailwind for free and see how it will help you out with traffic to your blog and get your first 100 pins for free.
Are you looking to create a nice worthy Pinterest pin for your blog post? If so, I totally recommend Canva for editing photos. You do have to pay a monthly fee for which is $12.99 and I know it sounds a bit much to pay monthly but Canva is one of the best tools to help me with my pins. Y ou can create so many different graphic designs. You can even use Canva to design a banner or logo for your blog and/or social media posts.
I recommend giving this tool a try I use Canva for pretty much all of my Pinterest pins and it’s one of my favorite tools that really help my pins look professional.
All Bloggers live and breathe traffic, and Google Analytics is one of the most powerful analytics tools that give you an in-depth look at your website. If you use WordPress for your blog you may see that they provide stats but these stats aren’t always as accurate. Google Analytics will, of course, give you the true stats you are looking for. If you don’t already have this amazingly useful and free tool for your site I definitely recommend trying it out.
