For 2017, I plan to really get serious about my blog. My goal is to create and share amazing content that my readers will appreciate. Sometimes bloggers need all the help possible to elevate his/her strategy. These apps have been helping me in my quest to become a better blogger.
This app is my best friend!!! Canva is a free graphic design tool that I have been using for approximately a year. I create most of my Instagram graphics with this Canva. I also use it for some of the pictures right here on The Realest Real. You don’t need to be a professional to create beautiful images. The app is easy to navigate and use. I recommend Canva for bloggers or anyone who wants to create simple graphics to share on social media. The release of the iOS app makes me love Canva even more.
We all know that a social media strategy is essential to promoting your blog and communicating with your audience. I just started using Hootsuite to manage all my social media accounts. Hootsuite makes it easy to auto-schedule posts or share the same content to different platforms at different times. I plan to create a weekly social media content plan and choose one day to schedule all my posts. I can already see that my life on social media would be made so much easier.
Imagine having access to thousands of royalty free stock photos right at your fingertips? Pixabay has been my go-to source of images since I started The Realest Real. You can use these images as you please with no attribution required. Pixabay recently released a mobile app and I couldn’t be more excited.
Adobe Photoshop Express
This is my go-to photo editor. I edit everything on the Photoshop Express app. It gives you a wide range of options to enhance your images. You can also share your edited photos directly to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. I recommend this app for anyone who’s looking for a simple photo editor which does not overwhelm you with a billion features.
Evernote is a great way to stay organised. I started using this app back when I was doing my thesis. I decided to also use it for my blog. It helps you to archive lists, pictures, articles, basically anything you need to compile ideas for your blog posts and social media.
If you’re a blogger and you’re reading this, please let me know which apps do you rely on to help you raise your game.
