3 Apps to Up Your Blogging Game

best apps for bloggers

Canva

Canva

Canva is my favorite app to use for blogging and social media. I use it to quickly create featured images, Instagram stories, Pinterest graphics, and more! They also have media kit templates for bloggers as well.

The thing I REALLY like about Canva, is that I can use it on my phone AND on my computer. That makes it super versatile and ridiculously handy.

Crowdfire

Crowdfire

Crowdfire helps you manage, post, and grow your social accounts. I use it primarily to announce new listings to my Etsy, and to post old blog posts to my Twitter and Facebook accounts. This is really handy to help you remember to post! It also helps you post articles your audience might be interested it, track your engagements stats, and boost your general presence online.

The free plan doesn’t let you schedule too many posts at a time, but for a new blogger it is still really handy.

Just like Canva, Crowdfire also has a desktop version!

Tailwind

Tailwind

Primarily marketed as a Pinterest tool amongst bloggers, Tailwind is the MUST HAVE tool for new bloggers. If you don’t already know, Pinterest can be a great source of traffic for your blog. Tailwind helps you maximize that by scheduling your pins, providing you stats, and connecting you with others in groups called Tribes.

It’s also handy with those Instagram tags. Have you ever been shadow banned? You’re using the same tag too often. The Tailwind app for instagram helps you find new tags to use and even goes so far as to show you less competitive tags. Beyond that, you can schedule posts, save groups of hashtags, and collect drafts within the app.

You can use my referral code to get your first month of PLUS free!

Need more? Check out these apps.

Lively– Lively converts your live videos into videos and gifs. My FAVORITE thing to do with this app is to create quick fashion videos for my instagram feed. We all know video is the go-to for social media in 2018. I highly recommend trying this out.

Collabor8– If you’re a small blogger looking to land your first collaboration, this is the app for you. You do have to sift through quite a few shops that won’t be relevant for you, but its an excellent start.

A Color Story – This is the app I use to edit my fashion videos for my instagram feed. I like ACS because you can use it on photos AND video. Done and done.

 

And there your have it- my apps to up your blogging game!

    My husband and I are new to blogging. We only started this month, so most of these apps and tools are completely new to us. We just started using Canva and we have so much to learn about it but so far it’s awesome! We’ve been hearing good things about Tailwind so we’ll definitely check that out for our Pinterest presence! Lively sounds like something we can have fun with. This was an awesome post!
