12 apps for bloggers

8/04/2015


Being a blogger is not as easy as it sounds. Sure, you can lounge about at home in your bed as you write your blog posts and click a simple 'Publish' button. But no doubt - there's a lot more to deal with as a blogger. Good thing we have apps and websites ready for us to use. So here comes a list of the ones I like to use or have discovered and can only recommend.

1. Calendar


Whether it's the calendar app on the iPhone, on the Mac, Google Calendar or the Sunrise Calendar - it should be the #1 go to app every day, at all times. Keep track of posts, events, assignments, appointments and deadlines. Use your calendar religiously (I mean it!) because you'll never need a reminder again. 

Of course you can just use a calendar in notebook format. That way you can easily jot notes down quickly as well. Nothing wrong about the traditional way-- you can pimp it up anytime, too!

2. Reminders


If you happen to forget about checking the calendar now and then, have your phone remind you of everything! You're probably glued to your phone at all times anyway, a quick reminder popping up on the screen will do. 

3. Evernote 


Let me just say, I see Evernote as a great app for taking notes and making lists. You know, I love making lists so much. I could write one for anything. Evernote is the perfect app for that. Not only lists, though. It's the place for your blog topic ideas, other brainstorming ideas, etc. etc. You can access your contents anywhere and be productive wherever you are. 

4. GoTasks


Again, a great app for creating lists (you can even add subitems), appointments, reminders - just everything you'll ever need. 

5. Wunderlist


... is my favorite app to use. I have a dozen lists saved there and check off things like a boss. You can use this on your phone and have it synced to your Google or Facebook account and access the lists on your laptop. You can add reminders and due dates and always add a little note or subtask to your to-do-statement. I love the design of this and it's very user-friendly! 

6. Mail


This should be common sense but I'm adding it anyway. I have a personal E-Mail and one for business so I need both accounts to be online and I need to get notifications from both on my phone. Receive, read and send mails on the go-- Check. 


7. Google Drive / Dropbox


Both are awesome apps that help you store your stuff, whether you're on your phone or laptop. Never lose contents anymore, make back-ups and be safe on the go. Didn't have time to finish a post before heading out? Well, access your files anywhere! You can also make folders public and share them for others to see. (Google Drive / Dropbox)

8. Google Docs


I use this to start drafts for posts or to study on my way elsewhere. Jot down anything you want, anywhere. 

9. Shoebox


I have this app on my iPhone and it automatically saves pictures I take for back-up. Sometimes, for some reason, I happen to delete pictures unintentionally and I'm glad I don't have to stress about that anymore because the back-up is ready. It's free and there is unlimited photo storage.  

10. Scope / Hootsuite


... are apps that help create a personal news feed for most of your social network sites like Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Reddit so you won't have to jump from app to app anymore. (Scope / HootSuite)

11. Bloglovin


Oh, this one? That's an awesome feed reader for your phone! Read blog posts from blogs you follow and other blogs on your phone at one place. Perfect for bloggers and blog readers alike. 

12. Pinterest


I go here for inspiration, ideas, recipes and DIY ideas. I've never been into Pinterest before but now I am. What's there to complain? It's a cloud of inspiration. 


That's a wrap for now & now it's your turn to tell me about your favourite apps to use when it comes to blog reading, organising and keeping stuff safe! Can't wait to hear from you.

  21. Hahaha, I am the laziest blogger ever -- the most I can commit to is Bloglovin! I like using Twitter/Instagram to get word out about new posts/finding others, but I want to get into trying out other apps. Maybe get organized about what to post, ha!
