11 Blog Resources That Made My Blogging Life Easier

Wednesday, November 06, 2019

Hello, gorgeousness. I know it can be quite a challenge to find things that actually help your blog. I, myself spent hours upon hours researching websites and apps that could help me organize my blogging life.

I have been meaning to do this post so I've gathered quite a few blogging tools and resources that I love to use and has made my blogging life easier. Some of these I discovered through other bloggers and others I found randomly. You don't need all of them, of course, but I used them for my blog every time! Hopefully, these will save you the headache of scouring the internet for the best resources.


Photography/ Editing Apps

Snapseed - This photo editing app is one of my go-to's to edit my blog photos. Snapseed is a powerful editing tool with an easy to use interface that helped improve my blog photography. It has great features and functionality. It also has this amazing 'brush' tool to spot adjust exposure and saturation - I love it to bits!

Lightroom - I occasionally use Lightroom for my blog photos. Most of the time when I'm not satisfied with Snapseed, then I'll use Lightroom. A little heads up, Lightroom is a paid app but worth paying in my opinion.

Canva - I love Canva mainly because I get so inspired to create beautiful graphics and its flexibility! It has nice templates and completely free (there are also paid ones so if you don't mind spending a lil bit of money, go ahead) that I love to use for my IG story every time I updated my blog.

Logopit Plus - A stunning app I used to create my header. The app is pretty simple, straightforward and easy to navigate. You can absolutely do more things with it but I love it as my header maker.

Phonto - If I want to add a certain text to a photo, this is my bestie. It allows me to download my own desired fonts and it's pretty easy to use.

VSCO - VSCO's sharpening and tint tools are pretty decent in my opinion. It has tons of pretty filters too, of course, but for the most part, I love those two functions.

Writing/ Content Creation

Grammarly - Probably the app that has helped me big time with my blog. It's a great app for bloggers whose native language is not English. It detects and corrects grammatical errors, suggests better words for your article and helps construct better sentences in more cohesive ways.

Portent - This website basically helps me generate amazing titles for most of my blog posts. Sometimes when you have a bomb ass article to put up on the blog, you gotta have the most appealing and attention-grabbing kinda title to go with it. There is where Portent comes in.

Stock Photos

Sometimes when you don't have the time to take pictures for your blog, stock photos are always a great alternative. It's totally free and fast. My absolutely favorite websites are Unsplash and Pexels.

Analytics/ Tracking

Statcounter - I love Statcounter. It's not as detailed (and complicated) as Google Analytics but I used Statcounter to just see basic statistics and to see who has visited my blog and where they've come from and whatnot. It's really good for small blogs like mine.

I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know your favorite blogging resources you're using for your blog!

    1. It's super easy! All you have to do is insert a word, or maybe two or three that you want the title to be based around and it will generate lots of amazing headlines by itself. Then just choose the one that piques your interest! xx
