Hello Lovely People !I've been blogging now for around two years and although it is hard work it is also incredibly rewarding and I absolutely love helping all of you lovely people to find the silver linings in your lives. I loved blogging from the very beginning but despite this, there are definitely a few apps that I would have been very grateful for when I first started out ! So today, I thought I'd share some of those with you .
Blogger ( Or the App of whichever platform you use ) - FreeAlthough this is rather an obvious one, this is great especially when you first start blogging and are not used to sticking to a posting schedule. When I first started out I used blogger to post when I remembered on the bus home that I'd completely forgotten to post. It's a great way to keep on track and I also use it to check that my blog is running well on mobiles.
Buffer - Free ( In app purchases )Buffer allows you to write social media updates in advance and set them to post at a particular time ! This app is a life saver and I still use it now. Every morning on the bus to college I write three tweets to go online throughout the day and then I don't have to worry about it !
Google Keep - FreeI only recently discovered Google Keep.You can write colour coded notes or lists that are presented in the style of post it notes. It's perfect for writing down all your wonderful blog ideas on the go . But what makes it really special is that when you log into your google account on your computer then you can open the notes there which makes it much easier to transfer your notes into blog posts.
Rhonna Designs - £.1.49Rhonna Designs is the only bought app on my phone but it is more than worth the tiny price. You can use their pretty backgrounds or your own photos and add words in a wide range of text styles and adorable stickers. I use this app for every blog post I write and wouldn't swap it for anything.
Outlook - FreeWhen you become a blogger you become obsessed with checking your emails ( Well... at least I am... please tell me I'm not the only one ) and it's so important to be able to access them quickly in order to give efficient replies to both your audience and anybody who is contacting you to work with you. I honestly don't know where I'd be without my emails on my phone, I'd never get back to anybody.
What apps do you wish that you had when you first started out blogging ? Have you tried any of the ones I've mentioned? What's your number one app ? I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments so that we can all learn from each other!
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
lots of love, Marianne xxx
