Time is precious, and blogging can be so time consuming. Most of us blog alongside our day jobs, families and social commitments and it can be hard to squeeze it all in.
Whether your new to blogging or have been writing for a while; your probably more than aware of how much time it actually takes. It's definitely the main thing that I underestimated when I started out. Organisation and pre-planning is key to keeping your blog running smoothly and I have to admit this is something I've failed at miserably at.
Being productive and organised is the main thing I struggle with (mainly due to lack of time) so I've been making good use of these 5 apps for blogging on the go. Don't get me wrong I'm not a tecchy I'm a notebook girl at heart (I love putting pen to paper). But we're all addicted to our phones these days eh?
Genius invention. I'm not sure how I ever managed without this app. Its fabulous for noting down ideas, planning content or writing a whole blog post. You can create lists (who doesn't love a list), add photos and clippings. You can set reminders (a god send for me I'm soo forgetful). The best part is you can sync it to all your devices ready to paste into your blog post.
Twitter is a blogger's best friend and is such a brilliant media outlet in terms of blog promotion. I love Twitter but I'm an all or nothing girl. I'm either on it 24/7 or absent for days. Hootsuite is great for scheduling tweets in advance. Nothing spammy just a few a day to help with consistency and getting those blog posts promoted.
If your an instagram addict like me then Planoly is for you. This app helps you schedule your instagram posts in advance. Its super easy to use - Upload your pic with caption and hashtags then set a day and time to post. Your pic is saved to your Instagram grid and you're sent a reminder when its time to post. Easy. Plus it lets you switch around new posts on your grid so you can see how you pictures look next to one another. Perfect if your working on creating a dreamy theme.
I'm not obsessed with statistics but it is nice to check how my little blog is doing now and again. This app lets you see your page views, acquisition, audience and so much more. The app is really easy to use and you can set the date range to compare figures. I find it quite motivational and really useful for blog goal settings. Just be careful because it's quite addictive!
Olympus Pen Image Share
If you have an Olympus Pen Camera this app makes sharing photos so easy. Perfect for blogging on the go. You just sync your phone and camera together through wifi and you can upload pictures straight to your social media, email or Evernote. No more tedious uploading to your laptop. You can edit your pictures on the app and there's even a remote control setting to take pictures from your phone. Fabulous. (I'm thinking fo writing a post for Olympus Pen tips let me know if you'd me interested in reading...).
So these are my favourite five, hopefully you've found this useful? What helps you blog on the go? Which apps are you loving lately?
