Today I’ll share with you my favorite blog writing tools for beginners so you can get started creating great content.
Writing a blog post may sound like an overwhelming task for a lot of new bloggers.
The good news is that there are some pretty great tools available to make it a lot easier for you.
I will share with you all the free software I use so you do not have to spend a dime to get started.
You don’t necessarily have to use every tool listed here to create your blog post.
Try them out and pick the ones that work the best for you.
Ok, let’s get started!
1- Grammar Checker Tool: Grammarly
I just can’t express how much I love this tool.
Grammarly takes care of all the grammar, punctuation and presentation of your writing so you can focus only on sharing your knowledge.
I got so excited when I found out about it, Grammarly immediately cut down my editing times in half!
I was able to write freely my blog posts knowing that editing would be a breeze.
Another great thing I love about this grammar software is that it gives you an explanation for the suggested corrections.
This allows you to become a better writer automatically!
It can work as a standalone web application or you can also install the Chrome extension to your browser.
There is a Premium version available but the free version is perfect for you if you are just getting started.
2- Royalty-Free Images: Pixabay
I am a blogger, a content creator and a web marketer NOT a lawyer.
Copyright laws may be really complicated and that is why I rather not to take any chances.
Complains or problems for the use of the content you don’t have the rights for can become a real headache.
A great solution for this is using royalty-free images from the beginning.
Pixabay is an excellent directory with hundreds of different pictures you can use in your blog.
3- Content Idea Generator: BuzzSumo
You’ll get to a point where you don’t know what to write about anymore.
That is the perfect time to try BuzzSumo’s search engine.
It will show you the most popular content on the web and how many times it was shared on the most popular social media platforms.
Here you can get some pretty good ideas of what people are searching for in your niche.
Never copy someone else’s work, always aim to create better content than the rest.
4- My Workdesk Online: GSuite
Google has all the necessary tools I need to work from any computer in the world:
- Docs to write and review my blog posts.
- Sheets to organize my URLs, clients information and daily tasks.
- Slides to prepare presentations to my blogging students.
- Calendar to schedule my content calendar of the month.
- Drive to keep all my important files with me at all times.
It does not matter where I travel, as long as I have an Internet connection I can work as usual.
I don’t even have to think about saving important files or keep my eye on a flash drive as everything is managed online.
Google Suite is the greatest productivity bundle in my opinion.
Writing blog posts has never been easier with so many tools available.
Try them out and I guarantee that you will increase your productivity and feel more comfortable writing.
Remember to always share your content after you publish it to bring new eyes to your blog!
