Being a blogger is kinda tough because it’s not like something you get to learn in a 3-month course — it’s a field where you learn something new every day once you open your blog.
It’s a misconception to think that being a blogger is easy, the writing part is probably the easy part. We have to ‘sculpt’ what we wrote to make everything more appealing, create eye-popping visuals and the last and probably most important thing is to promote what we create.
To ease some of the pain and make your life easier, today I am going to show you 5 tools that you need as a blogger, it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or ‘advanced’, those tools may help you level up your blogging game BIG TIME!
As I was saying, most bloggers, including me, have to edit what we wrote to make everything more appealing and easier to read or understand — Grammarly will detect every grammar mistake that you’ve made and even come up with synonym suggestions.
It’s almost like having a second read, except this is a browser extension. Did I mention it’s free? Because it is.
This is by far my favorite. I picked up a lot of photo editing skills from this site. I just typed ‘Blogging’ in the search box and 363 classes came up, from learning how to create better content to how to set up your first blog. I highly recommend this website.

Sometimes I feel very uninspired to create eye-catching visuals and then I head over to Canva and see so many amazing free or extremely cheap graphics that I can use for my blog. Actually, this blog posts featured image is made on Canva 😉
You don’t have any new blog posts ideas?! That’s okay because this blog ideas generator will do WONDERS! And if you do have a blog post but don’t have an attractive idea for a tittle… this tool will help you too.
#5 A Social Media Scheduler
After you publish a fresh new post, it’s time to promote it on social media. This will take you a very long time especially because you shouldn’t rely just on one single social media post but on multiple posts across all of the platforms… So think about.. 2-3 tweets that day, 2-3 Facebook posts, maybe Instagram Stories or a whole Instagram post. All of these shall be posted at different times so you will reach new people every single time.
I truly believe that all of these tools will save you a lot of time. What other tools do you guys use and recommend? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
