Let’s face it, blogging can be time consuming. Doing research, putting your thoughts together, adding any necessary screenshots and images. Let’s not forget the optimization part (SEO, keywords, etc) and sharing your content on the Web so that others will read it and hopefully share it. Lucky for us, the process doesn’t have to be so difficult anymore. Thanks to the Web and technology, there are hundreds of apps out there to assist your blogging process and make it less time consuming, especially on the fly. Here are a few of my favorites apps/tools that I use on a daily basis.
Do you make photo collages? This will help you make them in style. With literally hundreds of combinations, this is a go to app for any blogger on the go.
Vine is an app that enables its users to create and post short video clips. Video clips created with Vine have a maximum length of six seconds and can be shared on a variety of social networking services, such as Twitter or Facebook.
You can capture anything from Web pages to images, text, and voice notes with Evernote. Your notes can be accessed from just about anywhere from a computer or iPad to a mobile device. Also, with the ability to search through all of your notes, you’ll be able to find things super fast.
Dropbox is the ultimate tool for syncing files between your computer and mobile devices. There is a Dropbox app for just about every device and system and there even more integrations with other apps. So not only are your files always secure, but they’re always with you wherever you go. If you need to save files for use later, just add them to Dropbox or sync them using a supported app. Then you will always have files wherever you are.
If you’re looking for a great way to access your blog posts from anywhere, the best option is to create and save them in Google Docs. Google Docs is a Web based system, you can access your account no matter what device you’re on. This allows you to work on the go, from anywhere. You can also collaborate in real-time with others, which makes Google Docs great for collaborative posts and projects. You can also save them for use later as they are compatible with both MS Office and iWork.
