No matter if you are a beginner or professional, you probably miss out on tools here and there. Most of the time they would save you hours of work every week and that’s why I wanted to show you the best tools for blogging.

It is what it sounds like: A tool that corrects your grammar. It’s very helpful if you don´t wanna test read the whole blog post you just wrote. I even use it on social media since english isn’t my first language and sometimes writing can get hectic and weird. There is a free version and a paid version. In the beginning the free version is absolutely enough, but if you want to work more efficiently and know more about your writing and how it could improve you should pay for it since it gives you TONS of statistics on your writing.


Most of you probably know this tool but maybe there are some of you that never heard of it. Tailwind is a tool that helps you with Pinterest pinning. Pinterest is the number one source of views for most bloggers at the moment so this tool helps a lot when it comes to page views and growing a following. Tailwind is a Pinterest and Instagram partner and costs 10$ /month on the cheapest plan. It might be a big investment for some of you but believe me when I say you won’t regret it.

Creative Market

This is the number one place to get products related to your branding. They have website designs (which I talked about in the last blog post), logos, fonts and pretty much everything you can connect to it. I use their site pretty frequently and love their weekly free downloads that they offer for everyone that´s a user of their site. If you wanna test them out I would recommend to go to the “Free Goods” section and you will not be disappointed. In my opinion it’s the best thing that ever happened to small business owners and bloggers.


This is what I do my editorial calendar with and it’s free unless you use it a lot (you will at some point after trying it out). It’s a board tool that helps you organize projects, calendars and pretty much everything you can write down. Every board can have one add-on added to it in the free version. In the case of my editorial calendar it´s the calendar tool. I love the simplicity of it and it helps me a LOT with my overwhelm. If I don’t know what to do I just look at my board and have everything organized.


This is an investment but it is worth it. I bought Lightroom when I was 16 and I didn´t stop using it for my photo editing. If you want something like VSCO in high quality on your computer you should use Lightroom. I have tons of free presets that I can put on pictures and I edit pretty much all my Instagram and blog pictures with it. There isn’t a lot to say about it other than: Watch a few videos of people working with Lightroom and you will be amazed how insanely good it makes pictures look.

Theses were the best tools for blogging…or 5 of them. There is definitely more but these are my essentials and save me a lot of time and stress. If you have a tool that saves you tons of time you should leave me a comment since I always look for time savers.
