4 APPS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE A WHOLE LOT EASIER AS A BLOGGER


Today's post is a bit different one! I've been on a hunt for good apps just to make my life easier. Living with a baby, moving, renovating, life - all that makes you extremely busy at the times & then you should find time to write as well and then take the pictures. I've been extremely busy doing nothing lately, so I decided I'd recommend some apps for you (like no one hasn't done it before) just to make your lives easier (or more complicated, who knows)!


SNAPSEED
I can not praise this app enough. And I'm all in for free apps.
Snapseed is a photo editing tool, which makes my life a whole lot easier when it comes to Instagram pictures. I don't need to transfer pictures from the camera to our iMac, then edit them with the Lightroom and then transfer those edited pictures back to my phone so I can download them into Instagram. No, no, no. Now I'm able to transfer the pictures from the camera to my phone, then edit them with Snapseed & download them to Instagram. Would you like some photo editing tips on Snapseed by the way? Everything is for VSCO, at least the ones I've seen and I've gone through so much work with it so I'd be a horrible person not to share it with anyone. Would you fancy Snapseed tutorials over here?


PREVIEW
So I've got the free version of this, but if you want to go Pro I won't keep you from doing so. For me, the free version has been perfect. I've recently started to plan ahead my Instagram feed for a little and that's when this app comes handy. You can preview (pun intended) your feed, move pictures in a different order and you can actually see what your feed would look like. You can also schedule your posts with this app, but as you know Instagram hasn't authorised any other app to publish pictures for you, you can only set some daily reminders at the times you'd post the picture. Anyhow, this is perfect for previewing your feed and unlike the 'Drafts' part on the Instagram, you can actually move your photos in a new order to make your feed look better.


BUFFER
I like to Buffer my tweets and FB posts over at my blog's FB page and my Twitter. It makes life and promoting your posts so much easier. Another scheduler app is Tweetdeck, which I do use but I'm using it more for the posts/links I want to tweet forever.
Example:
Buffer - scheduling tweets about your latest blog posts
Tweetdeck: scheduling tweets promoting your other social media accounts, or you know - sponsored posts.
The free version of Buffer lets you schedule only 10 tweets at a time and I think that is good for me. It's easy to use and it lets you know when it has run out of tweets to post.


HYPETYPE
You can create some cool pictures to your Instagram stories, with that text that just pops out of nowhere. I'm a huge fan of these, but they take a bit of time to make - so I haven't used it as often as I've used to use it.

What kind of apps do you use to make your life easier during the busy days?

  1. I need to check Hype Type out. I keep seeing these amazing insta stories people have and I had no idea how to make them. So I will have to look into that app. Also I never thought about using both Buffer and Tweetdeck! I just use Buffer so I will have to start using both!!
