I’ve been in the blogging game for a whopping ten years. However, I was not well informed about blogging at the beginning of my journey. It took me a while to get a grasp of things and to be quite honest, I am still learning and have yet to reach my full potential. I have always been intrigued by reading relatable blog posts or people’s experiences. The first thing I did when we decided to move to Egypt was looking for blogs that could tell me what it is like to live in Egypt with children. However, I couldn’t find anything identifiable. Consequently, I decided to create a blog and share what it’s like to be an ex-pat mother and live like a local in Egypt.
Blogging seems more straightforward than it is. There is a lot of tedious work in the background that I didn’t predict. I have made many mistakes along the way. Luckily I’m here to share what I’ve learned through these years so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did. Best of all, the recourses I’m about to share are all free. The most important tool I’m currently using as I type these words is drum roll,,,,,
Thank god for this invention, as I am terrible at spelling and making many grammar mistakes. Grammarly facilitates my writing, therefore enjoyable to my readers.
The second tool would be canvas. Canva is every content creator’s best friend. You can do all of your content using Canva, and it’s so easy to use.
Unsplash is a platform that allows you to use their pictures for free for any content you want to create. It’s a phenomenal tool that every blogger should take advantage of.
Pexel advertises on its website to be the best free stock photos, royalty-free images, and videos shared by creators. I cannot agree more, the creators are extraordinarily talented and the photos produced are top-notch.
Pinterest is your best friend if you want to start blogging. Most of the posts you end up writing will be shared on Pinterest. Pinterest has guzzling active users so it’s evident that one should take total usage of this platform.
Lastly, headline studios will help you write the best titles for your post that will promote the most traffic to your website and blog.
Blogging is not as easy as one might think. Creating one post takes a lot of work, such as researching your topic, creating banners, marketing, writing, and much more. These free tools are available to make your blogging journey as easy as possible. One of my dreams would be to make a living through blogging which can’t be accomplished without any of these tools. I would love to know which means you have found to be the most helpful for blogging.
