If blogging is your thing, you know that it’s essential always to ensure your work is top-notch before pushing it out into the world. That’s why having a good set of blogging tools for checking and double-checking your writing can be invaluable. I’m always running my blog posts through four essential tools:
– Headline Studio
– Capitalise My Title
Let’s look at these in more detail.
Grammarly is an absolute blogging must. It scans your work for any grammar, spelling or punctuation errors you may have missed and then suggests corrections – making it easy to turn out quality content every single time.
You can use the free version, which works just great, or you can upgrade to the premium version if you want more features, such as
– Everything in the free version
– Full Sentence rewrites
– Word Choice
– Tone Suggestions
These are not a must-have, but I recently upgraded and have found them beneficial.
It’s important to ensure your headlines pull readers in, so I always use Headline Studio by coschedule. It helps you brainstorm a tonne of different headline ideas and suggests the best ones based on features such as clarity, word count, emotion and readability.
When you enter a title, it will come back to you with a score for each headline you enter. This helps you decide which one will work best and capture the most attention from your readers. I also like how the score is colour-coded for quick reference too.
Again you can use this for free, but there is also a premium version for even more features, including Smart Suggestions and SEO Score.
This tool helps me ensure my blogging titles look as good as they sound. This nifty tool quickly capitalises everything from small words to proper nouns – so every blog post looks professional, regardless of the content.
All you have to do is enter your title into the text box and hit enter. Once it’s done, it’s thing, and your title is capitalised correctly, you hit the copy button, and you’re done. This tool will also provide you with a headline score which, if you click on will give you more insight into readability and SEO.
This is a free tool.
Lastly, TinyJPG helps ensure that my blogging images are optimised for faster loading times without compromising quality. It’s a quick and easy way to ensure my blog posts look great, even on slower internet connections.
It is straightforward to use. You drag and drop your image into the box on the website, and it will compress the image in seconds. Once it’s finished, download your image, and it’s ready to use on your blog post.
When it comes to blogging, these four tools are a must-have. They help ensure that my posts are error-free, SEO-friendly and optimised for the best possible user experience – benefits that speak for themselves! So don’t forget to give them a try before publishing your next blog post. Happy blogging! You won’t regret it.
