Useful tools for bloggers and writers

The Internet is full of written content and some of the most popular and most wanted writing jobs are precisely those that involve writing for the web. No matter if you write blogs, e-books, content for websites or anything else, it is necessary to organize your time and work in order to be efficient and create good and meaningful texts. This is why in this article we will present you with some of the tools you may find useful in all the phases of writing.

Brainstorming the ideas – each writing begins with brainstorming, and in order for it to be fruitful, you need to know how to expand the ideas and explore them further. For this purpose you can use Quora, a website rich in the questions real people ask, which you can give answers to by writing a blog on the topic. This will help you to find inspiration and write about the topics people really want and need to read about. For creating a catchy title, Portent Title Maker is there to help you. All you need to do is enter your subject, and you will get the idea of a title. You can refresh the results as many times as you like and get the new ideas.

Organizing the ideas
– when you have several ideas, it is important to organize them properly. One of the tools that can help you do this is Evernote, which is great for collecting and organizing ideas fast, and categorizing them according to various criteria.You can also use Google Calendar, which allows you to schedule the posts for publishing, which is especially useful if you plan to publish several posts over a certain course of time.

Creating optimized content – as a writer, you know that a content, which is not properly optimized, is practically worthless. To see whether the topic you write about is popular, you can run it through Google Trends and see the results. For generating popular and relevant keywords, you can use a Keyword Planner.

It allows you to enter the keywords you think are appropriate, and it shows you their popularity and search volume. You also get the related keywords, which can serve as an inspiration for you.

Writing faster and easier – In order to be productive, it is important to organize the writing process. This is why you can write the text directly in the blog software you use, and you can also use Google Docs if you collaborate with others (e.g. if they proofread your content).

You can also use Toggle, which is a fun, yet very useful tool for time tracking. It tracks your activities during the writing process and shows you how much time you spent actually working.

Distributing and sharing the content – after your blog or other text has been written, proofread, optimized and finally published, it is time to share it with others. You can do it easily by using Buffer, which allows you to schedule the publishing of your content on various social networks as it gets published.

If you write in WordPress, you can also use Filament plugin for this purpose and set on which social networks you want your post to be published once it’s completed.
