Previous Post: The Illusion Of Social Media

Hello everyone and welcome back to Join The ME Project. After writing, Tech Review|Canva iOS App I realized that there were other free resources out there for bloggers that I thought you all should know about. So today, I will be breaking down my top 8 and I made up an infographic which will be at the bottom.

Let me know what you think of my list. If you made up your own list how would yours differ from mine? Tell me in the comments below.

Canva

Download

I use Canva to create the majority of the graphics you see on my blog and social media. It is very convenient to use and with the iOS app downloaded on my phone, I can create graphics on the go. (For a more in-depth review, please read Tech Review|Canva iOS App)

Unsplash

Website

Unsplash.com is my go to website for stock photos. In the beginning, I had a hard time finding some. I stumbled upon Unsplash and it serves all my needs. You can search by topic or theme.

Crowdfire

Download

I was very overwhelmed with the amount of social media I had taken on in the beginning. Using Crowdfire gives me an overview of my Twitter and blog. It also allows me to schedule posts.

Instagram Followers App

Download

I think by now we all know of the follow/unfollow game on Instagram. At this present time, I don’t really see it changing. It is really sad that people do it, I don’t honestly see how this helps them grow their platform. Using Followers+ doesn’t necessarily stop the problem, but it helps me keep track of the unfollowers.

Collabor8

Download

With Collabor8 you set up an account on the app and link your social media. You have the ability to contact brands or have brands contact you. Most transactions are done by either trade or pay. But you have control of when the transaction will take place. I think it’s a very handy app to have. So far I haven’t found another quite like it.

Grammarly Keyboard

Download

I started using it for the convenience but now I find myself lost without it. It makes writing a blog post or a quick tweet so easy. Spell checking and grammar, it’s all there. Just download the app and the keyboard to your phone.

Tailwind

Download / Website

Tailwind is a marketing tool associated with Pinterest and most recently, Instagram. It’s available online or in app form. It saves you time by scheduling your pins ahead of time.

Facebook Groups

In the very beginning, I had such a love-hate relationship with Facebook. I understood that it would be in my benefit to create a Facebook Page for my blog but I went about it in all the wrong ways. I hadn’t used the site since 2009 so I was a little rusty in what to do.

Making a page for my blog has created some traffic for my blog. But the biggest source of support has been finding other blog groups and communities. Sometimes it takes effort to find the right ones for you but the support you find within these communities is so helpful. I’ll list two of the ones I like below.
