I wouldn’t call myself an expert and neither should you. BUT, sometimes people ask me what my favorite blogging tools are, so Imma let you know. Right here. Right now. Let’s do this.
Postcron: Lest you think I am on the Internet all day long, I actually use this FREE service that allows me to schedule all of my Facebook touts and Twitter tweets. You can also upgrade your account for pretty much unlimited posting. Otherwise you can schedule 10 posts at a time. Honestly, I don’t have enough creativity at the ready to do more than that.
Mad Mimi: I’ve tried MailChimp. A lot of people swear by it. But, it was just too confusing to me. I consider myself a fairly intelligent person, so there’s that too. Do yourself a favor and make the easy switch to Mad Mimi and easily send out your blog posts and newsletters via email to any willing subscribers.
PicMonkey: For all of my important posts…ha. Let me start again. For all of the posts that I spend way too much time on, I like to have a highly pinnable image so y’all can get that stuff on Pinterest. You do that for me, correct? Anyway, PicMonkey is the, by far, easiest way to create one.
inlinkz: How do you think I do all of these incredible #5Faves and tl;drs for you? I love that they have the option to pay $2 a month rather than buying a big ol’ subscription. So, if you are just a one and done link up hoster, you don’t have to spend a fortune.
Picasa: For all of my complicated collage needs – like the one above. Much fancy. Wow.

I love Canva for graphics – I go back and forth between them and Pic Monkey! Thanks for hosting!

Oh gosh, I’ve been trying to learn how to use MailChimp and I still feel completely lost. Hadn’t heard of MadMimi – maybe I need to switch over???

New Toys (I mean tools)… so excited!! Postcron and Madmimi are totally NEW to me ! Can’t wait to play, (I mean work!!)… Thanks!
Awesome! Thanks for the tips! I love picmonkey, but curious if you use the royale version or not? I don’t but am tempted to sometimes.
