5 Apps For More Organized And Efficient Blogging

5 Apps For More Organized And Efficient Blogging

Writing, writing, writing… photography… editing… publishing… promoting…

 

Blogging can be a lot of work.

 

With right tools and apps, it can be more organized and faster. I use a lot of apps, I like to test new apps, but here are 5 of my favorites one and how I use them to keep my blogging routine running smoothly.

 

Meistertask: For task

Nothing new here. 🙂 If you follow my blog, you probably know I like Meistertask and use it to track all my blog post ideas. I organized them by themes so I can easily check it when planning new blog posts. I also use it to track all my task for a specific blog post.

 

Google Calendar: For planning blog post, monthly blog to do

For planning my blog post I use Google Calendar and printable version (more about printable). I like to plan my blog post in Google Calendar because I can simply rearrange post, or change them for some other themes. I also like to have access to my calendar on the way and when I am not next to my printable one.

 

 

Google Drive: For writing, sharing + editing files

I write all my post in Google Docs. In Google Drive I have a folder “Blog” and for every blog post sub-folder. In this folder I store Google Docs with blog post text and images I would like to add, I also add everything else in this subfolder (freebies, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator files…). Why Google Drive? Because I can then access from my other computer, phone… everywhere and anywhere 🙂

 

Photoshop: For photo editing

For editing photos, I always use Photoshop, for graphics I use Illustrator, for freebies I use InDesign. Yes, I love Adobe products 🙂 First I export photos from my camera and edit raw images and if needed edit theme even more. I save them from the web in a smaller size.

 

JPEGmini Pro: For image optimization

I prefer to optimize images before uploading them. For optimization, I use JPEGmini – definitely my favorite app for smaller images sizes. Before JPEGmini, I used ImageOptim – also a great app, but JPEGmini do a better job.

 
p.s. today I have also sent new template for planning blog post in August, if you don’t know what I talking about, you should check this post.

    Haven’t heard of any of these except Google Docs.

    Just a question, where is MeisterTask available? Just on Android or is it in iTunes?

    Cheers.

    Nice list. I’ll have to check out MeisterTask…oh wait, maybe not if they don’t have an Android version. There’s probably something similar though? Right now I use about 8 different notebooks plus Evernote so I’m not that organized with keeping track of ideas! I use CoSchedule for scheduling posts, which I love. Evernote is actually amazing but I need to remember to put notes there instead of a in a bunch of random notebooks..lol. I use Photoshop for editing too and just save my images for web from there, and then use the WP Smush plug-in for further compression when I upload. Thanks for sharing these!

    Thanks for sharing those apps! I usually prefer paper-pen orginazing stuff, but just realize that it take too much time :/ So I will definitely try them 🙂 And also good advice about using a google drive … so that you can really have an access to your blog writing everywhere you go 🙂

      Yes, it can be time-consuming and the best thing is that you can always access everything on your phone. 🙂
