5 Must-Have Apps for Bloggers

generic smart phone with android operating system

Since I published 7 Tips for Christian Bloggers, people ask what apps and tools I use. So allow me to share a few of my secret blogging weapons.

Disclosure: I am not a paid endorser. I’m not that special šŸ˜„ All the apps referenced here are ones I use just cuz I like ’em.

  1. Snapseed: Google’s awesome free photo editor. Since I am a Google kind of gal, I like using apps developed by Google because they work seamlessly with Android devices. This is the app I use to combine images with quotes and Bible verses.
  2. Pixabay: This app provides users access to over a million high quality images that fall under the Creative Commons CC0 license. The CC0 license is the most liberal licensing available for content use.
  3. Merriam-Webster Dictionary: I don’t always pay for my apps, but when I do… they’re Merriam-Webster dictionaries. As a blogger, the only thing more important than ideas and pretty pictures is words. Right? I love this app so much. It also has a built-in thesaurus.
  4. Webster 1828 Dictionary: If you’re into theology, particularly of the Christian kind, an 1828 dictionary is a must. It’s a great reference for understanding language used in early American literature. Those old sermons, for example.
  5. Pinterest: It’s Pinterest. ‘Nuff said. Plus there are tons of great Bible study tips and ideas on here. It’s where I go for pinspiration. šŸ™‚

I’ve shown you mine, now show me yours. In the comment section, share what apps are invaluable to your blogging process.

Looking at the boring basics real fast:

Now let’s explore why Pinterest is like a pimp.
