  1. This is an awesome post especially because my blog is brand new and I am still learning. Blogging can be overwhelming but you really helped break down these tools and why they are important. Thank you for sharing your expertise.

    • Hi Tammy,

      It was my pleasure. Welcome to the blogging world! I’m so glad you got something out of this post. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about blogging.

      Wish you all the best!


  2. I absolutely LOVE this post, you have shared some very helpful information with us and I’m going to be bookmarking this and reading over it again to digest it further. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lots of great tools and resources here, Cori! I was not familiar with all of them, so thanks for the education. Definitely plan to check them out. Blogging is a lot of fun but laugh when people think it’s “easy”. It takes plenty of effort and work to make it successful! Happy Monday and have a great week, my friend!

  4. Hello Cori,

    It’s my maiden visit to you blog and I love the look and feel of it. Thank you for accepting my friend request on Facebook. It’s nice to connect with bloggers like you.

    Been blogging for little more than a year and I’m loving it in spite of all my responsibilities.

    Well I have been using a few tools you mentioned. I wasn’t aware of the other ways to drive traffic to my blog though. I made a note of them all and will see which ones works best for me. Oh! Never heard of ContentIdea before. So this will surely help me.

    It’s amazing how experienced bloggers like you find ways to write posts that helps newbie bloggers like me. Thank you:)

    Wish you a wonderful day and great start to the week:)

  5. These are wonderful tips for anyone in the blogging world. Sometimes we benefit the most from the ideas we bounce off of one another and the guidance from other social connections as well.

  6. Hey Cori,

    You really did your due diligence wit the list of tools. I heard of about half of the tools you mentioned here.

    As far as automated tools I use buffer and Revive Old Post which are great time saver. Buffer also help to brand yourself well whenever you share other people’s post.

    I’ve never heard of Flip boards and blog frog. I’m always open to other sites where I can share my post and grow my repuation.

    Thanks for sharing these great tools! Have a great weekend!

    • Thanks Liz! It took me a while to get used to Google Analytics…it’s got so much information we can use. 🙂

      I appreciate you coming by and leaving a comment. Have a great weekend!


  7. As far as I know Google stopped ranking pages a few years ago. It’s completely irrelevant like Alexa these days anyhow 🙂

    • True…but there are influence networks that still go by that data and until they update their requirements we still have to be aware of the numbers. I can’t wait for them to change it though. I agree those numbers are irrelevant and what counts is our engagement with our visitors.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts Robin. Have a great weekend!

  8. Great list of tools, my friend and thank you for the Grammarly love. I am still using the premium version and will never be without it again. It has saved my butt many times, especially when I was publishing ebooks. I’m using quite a few of what you have mentioned. I haven’t heard of ContentIdeator, but it sounds like a pretty good tool. There are so many headline generators out there that will even grade your headline for effectiveness. Go figure. Technology totally rocks, right?

    You know I’ll be passing this one along. Happy Friday girly!

    • You got it gf. You know, I used the premium version that I won from your giveaway. I had to let it go but I’ll definitely upgrade when I get ready to write an ebook.

      I think you’ll like ContentIdeator. It works like any other content generator but I think they have catchy titles :).

      Oh yeah, technology has definitely come a long way, yay for us :). Thanks for coming by and for your comment gf. I’m ready for the weekend!

      Have a great one yourself,

  9. Wow Cori,

    You’ve gone above and beyond here.
    What a helpful list!

    I added the Hello bar with the link you shared with me yesterday. I just clicked on Pixabay and I’m about to explore this now.

    There are so many options out there, it can be a bit overwhelming. It’s helpful when someone you know personally recommends things – especially when they’re doing well with the resources they’ve been using.

    Thanks so much 🙂
    Dana recently posted…How I Overcame My Eating DisordersMy Profile

    • Aw, thank you Dana. 🙂

      I think Hello Bar is definitely going to increase your subscriber list. What did you think of Pixabay?

      I like using tools other bloggers have tried too. I like to wait to read about their experience with it before jumping in. I’m glad this was helpful to you!

      Thanks for coming by and for your comment. I hope you’re having a great Friday. Have a great weekend.

  10. Hi Corina,

    Awesome indeed 🙂

    I loved all the blogging tools you mentioned and being bloggers I think most of us are already using many from the list here. I haven’t tried Hello Bar but heard a lot about it, and I love Hootesuite, Buffer, Triberr, and have recently joined Flipboard too. Hadn’t heard of BlogFrog so would be checking it out too.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful list with us – I know it’s going to help a lot of bloggers, so sharing it for sure. Happy Friday, and enjoy your coming weekend too. 🙂

    • Thank you Harleena.

      Yes, the good thing about the blogging community is that they are always willing to share the tools they used. That’s how I came up with this list…based on referrals :).

      Hello Bar has been great for my mailing list. I haven’t tried any others so I don’t have anything to compare it to :).

      I signed up for Flipboard but I haven’t taken the time to get acquainted with it, I’ll be doing that this weekend :).

      Blog Frogs is like Triberr but you can also share to Pinterest and Google as well as Facebook and Twitter. It’s about 4 years old.

      It was my pleasure Harleena. Thank you for coming by to read my post and for your comment.

      Have a wonderful weekend!
