Being a blogger often means you are always on the go, far away from the office and a desktop computer. You probably don’t have an office, just a laptop. Usually, people who get bored with the office work decide to become bloggers and use their writing skills to earn money. The thing is, every blogger has a freedom of movement and he or she is not attached to one town or country. Many bloggers choose to travel around the world and enjoy blogging in different environments.
Whether you travel a lot while blogging or you’ve stayed in your town and run a blog, chances are you will often be in situations when you need to complete some job remotely (on the plane, in the public transport etc.). If you don’t want to bring around your laptop every time you leave the apartment, you can still rely on your mobile phone. Luckily there are a lot of mobile apps that can help you finish your blogging activities on the go. Here are some of the must-have apps to save you in every occasion:
You can use the same app to edit reuse invoice documents and send them quickly to a new client, or any kind of financial data.
Having issues with the blog. Running a blog requires full-time involvement. You never know when you will receive a rude comment on the blog, that can harm your blog reputation. Moreover, it happens from time to time that broken links appear on the blog, or images just disappear if you happen to use images from public libraries. From all these situations you can learn one thing- it is better to bring your blog with you all the time.
The best way to have access to your blog is to have WordPress app installed on your phone. In that way, you will be able to quickly moderate comments, remove broken links and images and track stats.
Struggling with dates and deadlines.
When you write for a living, it’s all about doing a lot research and writing for your blog and for other blogs and maybe even clients. Too many articles to write or to edit means too many dates and deadlines to remember. If you don’t want to get stressed about such things, you can use note taking apps and reminders that will keep track of everything and make sure you get notified on time.
One such app is AnyDO that help you stay organized by making to-do lists, setting up alarms and reminders, schedule meetings etc. This app can be synced to other devices so wherever you login you can have access to your notes.
Being short on time.
Imagine you got an opportunity to write a post on a famous blog or someone wants to pay for your writing services, but they gave you the short deadline. There is a solution to that problem as well- you can do the research on the go and when you get back to your laptop you can start writing without losing time on research.
Pocket is a must-have app for every blogger because it saves articles and videos you find so you can use them later. For instance, you are in the public transport or somewhere downtown, you do the research you need for the article and bookmark all the research you found, with the help of this app.
The article requires further edits.
Imagine you have sent the article to be published and the client or the owner of that website where you submitted the article, asked for some changes to be made. If the article you sent was in PDF form, because that was the only way to be sure the article will keep the formatting, you are in trouble. If you don’t want to run back home, you can convert the article from PDF to Word and make necessary edits in Word document.
For solving this issue, you should try the app called PDF to Word Converter which turns both native and scanned files from PDF to Word format. Even if you don’t have an article on your phone, but somewhere in the cloud, with this app you can easily locate PDF files stored on Gmail, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, iCloud and Dropbox.
Just got a creative moment and you are not able to write.
All bloggers know that it is sometimes hard to get inspired and write in full potential. There are days when your writing skills simply disappear. All of a sudden, you get a creative boost, but you are on foot and not able to write. Why don’t you record your text?
Yes, that’s right, you can use iSpeech to record your speech and turn it to text. Even if you are having a walk and you’ve just thought of some really good lines for the text, speak them loud and the app will turn your voice to text.
With all this new technology and mobile apps, you will save your times and nerves by solving all these blogging issues on the go.
