Best Writing Tools for Bloggers

Who does not like to get a helping hand while doing their tasks? I am sure everybody does. So do the bloggers. For bloggers writing tools could be like best buddies who judge them but only to correct them. Writing tools just guide you. In the end, you have to make the changes on your own.

Here is a list of top 7 writing tools:

  1. Grammarly

Grammarly, as the name suggests, is an online instant grammar checking tool which would just enlighten your path to achieve a better English standard.

It provides you all the basics of editing include commas, exclamation points, context, spelling, metaphor and much more. Though it does not complete your work, it is definitely a helping hand. It also points towards the words or phrases and suggests some eye-catching alternatives.

But if you are into changing active to passive to get your way through your content then you have a very strict teacher here so be ready for a rude awakening.

It supports you with a huge set of options to choose from. In the basic mode, it checks for the sentence structure, style, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Furthermore, It would guide you via plagiarism to check whether you have borrowed someone’s words unintentionally.

  1. Copyscape

Copyscape, the most widely used tool is the benchmark for all the plagiarism checkers. If any of the content you paid for is copied, Copyscape will search the internet inside out and let you know.

No matter how small or large content you provide Copyscape is at your service. It offers both free and premium services. In free service, it allows basic but limited searches and comparisons per month whereas in Premium version it offers much more and suits well to large businesses with huge content.

  1. Hemingway Editor

Hemingway Editor is a simple yet effective tool as it works on the most common problems that arise in content writing. It points towards the overuse of adverbs, grammatical errors, long or extra long complex sentences and frequent usage of passive voice. Though it does not describe how to correct them, it points to the inadvertent incidents for you to cover up.

  1. Google Docs

Though it is a simple document file but it checks grammar and spellings like none else. So many bloggers prefer writing in Google Docs to keep a check on the content they right. It is a tool that helps you write easier but faster.

Plus, since this is entirely on the cloud, if you have a team of writers working on the same document, you can do so easily.

  1. Keyword planner

Writing content is an easy task but to create a well-optimized content you might need some assistance. This is especially true when writing for a keyword and well-optimized content.

Keyword planner provides you that little assistance to optimize your content. It is really simple to use, you just have to type the keyword of your choice and keyword planner would provide you the statistics (popularity/search volume) of the keyword.

  1. Toggl

Toggl is a time tracking tool. It works well for bloggers who want to keep a check on the time while doing their activities. It provides you with start/stop button you can push start when you start your task and push stop when you are done. It actually allows you to keep a check on how efficiently you spend your time and on what task.

  1. Written? Kitten!

“Written? Kitten!” is an exciting yet effective tool which motivates you while you are writing. It allows you to set a number which can be 100, 200, 500 or any number of your choice and you will see the cutest kitty on your screen once you hit the target.

I am a kitty lover so it works for me very well but if you are not you can go for a puppy or a rabbit.

Conclusion

We all know that every coin has two sides same goes with the tools. They could be as efficient as people using them, so for tools to be of help to you, it is up to you to choose and decide whether you can rely on them completely for your blog post or not.

They are definitely helpful provided you are smart enough to understand and get your work done in the best possible way.
