When you’re finding amazing content to share on social media—the kind of thing that grabs attention and gets people to click, share, and comment—one of the most valuable, most original places to turn is your own blog and the content you personally create.

So the questions become: How to create amazing content, how to put together blogposts strategically and efficiently, and how to get your content out to the masses.

Writing tips are a good place to start. And to supplement the words you use to build your blogposts, I’ve found a huge number of blogging tools that help with everything from coming up with ideas to spread the content far and wide.

Do you have a favorite blogging tool? Read on to see if it’s included here in the list, and drop a note in the comments with which ones you love.

The Huge List of 39 Blogging Tools

Tools to brainstorm blogging ideas

1. Quora

The crowdsourced answer website can help lead you to the types of questions that real people are asking, questions that you can answer in-depth with a blogpost. Search for your keyword, and follow topics related to your blog’s focus.

quora topic

2. BuzzSumo

Enter a topic or a URL into the BuzzSumo search box, and you’ll get a wealth of information on the content that performs best for social media sharing. BuzzSumo can be super useful for fleshing out an existing idea to find the perfect angle or in taking a broad look at the content that does well (and the blogs who do it best) in your niche.

3. Quick Sprout

Enter a URL into Quick Sprout, and you get an analysis of the site’s performance and content. The “Social Media” tab shows you which posts from the site have been home runs, and you can take inspiration from the highlights on the list.

4. Portent Title Maker

Enter a subject into the Portent tool, and you’ll get a sample blogpost title, complete with helpful and witty breakdowns of why the title might make for a good read. Refresh as many times as you’d like for new ideas.

portent title maker

5. Blog Topics Generator

HubSpot’s title maker works similarly to Portent’s. With the HubSpot tool, you can enter three keywords, and HubSpot will give you five titles—a week’s worth of content—to work with.

hubspot blog post generator

 

6. Twitter trending topics

The trending topics section on your Twitter homepage can be a super spot for grabbing ideas from the latest news. You can tailor your trending topics to go uber-local (the big cities near and around you) or even receive fully tailored tweets that take into account your location and those you follow. (Click the “Change” link at the top of the Trends section on your Twitter homepage.)

7. LinkedIn Pulse

Similar to Twitter’s trending topics, LinkedIn Pulse pulls content from the channels you follow on LinkedIn and the people in your LinkedIn network.

For additional trending topics on social media, you can check out Facebook’s Trending section and Google+’s What’s Hot page.

Tools to organize your ideas

8. Trello

We like to add all our blogpost ideas into Trello, turning each idea into a card that we can spec out with notes and move from list to list with a simple drag-and-drop.

9. Evernote

For super fast idea collecting, you can drop everything into Evernote—notes, snippets, photos, webpages, and more. The tagging system in Evernote is incredibly robust, so you can keep your ideas with a simple tag in a number of cool ways—by topic, by idea stage, and more.

10. Google Calendar

Calendar tools like Google Calendar can be repurposed as editorial calendars. If publishing one post per day, you can save your ideas as all-day events and move them around the calendar as needed. If you plan on scheduling multiple posts, add a calendar event to the specific publish time. Zoom in and out to see what you’ve got planned for a given day, week, or month.

calendar agenda

11. Todoist

Place your ideas into a to-do list where you can schedule when blogposts might go live and break down the blogpost writing process into manageable steps. Todoist lets you collaborate on shared tasks with a team, too.

12. Wunderlist

Another useful to-do list tool, Wunderlist can help you keep your ideas sorted into tasks and subtasks. Even consider adding a listicle idea and creating subtasks for each of the list items you want to add.

13. Dropbox

When your ideas come with files, Dropbox is one of the best spots to store and share things like pdfs, Word Docs, design files, photos, and more.

Tools to create well-optimized content

14. Google Trends

Is your blogpost idea a popular one? You can run the topic through Google Trends to see search volume for the different keywords and phrases you’re considering using.

google trends

15. Keyword Planner

How do you frame your awesome idea into a far-reaching blogpost (that people can easily find)? Check for popular keywords. Google’s Keyword Planner lets you enter a series of keywords, and Google returns results on search volume and popularity as well as related keywords that might spark an idea for you.

keyword planner

16. Keywordtool.io

An alternative to Google’s Keyword Planner, Keyword Tool returns up to 750 suggestions for every keyword you enter.

(For yet another keyword tool alternative, take SERP Stat for a spin.)

17. Yoast WordPress SEO plugin

SEO plugins can help you fine tune your idea and blogpost into a specific keyword or phrase that will help with search results and help keep your blogpost focused. With Yoast’s plugin, you can type in the keyword that you’re after, and Yoast tells you how many different spots on the page the post appears and a nice green dot for when you’re ready to go.

Tools to help you write easier and faster

18. Google Docs

Many bloggers go straight to the writing editor in their blog software (WordPress, Ghost, etc.). You can also consider writing in Google Docs for collaborating with others and tapping into the extra power of Google Docs’ spelling and grammar tools.

19. Egg Timer

A super simple timer, tell Egg Timer how long you want to work—15 minutes for research, 40 minutes to write a draft, etc.—and Egg Timer will count down the time. When time’s up, a popup appears and the timer sounds.

20. Toggl

One of the most straightforward and fun time tracking tools you’ll find, Toggl lets you add a task, push the Start/Stop button, and check back in to see a full dashboard of stats on how you spend your time. It could be really useful for bloggers who want to focus on the time they spend writing, researching, and editing.

toggle

21. Hemingway

A really interesting free marketing tool, Hemingway analyzes your text for readability, highlighting sentences that are a bit too complex or dense. The readability for the list post you’re reading now: A seventh grade reading level.

22. Grammarly

Copy and paste your article into Grammarly’s online grammar checker to how it performs against checks for spelling, sentence structure, punctuation, style, and more. The initial score is free to see. The specifics of what to change (as well as suggestions from Grammarly) come with their paid plans.

23. WordPress Distraction Free Writing

This helpful tool is baked right into the WordPress editor. To access the Distraction-Free editor, click on the four-way arrow icon in the top right corner of any WordPress post you’re writing.

distraction-free editor wordpress

24. Desk

Download the Desk app (currently Mac only) to write straight from your desktop in a clear and uncluttered editor (with markdown support), then connect directly to WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Facebook, and a host of other online publishing sites.

desk

For additional desktop publishing tools, check out Zenwriter (Windows) and Ulysses App (for Mac).

Tools to create beautiful blog visuals

We previously covered a big list of 23 tools and resources for creating amazing visual content, many of which appear below. For the complete list of image creation tools, check out our related post.

25. Death to the Stock Photo

Every month, receive an email with links to a new collection of free, high-res lifestyle photos. The site offers a premium subscription as well to be able to access and search its full archive.

brick and mortar

26. PhotoPin

One of the 53+ places we scour to find free images, PhotoPin lets you search millions of Creative Commons photos from Flickr.

27. Skitch

Grab screenshots and annotate with notes, arrows, and icons. Skitch connects directly to your Evernote account so you can save all the screengrabs you take.

28. Meme Generator

Sometimes a simple meme says more than any other image could. Meme Generator lets you create a meme from scratch or use an existing meme character to add your own saying.

I-Have-No-Idea-What-Im-Doing-1

29. Canva

Probably our most-used image tool at Buffer, Canva makes image creation super easy (especially for non-designers) with their premade templates, custom image sizes for every social media channel, drag-and-drop interface, cool fonts, and more. Most every original image you see shared from our social accounts was made in Canva.

Other great options include PicMonkey and BeFunky.

30. Gimp

Photoshop is the king of image software. Gimp is like a free version of Photoshop. Most all major features are there, and amateur designers can get all sorts of things done with layers, masks, photo effects, and more.

31. Share as Image

Turn text from any webpage into a shareable image with the Share as Image browser extension and bookmarklet. The Pro plan ($8/month) even lets you add custom branding to the image and choose from a huge number of background photos and fonts.

Tools to distribute your content far and wide

We wrote about the topic of content distribution tools in more depth in a separate blog post as well. Click through that post for even more ideas for tools and resources to try when promoting your content.

32. Buffer

Once your blogpost is written and published, you can set up an easy sharing schedule with Buffer. Schedule your new article to go to your social channels multiple times with different headlines or images attached to each update.

buffer

33. EMV Headline Analyzer

Emotional Marketing Value checks for emotional words in your headline, and the analyzer tool returns a score of EMV words compared to total words in the headline.

34. Click to Tweet

Built by the team at CoSchedule (which also makes a helpful WordPress calendar and scheduler), this WordPress plugin makes it simple to highlight snippets of your blogpost for readers to easily share on Twitter. For sites not running WordPress, consider a tool like clicktotweet.

35. Filament

In a single WordPress plugin, Filament contains a group of useful features including Flare, a social share button plugin that makes it easy for others to share your blogpost on Twitter, Facebook, Buffer, and more—even spots like Hacker News and Reddit. Other Filament apps include: MailChimp subscribe form, Google Analytics tracking, all-in-one profiles, code management, and share highlighter.

filament

36. Digg Digg

Digg Digg was built by our Buffer engineers a couple years back, and it’s been a staple on the Buffer blog ever since. What we’ve found most helpful with Digg Digg integration is the flexibility of where you can place the share buttons: floating to the left or right of the article (see our Open blog), pinned to the top or bottom of a blog post (see this Buffer Social blog), or manually wherever you wish inside your theme.

There’s a great list of social sharing plugins reviewed here, if you’d like more options.

37. Google Webmaster Tools

Signing up for webmaster tools can reveal a lot of SEO opportunities for your blogposts. For instance, see where you rank in search engine results for certain keywords, then build links to your most popular keyword posts to increase the rankings even more.

38. MailChimp

MailChimp is one of the biggest and best (and free) ways to send email to your list of contacts. You can set up automated campaigns that deliver each new post that you write, or you can create campaigns from scratch. MailChimp offers free accounts for those with fewer than 2,000 contacts in their list.

39. Headlines

Run A/B tests of your headlines with this WordPress plugin from KingSumo. If the cost is a bit steep ($99 lifetime charge), you can try out the other Sumo plugin, SumoMe, which offers some handy tools for growing an email list, analyzing your blogposts, and sharing content to social media.

The blogging tools we use at Buffer

I’ve had the privilege of trying out many of these tools while writing online. At Buffer, we’ve hone our blogging process into a pretty lean groove. These are the tools that I currently use to take posts from idea to publish.

  • BuzzSumo, Quick Sprout, Feedly, and email newsletters to come up with ideas for blogposts
  • Trello to collect ideas and plan blogposts for the week ahead
  • Yoast SEO plugin for optimizing blogposts
  • The WordPress Distraction-Free editor for writing
  • Canva and Death to the Stock Photo for creating images
  • Buffer, Digg Digg, and MailChimp for sharing the blogpost to social media and email lists

Content crafter at Buffer. You can find me online, tweeting about my writing process, or at home, second-guessing football coaches. Live simply, give generously, beat cancer.

  • https://twitter.com/bldchris Christin Kardos

    Another terrific roundup, Kevan! Thanks. My only complaint is that you + Buffer are making me horribly predictable. Whenever I’m asked for good blogs to read or if there’s a list of resources for [any marketing or blogging topic] I say, “Check out Buffer’s blog post on __________.” 🙂

    I use quite a few of these tools. My latest obsession is BuzzSumo.

    I was glad to see SumoMe mentioned here because though it may not be for everyone, it’s a great starting point for folks who don’t have the time or knowledge to set up more complex options. Everything works exactly as promised and it’s free.

    I’m looking at Digg Digg as a possible sharing plugin for a site redesign but since you shared Filament as an option I’ll look at that one as well.

    H/T to Canva, Death to the Stock Photo, Trello and OF COURSE, Buffer.

  • http://bebrainfit.com Deane Alban

    I just tried WP Distraction Free Editor. That looks SO much better. Clearing up that screen is like feng shui for your mind. What a great tip!

    • http://lorrainemariereguly.wordpress.com/ Lorraine Marie Reguly

      I did, too! LOVED it as well. 🙂

    • http://kylemjones.com/ Kyle Jones

      I totally agree! The WP Distraction Free Editor is, as you said, SO much better.

  • Movie Munce

    I’ve been using Canva since you recommended it in a previous post. I cannot thank you enough! I no longer pay a graphic designer per image. The images I’ve created on Canva by myself have received extremely positive feedback. I would consider Canva a competitive edge at this point, so maybe stop recommending it! 🙂

  • http://www.laundrylinedivine.com Suzi Banks Baum

    Great list Kevan. Thank you. I am a big fan of Disqus for threading my reader comments. It gives me a view of all comments and allows me to post images and links. I see you use it here too. I am a fervent promoter of WordPress and their recent update offered great updates, including the one you mention here. xo S

  • Davidsherry36

    Hey Kevin,

    Thanks as always for giving us a shout 🙂 !

  • http://ipankajsharma.com iPankajS

    Yet another wonderful and highly useful post from Legendary @kevanlee:disqus.
    I loved the idea of Google doc. Most of the time I use Google Doc to curate content and edit it on-the-go. I don’t get much time to write due to busy day schedule. So I follow a ritual of a-week-of-writing. Each day has something different to do that contribute to the post on my blog and elsewhere.

    Thanks Kevan, once again for such a nice post. Cheers, Pankaj Sharma, bit.ly/PRO5001

  • Rachael Hite

    Check out http://www.hemingwayapp.com It has been pretty helpful! Especially with editing down long pieces.

  • Marketing Bees

    Great list of tools Kevan! I use some of them already but there are still some other tools that needs to be explored! Thanks for sharing!

  • Lana

    Love this post! What tool do you use to do your screen shot GIFs, Kevan? And under the header Tools to create beautiful blog visuals, I love to use http://www.tryspruce.com/ to grab my free images and add text. They’re made just for Twitter but I also use these images in all our wordpress blog posts.

    • Lisa Byrnes Whiting

      Lana, I think you’ll find answer in this previous blog post from Kevan. Hope it is what you are looking for https://blog.bufferapp.com/tools-create-images-for-social-media

      • https://goodbits.io/ Lana Topham

        Ahh, appreciate that. We use Cloudapp too but find the GIF is too big to throw on a blog post, especially if the reader is reading the article on their mobile device. I was hoping Kevan used something different so I could try that.

  • http://www.gathercontent.com/ James Deer

    Great list Kevan, you forgot to add GatherContent under Tools! 🙂

  • http://www.markevans.ca/ Mark Evans

    I’m a huge fan of Photo Pin. You should look at adding Atomic Reach (atomicreach.com) to your list of writing tools. It uses an algorithm to score content based on grammar, spelling, paragraph density, etc. It changes and improves how you write.

  • Lisa Byrnes Whiting

    Yet again Kevan a great blog post with incredible list of very useful tools. Every time you post one of these lists, I find something new to add to my toolbox. Not only that but the thread of comments with additional suggestions is also very helpful. Your information is so helpful in my day to day that you even have your very own notebook in my Evernote that I reference daily. Thank you for the detail you give. Much appreciated.

    Hemingway seems like a very interesting tool as does BuzzSumo as I have seen it mentioned a lot more as of late. With the title makers, my writing may have gotten significantly easier.

  • Guest

    Great post, thanks for sharing! Hemingway and Gimp look like great tools that I must try. What about finding inspiration?

    @kevanlee you must never sleep. Another amazing and helpful list! We have a new App called iPositioning to help turn social media into streams social stories. iPositioning is now fully integrated with Buffer so we can design, publish, and score each social story and story component. It is a cloud App so it provides real-time collaboration so marketing teams can easily work together. We do offer free trials at http://www.ipositioning.com. Love to see you guys take a yes drive.

  • http://littlewebgiants.com/ Paul Zubrinich

    Wow Kevan! This is a brilliant resource. I keep coming back to it. A lot of these tools were merely on my “to do” list, but you’ve given me a kick up the backside to just dive in and start using them. 🙂 How did I live all this time without Quora?!

    • http://blog.bufferapp.com Kevan

      Hi Paul! I lived for a long time without Quora, too! It’s been super useful now. Hope you’re enjoying it!

    @Kevanlee you are so prolific! Love the list and will give some of the tools a try with your endorsement. May I humbly add Storify as another tool, I love how you can import tweets and posts right into your blog with it and that Sir Richard Branson uses it.

  • Samuel Earle

    Absolutely awesome list, a few new gems as always.

    You’re missing one in my opinion – Draft (draftin.com) is one of the best tools I’ve used for blog writing/editing (mainly because I have multiple output destinations, not just one WordPress site).

    What are your thoughts?

  • http://buzzalot.com/ Buzzalot

    Thanks for the post, Kevan! We are big fan of Canva because our graphic designer is one busy woman and adding images to blog or social media posts often ends up getting bumped if we are tight for time. We also think that Egg Timer could be great for social media managers. We need carefully watch the time we spend scanning the internet for content so that we don’t get lost. 🙂

  • http://timbader.weebly.com Tim Bader

    Thank you for this list of blogging tools and for not just reproducing what I’ve read again and again, elsewhere. For once, I had only heard of a few of these and I can see I’m going to have to do some research now!

  • http://twitter.com/ramin Ramin

    Great resource! Found some new tools I’ll try out next 🙂

    One thing I like using is GingkoApp.com – very helpful when it comes to organizing/structuring a blog post. It allows you to drag and drop different paragraphs of your post around, and has a nested hierarchy which comes in handy.

    I have to say that buzzsumo is by far my most favorite tool for finding great content ideas. I use this tool to find topics for my clients to write about. Just last week one of my clents had 411 views in a single day of his most recent post written about a hot topic found using buzzsumo.

    Awesome post, so so useful! My favourites are Canvas & Quick Sprout. My only criticism is that when you click on the different hyperlinks it doesn’t load in a separate window so I kept getting taken away from this blog and then having to find it again. Great work though.

    Hi
    I just started my first blog, hope it will rock.
    But in only 10 years. 🙂
    Reason is simple that I m not generating content daily.
    But I will try my best.
    Your blog is so informative, I use my all spare time to read old posts of your blog.
    You can check my little (child) blog to give me suggestions.
    I will wait for your feedback.

    I’m only a beginner blogger and I’m still searching for new tools that make it easier for me to write and share new content. I’ve discovered already one proven way. I never imagined how important it can be to listen in social media. Both customers, competitors and the overall market. It is important to monitor network and listen carefully. There are many tools that offer this type of service. My absolute favorite is either the company you work for. But I didn’t decide to accept their offer if I did not think that they are the best tool. Today I know that and I would recommend them to anyone who can also benefit from it. Speaking about Brand24 (http://brand24.net) – beutiful, simple and easy to use social media monitoring tool. Strongly reccommend it. If you have tested it – please, share with me your oppinion 🙂
