6 Apps that Help Me Make Money with This Blog

The assumption with bloggers is that we’re glued to our laptops all day long, pumping out post after post. But that’s not entirely true (not for me anyway).

I’m super anal about NOT being handcuffed to an actual laptop in order to post and publish /make money with this blog. I love the idea of being able to literally work from anywhere (well…anywhere that I can use my data at the very least).

Thanks to the invention of the cell phone (which is actually more of a handheld computer), and high powered ‘apps’, we can work from just about anywhere we damn well please 🙂

That said, this is the list of apps that I use to write, post, design graphics and make money with this blog;



WordPress

First and foremost, the WordPress App. I love this thing! The day I discovered it was like giving birth to one of my children (without the pain). I can be sitting on the beach, and if (or when) something pops into my head that I want to write about, I don’t have to make a note, or jot it down somehow. I can actually do the actual post, featured images and all!

If you don’t already have the WordPress app on your phone, you HAVE to get it. It’s available on the app store 🙂

Picmonkey

This is the kind of pin that I make when I’m using Picmonkey. I love it, and it is available as an app, but I find that with this app, I prefer to use the desktop version as I find it to be less confusing. But you might not find that. Try it and see!

Pinterest

God help me I’m on this thing sometimes ’til 4 in the morning. There’s just no end to the browsing, but I’m often pinning until the wee hours too. A girl’s gotta eat 😉

Tailwind

Yeah yeah. I’m probably not the first person who’s told you about Tailwind. I use it to schedule my pins to Pinterest, and I sometimes schedule pins for a month in advance (gotta say that I always end up pinning manually in between).

Adobe Spark

This app is the Cadillac of handheld graphic design. SUUUUPER easy to use and I use it to make pins like this in no time flat 🙂 I’m positive that you’ll love it too. It’s absolutely FREE, and it’s Abobe!! 🙂

Mailchimp

Yes…Mailchimp is cool on the laptop, but once I’ve sent a newsletter, I don’t always want to be on it to check the stats of that newsletter. The Mailchimp app keeps me on top of what’s going on with my newsletters from my phone 🙂

Mailchimp has a “forever free” plan that’s ideal for new users who want to collect subscribers and send email campaigns while learning about MailChimp’s built-in tools and features. You can stay on the Forever Free Plan as long as you have 2,000 or fewer subscribers across all lists in your account.

  1. Hi, I’m a plus size life and style blogger and have been struggling to tear myself away from my laptop. It seems ridiculous that I never thought to install WordPress on my phone so I can format posts on the fly (I tend to write in Evernote or speech notes if I’m driving and have an IFTTT recipe that imports it into WordPress as a draft). I’ve now installed WordPress so hopefully I can get out and about a bit more thanks to your advice. Thank you!

      Make sure that you have the Jetpack plugin activated, or the app won’t sync with your blog 🙂 Once it does, you won’t be able to put it down!
