I know Instagram is a social media platform and in my opinion you don’t need to have Instagram in order to be a successful blogger but that topic is for another post. I use Instagram for inspiration in terms of blog photography, content and simply for motivation. When I see other successful bloggers, it motivates me to do better and I’ve been loving using Instagram for that matter. In addition, I use Instagram to interact & support other bloggers/influencers as well.

Je sais qu’Instagram est une plateforme de médias sociaux et, à mon avis, il n’est pas nécessaire d’avoir Instagram pour être un blogueur prospère, mais ce sujet concerne un autre poste. J’utilise Instagram pour m’inspirer en termes de photographie de blog, de contenu et tout simplement pour la motivation. Quand je vois d’autres blogueurs à succès, cela me motive à faire mieux et j’adore utiliser Instagram pour cette question. De plus, j’utilise Instagram pour interagir et soutenir d’autres blogueurs/influenceurs.

  1. I already have WordPress, Bloglovin and Instagram. But I don’t use bit.ly because it has been blocked in China. If someone visits bit.ly page in China, it will can’t be accessed. WordPress has a short link feature. I also use Grammarly to practice my English grammar.
    I know you post your blog in English and French, I post my blog in English and Chinese Simplified. Sometimes I use translate apps.

    1. Ohh I didn’t know about that! Grammarly is a great tool, I’ve mentioned it on one of my blog posts. Thanks for reading!

  2. Thank you so much. I didn’t even know you could use Pinterest for a blog 🙄 clearly an amateur here!
    I have a question for anyone who can help, my posts do not post in order! They are going by month and then date as opposed to order they are posted. So there is no flow. I am lost.. thanks in advance for anyone’s help!!

    1. You’re welcome! I believe you need to check your home settings under the option customise. There will be an option where you can set your blog posts to appear in a chronological order. Hope that was helpful 😊

  3. I find the WordPress app to be very helpful in uploading photos. I usually use my phone to take and edit pictures and with the app I can easily upload them (for some reason I just find it easier than going to the website). It helped me post more often since a huge delay for me is in uploading the photos for my post :))

  4. I downloaded Unfold last week after realising what app every other influencer was using! I haven’t gotten round to using it though but hopefully I’ll be able to get to it soon.

    I think Instagram is fundamental to every blogger! Very handy and I love interacting with everyone on there. 🙂

    1. You can find tutorials online or in some cases you can find documentations. Let me know if you need any help ☺️

    1. My pleasure, love! That’s actually a good question! I spend (more than) an hour on Instagram to catch up my feed and 5 to 10 minutes on Buffer & Bitly every time I schedule a blog post. I probably use WordPress the most often, I use it for an hour or two on an everyday basis. I only use Unfold when I want to upload Instagram stories and that only takes me a minute or two. I use Bloglovin once in a while ☺️

  5. Thanks for posting this! I really needed to get my blogging life (and actual life) together, haha, so this was really helpful. I’ve taken such a long hiatus and yay, I’m back, and looking through my reader this caught my eye, so thanks again!

  6. Agree with all of your recommendations – Buffer is my favorite for Twitter promotion. For Instagram planning, Planoly is my favorite!! I used to really enjoy Preview, but Plainly has since replaced it for scheduling/planning.

  7. I have to say, I’ve just come across your blog and it is so useful to me. It’s full of great info and tips, and I’ve been on a few of your posts and feel like I’ve already learned so much! Thanks for this! How long have you been blogging for?

    1. Aww thank you so much! I’m so glad to hear that! I’ve been blogging for 4 years but I’ve only been blogging consistently for 2 years x

  8. Ohhhh thanks for sharing these apps. I use WordPress, Bloglovin and Instagram, I’m going to look into the other ones you mention. ❤

  9. When you use all these apps, do you have a centralized place that you keep track of everything? How do you go about that? Are these apps free? Love this article, really awesome stuff to know!
