Hey hey everyone!!
So I don’t think I’ve mentioned this but about two weeks ago I decided to join a blog tour!! WHOOP WHOOP!!
Now you might be wondering what on earth a blog tour is (don’t worry I was super confused and intrigued at this mystical term too), and essentially another blogger decided to host a super fun way of networking with other bloggers by either doing interviews with them or doing a guest post on their site. That wonderful idea has grown and now here I am participating in this wonderful blog tour!! You might also be wondering why I’m posting on a Friday, since I usually stick to Wednesdays and Saturdays, but because of the blog tour I’m mixing things up so this week you’ll have this post today and I won’t be posting anything tomorrow (things will be back to normal next week though xx).
The ingenious blogger hosting this entire tour is Evin, proud blogger from A Curly Sue’s Ramblings and A Wanderful Life (and Evin also has a design business!!) and instead of doing an interview, I thought it would be fun to get Evin to do a guest post here on Tall Blonde Tales to share some blogging advice, especially considering what a huge success her blogs are! So, let me stop rambling on for no reason and get right to it – here is Evin’s guest post and the topic is:
5 blogging essentials I use, and why you should too!
Hello everyone! Itz Evin here!
Today I’m here to share some essentials that you can use for blogging!
Grammarly is VERY useful and it makes writing a post easier! There’s an autocorrect function on grammarly, so even if you type the wrong spelling, it changes into the correct one! Grammarly also makes your writing precise and it gives you the synonyms for words, so you know when to use them!
A few bloggers I know use Bitmoji and I love seeing them! xD With the Bitmoji chrome extension, you can customize your text on some bitmojis! I love using them And, it’s also more expressive to your readers!
Word can be used even when you’re offline, so it’s very useful!! Sometimes when I don’t have WiFi, I start typing a post on Word, then all I have to do is copy and paste it into WordPress and publish the post
Even if your not very good in graphic designing, Canva is very easy to use! There are millions of template and graphics FOR FREE in Canva! That’s where I design all my featured images, blog buttons and some other graphics. go sign up for Canva, its definitely worth it🤩

Pexels and Unsplash have thousands of copyright free photos that you can use! Most of the pictures I use are from Pexels.com (link to pexels) They are also SUPER high quality.
And there we go! Those are all of the essentials I use for blogging! Do you use any of these?
