Handy Page Of Blogging Links
This is a post that I’ve had saved into my drafts for a while and every now and then I’ve added to it. Over the few months I’ve been blogging I’ve accumulated a handy collection of helpful links for blogging and thought I’d share them instead of just hoarding them for myself haha. Sharing is caring! (Oh my God cringe.)
New Old Stock : This site has hundreds of copyright free images collected from places such as public archives.
Pexels : This is the site I use most often when I want to use copyright free, high quality images in my posts.
Picjumbo : I use this site less than the previous two but it is similar to Pexels and has hundreds of copyright free images.
Unsplash : This site has some of the best quality photos and has many unique photos submitted by people which are free for you to use however you wish.
PicMonkey : This is the site I use most often for creating the feature images for my posts (such as the one for this post.) There are lots of editing options/ text fonts/ overlays/ themes and effects.
BeFunky : Similar to the site above but with a slightly different selection of editing choices.
Photoshop Editor : For simple touchups I use the Photoshop Editor.
Finding Other Bloggers
Tags : The first and main way I find bloggers, blogs and posts is through exploring the WordPress tags (which I’m sure those with a WordPress blog will have done.)
#lbloggers : The next most common way I find bloggers is through Twitter hashtags. The hashtags you search/ use depend really on what blog you have/ what blogs you’re trying to find. The one I search most often are #lbloggers (lifestyle bloggers) and #bbloggers (beauty bloggers.)
Bloglovin’ : I’ve gotten really into finding blogs on Bloglovin’, it’s really easy to use and well organised, and an easy way to explore blogs who use a different blogging platform to you.
Promoting your blog
#lbloggers : Again, using Twitter hashtags like #lbloggers or #bbloggers when tweeting links to your blogposts helps them be seen by more bloggers.
@ Twitter RT : Mentioning accounts who retweet bloggers to their thousands of followers all looking for blogs is a popular way of sharing your posts. Some popular ones I’ve used before are: FemaleBloggerRT, BBlogRT, Blogging Gals, and UK Blogger RT.
Bloglovin’ : I think the majority of people with blogs already use Bloglovin’. It took me a while to start using the site properly but it’s one of the best ways to connect with other bloggers, especially those who use different platforms to you.
