12 Free Time Saving Tools for Mom Bloggers
12 Free Time Saving Tools for Mom Bloggers

Whether you are new to blogging, or have established yourself in the blogging world, you may find that the whole ordeal can be time consuming.
And, as mothers, ain’t nobody got time for that.
The following are productivity tools I have come to discover over time that help me save time when it comes to creating content for my blogs.
And the best part? They’re all free! Yay!

1. Trello


Hello, Trello!
This organizational tool is geared toward keeping track of projects.
You can create boards and assign tasks to each of them. For example, you can create a board for each week of the month and assign your daily tasks to them.
Check it out here!

2. Google Drive


I love Google Drive.
(So why don’t I marry it?)
The beauty of it is that you can access your files from multiple devices – plus it offers online software similar to Microsoft Word.
For example, I use Google Docs to work on articles if I’m away from my laptop. I also use Google Sheets to organize my blog posts.
You do need a Google account to access these features – but that’s what makes it possible to access everything through multiple devices

3. Tailwind


Tailwind is a scheduling tool for Pinterest that allows you to add pins to an automated schedule and simply walk away. This tool will pin those pins to the boards you specify.
Tailwind also features “smart scheduling” which schedules your pins at peak times to increase impressions and clicks.
You can also join tribes in which fellow tribe members share each other’s content.

4. Buffer


What Tailwind does for Pinterest, Buffer does for Facebook and Twitter. It allows you to schedule posts, images, links and other social media content onto your accounts throughout the day.
The free version only has a 10 post limit (per account and social media profile), but I find I only need to hop on Buffer twice a week. Scheduling content is super fast and easy.
Social media such as Facebook and Twitter attract more visitors and followers when there is consistent, fresh and relevant content.

5. Tweak Your Biz Blog Title Generator


You may have an amazing idea for a blog article but sometimes coming up with a catchy title can be challenging.
Save yourself some time by using Tweak Your Biz’s Blog Title Generator.
Simply plug in your topic and this generator will provide you title ideas in multiple categories including “how to”, “lists” and “best”.
It even has a category for “sex” – which was very interesting when I tested it using the term “sippy cup”:

  • Can Sex Sell Sippy Cups?
  • Erotic Sippy Cups Uses
  • Gay Men Know The Secret Of Great Sex With Sippy Cups

Relevant? Definitely not. Catchy? You bet!
Check it out here! (The blog title generator, not erotic sippy cups uses!)

6. Squirrly


Squirrly is a WordPress plugin that optimizes your site for SEO (search engine optimization).
It also provides the ability to do keyword research. Just type in your keyword for your post and the results will display related long-tail keywords and indicate the average monthly search volume as well as whether or not the keyword term is easy or difficult to rank in Google searches.
If you’re new to blogging, it may be hard to wrap your head around SEO and keywords. But, once you get into the swing of things, this tool is going to help save you a lot of time.

7. Canva


I used to consider myself a Photo Shop aficionado and often used the program to create site graphics as well as social media graphics and Pinterest pins.
Then I discovered Canva and my life changed. Instead of fannagling with layers and positioning, Canva utilizes a drag-and-drop interface as well as hidden grids that allow you to position and center your elements perfectly.
Canva also provides hundreds and hundreds of ready made templates for all kinds of projects such as Pinterest and Facebook graphics, printables and even business cards.

8. Ommwriter


One of the biggest challenges I have with being productive while running a blog is actually focusing on my writing and avoiding distractions.
Programs such as Ommwriter are designed to eliminate distractions so you can focus on writing.
It provides a focused view and calming audio tracks to help boost your creativity.
Check it out here!

9. Grammarly


Grammarly is primarily a free editing and proofreading tool.
When you are relying on your written word to attract and maintain an audience, you want to make sure your writing comes across as professional.
Even the best of us writers make overlooked mistakes and publish typos on our blogs. Grammarly will help you to polish your grammar, sentence structure and spelling.
Check it out here!

10. Todoist


This task management app helps you create and organize to-do lists.
You can color code your tasks, share your lists and track your progress.
There’s a reason people gravitate toward to-do lists – not only does it help organize what needs to be done but checking off completed tasks is rewarding and satisfying.
Check it out here!

11. LastPass


I can’t tell you how many times all of my passwords saved in my browsers went toodely-pipsky – then I’m spending precious time either trying to remember them or resetting them.
With LastPass, you can securely save all of your passwords in one place.
This is especially important for bloggers, since we use multiple tools to run a blog such as WordPress, Facebook and Pinterest (not to mention all of these amazingly useful productivity tools mentioned in this article).
Check it out here!

12. Scoop.it!


Once you get into using Buffer, you’ll need to find some enriched content to share to your social media followers – since you want to make sure you are sharing more than just your own content.
Scoop.it will help you discover shareable content you can then plug into your Buffer schedule. Type in your interest and Scoop.it will provide relevant articles you can then share on your social media.
Check it out here!
