Blogging is fun. It can also be a great way to earn a living. But, to do so, you will have to invest quite a bit of your time into learning new skills, doing your research, and becoming a decent writer.

It is also a good idea to invest some money in buying a few tools. Doing so will enable you to work smarter and produce better, more engaging content. Here are a few for you to consider. 


Tools Every Blogger Should Consider Investing In 


Use a decent plagiarism checker

Nobody wants to be partway through one of your articles only to end up feeling that they have already read it somewhere else. You want to be original, so it makes sense to check for any copied text before you hit the publish button.

Everyone researches their blog posts differently. 

But, one method that a lot of people use can make it surprisingly easy for you to inadvertently publish a piece that contains sections of text that has been published elsewhere.

If you are in the habit of going online, reading studies, and copying and pasting points that are relevant to your readers into a separate document, then crafting it into your article you can easily make a mistake.

It is possible to inadvertently forget to rewrite a section or leave something in that you meant to remove. So, it is good practice to run what you are planning to publish through a plagiarism checker.

Doing so will also enable you to pick up self-plagiarism and to prevent you from creating duplicate content on your website. Something that can have an extremely negative impact on your ability to rank well.

Text analysis tools

You need to remove any spelling and grammar errors. Usually, you can do this simply by using the one that is built into your word processor.

It is also possible to put what you write through a text analysis tool like Hemmingway or invest in the pro version of Grammarly. 

When you do, you will be provided with alternative ways to phrase things, which can help you to write content that flows better.

A way to create interesting images

Bloggers that include plenty of images in their articles tend to do better than those that don't. Being faced with a solid block of text puts a lot of people off. So, it is always worth breaking up what you have written using photos, memes, and infographics.

If you can create these yourself, it is worth doing so. It will save you a lot of money and ensure that you get exactly what you need. 

Canva is a brilliant tool, that enables you to create all kinds of visual aids to embed into your content. Initially, you can use the free version. 

But, once you start earning some money from your blog it is a good idea to consider paying for the pro version.
