When you think of websites related to blogging, what pops into your head? My first thoughts are all the obvious social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+ for me), blogging specific sites such as Bloglovin and of course, a million and one blogs.
I thought today I would share with you three websites that don't immediately spring to mind, but are still invaluable to me as a blogger.
1. Free Images
As the name implies, this site is home to free stock photos. I use this site a lot, if I haven't taken a photo to use on a post. There are thousands to choose from, and I have yet to search for something and have nothing come up.
2. Pic Monkey
I love Pic Monkey! I use it to design images, add text to images and to re-size photos. It is free (there is a Royale option that you can pay for, although I have never needed anything that isn't included in the free bit), and really easy to use.
3. Tweet Deck
Tweet Deck is fantastic. I mostly use it to schedule tweets - it's free to use, there doesn't seem to be a limit to how many tweets you can schedule, and there is no lengthy sign up process, you simply login using your Twitter details. I also use this for Twitter chats. If the chat is moving too fast, you can have a column dedicated to it, plus your notifications, and any other things you don't want to miss displayed at once.
I use other sites too, but these are the three I open religiously nearly every time I come on my blog!
