Productivity Tools To Increase Efficiency
Happy Thursday! We’re in San Diego for some family time and a fun little getaway as a kick-off to summer for Jadyn, make sure to follow along on Snapchat: thriftsnthreads 🙂
Today’s blogging tips is covering something I get asked pretty often, how do I stay organized? Especially when I was working my full-time job before. Well today I’m sharing my top 5 tools that I can’t live without when it comes to blogging and keeping on top of liffffe:
At times, it can get overwhelming when trying to schedule content 5-7 days a week. Not only that, but to promote that content through all of your social media channels. CoSchedule provides me with an easy-to-use calendar and social media scheduling.
Within each blog post, you can also schedule your social media posts.
I find that I am more on top of my blog posts and social media sharing since I started using CoSchedule.
I have always heard of Dropbox, basically an iCloud service, but once you start to really utilize it… it’s a lifesaver!
Being able to access my files across all devices just makes things sooooo much easier. Also the ability to send large files/folders to anyone by sharing a link to the source is my favorite. I definitely use this daily.
I am currently on the $9.99/mo plan, which provides 1 TB worth of space. That is more than enough space.
I’d like to think of Wunderlist as a To-Do list on steroids. I have tried many in the past, even the default one on the iPhone, but Wunderlist provides all the tools I need to get things checked off my list. First thing in the morning (after checking any urgent e-mails) is checking Wunderlist and planning my morning around my top to-dos. Mega obsessed.
– Create separate to-do lists
– Prioritize with hashtags
– Assign to-dos (aka tasks I give my hubby lol)
– Attach files
– Have conversations within each shared list
The basic version is available for free, or the pro version for $4.99/month. Honestly, I have had no need to upgrade to the pro yet.
Anthony and I use Evernote so frequently when we stumble across articles that we want to refer to later. It organizes brainstorming ideas and is a good outlet for future content planning.
Here is a screenshot of the previous blog posts I’ve written where I use Evernote as a brainstorming tool and rough draft platform.
I tend to use Evernote when it comes to content related material.
