Today's post is slightly different, but since the rebrand and the relaunch of my YouTube channel and my blog, things have been getting pretty organised around here! I've been trying to figure out the kind of content I want to make, I've been planning videos and blogposts and I've discovered (and been obsessed with) some apps which I now can't see myself without. Here are a few of them.

This is such a obvious one, but the Blogger app is such a blessing! It's so convenient! You can write, edit and publish posts on the go and it's perfect for when you get a spontaneous idea and you're nowhere near your laptop or your computer. Equally, if your blog is hosted on Wordpress, I'd recommend checking out the Wordpress app, which I'm sure works in a similar way.

Some people have mixed opinions about this app, but it has grown on me. I didn't used to use this as much before, but when I started my own written blog in addition to my channel, Bloglovin' helped me discover other bloggers and it made it so much easier to keep up with new posts. It's also really easy to keep up with your own blog and your analytics.
Also, Bloglovin' has recently updated their system to include a new 'Video Blog' feature, which I love, because it links my YouTube videos to my bloglovin' and it means that content is easier for everyone to find as it's in one place.

YouTube Studio
This app is one of my blogging favourites and I wish I had discovered it a lot sooner than I did. It's so good and it's like having the desktop equivalent of YouTube in the palm of your hands. It is so much better than the actual YouTube app for tasks such as replying to comments, and it also allows you to manage your videos, make them public or private, edit your description box and keep up to date with your YouTube analytics and earnings. I'd totally recommend checking this one out if you haven't already, it's a lifesaver!

The Studio+ app is a great one to use to edit general pictures and blog photos when you haven't got your computer with you. It offers a variety of different fonts, frames and graphics which come in really handy if you've taken photos on your phone and you want to spruce them up or label things. It's useful to have, especially if you're blogging on the go, as you can edit your blog photos using Studio+ and import it into a blog post using the Blogger app.

Last but by no means least, I've really been enjoying using Depop recently to buy & sell items! Let's be honest, sometimes we all end up with things that we don't always use or need and as a blogger, I am definitely guilty of hoarding products etc.  Depop is a C2C (Consumer to Consumer) based platform and it is great for selling items quickly and easily and it's equally as good for buying items which would otherwise be a lot more expensive. It's a great way to have a clear out / to declutter (and to make a bit of money) without having the feeling that you're throwing your things away. I've recently listed some things on Depop, so if you'd like to have a look, search 'thesurrealbuzz' on the app :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful. I love reading posts like these myself, so I hope you do too. If you have any questions or would like me to do more posts about blogging or similar topics, just let me know!
