10 Apps & Sites I Use (almost) Every Day

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a great Tuesday ❤

I had a few very hard days in every aspect of my well being, but today I can finally rest and do the things I love, like talking to you 😉

As a blogger and a writer, I gathered some great apps that are actually useful. I also found some cool sites to help any fellow writer/blogger do their work better. Some of the apps are more obvious than others but because I use them almost daily they got their spot of honor in my top 10 (my phone camera, calendar, and Gmail are not included as it’s too obvious and because I don’t have a regular camera, I use my phone camera for everything) and I’m also not including WordPress site as it’s too obvious 😉

So let’s start…

Instagram App

I am obsessed with Instagram and I want to use it more for my blogging/writing. I think it’s a wonderful tool and can be utilized well for your business. For me it means, putting more of my own pictures which are a not an easy task for me.

My Instagram

Google Keep App/Site

This is a very overlooked app (or site) but it’s amazing. I use it for my notes daily and even multiple times a day. I have labels for my mom, my writing/work, my blog, home and many more and you can color code the notes, put pictures, links, record voice, draw… But still keeping everything looking simple in the presentation – I love it. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years and I am loving it. It’s like a pocket planner for notes, hehe 😀

Google Keep

Grammarly Site

Okay, this site has taken over my life completely and I use the free option. It helps so much with writing anything, from writing blog posts, comments, and even writing your novel, lol. I use the site, it’s on my chrome and even my windows. Such a simple tool but works well and beyond. I can’t even imagine writing anything online without this site. I wish they had an app as well.

Grammarly

WordPress App

My blog is on WordPress, so I naturally have the app. I don’t use it a lot, mainly with comments and likes, but it’s a useful app to have around if you’re a WordPress blogger.

WordPress Android / WordPress IOS

Pixabay Site

I love taking pictures on my own, but I don’t want to put my already very rare free time on taking pictures, I want to use that time to actually write my book or edit it and connect with you ❤ So I use Pixabay a lot – A lot! I love this site and I think everyone can find gorgeous pictures that will relate to what you like and what’s your blog is about.

Canva Site/App

If you edit your pictures for a blog post this site is for you. I used to use the picmonkey but then they deleted the free option (they have a 7 days free trial) so I switched to Canva and I am so happy I did, it’s amazing. It has great options for every social media, newsletter, and posts, and so much more. Everything is so approachable and easy.

This one is my favorite, though I mostly use the site. I also have the app which is also very nice to use however, I use it to share my edited picture that is already saved on the site and so I don’t need to download right away and just share from the app. I use the site daily as well and it’s one of my most used sites after Instagram and Google Keep 🙂

Canva

Buffer App/Site

This is my favorite scheduling app for my twitter, it’s sad that they give you just so little free scheduling but I’ll take what I can 😉 I use this app and site a lot and I need to use it more, hehe. If you know any good free scheduling tool, let me know 😀

Buffer Site

Twitter App

This one is obvious, I think. I love twitter a lot and I want to use it more for connecting with you and for my writing. I try to use my twitter daily but in most cases, I use it every second day or so, but I do comment and like a lot. This is a very helpful tool for any blogger/writer and I need to really utilize it more.

My Twitter

Dropbox App (and site)

This is pretty obvious as well, I think, well at least for me. I use it so much daily for storing my pictures (mostly) but also notes and all of my huge pile of Ebooks (I have too many books both paper and ebooks… I need help).

Dropbox

Hemingway Editor Site

This is a relatively new site for me but I absolutely love it. If you like to get truly “abused” and see your writing shred apart with beautiful colors of errors this is the site for you 😉 as I edit my novel, after each chapter I put in Grammarly and after that I put in this Hemingway Editor Site, lol (yes I know… and I am… Crazy, hehe) and there I see all the wonderful errors I would never catch by myself, YAY.

So I truly think that this site is an amazing tool for writers and if you like your book to be the best it can be, put your chapter in there and start editing 😀

Hemingway Editor

  • A bonus app is for editing pictures that I use so many times a day, way too much. Is called Snapseed which is a great and easy app to edit your picture very professional looking. I love using this app a lot and it’s free 😉

Snapseed Android / Snapseed IOS

What app (or site) is your favorite?

Good Bye, Coffee n' Notes

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Top Ten Tuesday : Top Ten Favorite Heroines

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in which you make a list of ten to do with a certain topic. This weeks topic is “Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books”. I saw it first at Kath from The Last Reader and I really wanted to do this 🙂

So… Here is my list, hope you like it ❤

Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

I love this character so much, she is so strong and she will only accept true love. Just the way I felt all my life. I always thought that true love is just not possible, but I guess I was wrong, lol.

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

Hermione is a strong character in the life of Harry Potter and her motivation and determination helped Harry in every step he took. She may not be the main character but without her, I don’t think there was a book and I don’t that Harry could go as far as he did without her help.

Buffy Summers from the TV show Buffy.

I love how strong she is on the show, but also so real. She may have powers that make her unique but I like the way she sees life even with all the evil around her.

Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan from the TV show Bones.

She is brilliant and wonderful. I love how she sees life from her point of view, I relate to her too much, lol. She sees life as facts but also, love and friendship and she has no judgment on how people are.

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Katniss is such a real girl that been thrown into the unusual situation. No magical powers just a few abilities, tons of inner strength and a strong will to survive. She fights hard for what is right and very loyal to her friends.

Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas’s.

I have only started to read the first book, not long ago but I already fell in love with her. Celaena is such a strong female protagonists with mad skills. I love her character and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books.

Veronica Mars from the TV show Veronica Mars.

I really love her attitude in the show. No matter how bleak things may come, she finds a way to smile and overcome them. She is strong and determined to find the truth.

Anne Frank.

Don’t think I need to explain this little girl and why she is so strong and amazing.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

Jane may look uncaring but she is full of love and determination to be what she wants. To be free and to build her future the way she wants, no matter how others may see her.

Beatrice Prior from the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.

Beatrice wants to change her fate and is willing to do a lot to achieve it and she is such an inspiration for that. She fights hard for what she wants and I loved seeing her grow. She, like other heroines I love so much, is fearlessness and strong and has a good sense of what is really right.

So this is my list, have you read any of these books? What heroines would you choose for this week? Feel free to write in the comments below 🙂

Thank you so much for reading ❤
