WordPress has a plethora of plugins and additional tools to help your blog blossom. Still, perfection has no limits. That is why we’ve selected some of the best resources and tools to make you more productive, your texts more magnetic and your blog insanely successful! 

WePapers 

Even experienced writers need an extra pair of eyes to proofread their texts. It’s great if you have a willing colleague or a designated editor but what if you are on your own and automated tools just don’t cut it? That’s when services like WePapers come in handy. 

This writing service specializes in research paper help for college students, yet they do proofreading, editing, and content writing for blogs and websites as well. They can also help you out when you don’t have enough time to flesh out an article for your blog, you are low on ideas or just don’t have enough competence to tackle a particular topic. Simply outsource the post, set the deadline and you will get your excellent unique content hassle-free. 

Grammarly 

There are quite a lot of decent text editors out there, but Grammarly offers the widest array of tools in its free mode, so it’s increasingly popular. Apart from seeking out the typos, out-of-place words, grammatical errors, omitted commas, and other such basics, it has readability, clarity, and goal-achieving score. 

Readability score assesses the average lengths of words and sentences, clarity score tackles the wordiness and complicated structures, and goal-achieving includes such parameters as the audience, tone of voice, intent, domain, and formality of your text. Pretty versatile if you ask me. The best bit is that you can work either in the app directly or install a free browser extension that seamlessly works with WordPress. You can simply type your post into the WordPress window and get an immediate feedback. 

Yoast SEO 

Search engine optimization is a necessary aspect of blogging, like it or not. For a beginner, who is only dipping his toes into the waters of SEO, Yoast is a perfect tool. It’s simple, free (with a paid Premium option) and user-friendly. Install the plugin and write a post in WordPress as you would before. Now scroll down and look at your Yoast scores (readability, focus keyword, slug, title, etc.) If anything isn’t a happy green color, it needs your attention and isn’t perfect SEO-wise. 

However, this doesn’t mean that your text must check all the boxes. Sometimes you don’t want a keyword in the first paragraph to keep your tone of voice. Sometimes you must have lower than recommended keyword density to sound natural. It’s fine – Yoast is not a rule, it’s just a second opinion. It gives you an insight on how algorithms and bots see your text. You still write for people, but keep those guidelines in mind. 

Google Keyword Planner 

Okay, while we are still on the topic of keywords and SEO, let’s touch on keyword planning. Keyword research is a necessary step in content creation if you plan to make blogging a source of income or become an authority in your niche and build an audience. Of course, you can create great content without any knowledge of SEO, but to make your blog discoverable you must learn the ropes. This will help you to include the words that your potential audience will use while searching for the specific kind of content, thus leading them to you! 

Google Keyword Planner allows you to choose seed keywords and then provides a list of suggested search terms along with their search volume, so you can pick not only the most relevant but also the most popular and promising ones. No more guesswork. 

Canva 

Text is the soul and essence of your blog but to make it appealing and comprehensible for the audience you need to add visual content – we all know that. Yet this content must be meaningful, be an organic part of the text, and add value to it. So breaking up your sheet of text with stock images won’t do the trick. 

Canva, on the other hand, will. This is a platform for creating inorganics, charts, headers, and all kinds of custom images. It has various templates for all possible social media and you absolutely don’t have to be a designer to create unique and engaging images there!
