The internet can be a blackhole. Especially when you’re a blogger or a content marketer. That’s why today I’m sharing my most favorite and essential Chrome plugin extensions for blogging. It’s a never ending search for fresh ideas, content, opinions, articles, visuals and everything in between. To say it can become a time-suck is an understatement. By adding extensions to your browser you’ll be able to quickly pin, tweet, save notes and even figure out what font your favorite website uses. Let’s explore shall we?
Pinterest has come along way since it’s humble beginnings. It’s now a powerful platform for driving sales, traffic and simply discovering you new favorite things.
LOVE this extension! I use Hootsuite to queue up all my tweets for myself and my clients. The Hootlet lets me grab content from ANYWHERE around the inter-webs. With this you can quickly construct posts to schedule and assign which accounts you’d like them to post to. Then go back to reading whatever you want to share.
Buffer is great for lining up content on the quick and also for curating content that’s perfect for your readers. The Buffer extension let’s you do just that.
If you hoard books, magazines and blogs like I do, having an RSS reader is a must. I have used Bloglovin’ for a while, but just began using Feedly as well. Both plugins are an easy way to quickly add new blogs to your reading lists.
This is such a lifesaver when you see a color on a website, logo or image that you love and want to know the hex code of. Simply click on the little dropper, click the color and bam! Perfect color match.
Like color picker? You’ll love Whatfont? Pretty self-explanatory, but if you see a font you love on a website, hover over it and you’ll get the hook up. Of course it doesn’t work on images, just fonts that are actually embedded in the website.
I just got back into the swing of using Evernote for keeping track of all my random ideas, blog posts and saving articles that I want to use at a later date. It’s like a text version of Pinterest for me. The extension lets you clip essentially anything from the page; image, the article, screenshot, etc.
