BLOG/INSTA: Apps & Tools.

Happy Monday, lovers!

I’m excited to share all the apps & tools I use over on my Instagram and here on my blog.  Like I mentioned in my last post (How to Start a Blog), I am no expert, but it is crazy how much you can learn just by DOING and teaching yourself, so here is everything I use!

*I have paid subscriptions to most of the apps below, but I recommend using the free trial versions first, to see which apps you like the best.

iPhone 8 Plus to take all my photos & videos.
CameraTimer app to take my own photos.
facetune 2 app to edit my photos.
Tezza app to add filters to and/or edit my photos.

Photo Editing Apps

Planoly app or Preview app to plan out my Instagram posts and to “curate” my grid.
8mm app to film vintage/retro videos, mostly for Instagram stories.
Unfold app to create cute collages and photo edits for Instagram stories.

Photo and Video Editing Planning Apps

Video Trim app to edit videos.
CutStory app to automatically cut videos to 15-second increments for Instagram stories.
FilmoraGo app or FLMX app to add filters to videos.

Video Editing Apps

Collage app to make collages.
Canva app to create icons for my Instagram story highlights.
PicMonkey to create banners for my blog, YouTube channel, business Facebook page, etc.
WordPress (obviously) for this blog.

& to give you some perspective, here is a side-by-side of my first OOTD after getting serious about this whole blogging thing back in April, 2018 vs. a recent OOTD (they say that sometimes it’s hard to see how far you yourself have come and they are right!):

I hope you find this helpful!  Put in the time & work hard and I promise you will see & feel the progress.
