InstantWP is an awesome tool that you’ll definitely find interesting.
Thank you for the comment and share, i really do appreciate it.

Yes indeed, these surely are powerful tools that bloggers should use 🙂
It does take a while to get to know about them, especially if you are a new blogger. Reminds me of the time when I started blogging and had no idea because there are so many options around, making it tough to choose. I’m glad your post would help many decide to pick the right choice. Haven’t heard of Firebug from this list, so off to check that one out now.

InstantWP is a nice tool… you will enjoy using it…
A very awesome collection of tools Baba,
The truth is that any serious blogger cannot afford to stay without these tools. You can actually do without them but it will always take like forever to complete some tasks manually than it would have taken while using the right tools.
I already have most of them except for few that i will check out right away like the Grammar Check.
Thanks for sharing.
You are right about that Theodore,
Blogging tools help make your process quicker than it should…
Thanks for the comment and do have a great week ahead… 😉
Out of all the tools, brokenlink checker has always been my most favourite tool for blogging. We need to check our blog regularly for broken links.
I do use other mentioned blogging tools and I must say all mentioned tools are worth the mention.
Have a faithfully week bro.
Good to know that you find one of the tools very useful… 🙂
All the tools help to speed up your blogging process and achieving a good result in blogging.
Awesome post I must concur.
When I ran a conventional blog, I used almost all the tools you mentioned here except a few.
In addition, other tools that were indispensable then were the Blogsy App for iPad and a powerbank to keep both my lappy and iPad when PHCN did what they know how to do best 🙂
Today, however, the story is different…I can dispense of almost any of these tools.
However, my take is that, the exact number/type of tools one needs to make an impact online are largely determined by the type of blog he/she runs and more importantly, how she/he views blogging progress.
Don’t you agree?
You’re right about that, Akaahan,
the type of tools you use determine the kind of blog you run. But there are some tools every blogger needs and should use.
Like; keywords can get you traffic as long as you can use it well. And to get the right keyword, you need a tool to make that possible.
Every blogger needs to clean their blogger once a week. You need a tool to help you take care of your broken links…
Using tools to better your blog is necessary and very much advisable.
Hope this comment will find you well.. i am visiting your blog for the first time through one of your comment you have done on Aha-now blog. The above post is very well written. thank you so much for sharing such great info with us. count me in, in your regular visitors from now and onward as i love to connect with new bloggers.
Good to see you here.
Hope you’ll visit more often.
Have a blessed week ahead…
Tracking your site’s performance and your own reputation is a wise thing to do. You want to see how your audience is responding so you can take necessary measures to improve the connection, increase traffic and conversions.
Using these tools are the way to go. The only tools that I use that you mentioned are Google Analytics and Broken Link Checker. I’m constantly using these tools and they have been a great help with indicating what needs to be done.
One tool that looks interesting that I’ve never heard of is Google Search Console. I do like to see where my blog stands when it comes to google search traffic and this tool sounds like it’ll do just the traffic.
Thanks for sharing Babanature! Have a great day!
Those tools are also my favourite because of the in-dept analytic of our site.
You should try the Google Search Console and see the miracle it will perform 😉
Thanks for the comment and do have a wonderful week ahead
Great post and great list of plug-ins. One of my favorite and must have is Akismet to block spam.
Akismet is a good plugin that fight spam comments…
The above tools will help you in your blogging blogging career.
Hello babanature, I have been trying to get approval from adsense but it’s very difficult, though I’ve passed the first stage cos I now have local ads on my website,but they are telling me insufficient texts, don’t know.what to do again o, is it bcos of the copied articles or what,pls help me out
Insufficient Text means your blog post doesn’t have enough words in it. Try making your blog post have more words… that will definitely help you get approval.
Babanature, awesome post! As for me, Google Webmaster Tool is must-have tool for every blogger, cuz it has near 67% market share of all search engines. So if you want to improve visibility of your blog posts on the web, you must adjust your website and make it cool for Google.
I liked your points about guest posting. Yes, it’s true, that sometimes guest authors could be not fully honest with you about your writing (and contribute articles that consist plagiarism). Small SEO Tools is a not bad freebie, if not take into account its ads everywhere. But when you have to work with a great amount of big guest posts, it’s reasonable try to use some premium tools, for example Unplag. This anti plagiarism tool checks against the Internet in real time, so it’s easy to detect unfair guest bloggers with it.
Yes, every blogger should and must have the Google Webmaster tool for a better placement of ones website/blog.
I haven’t tried Unplag before but with what you just said, it might be an awesome tool as well.
Thanks for your dropping your thought on this, it’s truly appreciated.
Have an awesome week ahead…
