Blogging tends to happen at home most of the time, however traveling and working from other places such as coffee shops means sometimes having to blog on the go. I personally love blogging on the go and I have used a few tools to help me out with it to make it a bit more streamlined. These are in my opinion the best tools to blog on the go.
Best Tools To Blog On The Go
iPad: Whenever I leave my house I usually take my iPad. Sometimes I use it to read at the gym on the bike. Other times I am waiting at the Dr for an hour or so and I use it to check and send emails, read, work on blog posts etc. If you have a tablet this is so much easier than lugging a laptop around all the time. Plus they stay charged so much longer.
Best Apps: On My iPad I use WordPress, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. I love being able to easily open up WordPress from my iPad and work on a blog post or start a new one when the opportunity arises. I also think that Pinterest on iPads is so much easier! I use several different note apps to write posts when I don’t want to mess with WordPress and just save them.
Planner: I keep my editorial calendar digital but having my planner to make sure that I am staying on track with non blog post blogging commitments is great. So many events, dinners, and networking events come up and my planner keeps me sane.
All Things Google: I use Google for everything. Gmail is where my blog and personal emails are, I use Google Drive for my editorial calendar, copies of all my blog photos, as well as all contracts, drafts, etc. If I ever need anything it’s in Google Drive and there are AMAZING apps for every Google service. I use them all day everyday. I also use Google Sheets to keep track of blog finances and sponsored posts.
These to me are the best tools to blog on the go! Would love to know what your favorites are.

I love using Google to blog on the go, but the worse thing is that I need the internet for it (or do you? I’ve heard that it works offline). I wish I had an iPad to make things a bit easier too… at the moment I just use my iPhone 6.

I love using my WordPress app on my phone to upload my photos to the post! It makes it so much more convenient than uploading it to my computer first or sending it through e-mail!
I couldn’t live without my notes app! So many of my best ideas come to me when I’m on-the-go. The Facebook and Twitter apps are lifesavers, too.
Yes! I love using my iPad for getting through comments and everything else. Loved the apps you mentioned as well!
This is so helpful for a dedicated blogger on the road! These will actually help me to keep up. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve been nannying this week to help out a friend so I am definitely about blogging tools on the go. Every morning I pack my mac book air, my planner and of course my phone with all my apps!
The iPad is so great on the go and you have all the apps on there!! I usually put important blogging items on my phone calendar , but still take my regular planner just in case!
I far prefer using Pinterest on my phone rather than on my computer! And YES to Google everything!
This makes me want to give my iPad another chance. To be honest I haven’t touched that thing in months. I always feel like I can only do blog work on my laptop, but it would be so much more convenient to be able to use more portable devices too!
Great info Neely. I’m pinning this to share with others.
I’m downloading the WordPress app right now. I use the Note app and love that I can access everything that I have in Google on my phone or iPad! 🙂
My mobile chargers are my go to tools for blogging on the go. My phone always seems to run out so I need to have extra back up power
Great suggestions and I totally agree! All the social media apps are incredibly easy to use, and Google is a life saver.
Amen to the iPad! I brought mine with me to Europe a couple years ago and it was perfect for documenting everything!
I always keep some type of tablet on hand to write down new blogging ideas. Having apps on your tablet or phone is def a great way to get things accomplished when you are on the go. As far as a planner goes, it is a must for me. I love having an editorial calendar online but I have to have a paper planner as well.
Google is 100% my jam, I love it!
I don’t have an iPad, but I use most of these on my phone. I love using Later for my Instagram since I get reminders to post.
I use many of the same tools. Definitely the Google Drive for drafts, photos, and such. That way I can access from my computer, laptop, or even my phone if I need to!
Yes to all four of these! I recently picked up an iPad Pro and need to get lots of time savings work apps added!
I used to blog on my ipad but its older so I use my laptop. These are some great tips. I use my notes when I don’t have wifi
I don’t know why I haven’t advantage of Google Drive more! There’s no reason not to!
I definitely use all of these! I also recently downloaded the bloglovin’ app which is making keeping up with the community while I commute a breeze!
I don’t know where I would be without google drive.

I love Google docs. Cause then your work is on all your devices and you can edit it so easily!
Great post! I need to download the WordPress app. I never blog on the go but I may need to!!
Google has everything of mine also! I’d probably be lost without it haha.
All of these are great tools ! Ipads, google, and WordPress are all so necessary to blogging.
I love my iPad! I take it with me every where and I totally agree with you about the Pinterest app for iPad!
I take my planner everywhere with me!
So many essential tools here! Gotta love blogging on the go.
Great tips – thanks for sharing!!! I’m always trying to get that blogging in where ever I can find time 😉
Great list of blogging tools. If I happen to leave home without my iPad, my iPhone would do, because I have it loaded with apps I use for blogging.
GREAT resource list for blogging. Thank you!

I really need to start taking advantage of everything google has to offer! Especially when I’m paying for gsuit every month!
Truth! being able to access WP on my phone is SO helpful!! For the last 2-3 weeks i had a weird error in my posts where 1 paragraph would duplicate. People would always tell me while I was out. Being able to edit so easily was a huge relief.
Ohhh I love this list!! So helpful!!
I am always on the go. Being able to blog on the go saves me from getting nothing done. These are all great tools.
I love love love Google. It is seriously the best for everything, and makes organization SO much easier!
Do you ever write posts on your iPad? It’s great for reading and pinning, but not so great for typing.
Google is the best. I have so many google accounts!
I use Google for everything, too–and my Notes app! It helps me whenever I have inspiration but no pen (which is quite often, actually) 🙂 thanks so much for sharing and hope you have a great weekend, my sweet! XOXO
I need to install the WordPress app. I can see the convenience of it. I had the Pinterest app on my phone, but had to remove it due to shortage of space on phone.
Google is seriously a life saver. I cannot imagine blogging without Google.
