  1. So far I’ve only heard, and am using, Google Alert and Grammarly (Plus) – according to the frequent Grammarly mails I’m writing more than 99% of all users 😀
    What are your stats? similar? 🙂


      1. Hello Mahmudul Hasan,
        The information you provided here is very informative and helpful for new bloggers who want to shine on this blogging paradise. I have a question in mind. Why do you change your domain. If I’m not wrong, you are the owner of Why didn’t you renew your previous domain and start a new journey with a new domain?

  2. I use Grammarly, Canva and Unsplash. I have to check out the others too. I have heard really nice things about Tailwind and MailChimp.

  3. The coschedule headline analyzer is my fave! I’ve become quite the pro at coming up with balanced high ranking headlines.

  4. Thanks for those great tools, some I already knew, but MixKit and QuestionDB were new to me and I’m looking forward to investigating them further.

    Canva is great, but I also use Fotor. There’s a free option (plastered with ads), but the upgraded version (ad-free) is a very low price.
