Blogging Tool of the Month | Blogmas Day #4


Hello! I've decided to start another series, it's going to be sort of similar to my AOTM series except blogging related and not just apps. There are some tools that are really handy and save a lot of time whilst blogging and that's what this series is going to be about.

This months tool is Dropbox, an app that I've been using a lot lately. I take all of my blog pictures on my iPod and Dropbox is what I use to transfer the photos onto a computer (lets be realistic, who wants to have to search for the lead every time they need to transfer a picture!) Once you download the app it starts to backup all your photos and, depending on how many you have this can take a while and be a bit of a pain. The app does however run in the background, so you do whatever whilst it's loading! Whenever you want to backup your pictures you just go into the app and it starts uploading them to your Dropbox automatically. You can also access uploaded pictures offline.

Once you set up Dropbox on your computer it's really easy to use and is basically just a folder containing all your pictures. The downside with Dropbox is that you only get 2 GB free, which doesn't sound like a lot. However since I only really use the account for blogging pictures it's sufficient but if you do want more space there is a fee.

So to sum it all up Dropbox stores pictures, allows you to transfer them between devices and is free to a certain extent.

Also I got Pinterest and am currently in the process of adding stuff to it so I'll leave a link below :)

Do you use Dropbox? Or are you on Pinterest? Let me know in the comments!
