Improve blogging with these free writing tools

Free Images

Make your blog posts more appealing by including eye-catching images. If you don’t have much of a budget, use Google to find royalty-free ones (but we advise further copyright verification).

1)   Search on Google images for what you need (let’s say, a happy writer):

2)   Choose advanced search from the gear icon in the upper right:

3)   Scroll down until you see the usage rights scrollbar and then choose “free to use or share, even commercially” or “free to use, share or modify, even commercially.”

4)   In theory, these are free images (no 100% guarantees, though):

Cut the flab

Plenty of free writing tools rate the effectiveness of a piece of writing but I’ve recently found one that I really like at WritersDiet.com. You can copy and paste anywhere from 100 to 1,000 words into a box and then click “Run the test!”

The tool then provides automated feedback on these categories:

  • Overall
  • Verbs
  • Nouns
  • Prepositions
  • Adjectives/adverbs
  • It, this, that, there

Each will be rated as one of these:

  • Lean
  • Fit & trim
  • Needs toning
  • Flabby
  • Heart attack territory

Your goal: to have your text rated as lean or fit & trim. Our post’s text is rated as follows:

  • Overall: lean
  • Verbs: lean
  • Nouns: lean
  • Prepositions: lean
  • Adjectives/adverbs: lean
  • It, this, that, there: fit & trim

 Emotional Marketing Value Headline Analyzer

Although the tool’s title sounds a bit flabby, the Emotional Marketing Value Headline Analyzer is kind of cool. You enter a headline of up to 20 words and then select, from a scrollbar, the intended industry of your audience. You’ll receive a rating, plus whether the type of headline is:

  • Intellectual
  • Empathetic
  • Spiritual

Here are results for our blog post:

  • Rating of 57.14%
  • Most professional copywriters’ headlines will have a rating of 30-40%
  • The most gifted copywriters will have a rating of 50-75%
  • This headline appeals equally to people’s spiritual and intellectual spheres
