This is basically a list of the tools I use to do my blog and podcast.
Everything I use to make my blog and podcast is free and on the cloud except for the podcasts which I record with the default voice recorder app on a phone and also the free Audacity program.
But don’t get wrapped up in all the technical stuff. Make sure you focus on quality content, not the coolest software on the block.
WordPress.com, for hosting my blog, which I’m happy with, since it’s free, pretty basic, fast, and simple
Draftin is a super clean writing space, and Docs is sort of like Google’s own version of Word for free on the cloud
Hemingway App for editing my writing. This highlights problems and suggests changes.
An old Android cell phone
A Yamaha keyboard, Ibanez nylon-string guitar, and Meinl Percussion cajon (in case you’re interested) to do the mostly all live music!
Workflowy app to outline the podcasts. A great outlining app and site which can also be used for to-do lists
WORKING WITH THE PODCASTS
Cloudconvert to convert file types. It’s easy and works for most file types.
Audacity for general audio editing. Popular free program.
Gmail. Hopefully I don’t have to describe this!
Mailchimp to create and track my newsletter forms. Pretty simple free way to get email subscribers
Google Forms Nice way to do questionnaires.
