7 Free Tools For The Happy Bloggers Christmas List

Posted by in Blogging


The Happy Bloggers Christmas List

There is something about Christmas that just makes you want to share and give freely to the good people around you. Would be nice if it was like that all the time, but reality hits and you get busy and blah blah… right?

But Christmas is when you make that little extra effort, to help out or give back. happy-bloggers

It’s that same reason you have watched the Christmas Story 100 times lol, “it’s ok, so have I”…can you say “Pink Bunny PJ’S”? :)

I’m surrounded by happy bloggers everywhere that are giving back.

ex: My man John at extremejohn.com is having Santa day at his tanning business for all his customers kids. Awesome right?

So since I’m more about giving then receiving on Christmas, I decided to give a few tools away that I use to help manage daily tasks of running my blog and business.

This is my small Thank U for reading my blog and supporting what I’m doing here on Money Dummy :)

Oh yea before we get to the tools…

Last year I shared a post on 12 Days Of Christmas – Blogger Style I let me creative side free haha

Ok back to the Free tools.  These are tools I have paid right for or have access to that I am sharing with you to download and use freely.

Now these are not $200 tools, but they are tools that I still use that work and if they work then why change them up. :)

Here are the Happy Bloggers Christmas Tools List:

.

Max Banner Ads

It will display a single line across the top of your blog. That you can use to advertise a product or service, show your newsletter opt in or any message you want your readers to see.

.

MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer

Click To Download: http://bit.ly/maxping

What It Does:

Every time you launch a new post or update it, WordPress will ping it to directories to let them know to come look at the new content on your blog. Problem is, if you update a post 5 times, WP will ping it 5 times… Not Good.

Ping Optimizer will ping your post ONE time and it will ping it to a larger number of ping services.

.

Social Bot

Click To Download: http://bit.ly/botsocial

Normally $29.95 – Yours Free.

What It Does:

A fast way to bookmark all your blogs pages and posts, video links, articles etc… (Without Doing It Page-By-Page)  Any type of content that you make, you should be bookmarking and this tool helps you do that.

.

GFX Video Writer

.

RSS2Tweet

rss2tweet

Normally $19.95 – Yours Free.

What It Does:

RSS2Tweet sends updates from any RSS feed to any Twitter account. It is a content syndication tool that will run automatically in the background once started.

The idea is to automate tweeting throughout the day to keep messages in front of your followers, and to attract new followers, traffic and sales.

Disclaimer: I would NOT use this type of automation on your main account. But if you have a product or niche account then this will work great. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put “real” time into those accounts too.

.

    Thanks John for the gifts, GFX video especially caught my eye having recently created a video based on the content of my blog and hated the process due to the feeling of constraint of having to keep to the posts content.

    Here’s to a great 2012 and many more great days
