Hey! I'm looking to see what everyone else's stack is!

- What software do you use? (google docs, notion, etc..)
- Where do you publish your blog posts? (WP, medium, etc..)

    I write my blog posts directly on the platform it will be published on.

    If for some reason you cannot do that, use any HTML WYSIWYG editor, write it there, save the HTML and paste the HTML into the platform where it will be published.

    I use Wordpress editor directly, with classic editor plugin. I don't like the new Gutenberg editor. I also use Grammarly to check for errors.

    Word or directly into the blog post. Why do you need software?

    I often use Open Office before adding to a site. I check for spelling, do a word count and sometimes the thesaurus. Helps me with my Rankmath SEO score. Have occasionally used Google Docs with a few plugin add-ons.

    The only problem with using something like Word is that those programs automatically add formatting to the text. You can see this if you view the HTML after pasting from Word into your website. This overrides the existing CSS and can lead to inconsistent page formatting.

      Agreed. If you have to paste in, it's better to do it via notepad or similar program, and then use the blogging platform's built-in editor.

    Hey,

    When I first started out, I used to use google docs to write up a draft of the article because I used to type on the trains and buses so I needed something offline. Then I would copy and place it into the wordpress editor, and edit and format my articles.

    But alot of the times when I was at home I would just write my blog posts directly into wordpress editors itself. You get to save alot of time on editing and formating the article.

  • I write my blog post on MS Word (2019). It gives quite a user-friendly interface. And, I publish my blog on WordPress.

    I highly suggest writing posts using markdown. I switched to writing nearly everything I can in markdown because it allows me to focus strictly on the content without having to worry about HTML markup or styling. The beauty with markdown is you can easily output it to html, pdf, word, whatever you want!

    Well, I do all of my writing through the Wealthy Affiliate SiteContent tool, as this tool helps check for plagiarism at the point of hitting the Publish button and keeps overall stats regarding the content you published using the tool. The affiliate marketing community uses managed WordPress hosting packages worth more than the third-tier $250 monthly hosting plans. Thanks for asking!
