When I started writing, I didn’t use any tools. All I had were my laptop, notes, and head. I thought that was all you need to publish something great, which is true. That is all you need. But the time and work you invest into one post isn’t enough to become an influential writer — it actually takes many exceptional posts to build a fan base who can’t wait to read your next piece. And the best way to pump more “wow” into your post is to use the right blogging tools.
