Welcome to the end of my 12 Days of Christmas series!
For the last 12 days, I featured a different category of free blogging tools.
Each day, this blog featured a bite-sized blog post of blogging tools grouped by function for your convenience.
Today, 10 free writing tools are featured.
These tools will help you write your headlines as well as your blog posts.
Bring on Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas: Writing Tools Online Free Hacks.
10 Writing Tools Online Free Options
- Advanced Marketing Institute will analyze the merit of your headline for you.
- Blog Title Generator I recently got a great headline with SEOPressor’s Blog Title Generator. When you arrive, put in your article’s keyword, then tell the Blog Title Generator what kind of headline you need. Your choices are generic, brand, event, industry, location, name, and skill. In addition to suggesting headlines for your article, the tool offers headline writing tips. For this article, I put into the generator “Free Writing Tools.” This is what the tool suggested, “Ten Beautiful Reasons We Can’t Help But Fall In Love With Free Writing Tools.” When I put it into the CoSchedule Headline Analyzer, (See Number 5) I got a low score due to the length of the headline. I shortened the length to 10 Beautiful Reasons You Will Love These Free Options which received a 76 on the CoSchedule Headline Analyzer. Often the headline tools like Blog Title Generator and Portent (See Number 10) inspire headline ideas that I end up using.
- Capitalize My Title I’m a teacher and I still want to make sure my capitalization is spot-on, so I use this tool. Capitalize My Title will capitalize your headlines and subheads for you.
- CoSchedule Headline Analyzer helps me write my headlines. The higher the score, the better the headline. CoSchedule scores your headline based on the following criteria: You need to have words in your headline from all four groups: common, uncommon, emotional, and power words. I only received a score of 76 on the headline for this post since, according to CoSchedule, I don’t have any emotional words in my headline. CoSchedule also lowers your score if your headline is too long. [Read How to Write Headlines Guaranteed to Bring a Wealth of Traffic.]
- Grammarly makes sure the grammar in my writing is error-free. Read this guide to using Grammarly.
- Gutenberg The Gutenberg editor recently replaced the Classic WordPress Editor. Thanks to Gutenberg, WordPress bloggers have more functions available to them than before. For those of you still experiencing growing pains, this WordPress Gutenberg tutorial should help.
- Hemingway True confessions: I haven’t used Hemingway. The reason: I thought it was a paid tool. However, my research seems to indicate the app is free. Hemingway helps you with sentence length and passive voice among other writing flaws.
- HookLine Dynamic Michelle Schaeffer’s tool helps with writing headlines, email subject lines, and even Facebook ads.
- Linkbait Title Generator Controversial headlines cause people to click. If you’re looking for that kind of “link bait” headline, this is the headline writing tool for you. For example, I have a post coming up about SEO Tips. Linkbait suggested, “the most incredible article about SEO Tips you’ll ever read.”
- Portent If I’m stuck, I’ll use Portent to help me with my headline. Fair warning: Portent’s suggestions can border on silly.
