Step by Step Guide: Blogging Using Just The Dell Venue 7


Bloggers everywhere like me exulted when they no longer had to be chained to their desktops and laptops as now we’re able to blog directly from Android mobile devices, like tablets & phones, to capture our day-to-day life and update things as they happen. And I have to agree devices like Dell Venue 7 which is refreshingly bloatware-free have totally made my life easier. With the request of few of my friends in blogosphere and colleagues, I would like to write how blogging has become easier for me unlike before.

Firstly my device Dell Venue 7, which stands out among the abundance of competitively priced midsize and small tablets, due to its stable performance coupled with a small list of super blogging tools (Thanks to the Android Developer community for keeping them free for pocket friendly bloggers)

Blogger



As you know, my blog is built on ‘Blogspot’ platform. I’ve installed the free ‘Blogger’ app from Google Playstore which I felt is much more user friendlier in my Dell Venue 7 than the PC version. You should try it to feel it. All the options (The necessary ones) that you’ve been looking for (In PC) are right at your fingertips when accessed through the app installed on the tab. The super lightweight (0.74 pounds) DV7 tablet makes it easier for me to carry it everywhere in my home and blog wherever and whenever I want to.

PicMonkey



Picmonkey app (Again available for free on Google Playstore) allows me to edit, design and upload photos using online. You can also crop, resize, add effects, filters, overlays, textures and a lot more with this super cool app. The interface is quite user friendly for beginners like me. The circular grooved texture of the Dell Venue 7 on the back feels pleasant on my fingertips making it easier to churn out quick graphics for my blog. If you’re a blogger who needs a mandatory graphic in your blog, be sure to download this app.

Feedly



Feedly is a free android app that aggregates RSS, Social Content and Google Reader. Most of the bloggers love to read a lot, to get inspired and most importantly to avoid writers’ block. A blogger can set up alerts from their favorite websites and get the articles delivered right at their fingertips. For my surprise, this app also pulls in content from sites like Tumblr and YouTube. I love the navigation as it’s quite straight forward and with my Dell Venue 7, this app certainly works like a dream.
