Many people think that blogging is easy, and it’s just about writing articles. Blogging has never been an easy task, and If you are a blogger, then you might know this very well.
Blogging takes a lot of effort and time to grow a blog. It would be best if you had the right keyword and then research for your article, and then you write a blog post. Work does not end here; once you publish your post, you need a platform to grab visitors.
There are many tools available on the Internet like SEMrush, ahrefs, but they are too costly, and it’s almost impossible to buy them for a new blogger.
Here I have some Firefox add-ons that can save you a lot of time and effort.
8 most useful free Firefox add-ons for bloggers to make blogging a bit easy.
We all know that writing content is not enough to run a blog. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the most crucial part of it. People spend thousands of Rupees for keyword research, backlinks, and other stuff essential for SEO.
SEOquake is a free Firefox add-on that provides all the SEO related details of any webpage you visit. It shows the internal, external, and backlinks of any page. You can also compare different URLs with the help of this add-on.
The best thing about it is you don’t need to put every link in the search to see the results. You need to install this add-on and then connect your free SEMrush account with it. It’ll show all details on the top of the page—something like this.
Spelling and grammar mistakes are two common mistakes in blogging that we all do while writing an article. WordPress has also had its own proofreader feature. But, we all know that it is not sufficient. And, that’s why many bloggers hire proofreaders for this.
Hiring a proofreader is not a bad idea, but it’s for them who have high incomes. For a new blogger, the best option is Grammarly. It also charges if you buy it. But at starting, I would suggest you go with its free version.
It works as a proofreader and finds a common grammar mistake as well as spelling mistakes with a high accuracy rate.
The screenshot is one of the best features for a blogger, as well as a normal person. We often need to take screenshots for many purposes. But what if I ask you to take a snapshot of the whole page.
Well, no such feature is available in traditional screenshot techniques. But don’t worry, you can do it with the help of Fireshot free Firefox add-on. It helps you take a screenshot in many ways, like capturing visible parts, whole pages, and selective parts.
After that, you also have the option to save shot either as image or pdf. You can save or export your shot with this add-on.

For it, an RSS feed subscription can be the best option because it doesn’t annoy you and also loads faster.
Feedly Subscribe free firefox add-on is my favourite add-on for RSS feed subscription. Its user interface is simple and user friendly, and that’s why I use it.
