Create Blog post Drafts in Evernote
Imagine yourself meeting someone and you got to the location first. Instead of using the waiting time to play your favorite mobile game, why not check the list of your blog posts ideas and start writing them on Evernote. Yes, you can use this application for writing. It has a large area with white space where you can write.
This tool can be your distraction-free writing tool as you simply have to focus on getting your ideas down and worry about other things like formatting, spelling and grammar later.
When the person you waited already arrived, you can close the application and be assured that you can easily work on that post again when you have another free time. This would definitely increase your productivity as a blogger. The next thing you know, when you sit down in front of your computer to blog, you already have several “almost” finished content.
