These days, owning a blog or a website is becoming much more common. People are using these web presences to make money through attracting customers, talking about their life or spreading awareness about what is happening in their chosen field. It has therefore become very important to be able to manage a blog and keep up to date with what’s happening around them in a more convenient way, especially as we all live much more hectic lives on the go. One of the best friends to any blogger should be the Google Play store, where an individual can find all types of useful Android apps that can help them with their own site.

Coming up with a blog that will have hundreds if not thousands of readers will require you to have a draft of all your content, that might include videos, pictures and other types of documents. Instead of saving all that information on a portable drive, because it can get damaged or stolen, or even in your computer, because soon the computer will not have enough space, make use of Google drive. An individual can store a lot of information here securely and access it from any device that he or she has, talk about convenience.
This is a great way to store all your draft blog posts, so that you can work on them whilst on the go.
