3 Content Writing Tools I Use And You Can Too.

I like making my work life easier for me. Who doesn’t? One of the ways I do that is by trying to incorporate a lot of easy and handy tools to complete my work.


I know most professional writers use Grammarly, Yoast and Copyscape tools to bring out their best offering, but here I’m going to talk about some small-time Google Chrome plugins and one Word tool that can make writing easy.


Let’s start!


1. Highlighter


I read a ton of websites, without exaggeration. And it’s not possible for me to remember the exact place where I left off reading when I go to another web page and return.


I installed this Highlighter plugin available in Chrome that merrily highlights web pages (Not all).


It made writing skyscraper content so much easier. All you have to do is colour the main points and compile your work into a presentable new masterpiece. Here’s how to install it.


Step 1: Install the plugin from the link above.


Step 2: Once, it’s installed simply right click any piece of text you want to highlight and select the tool.




Step 3: This is the result.




2. Word Counter Plus


There was this one project I had to work on that involved counting the number of words on a webpage and writing an exact number of fresh words back again. I was sick of copying the paragraph to MS Word, counting the number of words and then writing them back. I decided to get help and found this handy tool called Word Counter. It counts characters, words and is super easy for rewriting website content.



Here’s how to use it.


Step 1: Install the plugin.


Step 2: Select some text and right click.


Step 3: You should see the Word Counter Plus.


Step 4: Select it and you should see your results!




3. Read Aloud/Speak


This one I didn’t know until recently. I wanted someone to read out this chapter I had written, so I could hear it and edit it properly. I Googled my concerns and found this tool Read Aloud in Microsoft 2019.



If you’re using an older version of MS Word go to the dropdown on the right in the screenshot (same as the older versions) and select More Commands -> All Commands and scroll down to Speak. You should be able to hear your word document read aloud to you.


This tool reads in multiple voices and at different paces. So select what suits you and edit faster!


Hey, let me know in the comments below all the tools that you use to make your writing top-notch. And I’ll keep expanding this list whenever I find some
