I’ve been passionate about reading and writing blog posts for a very long time and when it comes to saving links and organising posts that I may find useful in the future, I’ve used many methods.

One of these methods was to simply bookmark the posts, which is ok if you have no more than 10 links, but if you want to build up a library of links, I felt that that approach was too basic.

The second approach I tried was to use Trello, and I liked the fact that it allowed me to make notes on the cards. But I soon got bored by this approach and ended up just using Medium and bookmarks within my browser.

That’s when I discovered Bublup, which turns out to be great for organising and sharing links as well as other things, which we’ll discuss in this article.

For those of you who haven’t discovered this app yet, Bublup is an organisation and project management app that provides you with a new way of storing and organising your things.

The app works great in many case studies, such as travel, university or even for storing your cooking recipes.

But in this article, I will be discussing how I use it for blogging, so without any further ado, here are the ways I use Bublup for blogging…

Saving links to helpful blog posts

The main way in which I use Bublup for blogging is by simply saving links to articles I may find useful in the future.

I tend to save links for personal life, project work as well as blogging. But the truth of the matter is that I save links to anything that I may find useful in the future.

For example, I am currently building a new smart home ecosystem, and I’m saving links to posts and guides I may find useful when it comes to building things.

As a tech blogger, I save links to blog posts that I enjoyed reading and may want to refer to one day.

I like that you can add descriptions to the links, as it allows me to add the main reason I liked the article, which I can refer to if I need to.

This brings me to my main reason, which is that I find that having a library of organised links helps inspire new content ideas. For example, If I like an article and agree with it or have my opinion to share, it will inspire me to write.

Best of all, Bublup makes it super easy to save links with their Chrome Browser Extension.

I use it to organise my content

I find Bublup incredibly useful for organising links to my blog articles, especially since I write on my website and Medium.

This proves to be extremely helpful when I’m writing blog posts, as it means that I can quickly find links to content I may want to link as I write.

I have a folder for my website, Medium and YouTube, and within those folders, I have a directory of subfolders with links per subject.

For example, I’ve lately been writing a lot about Apple, so I have folders called Apple, Apple Watch, iPhone 14 Pro Max etc.

This gives me an easy way to find the links I need so that I can link them in new blog posts.

I use it to share things

Bublup offers a unique way of sharing things with others, you can either share a folder which you can use for collaboration or you can share something called a Roll, which is literally a webpage created from items and folders.

I’ve recently created a Roll which I’ve linked to my website and links page where I will be sharing all the tech, books, and services that I can recommend based on my own, personal experience.

The Roll can be found here, This webpage only took me around 15 minutes to create and edit, which I think is phenomenal.

But generating the Roll only takes seconds. You can even add a custom domain to it, which is what I’ve done.

If I would rather not share Rolls, I can share entire folders instead, which proves to be great for collaboration and for sharing things with family such as family photos.

Use Bublup as a Lead Magnet

This is a feature I am looking to re-introduce with my weekly email newsletter.

I think that Bublup has huge potential as a lead magnet tool, I’m just trying to find ideas of content I could add to the folder. If you have any ideas, let me know in the comments!

Bublup integrates with services such as MailChimp and ConvertKit, which is the service I currently run in my weekly newsletter. That way I can have subscribers sign up using a Bublup sign-up form, and they will gain access to that folder.

I think that giving something back to people for subscribing to my newsletter is a great way to build the community and I can see where it will be beneficial for creative blogs, but, before I reintroduce this feature, I want to see if I can create some things to add to it first.

Final Thoughts

To summarise this article, I think that Bublup is a great tool and I use it for many things in my everyday life.

Apart from what I’ve already discussed, I also like the idea of the AI Creator, which can be extremely beneficial, particularly for planning things.

As an example, say that I’m planning to go for a trip to Rome in Italy for 5 days, I can add this to the AI Creator and have it organised by days. When I press Create Folder, it will create folders for each day with things I could potentially see and do. I think that this is a great feature! But it doesn’t stop there, as you can do so much more with the help of the AI Creator.

Overall, I am highly satisfied with Bublup and the way it is helping me keep things organised as a blogger, that is why as a paying customer, I am leaving my affiliate link, in case you want to try it out for yourself.
