Book Blogger Hop: What apps do you use to create your social media posts? #BookBloggerHop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blogs.

I use the Shutterstock website a lot for photos, and they have a cool create/edit feature that helps you create Instagram, Facebook, and other social media posts. I’m interested in finding other sites/apps though. Shutterstock costs me about $30 a month for ten photos, but I can create as many social media posts as I want using existing photos. I get to keep using the photo licenses I’ve bought before so I have a big catalog to choose from.

Anyone have any suggestions for sites/apps to create social media posts, especially Instagram?

  1. I had a subscription to Shutterstock for images, but switched to Adobe Stock as it was less expensive – at the time. Their cost is the same now. For posts, I use photoshop, same for covers, but I know so many people who love Canva and Bookbrush for posts, so I need to look into those.


      1. Thank you, Bonnie. I started out just using a few basic features in photoshop and (spent a whole lot of time) playing with it, adding more features as I went. I probably would have saved a lot of time and aggravation taking a class first…lol, but apparently, I like doing things the hard way.

  2. I use Canva and Pixlr. Canva has a lot of images and it’s easy to use. I use Pixlr to put a book cover on a photo for Instagram, and it’s useful for that.
