Blogging is hard work. I use so many tools to help me stay on top of everything. Here are some of my favourite blogging resources! If you’re an aspiring blogger, bookmark this page.
Some of the links – but not all – on this page contain affiliate links at no extra cost to you. This means that if you book or buy something through one of these links, I may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you).
Hostgator // This is the company I use to host my website. They have super fast service and affordable monthly and annual plans.
Google Analytics // This free tool tracks stats on the people who visit your blog – it’s a MUST for any blog.
MacBook Air // I was always a PC kind of lady, but Macs are the BEST. I just upgraded to a new MacBook Air and it’s so light and transportable.
Tailwind // I don’t have hours every day to sit around pinning pins to Pinterest. Tailwind saves me hours every week.
SmarterQueue // This is the tool I use to schedule out Twitter and Facebook posts because who has the time to be doing that manually each week? Not me! If you sign up via my link you’ll get a free trial.
Later // I use this tool to schedule my Instagram images. I try to schedule out a month in advance so I can post each week without stressing out about finding images and crafting captions.
Evernote // This is the tool I use to keep all my blog ideas, thoughts, interesting websites and everything else in one place.
