These are my all-time favorite blogging tools and resources I have been using on my blogs. I highly recommend each of them because my blogs wouldn’t be where they are today without any of these.
I have included links to each one of them to help you get started as fast as possible. Some of these links are affiliate links so if you purchase from them, I will be receiving a commission at no extra cost to you.
SiteGround is the best self-hosting platform any beginner or experienced bloggers can start on. Simple to configure on your own but if you run into any problems, they have a support line that is available 24/7. Get started from as low as $3.95 a month
Namecheap is where I like to get my domain names for a very good and affordable price. Whenever I think of a catchy name that can potentially be a blog one day, I just buy it for keeps because of how affordable they are. They offer self-hosting plans as well but I’d go with Blue Host for ease.
If you are tired of manually pinning on Pinterest, Tailwind is your next best choice. I still work in the corporate world and just won’t be able to squeeze out time for manual pinning. Tailwind saves me a bunch of time. If you want to try it for free, use this link to get $15 credit to try it out for a month.
Grammarly is a (basically free) grammar tool I just can’t blog without. It catches spelling and grammatical errors while you type and gives you auto-correct suggestions to put in place of your errors in one-click. It has drastically reduced the time spent on the proofreading blog posts.
Many bloggers collect emails from their audiences in order to build a more personal connection with their readers. An email list enables you to notify your readers whenever there is a new blog post or update on the blog. Collecting emails is also very beneficial for selling digital products that may help your audience. Mailerlite is very simple to use and allows you to keep up to 1,000 subscribers for free.
