You can’t have a successful blog without investing in various tools and resources. These are some of the ones I use and recommend to other bloggers.
SiteGround has affordable shared hosting plans. Check out why I use SiteGround instead of BlueHost or HostGator.
Google offers an inexpensive email service called G Suite that lets you send and receive email using your domain name as the email address. Use these promo codes to get 20% off your first year: F93L63G7TMTUCR6 (for the basic plan) or JAYYTGWU9M3VGJE (for the business plan).
WordPress is a free content management system that lets you create blog posts and pages and keeps it all organized for you.
ConvertKit has several smart options and formats for collecting emails and sending out your newsletters. Their customer support is the best I’ve ever dealt with, so much love to them for that 🙂
Tailwind lets you schedule your Pinterest and Instagram posts, and helps you promote your content using Tribes. (This is every bloggers’ “secret” for growing their traffic.)
Creative Fabrica is my go-to source for free and inexpensive commercial-use fonts and graphics.
A list of sites that I get free stock photos from.
I use GIMP to make all of my own graphics. It’s similar to Photoshop but is 100% free.
