My Favorite Blogging Tools and Resources

If you’re looking to grow your blog, start from basics. Here are a few links to my favorite resources. The following list contains affiliate links. For more information, please read my Affiliate Disclosure.

Training & Education

  • Elite Blog Academya blogging course taught by New York Times best-selling author, Ruth Soukup. I took this course myself in 2016 and since I started implementing all the concepts, I have seen steady growth. I explain more in detail in my post 10 Reasons to Join the Elite Blog Academy.

Blog Building & Design

  • Bluehost: web hosting. This is a must-have service if you want to have a self-hosted blog that you can monetize.
  • Genesis Framework: Genesis provides a secure and search-engine-optimized foundation for any self-hosted WordPress blog. After installing the Genesis Framework, install a Child Theme to design the blog the way you want it without having to mess with the code.
  • Restored 316: feminine WordPress themes. This blog uses the Darling Child Theme. I explain what a Child Theme is in this post if you need clarification.
  • Canva for Work: design beautiful graphics with this amazing online tool.

Marketing Tools

  • ConvertKit: email marketing company for professional bloggers. Plans start at $29/month
  • Tailwind: Pinterest and Instagram scheduling made easy.
