Below are just some of the blogging and content creating tools that make this job so much easier! Sharing these so you too can learn what tools are out there to decide what works best for you and your business!

Hosting

I switched over to self-hosting on SiteGround within the first few weeks of my blogging journey. At the time, so many fellow bloggers recommended SiteGround and I couldn’t be more grateful because my experience with them has been nothing but awesome.

SiteGround is super easy to use, very secure and they have excellent customer service. They offer a variety of high quality services and walk you through every step of the way. I was a total newbie and was able to do things with building my blog that I never thought possible.

If you would like to give SiteGround a try, I highly recommend it. You can use my referral link and let me know how much you love it because I know you will!

Images

Canva is my go to for all the photos (with the exception of a few event photos I’ve taken) here. Canva makes it so easy to search for stock images on any topic as well as to create text, quotes, Pinterest pins and pretty much anything you need! I currently have a Canva pro account and for $12.99 a month, I get all I described above and more for use both here and on my Instagram.

Planning

Planoly is one of my favorite new(ish) to me apps. I absolutely love using it to help plan out my content for Instagram and it has completely increased my efficiency. For $8.99 a month, I can schedule out all types of content for future publishing. Currently, I don’t use the auto publish feature but I do schedule all my content and get reminders to quickly publish it. With a few clicks, my image(s), captions and hashtags are all ready to go and easily published to my account. Planoly has a lot of additional features making it a fabulous tool for content creators!

Pinterest

Tailwind is my jam for utilizing Pinterest to share my blog posts! Though I am relatively new to Tailwind, I am already loving so many aspects of it. I began with their free account which will get you 30 pins shared a month then upgraded to the Plus plan so I can share up to 400 pins for $15 a month. I am still diving in to the additional features of Tailwind but the tribes features and all the functionalities are spot on so far!

Another tool I used and am still referring to was created by a fellow blogger boss girl, Ell, called Pinterest with Ell. She put together a fantastic course outlining her successful Pinterest strategy which she continually updates as the algorithm changes! Y’all, this course helped me so much and I highly recommend it!

You can check out the course using my affiliate link here! Additionally, check out the Boss Girl Bloggers page for great content and to learn from so many Gals out there doing their thing!
