Starting a new blog can be very overwhelming. These are the resources I use all the time to making maintaining my website easier. The links below could be affiliate links so I’ll get a small commission if you sign up using my link. I would promote these resources even if I didn’t use them because they are that amazing. Thank you for your support!
I host my website through A Small Orange and I LOVE them. I just spent 20 minutes on live chat with them to help run a backup on my website and they were super patient with me. They are always available to help and you can even chat with a real person before you buy anything. On my old host, I had problems with getting an email back within a week.
Build is Amy T Schubert’s blogging ecourse and it’s fantastic. I regularly work my way through the course because there’s always something I’d love someone else’s take on. It’s always awesome to get a refresh on all aspects of blogging.
This is my theme. I love that every website I’ve seen built on Athualpa looks different. It’s 100% customizable to whatever you want. Color themes, sidebars, dividers between everything, whatever you want to create with your theme is possible.
You know I love Evernote. It’s where I store everything. Post ideas, amazing articles I read, recipes. It all goes in Evernote.
I am slowly increasing my Twitter strategy by posting amazing links from around the web and other bloggers several times a day to my Twitter stream. Hootsuite makes it easy by posting at the most ideal times of the day. Unlike Buffer, there aren’t any limits to the number of tweets you can schedule, so you can schedule when you have time.
I use Canva to create all of my text based images for my posts. It’s free unless you want to use premium art and super easy to use. I’m addicted to it.
