You can’t get the job done without the right tools! I’ve put together a list of resources of tools and programs I use and recommend. If you’re looking for resources to help your blog succeed, it’s all here!

I am currently self hosting my blog with a WordPress account. Self hosting gives me the ability to have my own domain name and provides me with the opportunity to monetize my blog.
I HIGHLY recommend using SiteGround to self host your blog. SiteGround has high security, excellent service (they transferred everything over for me from a different host – at no additional cost and no fuss) and speedy servers.
Are you ready to up your blogging game? The Mastering Sales with Ell course is only $20 and is worth every penny. Ell goes into deep detail about what steps to take in monetizing your blog.
Building your email list is a huge part of growing your blog. I’ve been using MailChimp and find it extremely easy to use – plus the Forever Free plan, is well, free with up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month!
If you follow any bloggers or influencers on Instagram, I’m sure you have heard of LIKEtoKNOW.it a time or two. If you want to get started with affiliated marketing, then you should consider applying to rewardStyle. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t get approved right away, I had a few rejections before finally getting approved. I can also refer friends to the program, so please reach out when you’re ready to apply and I would love to help you out!
I’ve been using Tailwind now for a couple of months and it has increased my blog views by using Pinterest and Tailwind together. In the month of May 2018, my average monthly viewers on Pinterest increased by 1,500%!! My average monthly viewers on Pinterest has officially reached over 7 MILLION!
