Blogging is a funny thing. So much goes into it. More than the average reader who is a non-blogger would even think. It’s important for me to have tools to make it easier. That’s what Blogging Resources I’m Loving is about.
My first overall pick of blogging resources would have to be The SITS Girls website. It is filled with amazing content. You can click on the Learn tab and literally read for hours.
Second, I have discovered the usefulness of an editorial calendar, thanks to Adrienne at the Mommy Mess. I read her post about Content Brew and I ordered the course and one of the first things we were taught was why (and how) to have an editorial calendar. I have a Google Docs. calendar now that is pretty much always open on my computer so I can add projects or ideas as they come.
Thirdly, I love Pic Monkey for editing photos and making graphics when I need one. I actually upgraded from the free one, but even before I did there was still so many things for using Pic Monkey. It’s definitely a resource I’m loving!
The fourth thing that is a resource I’m loving is a book I purchased called Everything but the Post by Becca Ludlum who blogs over at My Crazy Good Life. This book is a practical, step by step, how-to book. Kudos to Becca. Loved the book!
The fifth and last resource I’m loving is Youtube. This is another great tool for those who like to add video or are giving vlogging a go. There are even tutorials there that are actually great resources. One of my favorite vloggers is Kat at Mama Kat’s Losin It. She is everywhere but especially on Youtube. Hear that Ellen DeGeneres? Check her out!
Okay so I found it really difficult to stop with just these five resources I’m loving because there are truly so many things I use. Where would any of us be without Google? I know, right?
Twitter is great for getting in touch with people, businesses or even celebs. Did you read Why I Love Twitter and see my conversation with Bruce Boxleitner? Ok, conversation is a bit of a stretch but check it out!
Facebook is another resource that is great as long as you look past the junk and goofy stuff you could really care less about. Social media of any kind can be a very useful resource.
I could go on, no really, but I will stop now. Tell me your what resource you are loving.
