Favorite Blogging Resources:
If you’re starting a new blog or transferring an old blog to be self-hosted, I strongly recommend Hostgator as your site host. It’s affordable, easy to use, and provides excellent customer service. Find my tutorial HERE to set up a blog using Hostgator.
Pinterest is KEY to growing a blog. However, it takes an incredible amount of time to pin regularly to Pinterest. Tailwind does this work for you! It’s cheap, easy to use, and so helpful for getting your content onto as many group boards as possible.
This 8-session workshop inspired me when I was feeling discouraged as a Christian blogger. I learned a ton about marketing, social media, and content planning. But my biggest take-away was about stewardship. We have a message to steward, and stewardship = diligence + consistency. I highly recommend this workshop!
Your blog design matters. With millions of blogs and more being created every day, you need an easy-to-navigate, simple, beautiful design. Angie Makes is my very favorite theme designer. I’ve tried multiple themes over the years, and I always come back to Angie Makes.
