Blogging can be difficult, especially when you don’t know what blogging resources are worth your time and money!

I still remember my first year of blogging, trying to figure out everything on my own; refusing to invest in my education as I was too stubborn to know how truly beneficial it would have been.

So, I want to share with you all the resources that I have found that have been worth the investment and have moved my blogs forward; helped increase my pageviews, leveled up my mindset, or improved my blog and blogging journey in some way!

This page is not complete, yet. There is more to come, but I’d rather have a half skeleton version up to start helping you, rather than nothing at all! So, please keep that in mind, as I will be coming back to this page as time allows to provide more info on the blogging resources that I recommend and why I recommend them.

These are my personal blogging resources recommendations;


I would not have been able to grow my first blog and stay consistent, while also caring for, and homeschooling my kids, without Tailwind and being able to schedule my pins for all my posts. It is well worth the investment, and if you sign up with the link above, you’ll get a $15 credit after you upgrade from your free trial!


They say the money is in the list, but they don’t tell you how to create the list, maintain it, or write to them from. If you’re just starting out, or even further along, Mailerlite is an affordable email service provider that will help you grow and communicate with your ‘list’. It’s the one I’m still using, even after blogging for more than 3 years. This is one of the top 5 tools you NEED when starting a blog.

Hosting- Siteground

If you’re new to blogging or have less than 100K pageviews per month, this is the hosting company you should be using. They have great customer service and affordable pricing. I wrote more about this blog hosting site here.

Hosting- Bigscoots

If you have more than 100K pageviews per month, Bigscoots is the blog hosting company I recommend. This is the company I am currently using for both of my blogs.

The Genius Bloggers Toolkit

This bundle of E-courses, Ebooks, and more about blogging only comes around once, maybe twice a year. So, grab it while you can, or put aside $100 to purchase it the next time it comes out. The resources inside are always worth at least a couple grand. So it’d be silly to pass up this deal if you’re serious about growing a profitable blog. In fact, it’s on sale January 15th-16th, 2020. If you’re reading this the day I’m publishing it, then go grab the toolkit here NOW!

Pinteresting Strategies

When I originally bought this, it was an ebook. But, the creator, Carly Campbell from has updated it and turned it into an even more amazing course. Click here to learn more.
