Hi there and Welcome!
I am happy to share with you my Resource Tool Box. It’s my hope that you have success with using any of these. This post does contain affiliate links. This means I may receive a commission for purchases made from some of these links. My commissions have no impact on the cost you pay. All of these products and services I am referring, I have personally used and would recommend. As a new blogger, I relied on these products and services to get my website set-up and working functionally rather quickly. I would hope you would have the same success.
I use Tailwind to schedule my Pinterest posts on all my boards at least 10 times a day. Best practice is posting not only your content but also content from other bloggers and pinners. I saw the most results using this method. Recently, I reduced the amount I post to no more than 5 times a day, sometimes, only twice a day. This was because of the time investment and commitment to finding relevant content to share. However, I would recommend, if you have the time, at least 10 posts a day. Tailwind can help with the rest.
My inspiration for blogging came from many successful bloggers that have acquired through trial and error ways to be financially stable while blogging. One of those bloggers is Michelle Schroeder-Gardner of the Making Sense of Cents Empire.
I actually participated in Michelle’s Affiliate Marketing course and learned a ton of valuable information related to how to set my blog up to earn residual income. That’s like earning money, while you sleep, just off your blog. The concept seems crazy, however, since attending the course, I’ve earned over $500 so far with my blog.
Bluehost is a web hosting service. I’ve used Bluehost for the past 5 years and have had nothing but the best experience with their service offering and customer support. Although Bluehost offers chat, I’ve found the service is not the same as calling their customer service line. You are connected with an experienced professional happy to answer any questions you have.
Have you ever thought about starting a blog or website? I share my experience with Bluehost in my post; “Start a Blog“.
Grammarly is a proofreading program that integrates with your search engine. I use Grammarly for all of my proofreading needs. Not only does Grammarly check spelling and grammar, but also sentence structure, tense, plagiarism, and much more. Although Grammarly does a good job checking my posts and website content, it should always be a best practice to have a friend look over your work, just to be sure. Grammarly is FREE, however, do offer an affordable upgraded plan. I find having Grammarly is necessary for my blog. Visit their website here.

I use the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan for my Photoshop needs. Photoshop is used primarily for creating blog post images, social media posts, and assets for my marketing. I would definitely encourage having Photoshop in your tool box so you can create beautiful, eye-popping, visuals to bring visitors to your site and content. Adobe Creative Cloud is $9.99 a month. An inexpensive cost for your marketing. Learning Photoshop is not difficult at all. I use online tutorials to help me accomplish what I need with the program.
