After seven years of blogging, I found tools and products that have definitely become my go-to methods for getting work done in a more effective manner. There have been lots of you asking about different products, so I started this page as resource to share them all with YOU in one simple spot!
I also have a ton of how-to blog type posts at the bottom of this page, so be sure to scroll down to the bottom for all that great information.
This will be a running list of things I use, love and would recommend to others. I hope this is useful and please be sure to let me know if there are other items you would be interested hearing more about!

If you have a content creating blog, you need Tailwind. After setting up my different campaigns, I now pin my posts to those three or four group boards and they automatically pin for a month straight without me thinking about them again. I’ve grown my Pinterest traffic ten-fold since using Tailwind, it’s a great resource.

PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK FOR BLOGGERS:
Do you know the blog Place of My Taste? Aniko’s photography blows my mind and when she announced she was going to write a Photography ebook giving ALL her secrets to stunning pictures, tips on staging for interior spaces, flatlays AND food shots… I knew I had to read it. And I did and then my mind exploded with all the potential of my camera that I wasn’t taking advantage of! PLUS as if it could get better – if you use Adobe Lightroom, she is selling LightRoom presets for editing pictures. Major time saver.
HOSTING : Hostgator
I’ve used Hostgator since I started my blog, three + years ago and I’ve never had a single issue. I love that they have 24 hour chat tech support and have used it twice. They were so helpful and walked me through the steps to resolve any issue I was having. And they have great rates, starting at $6 a month for WordPress sites! Love me some Hostgator.
