Welcome to the resources page where I share the resources I use for blogging and in business. I will not include items on this page unless I use it and love it. As I learn more, I will continue to add to this page. I hope you enjoy!
Some of these resources are affiliates I support, but I would never recommend anything to you that I wouldn’t 100% back myself. This means that should you purchase from some of these links, I will receive a small commission from the sale at no extra cost to you. I promise to only offer you the best branding, business, blogging and design resources to help you make that lasting impression.
MacHighway: I have been absolutely thrilled with the level of customer service MacHighway provides.
Dropbox: I use Dropbox every day in order for both of us to have access to the same files. It also serves as a system to back up our important business items. Dropbox is free until you reach a certain storage threshold.
MailChimp: Our email service provider of choice!
Photos, Photo Editing & Graphics
Creative Market: An online marketplace where you can buy digital design goods to use in your personal or commercial projects. This means everything from fonts, icons, and themes, to clipart, UI kits, Photoshop brushes, stock photographs and much, much more. Creative Market offers awesome free goods each week!
PicMonkey: Once you have great photos, edit them, add labels, and add words here! PicMonkey is easy to use and has a free version.
Canva.com: Their templates for mixing beautiful fonts together makes graphic design easy! Instead of having to test and experiment for hours, you can use one of the pre-made designs and change the wording, photo, and you’re ready with a gorgeous eye-pleasing image with font overlaid. They offer free stock photos and others that you can purchase for $1.
Fotofuze: A great web application that makes the background of your photo super white… just like the pics on the front page of your favorite online shops. Try it! You’ll love it!
Gimp: A great free Photoshop alternative.
Organization and Scheduling
Hootsuite: Hootsuite is great for scheduling social shares and interacting with your fans and followers via their dashboard. You can also get reports on your activity, click thru rates and a plethora of other things.
