I’m a habitual list-maker, so it was only natural that I put together a few lists of things that have made a positive difference in various areas of my life.

Check them out, and maybe you will find a few new favorites of your own!

Blogging Resources

I am never going to blog about blogging. There are too many others out there who have so much more experience than I do! Instead, I’ll just share with you resources that have helped me in my blog life:

TracieFobes.com I have read every single one of Tracie’s posts, and I refer back to them when I have specific questions about how to do pretty much anything. Tracie’s advice is clear, concise, and correct. I’ve purchased several of her courses as well, and they are excellent (and affordable!)

BlogMarketingAcademy.com David approaches blogging very much as a business first, which gives a very different perspective from many “how to blog” sites. The level of detail David provides is incredible, and his Online Business Roadmap is pure quality. I’m looking forward to joining The Lab when I can – I know it’s gotta be superb.

ASelfGuru.com This is the site to go to for legal information. Amira has the most comprehensive legal page templates available. Start with her Legal Bundle, and add on additional documents as you need them. The peace of mind knowing you are legally protected is worth every penny.

There is much discussion as to the best web hosting, but I started with Siteground and have nothing but positive things to say regarding the service I have received.

Hands down, Canva is my favorite source for graphics creation – and the free version is so robust!

You won’t work with Pinterest very long before you realize the value of scheduling your pins, and Tailwind does it best.

I like the free version of Later for scheduling Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Grammarly.com also has an excellent free program and has been a real asset helping me break my “put a comma everywhere” habit.

MailerLite gets top points for being a free (to 1,000 subscribers) email program. Easy to use, and very versatile.

Ultimate Bundles was the first affiliate marketing program I joined. Not only are the product bundles a bargain, but they provide you with all of the training and marketing materials you could possibly need to be successful.

Share A Sale is another easy to join and easy to use affiliate program. They have hundreds (thousands, maybe) of online retailers within their program, and you are free to join and represent as many as you choose.

I just joined Rakuten which is an easy-to-use cash-back system. You don’t even have to have an online presence, anyone can use it! Click HERE to get $10 off your first purchase.

Shopping with Your Heart

Purchase with a purpose at the Kuel Life Shop, and find products inspired by women and made by women from around the world.

Ten Thousand Villages is the granddaddy of Fair Trade retail and the online store has an incredible product range.

The Peace Exchange and Global Fashion Mission are also Fair Trade non-profits with outstanding product lines (and their founders are friends of mine, so double love!)
