The Internet is full of resources for bloggers, but how do you know which ones to choose? This is my list of tried-and-true programs + sites that I use.

ConvertKit - This is what I use for my email list. It’s easy to navigate, the staff is supportive + helpful, and I was able to use it with ease as a beginner blogger.
CreativeLive - I took the class “Starving to Successful: How to Become a Full-Time Writer” by Jeff Goins, and it’s helped me build this blog + my writing career much faster than I could’ve on my own. Jeff Goins recommends ConvertKit in this course, and that’s why I went with it. He hasn’t steered me wrong yet! (. . . not that I’ve ever talked to him in person.)
Grammarly - This is a great tool that corrects your grammar and usage as you go. It’s saved me from countless typos in emails, articles, etc that my normal word processor didn’t catch.
Squarespace - This is the platform I use for this website. It’s easy to use, doesn’t give me any problems, and the support is decent. Lots of people say to use Wordpress, but it’s not for me. And that’s why I switched to Squarespace.
Unsplash - This is a website full of beautiful, free stock photos. I use some of my own pictures, but I get a lot (like the one above) from Unsplash.
