1. I purchased Pinterest with Ell a couple weeks ago but life has been so crazy that I haven’t been able to work through it yet, but that’s my plan for the weekend! I just love her! Followed her for years.

  2. You’ve created a wonderful roundup of blogging resources for new bloggers. I am personally a huge fan of Big Scoots hosting service. The pro version of Canva is amazing. I also agree with you that Mailerlite is an awesome email service to use.

  3. Wow this is amazing!! I was in need of more resources for a couple of problems with my blog and this definitely solved everything! Thank you!

  4. I purchased the Pinterest with Ell course recently. I knew that I had a little extra time during this lockdown and decided to make it productive. I’m impressed with how easy it is to start using her strategies in my own work. I’ve already started to see an impact on the traffic I’m receiving from Pinterest. It’s definitely worth it!!

  5. Tailwind has always been overwhelming to me, but this post reminds me that I probably need to give it another try! So many great tips!

  6. I didn’t expect a detailed guide like this! It’s really useful for the blogging begginers! I have found some useful courses that I probably will join, thanks!

    1. Awesome, I’m so happy you found this list helpful! Which courses are you planning on enrolling into?

  7. Great to see that you use some of the same tools/products that I do. Makes me feel assured that they’re reliable and trustworthy. Thanks for this comprehensive list, Lucy!

    1. Yes, there’s tons of research that happens before I sign up for a blogging tool or enroll into a course lol but it also reassures me that you use the same ones!

  8. Exact article what I was looking for. The information which you have mentioned in this article is very helpful related to blogging resources. Thank you for putting it together. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  9. Very comprehensive list! It’s amazing how many people don’t recognize the value of taking a course…education can only help you on your journey so investing in yourself is so important!

  10. You’ve got some great resources here. I love that you included the legal templates. One of the biggest mistakes that I see new bloggers make is to overlook the legal aspects of their blog – and it can be a costly mistake!

  11. I can’t believe stumbling across your page! I’ going to read this as soon as I have made dinner and put kiddos to bed!!! Thanks for compiling the useful tips… I’m just getting started myself.

  12. What a great list of resources! I’ll be coming back to this over and over as I continuously work on blogging and marketing. Thank you so much for putting everything in one place!

  13. Good list of tools. I use Bluehost for my blogs and I’ve been very happy. Love Canva too. I’m new to Tailwind, but I think it’s going to end up being very helpful for me. Thanks.

  14. Ivory Mix is a brand new one to me so I’ve just taken a look at that and it’s certainly very interesting! Thank you.
    Canva I absolutely love and use it many times a day. What an incredible tool. Great post!

  15. You’ve got some great resources here! I don’t think my Pinterest efforts would be NEARLY as easy without Canva to make it easy to design pins. I am totally addicted to it.

  16. Thanks for all of the great tips! I’ve never heard of about half of these tools as I just started out last month. I’ve got some learning to do. Thanks!

  17. Started blogging in November, for fun and to test out if it’s for me so I’m not paying anything at all so far. I’ve tested out tailwind and I really like it. I’ve also been using Canva from time to time and it’s really nice. I’ve heard of Bluehost and been recommended to host my blog if I ever decide to. Haven’t heard of the others so far. I’m pinning this so I can get back to at a later time.

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Yes it’s good to take it slow. I for sure did everything in steps and not all at once or would have gotten overwhelmed. Saving for later is def a great idea!

  18. I love using Canva for all my Pinterest images! Thanks for listing out Facebook groups that are useful – I really like participating in those so I’m going to check those out!

    1. Same here, I now use Canva for all my graphics! And make sure to check out my add-on post to Facebook groups for additional groups details along with pros & cons!

  19. I wish I had known yesterday that MailerLite was free! LOL I just finished setting up Mailchimp, but I have NOT been happy bc it is not intuitive and the interface is so hard to use! I think I am going to switch! Thanks for the info!

    1. I’ve heard so many bad things about MailChimp but I have personally never used it myself. Hopefully you can get out of your subscription! I love MailerLite 🙂

      1. Great list of blogging tools and resources! I’ve been using Canva for along time but I’m considering a switch to PicMonkey since it’s cheaper. Also love Amira’s templates, which I had bought them sooner!

    1. If you haven’t taken a Pinterest course before, I recommend you either start with Pinterest for New Bloggers or Pinterest with Ell! Pinterest with Ell is a bit more simplified but is a paid course. The other one is a bit more fast paced and detailed but it’s free! Best of luck 🙂

  20. What a great comprehensive list of resources. I’m especially interested in taking some courses. Thanks for the recommendations!

    1. Depending on the stage you are in with your blog, I would recommend one of the Pinterest courses or Blogging Blastoff. Pinterest will focus on boosting your blog traffic using Pinterest strategies while Blogging Blastoff will help you learn how to monetize your blog using different methods! Best of luck 🙂

  21. I love Canva! I did the free trial when I made a pin on my phone and didn’t see the watermark on the image I chose. The resize button was awesome. I do not do Tailwind at this point. It’s out of my budget, but I hear it’s awesome!
