Blogging resources

These are resources we actually use and highly recommend for maintaining a blog. If you’re interested in blogging too, feel free to contact us for more details about how these work.

Digital Nomad Wannabe is the best resource for learning how to blog and turning it into a profitable business. There is heaps of free information, and a more detailed Build Blog Freedom course which covers everything from the basics to advanced information. It’s all taught by Sharon Gourlay; a super-successful travel and business blogger.

ConvertKitConvertkit is an awesome system for managing email subscribers. We easily create subscription widgets and targeted email campaigns, and see detailed reports about the effectiveness of everything we create.

We researched many email management programs before deciding on Convertkit, and chose it because it has functions that help our blog grow. They also have excellent user guides and very responsive real-person assistance.

Tailwind Visual Marketing SuiteTailwind makes a blogger’s life so much easier! It streamlines Pinterest and Instagram usage, plus shows excellent reports to help you know what is working and what isn’t.

We love it for Instagram as you can upload photos directly from a PC, schedule posts for optimal times, and see suggested hashtags that are ranked for effectiveness.

And for Pinterest, Tailwind is simply amazing. We can pin to numerous boards at once, schedule pins for weeks or even months in advance, join Tribes of other pinners in similar niches, and create and schedule pins directly from the net.

You can register for a free trial of Tailwind for both Instagram and Pinterest to test it out for yourself.
