Blogging can be intimidating for a beginner, but there are resources to make the process easier for a beginner. The three that I am about to share with you are ones that I use on a daily basis, that are a game-changer in my blogging journey. Here are three of my favorite resources to use while blogging.
PicMonkey Helps a New Blogger Create Amazing Graphics
Graphics can be incredibly intimidating to new bloggers. That’s why that cheeky little monkey is a new blogger’s best friend. PicMonkey is a powerful tool to help bloggers create graphics as featured images, Facebook graphics, and twitter images.
This web-based tool provides customizable templates. “The Hub” stores templates you create. See the images that I use on my blog? Most of these are templates that remain in the hub. I do not spend hours creating graphics for blog posts; I simply edit the templates, replace some photos in the templates, export them to my computer, and then add them to my posts.
Graphics no longer intimidate me, and I have PicMonkey to thank for that.
TailWind Allows New Bloggers to Promote their Content Effectively on Pinterest
No successful blogger hits the “publish” button and sits back, hoping for the best. Bloggers must promote their content effectively and efficiently. Pinterest is one of the top resources for sharing blog posts, and Tailwind helps schedule content so that it does not flood the feed of followers all at once.
Additionally, “tribe,” or groups that mutually share content help your posts reach further and further. When used effectively these repins can help your content reach further audiences, exploding your reach and helping you become a more valued authority.
Creative Market Provides Resource Templates Perfect for a New Blogger
Scared of creating resources on your own? Need to try out templates created just for your needs? Look no further than Creative Market. You can find hundreds of downloadable templates and resources, many of which you can customize to fit your own branding and colors. Many of the templates are made for Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, but most are editable in Canva (another free online graphics editor).
You can purchase almost anything you need to create amazing graphics on Creative Market. Fonts, digital papers, infographics, pre-designed templates – you name it, you can find it. Additionally, Creative Market offers bonuses with purchases – that means you can build an incredible digital library of resources quickly.
Bonus Resource: An Excellent Hosting Provider
Oh yeahhhhh friends. New bloggers, you gotta find a good hosting provider. I’m a huge fan of SiteGround – which is why I wrote an entire blog post all about SiteGround. Make sure you check it out and see if SiteGround might be a good fit for you as well.
So now you’ve heard of my favorite resources – what are some of yours? Share some of your favorite blogging resources in the comments.
