Resources for Blogging
These are the providers of DIVI, which is, in my opinion, the best premium theme ever built. Super easy to use, and extremely versatile. Their support is super awesome too. As you can guess, this blog operates on the DIVI theme.
Probably the best and most common blogging platform out there. If you ever wanted to control and handle your blog by yourself – WordPress should be your tool of choice.
I use this tool in order to know what goes on the blog. Where are people coming from and what they like to read. It’s super important to know what are your users responding to, that way you can serve them with more relevant and interesting stories.
Docs, Sheets, Survey and more… if you don’t know these tools, I have no idea where you’ve been in the last years. Makes it possible to work on the same file, from different devices. One of the better services google created, including Gmail, which is the KING!
I used to write really long sentences that had no ending. I got over it with the use of Hemingway. This tool/service diagnose your writing and lets you know when you need to make your writing easier and clearer for reading.
Back in the days when I started writing, my grammar was horrible. It is far from being perfect now, but it would have been much worse without the use of ginger. It is the perfect grammar checker tool out there. Together with Hemnigway, things are much more readable.
If you run a WordPress site and you care, ever the slightest, about SEO, this is a must have plugin. It analysis your pages and posts, and gives you great advice about how to improve them. The free version of the plugin is quite enough to any beginner.
Adobe Creative Cloud (CC)
This is by far the most popular creative suite most designers use. I tried using other design tools, but I always ended up returning to the adobe ones. I’ve been using them for more than 20 years, so I guess they are doing something right.
A leading mail distribution service. By far, the most friendly and cool service I know. A lot of people use them, as they are easy to operate. The best thing is, you can collect and send emails with them for free, at the start. And later when you grow, you can grow and start using their paid service.
A brainstorming application. It allows you to create a mind map of your desired ideas. Easy to operate and the free version is quite enough for most of my needs.
This is one of the most common way to implement ads on your site. A simple way to earn a few bucks from your blog. Don’t expect to get rich from it, unless you have massive amount of traffic running through your site.
