Touch lives, make an impact and generate an income.

Are you passionate about something, and long to share your knowledge and surround yourself with people who share that passion?

Blogging is a perfect fit!

I've created a list of the tools and resources that make the process easier and more successful.

These links are affiliate links if you decide to purchase any of the products I will get a small percentage of the sale, with no extra cost to you.
But I stand by all these products and only recommend companies that I believe in.

Webhosting

I LOVE Podcast Websites, they are a managed WordPress host, they take care of all the tech, and provide wonderful templates to create beautiful pages. They do specialize in a podcasting space and have all the help you need to start a podcast.
Click here for more info on Podcast Websites and use the code HOSTME to get $10 off every month for life.
If you are not interested in hosting a podcast, then Flywheel is another wonderful option. They make the process of creating a site as easy as possible, and I like them because they take care of the tech side.
It is more of a learning curve in the beginning but saves so much headache. I personally started with a Blogspot site and had to upgrade two years later. I struggled for months to figure out the new platform, and now firmly believe it's easier to start with the one that will carry you for years.

Email System

I would definitely recommend ConvertKit for emails. I've used them since 2015, love their customer support and they've gone out of their way to make my life easier.

Picture Editing & Graphic Design

Picmonkey is simple to use and has templates that make it easy to create beautiful images for all social media: Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Facebook pages or groups, Youtube thumbnails, and everything in between.

Social Media Managing

IG & Pinterest:
I use Tailwind to manage Pinterest and Instagram. They are easy to use, easy to understand and make it easy to see what is working.
Facebook Pages & Groups:
CoSchedule has made it easy to post on Facebook, on my pages, and in my groups. Which means, when I create a challenge and need a check-in thread on a daily basis, I can set it up easily ahead of time and never worry about it again.
I can also repurpose posts, so I don't have to spend hours each week scheduling Facebook posts.

Creating an income

 

Business coach:
The most effective way to create an income from your blog is to sell something you create, something that solves a problem. The business coach I have learned the most from has been Sara Dann. She is straight forward, has incredible free training and the business model she teaches is all about serving others and creating products that definitely help others, and that you fully stand behind and get excited about.

Checkout pages:
My favorite way to accept money and deliver digital products is through Samcart. They make the process easy, have great records and make whatever style checkout page you want. They also have a 14-day free trial, so you can play around with it before making a commitment.

My affiliate program:
If you have built an audience around decluttering, minimalism and intentional living and would like to share my products with your audience, you can create an affiliate link for my site here:
