Hey , guys we all have same goal as bloggers- to help others and monetize our talents,But with so many different products out there, it can be hard to decide what’s worth buying and what isn’t.

So today I’m sharing an EXTENSIVE list of all of the blogging resources and blog software that I use and recommend as a blogging business .

SETTING UP YOUR BLOG

HOSTING & DOMAINS

  • Bluehost: I’ve used Bluehost since Day 1 and still use them to this day. I recommend using shared hosting to begin with (which is what I did) and then upgrading to VPS hosting as you grow (which is what I use for some of my sites now).

PLATFORMS

Here is my step-by-step tutorial on how to setup your blog with WordPress.org and Bluehost.

SITE ASSISTANCE

RUNNING YOUR SITE

SPEED

  • Cloudflare
  • Ewww Image Optimizer WordPress plugin to compress your images
  • W3 Total Cache WordPress plugin to increase site performance
  • Upgrade your hosting plan or switch from a shared hosting plan to a Virtual Private Server (VPS) plan. Bluehost offers these VPS prices, which I have personally used before.

ANTI-SPAM

  • Akismet plugin for free cloud-based and anti-spam plugins

BACKUP YOUR SITE

  • BackWPup plugin (For WordPress- can be used with Dropbox, which is also free.)

STORAGE SPACE FOR FILES, PHOTOS, ETC.


WRITING

KEYWORD RESEARCH

WRITING TOOLS

*Note: Yes, I’m incredibly old-fashioned and I use notebooks and legal pads to write the majority of my outlines for videos and blog posts. With a young kiddo at home, I try to limit how much he sees me sit in front of a computer. Writing this way helps with that goal.
