Best Blogging Tools and Resource for Beginners

Blogging Basics

These are the things that every blog should have. For us, they include:  1. Hosting 2. Social media 3. Google Analytics 4. Email

Hosting

Every blog needs a host, and if you’re serious about blogging you should buy hosting so you can have your own .com site.  There are several options for hosting out there. When we were new, the main hosting company promoted by the bigger blogs was Bluehost, and that’s who we’ve gone with thus far in our blogging journey.

Social Media

One of the most essential tools and resources for new bloggers is having your own social media pages. Having a presence on social media not only helps you connect with other bloggers and brands but is the easiest and cheapest way to promote your content. The main social media sites used by bloggers are Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Google Analytics

Google is the largest and most well-used search engine, and Google Analytics helps you get all the stats about your blog you need to know. You can track your sessions, page views, as well as who is visiting your site and what pages they are visiting.

Blog Post Tools 1. Canva

Canva is a free online graphic design platform that helps you create a plethora of different visual content, and not just for blogging. You can create Pinterest pins, flyers, posters, invitations, and tons of other things. There are lots of free templates you can use, along with different fonts, colors, and arrangements.

2. Blog Photos

Blog articles do better when there are pictures. Whether you’re just looking for a featured image or pics to accentuate your post, there are a few great sites you should know about.  While there are many okay sites out there, the ones we use most often are Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels.

3. Blog Post Research

If you’re really serious about your blog and looking to rank well with your articles, you need to create an account with Moz. Moz is one of the best tools and resources for new bloggers. Moz offers a wide range of search engine optimization (SEO) tools for those looking to enhance their online presence.

Promotion/Connection

We heard from several big bloggers that blogging is 20% content and 80% promotion. Indeed, promoting your content is a huge part of blogging. We have yet to invest in paid promotion such as ads, but we’ve still been able to get the word out in other ways. The ultimate goal is to get to a point where people begin finding your site organically through search engines.
