In the process of creating this blog (and others) I’ve discovered some tools that I use and love. They have been indispensable. I like to share those tools with my readers, because they make the task of blogging that much easier. If you don’t have the right tools, your work will suffer.

Affiliate Network

If you’re going to monetize your blog, you’ll need a good affiliate network to work with. I’ve been using this network for about 3 years (with my other blogs), and I love it.

Domain and Hosting

Email Marketing

I use this email marketing tool because it’s SUPER easy to understand. I found that many email marketing tools say that they’re easy to use, but turned out to be ridiculously confusing. 

Link Shortener

ECommerce Plugin

I use this ecommerce plugin to sell e-books related to content topics. It’s super easy to set up, and easy to configure payment with your payment processor.

Image Compression

If you want you site to run smoothly, image compression is one of the things that you need to consider. No one wants to wait for what feels like an eternity, while your images load. So it’s important to have an image compression plugin.

As I write this, the blog is new, but I will be adding tools as I progress, but these are the tools that I’m using up to this point.
