Resources to make you a better blogger
I thought it would nice to share some of my favourite tools and resources used to edit and maintain my website and social media. Hopefully you will find this helpful :)
My website is hosted through Weebly.com. I choose an ecommerce site because I make childrens clothes and wanted to sell them online, but also I want the control to create my own shop like platform. Weeblys great as its simple to use and has a drag & drop feature is easy enough for me to understand. There's also loads of helpful tutorials on Youtube by Weebly or you can email the Weebly community for questions and and they usually respond within 24 hrs. (I sound like a sales lady) :/
I found Canva.com through listening to The Social Media Talk show Podcast, if you haven't tuned in yet, you guys gotta! Canva is a great tool for designing and editing graphics to use on social media, websites etc.. In fact there's a whole host a useful ideas for you to navigate through. You can search through the ideas, use the drag & drop feature to swap out and change graphics to suit your needs. Here's an example graphic which I created from a photo for my blog post.
(I nearly forgot to mention they've an App version too! :)
Google SERP Snippet optimization tool
This one I totally stumbled on but love, love, love.. This tool uses Google's search engine results pages (SERPs). So you would quote "use the form below to enter the title, meta description, and URL of your web page, and this tool will generate a virtual search result listing based on your input." It's a free tool and extremely helpful.
I've been using MailChimp for years to build my email lists. You can sign up for free, build up to 2,000 subscribers before you need to pay anything, there's loads of learning resources and helpful articles. You can also integrate it to your website, have pop ups and even batch process a ton of emails in advance.
