Hi and welcome to my resources library; my favourite tools for art and blogging. I've been blogging for around 16 months and I love every minute of it. I used to have a website years ago and I really did miss it. I have had great blogging advice from a variety of people, in particular from the lovely Jo-Elle over at the Life Over Laundry blog. Anyway, I thought it was about time I passed on some of my favourite resources to you that I use for my art, journaling and blogging.
This page uses affiliate links, but they are all for products that I use and love myself. I would never endorse anything that I didn't personally use.
Blogging Resources and Recommendations
For my blog and hosting I use Weebly. A lot of bloggers tell you to use Wordpress, but Weebly is so easy to use with the drag and drop editor.
If you're not doing affiliate marketing yet then why not? I'm proud to be a member of the AWIN affiliate scheme, they offer great rewards for bloggers. I am currently signed up in partnership with the following brands: Etsy UK, Paperchase, CraftStash, The Range, Create and Craft and many others.
For my newsletter I can recommend Mailchimp. I used to get my email sign ups through a feed, but there were little click throughs. Mailchimp allows me to be a lot more creative with my newsletters.
Pinterest and Tailwind (<--- click to join and get $15 off and get access to Tailwind Tribes). They have massively helped me to get readers to my blog and to increase my traffic. 90% of my traffic is a result of these two. I've also just started using Boardbooster to loop my pins.

The must have art tools I use on a daily basis:
