This was the first blog course I ever took, and it did nothing short of amazing things for my blog. You can read about my success but in a nutshell, it was the best money I ever spent on training! This is the training I recommend for the newbie blogger.
How To Blog For Profit Without Selling Your Soul – By Ruth Soukup
Full of great content by the same woman who brought us Elite Blog Academy. Good first read if you’re contemplating a blog but haven’t yet decided.
A good read for wanting to understand what goes into starting a blog.
One of my all-time favorites. I loved this book so much I am now taking his course and will include this resource once I’m through it and can give you an honest assessment.
FAVORITE BLOGGING TOOLS
If you’re starting a blog, you’ll go nowhere fast without harnessing the power of Pinterest. Pinterest drives so much traffic to my site each month it’s insane, and it keeps growing! Here’s what I recommend.
Tailwind – I ONLY use Tailwind to pin my content. Why? Because it’s an approved program of Pinterest and it does make a difference. Also, Tailwind has this cool feature called Tribes which helps to promote your content and have it seen by more people. Awesome tool – don’t bother with anything else.
Email marking is the number one way you’ll drive revenue. Make sure you consider your options carefully when picking an email marketing platform.
Mail Chimp – If you’re just starting out and don’t have an email list, I recommend going with Mailchimp. You’re first 2000 subscribers are free, making it very economical for the person just starting out.
DRIP – If you are serious about making money with your blog, skip over Mailchimp and go directly to DRIP. DRIP provides the features you need for a professional blogger.

PicMonkey – The editing program I use to make all my photos look fantastic! Upgrade to the Royal version for all the incredible editing capabilities available through the Monkey!
