My Favorite Resources for Blogging
Like any business person, bloggers have favorite resources we rely on for support and to help us create the business (in this case, a blog) that we aspire to ~ for our readers and ourselves. And because like any blogger, I love to share and spread the news, I’m listing my favorite resources that I have used for Bluesky at Home. This list is always changing, so check back occasionally for any updates.
***This list is primarily for other bloggers and I have designated affiliate links where applicable.
Tailwind for Pinterest and Instagram***
You know the saying, “time is money”? Well, time to me is about spending time with Sweet Shark, friends, hobbies, reading and just me time. And yet, I want to grow my blog’s reach and engagement with my Social Media channels, especially my 2 favorites, Pinterest and Instagram. But let’s face it: Pinning and Posting to IG takes time, although it’s time well spent. But if you had a tool, almost like a Virtual Assistant to help you with Pinterest and Instagram, wouldn’t you hire them? Well, you can. And for pennies. That tool is Tailwind. I discovered Tailwind in the last quarter of 2017, tried the 30~day trial and was hooked. I didn’t give a second thought to signing up. The benefits of saved time and consistency in engagement through Tailwind far outweigh the minimal cost. Like finding the best nail salon or flea market find, I want to share it with you. I urge you to try it because I wouldn’t steer my friends in the wrong direction. Check Tailwind out now. You have nothing to lose, but so much time to gain.
Boardbooster for Pinterest Repinning***
Boardbooster is also a time~saving service for repinning your Pins on Pinterest. You tell it which of your boards you want to REPIN on a daily basis and they do it for you. It’s easy and very inexpensive. If you would like to try it, here is a link.
