I want to start by saying: I honestly love my job (like, a lot!). The people I've connected with, the stories I've heard, the articles I've written, the freedom to work from anywhere - it really is a dream come true. Don't get me wrong - it was hard work getting to where I am today (and I am still putting in the hard yards as we continue to grow). But it was, and is, worth every second of my time.
And what I've found through my journey is: whether you're just starting out in this crazy world of blogging, or you're an established blogging superstar, there is always something we can learn. To help with your learning, see below for all of the blogging resources and tools that have helped me grow my business - and hopefully they will help you grow yours too! Enjoy x
THE BLOGGING RESOURCES THAT I CAN'T BE WITHOUT

A fantastic, reasonably priced course that got me to where I am today (honestly, Sharon is the queen when it comes to SEO and affiliate marketing!).

WORK WONDERS FOR YOUR BLOG
These wonderful tools will make your blog user-friendly. Whether it be compressing your images or providing ways for readers to easily share your content; these handy add-ons will take your website to the next level!
Compress PDFs: You don't want your files being too big, otherwise load speed for your page will increase. I came across SmallPDF when searching for a way to decrease the size of my files, and it's fantastic! I'm not a paying customer (which means I can only do so many every hour), but it works for me. There is an option to sign up if you wish. Click here to check it out and/or learn more.
