Over several years of working with technology, basic graphic design, writing, and blogging, I’ve accumulated some of the best blogging resources, technology and graphics tools, and writing resources in the industry that make my life much easier and way more fun. I’m listing them below with a link (some are affiliates, meaning I will make a small percentage if you click through and purchase.)
Also included will be a quick review of each tool so you can determine if it’s something that might help you. Not all of them will. My wish is that one or more of these resources may inspire you to create something new and of value, because I know there is a creation in your heart waiting to come out!
