Can you raise your hand if you get sick & tired of having to Google everything that you’re looking for all of the time?
I’m jumping up & down & raising my hand. It gets annoying.
To save yourself both time & a headache, I’ve compiled what I’m calling the ultimate resource page.
Here you’ll find the best resources related to:
I have tried every single one of these products & resources. And I can’t get enough of them.

Creative Online Courses
Sometimes it’s easier to grasp a concept when you’re watching someone else do it. That way you can visually see what you’re doing step by step.
The following courses & programs are simply amazing!
Lets start with BluPrint. This one site has just about every creative course that you can think of! For just about $8 a month you get access to unlimited videos from the experts.
I’ve learned how to decorate cakes, work with wood, gardening, even yoga on here. You can start by checking out these free classes.
Next up is CreativeLive. This one is similar to BluPrint except it offers live classes as well as out of the box classes. Such as how to successfully build an Etsy shop or how to master people skills.
CreativeLive also offers super in-depth classes on hundreds of topics ranging from photography to metal working.
You can try it by checking out these free classes here.
Brit & Co is more specialized into specific art classes & design. If you want to learn how to learn about watercolor, hand lettering, or even how to create chalk art, then this one is for you. You have hundreds of options to choose from.
Although you don’t always need supplies on your meditation journey, I found these to help me on mine. I don’t think that my journey into meditation would have been as successful without them.
Ok, I’m not a blogger that blogs about blogging. Not by a long shot. However, I do get asked what resources that I use & what got me started. So I’ve listed them below for you.
There are thousands, probably millions of sites online that talk about blogging & blogging resources. I know because I was overwhelmed by all of it when I first started.
I signed up for stuff, tried tons of different options, & then end result was a waste of a ton of time & money.
What a lot of bloggers (even the big names) fail to mention, is the amount of hard work goes into blogging. It’s not a get rich quick scheme. And not every resource is the best fit for you.
For my website hosting, I use Siteground. Here are a few key points that make them the best in my eyes:
- truly helpful around the clock customer service
- affordable pricing
- fast hosting speed
- very user friendly
Email Service Provider
I’ve tried a few email service providers (ESP’s). There are tons of free ones & then there are the ones that you pay for.
They all have their pros & cons but I fell in love with ConvertKit.
The customer service, easy setup, & overall experience is better than the free ones. But it can be costly for some people who are just getting started.
ConvertKit is $29 a month for your first 1,000 subscribers then goes up from there. Although, that may seem expensive there are some others that are even more expensive.
Take your time & truly look to see what would work best for you. Here’s a list of some of the email service providers that you can use.
This one is huge! You can’t (well you can but I don’t suggest it) just jump into the blogging world blindly.
And just like with anything else, there’s tons of options for you to choose from. And some are advertised more than others. But beware, that doesn’t always make them better.
Hands down, I’ve found that Dare To Conquer (DTC) is the most comprehensive “school” out there. I call it a school because DTC is filled to the brim with courses & resources related to blogging.
Here are just some of the courses available:
- Affiliate marketing
- How to get set up
- Plus, you get access to a community of over 600 other helpful bloggers!!!
DTC is run by Paul Scrivens, he runs several other blogs in different niches & he’s made them all successful. And he’s amazing. He genuinely wants to help you succeed but he won’t hold back the punches. If you ask him something (because he’s truly there to talk to you, not hiding on a island) don’t expect him to sugarcoat the answer.
You can try out DTC with some free, yes free, bootcamps!
The bootcamps are:
