Resources – Recommended Tools for You

Welcome to BloggingPals Resources section, a curated list of the tools and websites I use and recommend for building and optimizing your blog. I use every one of these tools. They are crucial for running BloggingPals.

Prior to delving into the awesome resources I use, trust, and recommend… an important disclosure:

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a small commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. On the contrary, I’ve worked out deals with these affiliates to give you special discounts. Please understand that I recommend these tools because I use them to smoothly run this blog, not because of the small commission I make. Please don’t purchase these products unless you feel they can add value to you as a blogger.

This blog is hosted on Bluehost. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new blog up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation.

Expansion is never a problem — You can use your Bluehost account to host an unlimited number of blogs. Also, they provide superb customer service via phone, chat, or e-mail.

I highly recommend using Bluehost for your first blog, and you can get started now for less than $4 a month!

Images are an integral part of every blog. You use them on your home page, in your blog posts, and all throughout your blog.

The problem is that many of them need to be edited in order to get the best use out of them and that’s where Canva steps in.

Alternative image editing software can cost hundreds or even thousands. while good ole Canva is absolutely free!
