I recommend checking out Making Sense of Cents online course for bloggers, Making Sense of Affiliate MarketingMichelle of Making Sense of Cents earns more than $50,000 a month through|affiliate marketing. In this informative and easy to follow course she shares her exact strategy and tips.

Bluehost is the hosting company that I use for my blog, and I can highly recommend them.  They are one of the top web hosting companies out there, and they have excellent customer service (that is why I have been with them for so long).  This link will give you a deal on hosting for …… a month.

Genesis/StudioPress

 

 

 

 

Genesis by Studiopress is the most popular theme for blogs, and is highly customizable. I use the Genesis framework on my blog, together with a child them from Restored 316.
I have tried many different themes, but I always went back to Genesis, because it was the most easily customizable with so many options.

 


Restored 316

 

 

 

 

Restored 316 have a great choice of feminine WordPress themes, that are perfect child themes to the Genesis framework. Their themes are pretty and easy to customize.
I use the Captivating theme from Restored 316 on my blog.

 


Tailwind


 

Tailwind lets you schedule your Pinterest pins ahead of time, so that you don’t have to do all the work every day. It really is a great time-saver and can significantly
increase your follower and engagement rate on Pinterest.  I have used Tailwind for a few years now, and I couldn’t be without it now.

 


PicMonkey

 

 

 

I absolutely love PicMonkey. It is an affordable graphic design program that is very easy to learn and master. No more high monthly fees paying for expensive graphic design programs.
I design all my Pinterest pins through PicMonkey, and I use it for all my graphics needs several times a week.
