When you’re a writer, blogging inevitably comes across your path at some point. It’s always something we “should be doing,” and there are a million opinions about what to blog about. Do you blog about writing? Cooking? Do book reviews?
I’ve been blogging since 2007, and I’m going to point you to some of the best resources I’ve found.
Fabulous Blogging – www.fabulousblogging.com
This blog has it all. What you should be writing, how to present it, how to get it out there, and how to make a blog. Can’t recommend this site highly enough; I spend days lost in the archives.
Kristen Lamb’s Blog – warriorwriters.wordpress.com
This site not only offers spot-on writing tips but has easily become the writer’s go-to for blogging advice.
Hubspot’s Blog Topic Generator – hubspot.com/blog-topic-generator
Give this site 3 nouns and it will spit out 7 titles to help you decide what to write. Pretty catchy, SEO empowered titles, as well.
Pixabay – pixabay.com
At this point, we all know pictures are crucial to blogging. With the increased use of pinterest to allow others to share your content, you want a solid, professional image. You will find them, free, on this site.
Canva – canva.com
I use this site all the time. Speaking of images, don’t just grab an image, take it over to Canva.com and add your title, name, even your twitter handle or url. Canva can help you quickly make graphics for your site without paying a dime. (I made this graphic with Canva in less than five minutes.)
