blogging resources + other useful stuff!
We often get asked about the blogging resources and equipment we use to run the blog; everything from what camera I use to the subscriptions keeps us ticking over. My idea was to make it easier for everyone by creating this list of items we recommend for blogging, social media, video creation and photography. Things like where we host our email list to how we manage all the social media platforms from one place.
There are still items to be added, I’m sure, and I’ll keep adding them to the list as I think of them. If there is something you need for your blogging or social media journey, let us know, and we’ll let you know what we use, or seek out a recommendation from a fellow blogger. Sounds like a plan, right?
It is important to note that I’ve included affiliate links for many of the items listed here. But, in particular, for the electronics and cameras, I’ve made sure to add the full name so you can copy it and search the platform of your choice to purchase. If you choose to purchase using our links, we appreciate your support to keep the blogging ticking over.
