All of us bloggers want a beautiful blog that carefully reflects our personality, one of the best ways to tailor the look and design of your website is to be an expert in code so that you can carefully tweak its appearance. However, there is one downside to this – we don’t all have the time to learn everything about coding!
Thankfully, all is not lost, and you can still create a pretty blog.
You just need to use the following fantastic blogging resources and tools.
There are two main competitors when it comes to blog hosting sites: WordPress and Squarespace. They both have their various pros and cons. When you create your Squarespace account, you will find that there are lots of different templates to help you design your site. They are very easy to use, even for internet novices, and you will be able to greatly change the overall look of your site with ease.
Next, once you have your site pretty much ready to go, you need to find some royalty free images to make it look even better. EyeEm is the place to look. You will find a huge library of images that you can download and use on your website. One of the great things about EyeEm is that it has thousands of users who regularly upload their photographs. So you know that every time you log on, you will find a lot of new images to choose from!
If you want to try and make some extra money from your blog, you will need to make it look as professional as possible. And the first step to doing that is to create a logo. Don’t worry; you don’t have to hire an expensive graphic designer. You can simply use the tools on Canva to make a bespoke logo. Using templates and simple tools, you can create a logo that reflects you and your blog.
Don’t trust yourself with your own graphic design? No worries; simply create an account on the 99Balloons website, and you can then connect to a professional graphic designer who will help you realize your design dreams. 99balloons offer their graphic designers at very affordable prices so you might be very surprised to find out how little you have to pay for this great service. It certainly works out cheaper than hiring a designer directly!
Now that you have your blog all set up and looking good, you need a newsletter as it will help you keep in touch with your followers. Plus, newsletters are a great marketing tool. MailChimp is a great platform that helps you quickly create gorgeous newsletters that subscribers will look forward to reading! What’s more, it’s free to sign up and start sending emails!
