Writing can be very intimidating. I have been writing and blogging for over 3 years. I started a blog which failed before I self-hosted and launched this blog. For those of us whose first language is not English, expressing ourselves in English is a skill which we continually improve. Through reading, writing, and reading a bit more, we eventually know how to communicate in English. In addition, we find tools and resources which enable us to perfect our language skills.
Below are some of the products I use while writing and blogging, to make it easier and more efficient.

So many bloggers and writers love my theme and are quick to ask where I bought the theme and how much I got it from. Envato Markets has so many beautiful themes that you can buy at a minimal cost, customise to your liking and create a great site from their elements and themes.
On my most productive weeks, I type around 100, 000 words. Grammarly sends me insights about my writing, usage of unique words and where I need to improve. However, the main reason why I love Grammarly is that they edit your work as you write. They check your spelling, grammar punctuation amongst other things.
I wrote a review about Grammarly here that you might be interested in.

Before launching my site, I read a lot on Pinterest on how to create a blog and took email courses on creating and maintaining blogs and websites. If you’re on Pinterest, I am sure you know of Ana, the founder of The She Approach and her loud Pinterest presence.
I took her course on how to create a blog and although I made some modifications, her course really helped me in my blog research and her blog income reports.
Ana’s course is free. Add it to your blogging resources and you’ll find any other email from her quite helpful as well.
Pinterest is a blogger’s, writer’s, digital marketing best resource when it comes to driving traffic to your site, doing your research or even creating your own dream home (virtually at least). Instead of pinning manually on Pinterest, Tailwind pins for you. All you have to do is schedule pins and Tailwind pins them when your audience is highly engaged. This can even mean 2:00 AM in the morning.
Canva is a graphic design tool which I use to create graphics, Pinterest pins, Flyers, downloadables or customize blog posts into infographics. For you to really benefit from Pinterest traffic, you have to use Canva or some other graphic design tool, and tailwind to pin for you.
