17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

17 Top Tools for Making Money Blogging (That Won’t Give You a Tech Headache!)

  I’m all about keeping things simple when it comes to my blog and business.   In other words, why take 10 steps when 3 will do? Why use a super-confusing software when a simple one will get the job done?   Since starting Blog Beautifully, I’ve tested out dozens of different tools, programs, and platforms for bloggers and online business owners. Some I instantly fell in love with, and some – not so much.   In this post, I’m talking about the tools that “stuck”; the ones that are now so ingrained in the day-to-day management of my blog and business, that things would undoubtedly fall apart without them.   These 17 tools made the cut because:   a) They’re easy to use once you master the learning curve b) They […]

  On my blog I’ve shared 40+ tips for Pinterest epicness, my hack for finding the perfect keywords to use on Pinterest, and even 7 ways to get more re-pins on Pinterest.

The 4 Best Twitter Tools to Grow & Automate Your Account

The 4 Best Twitter Tools to Grow & Automate Your Account

  When I first launched my blog and started creating social profiles for it, I scrambled to remember the password I set for the several Twitter accounts I’ve created over the years.   Seeing as I rarely frequented Twitter as a teen in high school or even in college, I failed at that attempt and quickly found myself creating another brand spanking new Twitter profile – yippee! (Can you sense my sarcasm?)   Not-so-necessary-confession: I’m not the biggest fan of Twitter.   I’m pretty open about my distaste for Twitter because I think it’s important for bloggers to recognize that every social media platform isn’t going to be your best friend. It certainly hasn’t been that way for me, at least.   As with most things in life, you’ll like […]

7 Foolproof Ways to Get More Re-pins on Pinterest (Even as a Beginner!)

  One of my favorite things about Pinterest is that it’s a platform based on sharing. You design a gorgeous pin, share it to a few group boards, and BOOM. Your pin gets re-pinned by hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of people (said in my best Dr. Evil voice).   But wait a minute, hold up there. Maybe this isn’t exactly how things usually go down for you…   Ever wish you could crack the code and figure out how to get THOUSANDS of people re-pinning your pins?   If so, you’re not alone! I recently sent out a survey to my mailing list asking for feedback before I created my newest program, Pageviews from Pinterest. And you know what? Over 70% of respondents said they were struggling with re-pins and couldn’t […]
