My Favorite Blogging Resources

Pretty Link – Allows you to make a short and sweet link using your domain name

Magic Action Box – Helps you create powerful call to actions and signup forms. I use it for the email subscription in the sidebar.

WordPress.org – The foundation my blog is built on. Is there anything better for building a blog than WordPress? I haven’t found anything that compares.

Wordle.net – A great tool that allows you to create “word clouds.” You will see me use this on my monthly recap blog posts.

Share-A-Holic – Makes sharing blog posts with social media much easier. This is used at the end of every blog post. They also have a You May Also Like feature that shows related posts a reader may be interested in.

MailChimp – This is the email service I use to send out my newest blog posts. It’s a great service and free for your first 2,000 subscribers.

Creative Commons Search – Here’s where I find free pictures to use on my blog. You’ll find a wealth of images that you can use for a variety of different things. Just be sure to read the licensing agreements.

My Favorite “Toys”

Samsung Galaxy S4 – Far and away the best phone I’ve ever owned. It’s running the Android operating system and does everything I need it to. The Galaxy S4 is fast, sleek, and ready when I need it to be.

Syma S107 Remote Controlled Helicopter – When it’s time to kick back and relax, I love flying this toy helicopter around the house. It’s cheap and easy to fly.

Epson XP-850 Wireless Printer – I recently picked this up for my home office and have fallen in love with it’s ease of use and print quality. To top it off, it also has scanning, copying, and fax capabilities.

Roku 3 Internet Media Streaming Player – While I have the Roku 2 XS, the 3 is the newest iteration of this great device. My Roku device is able to stream video and audio to my home entertainment center and allowed me to cut cable out of our lives.
