Links I’m Loving – Blogging Tips

I have a confession to make.

I really like lists. 

As in, sometimes I create a list of lists that I can make.  And while this might not seem like a good thing, the reality is that my affinity for lists has helped make me a very organized person.  So a couple of months ago when I decided to take this “blogging thing” seriously, I started keeping a list of blogging resources that were either really helpful or that I wanted to save for later because I knew they would be helpful down the road.

And then I got to thinking…if my purpose with this blog is to inspire you to try new things then I should be sharing this list with you so that you can check out new blogs and new resources!

  1. Great resource! I especially like the links in the monetizing and the “additional” sections. I’m going through and opening them all, and bookmarking a bunch!

  2. I love this list–very helpful! One of the things I love to do is find and curate resources–it’s something I’m working on for my blog right now. This is a great resource and I love the organization (disorganized lists overwhelm me!). Thanks so much for sharing.

    Visiting from #sitssharefest today.

  3. This is a wonderful compilation of resources. I appreciate when bloggers share information on what they learn. That is what makes all of us a community 🙂 More power to your blogging! I really enjoyed this post!

    Best,
    Cara

  4. Thank you so much for this post. I’m a brand new blogger and the amount of information is overwhelming. I really appreciate you listing everything in one place.

  6. I love your list and recognize a lot of names on here and some new ones I want to check out and THEN… I notice that my post for SITS Girls is there! How cool is that! 🙂

  7. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
