Welcome to the first Friday Finds of 2021!
It’s a new year and we all have new goals. I’ve been really into the idea of rebranding and learning more about blogging and doing more with my blog(s) this year. I’m debating on keeping my blog here on wordpress or going self hosted. I don’t want to lose the community aspect of keeping it here but I do want the freedom of ads and changing the template. It would be cheaper to go self hosted than to pay the $300/year wp is asking for in order to do all that stuff. Freakin yiiiikes.
This week I’ll be sharing a few blogging type of resources so if you’re not into that; I’m sorry lol.
Christine at The Uncorked Librarian talks about how to turn your blog into a business and why it’s important to register it as an LLC.
Kayleigh at Kayleigh Zara has a ton of great blogging resources to choose from, like this one; 35 useful resources for bloggers.
Emily at Love, Em talks about how to raise your blogs DA score! I use to be super obsessed with my DA score but I haven’t thought about it in a while lol.
The Social Blog talks about 5 Instagram Planning Apps.
In addition, The Social Blog also has a useful post about 5 must listen to podcasts for bloggers; this is something I want to start in 2021 — listen to more podcasts!
ICYMI I wrote about the 4 blogging apps I swear by; they definitely make things a lot easier!
