The following is a compilation of my favorite, most trusted blogging resources, all of which I use and believe in one hundred and ten percent!  Whether you’re just beginning your blogging journey or have been pounding the keys for a while, you will find valuable nuggets in this list of 5 insanely awesome resources for your blogging success.

This list covers two blogging courses, one social media course, one blog design course, and one  FREE course on setting up a blog with WordPress.  So why are you still reading this mumbo jumbo?  Let’s get crack-a-lackin’!

1.  Elite Blog Acadamy

I can’t tell you how much I love Ruth Soukup and EBA.  EBA was a game changer for me in that I designed my blogging monetization after the pattern set forth in the course.  But even more than that, from creating Perfect Pinterest Pins, to establishing SMART goals, to creating awesome content, this course is a one-stop-shop for everything you need to get your blog focused and on the road to creating a healthy income for your family.



Many of today’s successful bloggers are graduates of Elite Blogger Acadamy:

Gina Horkey  – Horkey Handbook {dot} com

Tasha Agruso – Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body {dot} com

Rosemary from The Busy Budgeter {dot} com

And many more successful bloggers I don’t have time to tell you about!

Elite Blogger Acadamy opens only once per year, but in the meantime, I’m happy to offer you this freebie that will not only incite blog growth, but will put you on the waiting list for when EBA opens in 2017!  While you’re waiting, you’ll receive Ruth’s invaluable newsletter full of tricks of the trade–one I can’t wait to open each week!

2.  Pinterest in 21

A 21 day challenge to effectively grow your Pinterest presence.


Arabah Joy is the mastermind behind this fabulous, easy-to-implement ecourse.


In Pinterest in 21, you’ll receive daily videos with action steps for effectively using Pinterest. One thing I’m NOT into is info overload.


This is about practical, actionable steps for mastering Pinterest from the ground up.  ~Arabah Joy

This course effectively grew my own Pinterest strategy massively!  Because of PN21, Pinterest is now my highest traffic referral site, bringing thousands of unique visitors to my site each month!

You won’t regret this investment.  But hurry – it’s only $49.00 – and the price will raise SOON!


3.  Strategies Worth Sharing

Strategies worth sharing is an invaluable ebook for insight into how Facebook works.  If you’ve ever wondered how some bloggers seem to explode their Facebook growth, look no further than this ebook.  Brittany, from Equipping Godly Women, has got the down low on how to make Facebook work for you, and I personally love her book and how she teaches!

Within one week of implementing just a few of her strategies my total reach was up 597%, and the number of people engaged had already climbed to 444%!

Before Strategies Worth Sharing, I rarely had more than a couple interactions per post – now, not only are people interacting, but they’re commenting and sharing, and my Facebook page membership is steadily climbing!

Brittany keeps it real with down-to-earth explanations for how Facebook works, and solid, concrete ideas for not only getting viewers to interact and share posts, but to drive traffic to the owner’s blog. This easy-to-read book is the most affordable, valuable tool I’ve found for cracking the Facebook code. I highly recommend it!
