My Favorite Blogging Tools To Make Blog Life Easier

Sometimes it seems like I have tried every blogging tool out there. I’m always looking for something to make my blog-life easier. I want to quickly tell you about the main tools I use to maintain my blog. These are just the top tools and what I am using right now. If you have a question about another tool you’ve heard about, feel free to ask me about it.

My Favorite Blogging Tools To Make Blog Life Easier

My favorite blogging tools

First of all, I use SiteGround for my hosting. They are very affordable and I haven’t had any issues in almost a year. Previously I was with BlueHost and it was problem after problem. Don’t get me started!

Next most important to me in my toolbox is CoSchedule. I use CoSchedule to post my newest blog posts to FaceBook, Twitter, G+ and Pinterest on a schedule automatically after publishing. I would be lost without it. I am a busy mom and I need to automate everything I can.

Next up, I have fallen in love with Tailwind Tribes. It is still in beta testing, and only available by invite. You can join my Mommy Lifestyle Tribe here -> Practical Mommy Lifestyle Tribe. Basically it is a place to share your content with other bloggers who will repin your posts and also find great content from those bloggers for you to use in your pinning schedule.

I use PicMonkey to make images for my blog, included headers and Pinterest images.

For my emails, I use Madmimi. It’s easy, affordable and their customer service is THE best.

I use Gleam and King Sumo for my contests. I purchased King Sumo for the viral sharing capabilities, but honestly, I think I am liking Gleam more.

Sponsored posts

IZEA – this is my go-to for sponsored tweets. Most are about $5 but they can add up.

Clever – this is my newest favorite. Lots of opps and not many hoops to jump through.

Affiliate partners

ShareASale – most affiliate partner websites are very confusing and hard to manage. ShareASale isn’t perfect, but it is the easiest I have seen.

Comission Junction – aka CJ. They have a “content certified” network which helps get you approved for many programs. To get added, they like to see over 10k pageviews per month and consistent, high quality content. Sign up here and use 4679594 as your referral code .

The best products for you and your baby.

Baby monitor

With a baby monitor, you can use your time flexibly, sleep peacefully at night and still know at all times that your baby is doing well.

Nursing pillow

A good breastfeeding pillow has several advantages, because it helps you not only to breastfeed, but also to fall asleep and is also suitable as a nest.

Diaper bags

A diaper bag offers you a lot of storage space, so that you have everything you need for your baby on the go - from the changing pad to the bottle.

Pucksack

A pucksack gives your baby the feeling of security, like in the womb, and thus supports a peaceful and restful sleep.

Bicycle trailer

Bicycle trailers can be used in combination with a baby seat shortly after birth. They are not only safer than child seats but also more comfortable.

Playpen

A playpen can be very practical in everyday life! Which model is suitable for your needs, you can read in my guide.

Baby bed

The first bed accompanies your child for years. Fortunately, there are beds that grow with your child. I have made for you on the search for the best baby beds.

Stroller

A stroller is a worthwhile purchase. But there are the most diverse models on the market. Find out which is the right one.

Radiant heater

Radiant heaters provide your child with the necessary warmth when changing diapers or after bathing.

Extra bed

Side beds are very practical and offer both mother and baby a lot of advantages, because for babies, especially in the first months of life, it is reassuring to be able to sleep next to their parents.
