Want to know the biggest tip for blogging success? It's quite simple really, but heavily overlooked. In order to climb your way to the top of the blogging food chain, all you have to do is one thing...
Indulge in more content than you produce.
It sounds crazy, but you should be consuming content like it's your bread and butter to truly master this blogging game. Why? Blog world is constantly changing and evolving, so to stay ahead of the game you've got to absorb as much knowledge to stay well-rounded as possible.
Given my recent video on Master Classes not really being beneficial, I decided to produce this list of truly valuable resources for bloggers, creatives and entrepreneurs alike. Missed my video? Welp, I'm just going to shamelessly plug this video right here...
But if you're not here for my two cents on master classes and just want the goods, I've got you covered.
Now, without further ado, here's my list of FREE or INEXPENSIVE resources for blogging success! They're divided into categories so you can pin point exactly what you need. All resources listed are from fellow entrepreneurs who have excelled in the respective area they're listed or are articles I've personally used in which I've successfully yielded results...aka, they're stuff is worth you looking into!
Ask yourself this, would I ever steer you wrong? Exactly, I always #KeepItCandid so enough of the chit chat, let's get to the goods.
