blogging toolsWelcome to the Essential Blogging Tools page.

As in most things in life, there’s an easy way of doing things – and a hard way.

Building a successful blog is no exception.

It’s said that wisdom is learning from the mistakes someone else makes.

When it comes to building a blog – you can build it the hard way – by making your own mistakes – or you can learn from other people’s hard won experience.

Personally, I prefer learning from other people’s mistakes.  Unfortunately, I’m usually the one who’s racing out ahead of everyone else and as a result… well… I end up making more than my fair share of “discoveries”.

I often tell my clients that I’m covered with the scars from multiple 3rd degree burns so THEY don’t have to suffer a similar fate.

It’s in this spirit that I’m offering a selection of  essential blogging tools.

Some of these essential blogging tools are free – others are offered at a small fee.  Without exception every single resource here was created to help a client with their blog..
