Essential Business Blogging Tools

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 business 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 have a choice.  You can build it the hard way, by making and learning from your own mistakes.  This is often painful and expensive, two words you should hate.  Two words you should love are “painless and cheap” which describes the second way you can learn to build a successful business blog.  Learning from other people’s experience can indeed be “painless and cheap.”

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

I tell my clients that I’m covered with the scars from 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..
