When you’re working online, you need the right tools to survive. Too many websites fail because they don’t have a plan for success or they don’t have the resources they so desperately need. Here are a few blogging tools that are sure to help you on your journey. This one is dedicated to my blogging friends.
1. Thesis Theme for WordPress
The Thesis Theme for WordPress is absolutely my favorite blogging theme. It is easy to customize the appearance and inner-workings of your website. In addition, there is a lot of support for this theme on the web. A simple Google search will produce incredible amounts of information on how you can customize Thesis.
Another nice thing about Thesis: the developers actually update it to offer ever-increasing functionality. This is rare. It’s well worth the money to get the Thesis theme if you are a serious blogger.
You probably already already have FaceBook. That’s great! But do you have a page for your online business? Having a Facebook page will pull many people into the conversation you’re trying to generate.
Another thing I do is link my articles to auto-publish on Facebook when they are posted. This is an easy way to let others know that you have new content available!
3. Google AdSense
Google AdSense can be a huge money maker. The only problem with it is that you have to customize is and revise it over time so that inappropriate ads don’t show up. The last thing you want to do is lower credibility of your website.
I’m currently looking for ways to increase relevant ads through Google AdSense. Do you have any suggestions?
There you have it. Those are my top 3 blogging tools for your website. How well have you implemented each? Meet us in the comments and let’s discuss some ways we can better use these tools!
