Hey Beautiful People,
How’s your fierce living going?
Blogging is more than merely sharing an opinion on a topic or given product. It can involve styling photos, setting up an editorial calendar, storyboards, and more, all of which gets exhausting. That’s why it’s a major key to find a balance between, say, styling every image and using a stock image (with permission, of course). Organized in no particular order, the following websites often offer free (or very reduced) resources that serve not just bloggers but creatives and businesses with ways to create, streamline, and organize content.
1. App Sumo
App Sumo provides digitally distributed goods and services. For example, you can online courses or a cool gadget for a reduced price. It helps to get on their subscriber list in order to stay updated with their newest deals.
I swear by Canva. This is a platform where you can create graphics for every occasion: social media shares, posters, invitations, business cards, you name it. Within the platform are stock photos available for free or purchase at only $1. I believe designers can actually submit images or other designs to sell on the platform, as well (but don’t quote me on that). I divide my time between creating graphics on Canva or taking a photo for featured images on my blog. It’s a perfect place to create pinnable photos with text overlay and infographics.
Creative Market is a marketplace for fonts, themes, graphics, and more. Every week, they have a different list of freebies available for use. You can see that this week they have fonts, a theme, graphics, and photos available
for free download.
StackSocial sells apps and other digital tools for a reduced price. They currently have a deal on Scrivener, which many writers find as an incredibly useful tool for organizing all their ideas. I discovered Wunderlist–my all time favorite app–and Last Pass in a bundle StackSocial sold a few years back. It pays to visit this site every so often because you’ll find hidden gems, and sometimes they’re free!
Well, that’s all, Folks! I hope these websites help you as much as they’ve helped me.
