Resources for Writers

I’m in my seventh year of blogging. While I have a lot to learn, I know some of you may just be getting started. Here are some resources I discovered which are helping me become a better writer and blogger.

Making An Awesome Blog

How to Start a Blog – This webcast from Michael Hyatt was super helpful to me.

WordPress – the software my site is built on.

BlueHost – the hosting company where my site lives.

Tribe Theme – the theme I use for this site. From writer extraordinaire, Jeff Goins.

ConvertKit – the service that delivers my posts to my subscribers inbox. Free for up to 2,000 subscribers.

Creating Great Content

Write Room – the simple, distraction-reducing word processor I use to create my posts. Available for Mac OSX and iOS. Syncs to Dropbox.

Unsplash, Pexels, and StockSnap – my favorite photo sites. Free without attribution.

Vimeo – the video platform where I host all of my sermon videos. Cleaner and quieter than YouTube.

Getting Better at Blogging

Michael Hyatt – An incredible resource for all things blogging, marketing and communicating.

Jeff Goins – If you are a writer, you need to be reading Jeff’s stuff.

Buffer – I use Buffer to schedule my Tweets. Their blog has tons of great content about communicating online.

Copyblogger – For years, this site has been a goldmine for people trying to spread their content online.

Problogger – Darren Rowse’s 31 Days to Build a A Better Blog ebook and podcast series are gold for bloggers!

Inspiration for Your Creativity

The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles – Steven Pressfield helps you fight the resistance that holds you back from your greatest work.

Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us – Seth Godin challenges you to find your voice, to find your audience, and to serve others.

On Writing Well – An editor I worked with recently recommended this to me. It’s been supremely helpful!

Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World – Michael Hyatt’s systematic approach to building a platform online.

You Are a Writer – This short book from Jeff Goins helped me own my identity as a writer.

Overcoming Writer’s Block – This piece from prolific, best-selling author Jerry Jenkins gets at the issues behind the issue of writer’s block.

If there are resources that have helped you learn how to communicate better online, I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
