Blogging Resources

Blogging resources? No problem. There are a gazillion different websites out there and everybody has an opinion. Surround yourself with inspiration and resources, but blog YOUR way. Over the past 1.5 years, I've scrolled through enough posts to make my index finger permanently numb. Despite the lack of feeling or sensation, I'd say I've been victorious in my efforts. The following posts and sites are fabulous references. Buckle up buttercup, this list is long.

I realize this list of helpful tidbits is lengthy, but it's meant to be revisited. I could touch on each and every topic myself, but there's really no need to reinvent the wheel. This is the sort of list I would have liked to stumble upon when I started blogging. I consider this compilation of sites and articles bookmark worthy. I hope you find it handy! Later this week, I'll share some of the lessons I've learned from blogging and the goals I've set for this year.

Now, what did I miss? What are your go-to blogging resources?
