These are the tools, courses, and resources that I believe are fundamental and vital to my success in the online space. I know that it can be overwhelming trying to decide who, what, and where to go for help…I hope this might give you a good starting point for some resources to trust, for yourself.
Where possible, I’ve included codes and discounts that I’ve acquired from each company.
Big Scoots Hosting
We have been happy with this hosting company for quite some time with our large Food Blog. NellieBellie has heavy online traffic and, with over 900 image-heavy posts, huge files and info. Big Scoots has handled it well and kept us up with little problems. And, thankfully, with a good price.

Tailwind App is a HUGE help, to us. We use it to schedule the mass amount of pins that come from the NellieBellie site. We have been able to automate hundreds of pins each week and keep them optimized to the best times for our boards.
Bonus…Tailwind has an Instagram feature that allows scheduling of IG posts.
We use the Tailwind Pro with unlimited everything. But, there are smaller versions that are still very powerful.
I highly recommend getting your Pinterest automated and optimized…it is vital to your marketing plan!
I use Creative Market quite often to grab fonts, templates, graphics, and visuals to use for our sites and social media. It is an efficient way of getting pretty graphics without hiring or spending alot of time doing it ourselves.
