Resources

Evernote – This completely changed my life. This resource enables users to clip anything from the web, easily organize notes and notebooks, scan images, and much more.

Scrivener – Though I do not use this personally, I have used it and agree that it is an amazing tool for authors. If you feel like you have so many article or scene ideas to the point where you have a hard time organizing them then Scrivener is a game changer.

Fiverr.com – I remember thinking to myself that outsourcing projects wasn’t an option until I ran a business that earned some consistent revenue. Let me set the record straight. I was wrong. With Virtual Assistants willing to complete 3 hours worth of work for $5, there is pretty much nothing you can’t complete. I have a large portion of my editing complete via Fiverr.

Elance.com – An alternative to Fiverr.com, this is great because it is a bit easier to customize your job postings. It is a bit more expensive though.

Canva.com – I use this site to design images on this blog, some of my book covers, and much more. User friendly, quick and simple. Can’t beat it.

Leaveworkbehind.com – If you haven’t noticed by now, I enjoy a simple design that focuses on high quality content and minimal distractions. I modeled my site after this site. In addition, the resources provided are fantastic, particularly if you’re interested in becoming a freelance writer.

Bluehost.com – For those of you who want to start a blog Bluehost.com is the way to go. Great customer service and very reasonable price.
