Blogging Tools We Use and Love
We are often asked, “how do you do that?” by other bloggers. Well, nothing we do is magic—we just know how to find a tool to do whatever it is we need.
InMotion Hosting is our host. We love InMotion, and it is, by far better than the host the other bloggers are trying to sell you (**cough** BlueHost). InMotion is super easy to use, has walkthroughs for absolutely anything you want to do, and their customer service is phenomenal! They have over 99% uptime and fast servers, too.
We don’t know everything, so we take blogging courses all the time. These are the best we’ve found so far:
- Pinterest Strategy Master Plan
- Genius Blogger’s Toolkit (it’s only available once a year)

Clothing We Actually Wear
We are very picky about our clothing, and we are major bargain hunters. This is a list of our favorite online places to shop for work clothes. We also shop at Ross and TJMaxx, but their online shopping isn’t great. We are not affiliates for any of these shops. We just love to shop there:
- Bealls Florida
- Torrid (check out their blouses)
- GwynnieBee (It’s a rental service, but we buy clothes from them, too)
