Blogging Resources

Best Free Blogging Software


We’d be silly to start off a list of blogging resources without first talking about the most popular blogging software on the Internet.

WordPress.org (which is different from WordPress.com) powers over 30% of the sites on the Internet.

That’s an insane number.

So why is it so successful?

Because it’s been around the longest and it has the largest ecosystem of plugins, themes, and developers.

WordPress can take a minute to get used to and learn, but once you do, you’ll see how amazing it is.

Best Free WordPress Theme


While the default themes that come with WordPress are great, our theme of choice is GeneratePress.

It comes in both a free version which is great, but we prefer the Premium version which is only $49.95 and you can use it on an unlimited number of sites.

We currently use it on over 30 WordPress-powered sites.

Best Free Analytics Software

Google Analytics

The big Daddy of analytics software, Google Analytics is the default analytics that ad networks and website buyers look at.

For this reasons, it makes sense to always have it on any of your blogs, even if you do wish to also use analytics from other providers.

Best Free Guide to Blogging

The Blog Simple Guide

And if we’re going to do that we might as well start with our very own Blog Simple Guide.

This guide was created to show you a new way to approach blogging. While getting a ton of page views is always fun, it also takes a lot of time.

Does that mean you need to wait forever before you can start making money with your blog?

Most definitely not.

Instead, you should start thinking about how you can make money with your blog from day 1.

The Blog Simple Guide shows you our method for how to do that.
