I am going to share some of the tools I use and some I know about to help you on your blogging journey.

To Pay Or Not To Pay

As entrepreneurs we do have to put out a lot of money to get our learning and business going. I will tell you most digital tools have a FREE version. You can get some thing like Canva. This design tool will help you with the images you will need for your blog. There is a FREE version however if you are serious about blogging you may want to upgrade.

So, usually when we think of graphics we visualize the pretty square images. However video is another way to get images in your blog.

Don’t panic! I know that may seem a little daunting especially if you are pretty brand new to being a online entrepreneur. I know when I was learning it scared me.

To help you see how easy it is to put a video in your blog, here is the video that Hilary and I did on this very subject, Design Tools for the Digital Entrepreneur.

You can put a video in or some graphics you created from Canva. It will break up the text and that will help keep people interested in continuing to read on.

The many different design tools that can be used for the digital space. You can use any of them that is easiest and fun.

Some other tools are Crello, Design Wizard, Pic Monkey to name a few. All tools have a FREE program with upgrades.

Your world can open up to so many options. You have to decide what one you like and works best for you.

Don’t forget they all will have tutorials to help you learn how to use their product. Usually they are bite size videos. So it is not overwhelming for you to learn.

All of the social graphics really make your visual presence in the digital space much more attractive.

      Hi Deb, I was not sure if this was your newest post from today, but this is what it linked to. I have tried Canva, but find that I get irritated with it. I don’t find it quite as user friendly, so I think I might check out some other options that you mentioned.

      • Deb Andrews

        Hi Trine, Thank you for commenting. That I believe why there are several different options on so many different things. People like what they like. However if someone is new then this gives them a place to start and check it out. Go for it and see what might fit you better. Happy New Year.
