I’ve been using Tailwind to get my new Pinterest and Instagram accounts going, and it really has given them a boost already within a short space of time. Tailwind has a scheduler for both platforms so you can set your posts to auto-pilot, and even target the best posting times while you’re at work or asleep. It also offers insights and analytics, and allows you to create your actual pins and posts from within Tailwind.

How some people cope everyday at work, school or home without Evernote, I cannot imagine. I’ve been using it for around 11 years already, and I use it multiple times daily, everyday. Note taking, web clipping, digitising paperwork archives, team collaboration, keeping travel documents at hand, budgeting, sharing notebooks with clients and friends, archiving recipes, indexing stuff: these are just some of the things you can do with it. It’s been a total game changer for me, and it has significantly reduced my paper clutter at home and work. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I have tried competitor products like Notion or Simplenote, but I always wind up staying with Evernote because nothing comes close to its functionality and ease of use.
If you sign up with this referral link, you can try out Evernote for free!
Canva is sweet! If you haven’t tried it yet, you might want to give it a spin. You can use Canva to create a multitude of designs for your CV, blog, website, LinkedIn header, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr and so much more—all for free.
If you sign up to Canva with this referral link, we’ll both earn a Canva Credit to get us each a premium element for free. Win-win!
WP Tasty Pins is a WordPress plugin that allows you to optimise your blog images for Pinterest and SEO. I started using this plugin because I was looking for an easy way to set Pinterest descriptions for my blog’s images while creating the actual blog post.
Tasty Pins is neat because it allows me to not only set the pin descriptions separate from the alt text without having to tweak the HTML code, but it also lets me easily hide Pinterest-specific images from my website page. WP Tasty also has other cool plugins for managing your blog’s links and even recipes.
Let us know in the comments below if you’ve used any of these, and if you liked them as much as I do. I’d love to hear from you!
