Resources and Favorite Tools

This is a page of Pinterest resources that I use to manage my Pinterest and run my two blogs, and my other website Below are tools I use to help select, produce, and distribute content as well as manage the websites.

Camtasia by TechSmith

We use Camtasia to record screenshare videos and edit videos that live on YouTube and on the website. We used to use Corel Video Pro but found Camtasia is easier to use with more features.


We use SEMRush to track the health of the websites, effectiveness of website posts, and what is trending online. SEMRush helps us determine what content readers liked the most and how they interact with it. SEMRush works great for online search keyword analysis, search engine optimization campaigns (SEO), and competitor analysis.


We use Grammarly to spell and grammar check blog posts, web pages, eBooks, and all written material. We even used it to work on full length books including science fiction! Grammarly Pro can really up your writing game. Try it for free!



We use AWeber to collect email addresses and send messages to opted-in subscribers. AWeber emails are sent in automated campaigns so subscribers can get updates in a weekly email and on Facebook. We have tried many major email services and found it is better than the competition. AWeber has excellent phone, email and chat customer support. Perfect for anyone starting out.


We use WordPress to power all our websites. It’s a free content management system that is easy to use. We have several WordPress plugins running like Yoast SEO, Schema, Contact Form 7 and AMP that make WordPress better. Our WordPress has an integration with Pinterest to automatically save new posts as Pinterest Pins.
