Tailwind Review

In my honest “newbie” opinion Tailwind has made pinning, and posting to Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram a breeze. I was never really into social media and I still prefer to live life away from the screens. However, I wouldn’t be without it since starting my homeschooling blog. It has become an indispensable tool!! 

I am able to connect with other like minded creators and share my content not only on my various social media platforms but also within my Tailwind Tribes.

If this sounds like it might be for you then come over and take Tailwind for a test drive. I started with the 30 day free trial and havenʻt left. Just click the link to your left and check out what all the hype is about!

Graphic design templates sized just for social. Take PicMonkey's ad-vice.

PicMonkey Review

*** Disclaimer- I have only been learning to use this product since the end of July 2018. ***

Okay, so here is my honest review of PicMonkey thus far. I love the features and the price is reasonable for someone like me. I have been able to produce various types of media for my blog and social media posts. However, I did get help through a course I purchased from another business. If not for the information and guidance it would have been slightly difficult, but not impossible to figure out. Like with anything new there’s a learning curve, so with that said I’m still learning the tricks of the trade.

Now on to the parts that I don’t care for, and there aren’t many. My main gripe is that it’s glitchy sometimes. Like when I try to open the “collage” or “template” features; it will act like its opening then take me back to the home page. Uhhh….what happened? Or when I’m trying to save my work it takes forever and a day. This maybe because my internet connection is on the slow side, so take this with a grain of salt. Like I stated above, still new to this.

Overall, I’ve been able to use it regularly to do the basic things I use it for. Not sure for other purposes, but I’ve already paid for it so I’m gonna continue to use it and hopefully get better at it. If not, I’ll be sure to update you if I find something else that works better.

That’s all for now folks, hope this helps!

Aloha & Blessings!

Siteground Review

My reviews arenʻt going to be an exhaustive in depth “tech savvy” insight to these programs. Iʻm not a computer programing wiz-kid so youʻre not going to find the usual lingo in this review.

All I know is that Siteground has and still does what I need it to do. Iʻve never had an episode where it was off-line. I get courtesy emails, that let me know my site has been scanned and is clean. I know thereʻs more but I donʻt fully understand it, so Iʻm not going to try and explain it.

In the end I really have no complaints. I would absolutely recommend Siteground for anyone who is just starting out. This is the first website/blog that Iʻve ever built, but with Siteground Iʻm confident that I can concentrate on my work while they take care of the web-hosting. 

As a new blogging Mama Iʻve found Elemetor to be an amazing resource for my limited know-how. I would absolutely recommend this page builder for anyone of any skill level. I still have much more to learn and they keep adding new tools into the mix. I canʻt wait to learn and implement them as I continue to blog. Thatʻs all for now folks. Sorry that my review wasn’t more extensive, but as Iʻve mentioned before Iʻm not too tech-savvy when it comes to these things. I just know that itʻs working for me and Iʻm glad to have this helpful tool in my hands. All the best!!
