Hubspot (http://www.hubspot.com) — WordWrite is a Hubspot partner agency – great site, lots of free videos, webinars, etc., not just on blogging but on the entire field of inbound marketing, including social media and your web site. 2. WordPress (http://www.wordpress.com) — The premier platform (and a free one at that) for hosting blogs. Beefy enough that some small businesses create their entire websites in WordPress. 3. TypePad (http://www.typepad.com) — A good alternative to WordPress preferred by some bloggers. There are others such as Blogger, that are worth a look as well. 4. Google AdWords (https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal) — A terrific free tool originally designed for Google advertisers to pick the best words for their Google ads; works great to pick good keywords for blog posts.

Lorelle on WordPress (http://lorelle.wordpress.com) – The WordPress expert, author of several blogging books, worth reading even if your blog is not a WordPress blog. Miscellaneous 1. CreativeCommons (http://creativecommons.org/) – You need to protect your articles — bad actors will steal your content! 2. Ezine Articles (http://ezinearticles.com/) – Article submission website for PR and authority for your blog posts. 3.
