Resources & Handy Links

Hard at work. Life is good!

Here’s a page of useful links to travel and business resources that we are partnered with. I’ve separated them out into two groups. The first group are those that we’ve used personally and love plus those that have been recommended by trusted family and friends. I have also placed a link to reviews of some of the websites that we’ve been impressed with and will continue to complete the whole list as time permits. Any feedback you have on these organisations would be appreciated to round out these reviews.

Now that's what I call working!

For the “others” I have provided Trust Pilot Scores where they are available. Not every website is rated however. That’s not such a bad thing as people will usually give a bad review on these sites before they will give a good one. The closer to 10 the score is the better the reviews. Hope you find it useful. Have a great trip.

Note that using these links to complete your travel purchases will result in the company giving us a small commission BUT will not cost you any extra. The funds they pay us are part of their overall marketing budget and it just happens that a little bit goes to us rather than another advertiser. Each little bit helps to keep us on the road. A full explanation is found in this post.

It always pays to shop around. Check at least two online booking systems as well as see your travel agent.

I’m a big believer that if you can’t afford travel insurance you can’t afford to travel. Check out our post on why we believe you should always have travel Insurance HERE

Hootsuite

I’ve been using the FREE version of Hootsuite for a while now because it makes managing multiple social media accounts a lot easier. With the addition of a third website and associated social media accounts, I’ve gone to the Pro version. Honestly, for less than $10/month, it’s a bargain.  The FREE version is perfectly adequate for a one-man band with only a few social media channels. But since they’ve got a 30-day FREE trial for the Pro version, you can try out all the bells and whistles and then cancel if you feel you don’t need it.

Grammarly

Grammarly has saved my bacon more than once. The most helpful features include grammar checking, sentence structure, and vocabulary enhancements, but it has a plagiarism checker too. It also has settings for different styles of writing. You use different language for academic writing to a blog post right? Grammarly helps out with this. It’s not perfect, but it is pretty dang good. There’s a FREE version. The Chrome extension monitors all your online writing, and it integrates with Word and Windows.

      • Rent a Web – Can’t afford a professional website. Check these guys out. From $12/month

Note: I do not receive any payment for this post (or any others on the site for that matter!). I do receive a small amount of money by allowing advertisements on the site and any purchases made through those links.
