Sights Better Seen contains some affiliate links, and if you click one I may receive some commission (at no extra cost to you). Sights Better Seen is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. But don’t worry, I only recommend products/things I actually like and use. 🙂
TRAVEL (& DIGITAL NOMAD) RESOURCESThese are the things I use and love that make my travels easier and more enjoyable.
I love my AWAY suitcase and have had it since 2019, when I first started my digital nomad journey. It’s been with me through 384748 airports and 9347383 road trips without issue. And yes, those are indeed exact numbers. Plus, they have a lifetime warranty!

BLOGGING RESOURCESWant to start a blog? Great! Here’s a list of my fave things.
HOSTING & DOMAIN
- Siteground Hosting for my site – it’s been fast & I haven’t had any problems
- 17th Avenue Designs has beautiful, minimalist themes that’ll make your site look professional and streamlined. Mine is the ‘Vivienne’ theme and I absolutely love it. You can pay extra to have them implement it for you, or you can do it yourself (I personally thought it was easy enough to follow their directions and do it myself). They also have great customer service that emails you back quickly.
SEO (SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION)
- Make Traffic Happen ebook for SEO. I also just finished reading Revive Old Content, which I was originally on the fence about purchasing but am so glad I did! I learned so much more about using Google Analytics to help me determine the best keywords and get more traffic to my old posts.
- Keysearch to assist in keyword search. I was just using Google before, but Keysearch actually tells me the search volume for different keywords. This allows me to pick one with a higher search volume that less people have written about (meaning, less competition!)
- Tailwind to schedule Pinterest posts in advance
- Pinterest for Creatives course from Molly Ho
- Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing helps you understand how to make money with, well, affiliate marketing!
