The Ultimate List of Online Writing Resources 2022

Writing tools, email marketing platforms, website builders & more


I had to use this title.

You might already be familiar with this list. It’s one of my recent Gumroad freebies. It’s worth sharing here.

If you haven’t seen this list, bookmark it. Refer back to it.

Better yet, get my freebie on Gumroad, because it will get updated frequently there.

Without further ado, here’s my list of online writing resources, everyone should know.

FYI: My favorites are bold-faced. The links marked with * are affiliate links. I get a small commission for referring customers.
