I see more and more people on Instagram getting really creative with their photography. I personally like photo editing and I don’t see anything wrong with it. Well, what I mean is it’s ok to enhance some colours, correct exposure, increase/decrease highlights and shadows.

Here is the list of resources and tools I use for travel planning, photography, maintaining and monetizing my websites and social accounts. When I first started blogging, I used free platforms and that was enough. Just because I always wanted more I have never stopped discovering and learning about new opportunities and services that make my life a lot easier.
