Resource Roundup #1

This resource roundup focuses on Instagram hashtags, tax season and tools for your blogging business. 

Welcome to the first Resource Roundup on WCBC!

In between cooking and photographing, I read a lot of blog and business posts on the Internet. There is a wealth of information out there, for free, and I have been bookmarking and pinning all of it for months.

So you can use your time planning fashion shoots, recipes or Chicago dining adventures, I am going to start sharing all of my finds here with you.
