AD – affiliate links highlighted with *. I’ve never written a Black Friday blog post before in my six years of blogging (7 years in January!), but there’s a first time for everything.
I have mixed feelings about it: I’m definitely not a fan of mindless consumerism, and I care about the planet! However, for many people (myself included), Black Friday is the only time I can afford to buy Christmas presents. It really highlights how huge companies can really mark down their prices and still make a profit, and overvalue the ‘worth’ of the original prices. Please be mindful with your shopping, support local businesses and shop ethically where possible.
With that said, sometimes you just can’t shop ethical. Especially when it comes to tech equipment like cameras and phones. Do you really need the latest phone? If you need a new one, could you buy it second-hand or refurbished instead? Think about it properly before spending. I recommend checking out Fairphone, they’re the most ethical on the market.
Today’s blog post is a list of Black Friday deals for bloggers. Whether you’re in need of some new tech, a WordPress theme, or want to up your blogging game with a course or ebook… You’ll find something here.
I’ve read many ebooks and courses over the years. I only recommend products from creators who have genuinely helped me. Get yourself a deal below, and support an independent creator.
