Before I began my podcast and blogging journey my tech skills ended at Facebook. But I quickly learned that an essential element to my business would be having a web host. That’s were Bluehost came in. It was super simple to get started with even with my lack of tech skills. It came highly recommended and has been hosting my WordPress.org site like a charm.
WordPress.org comes with a very basic and not so pretty framework. But StudioPress framework fixed all that. I got a sleek, professional, mobile-friendly design. And the customer service has been phenomenal. I’ve had a lot of questions and they have been great at answering them. They have been excellent!
Having an email service is a must. So far, Mailchimp has been great. It’s rick free. I get my first 12,000 email and first 2,000 subscribers for free.

Ever wonder where to get pinterest worthy photos with text? Picmonkey it is. I love it because they have a completely free option that works great. You don’t even need to register with them. Simply download your photo (which remains solely yours throughout the entire process) and edit away.
I LOVE this site. It is by far the best site I have found for excellent free stock images. They allow you to edit pictures as you please and are completely free to download. The pictures are high quality and beautiful. They download ten new pictures every ten days. A total win!
