You can’t have a successful blog without investing in various tools and resources. These are some of the ones I use and recommend to other bloggers.

Register Your Domains Hassle-Free

Get A Domain Name for Your Blog

NameCheap has competitive prices on domains and comes with free WhoIs privacy protection so your name and address are hidden online (GoDaddy charges $10/year). I switched from GoDaddy to NameCheap years ago to save money on renewals and privacy protection.

SiteGround Web Hosting

Get Web Hosting for Your Blog

SiteGround has affordable shared hosting plans. I talk a little about why I use SiteGround instead of BlueHost or HostGator here.

G Suite Email

Get a Branded Email Address

Google offers an inexpensive email service called G Suite that lets you send and receive email using your domain name as the email address. Use these promo codes to get 20% off your first year: F93L63G7TMTUCR6 (for the basic plan) or JAYYTGWU9M3VGJE (for the business plan).

Blogging Legal Bundle

Add Your Legal Pages

Your blog needs Terms and Privacy pages to protect yourself and inform visitors. Free template generators are full of holes, so I recommend the legal bundle from A Self Guru. It includes templates for Terms, Privacy, and Disclaimers.

ConvertKit Email Marketing

Start Your Email List

ConvertKit has several smart options and formats for collecting emails and sending out your newsletters. Their customer support is the best I’ve ever dealt with, so much love to them for that 🙂
