Below are the recommended tools (free and paid) and resources for blogging!
- Domain Registration Services
A lot of good services out there, but to keep things simple, I’ll say NameCheap is among the top.
NameCheap – I have an account with them for over 10+ years. Great service, good prices, easy to use.
- Web Hosting Services
There are many good hosting services out there, but also some bad ones too. I’ll only mention a couple of my top choices for low cost shared hosting providers with top customer support.
BlueHost – consistently one of the most highly rated web hosting companies on the web.
HostGator – I had 10+ years of customer relationship with them.
- Website Building Tool
WordPress, it is FREE! Most web hosting companies allows installation of wordpress with built-in tool that takes literally 1 minute to install wordpress! See my tutorial here
- Email Marketing Tools
Most email marketing tools comes with features like autoresponders (automated emails sending schedule), and newsletter blast. Currently, these are the top 2 I recommend:

ActiveCampaign – FREE 30 Day trial, plans starts at $9/month

*If you are serious with making money online, having a website is highly recommended. It’s not that expensive either, a domain costs about $8/yr, hosting is about $30-$50/yr, and a blog website can be built for free quickly and easily, see my free free training.
