Hosting and Design

Hosting - Bluehost

I use Bluehost and so far everything has been great. When I first started researching Blog info and such, almost every Blog I read recommended Bluehost. Six months later and there are several other recommendations out there. I have had no issues with Bluehost, it is very user-friendly and affordable.

Design - My Theme Shop

Here you will find a variety of free and paid/membership themes and plugins. I use several of the plugins including WP Shortcode. Throughout the year there are sales and discounts offered, as well as updates and new stuff added. Super user-friendly and great support too!

Ivory Mix  

Every month I get an email with a sample of FREE (yes FREE) stock photos. There are color themes, style themes and a great mix of options. They add hundreds of new photos every single month, and most bundles are very affordable at just $10.00. Plus, Kayla at Ivory Mix has great resources for
creating beautiful social media feeds, you should seriously check out Ivory Mix

For a fun and sometimes goofy take on life, check out Gratisography - free high resolution pictures. I have used several of his photos and think they are totally cool. The laptop pic is one of my favorites, you can see it used throughout my blog. From the website: All pictures were photographed by Ryan McGuire and free of copyright restrictions. 

 

I also like  Creative Market. They have a ton of stuff available, fonts, graphics, photos...

Also, the have weekly FREE goods. The Minimal Social Media Market Kit is just one of the examples of a weekly free good offered.

They honestly have tons of stuff, reasonably priced, to help kickstart your creative mojo.
