Tools of the trade

Don't know where to start from in the blogging world? I have been there. I still remember how difficult it was for me to get started. Looking for all the information about how to purchase a domain, where to get my blog hosted, which content management system to use, etc. can lead to procrastination as one keeps putting off getting started to first gather all the necessary information and tools.

Now procrastination is a word you want out of your dictionary in order to be productive. This list will help you avoid the hassle that I went through to get started. It will keep growing as I discover and add new tools.

Note:

 Some links here are affiliate links, which means I will get a commision if you purchase anything through them. Which, of course, I encourage you to do if there is anything on the list that you would like to purchase. Remember that there are no additional costs to you.
