Business & Website Tools

siteground
Siteground! The hosting service I use for my blog. Amazing up time and ridiculously fast customer service support. They also help me with technical issues not related to hosting.

After several months of struggling to make a free WordPress theme work, I invested in the Maggie theme from Bluchic. It is saving me SO much time and effort because it is so simple to use, yet elegant by design. It makes my site look very chic and professional. I wish I got this earlier! If Maggie is not for you, then look at the other feminine themes at Bluchic.
