I have created a Blogging Spree resources page that you can always come to for your blogging and WordPress needs. Here you will find tools that I use on my blog or have used to make my blog effective. As time goes on, I may replace some of the tools with others that will serve me better. I will reference this page often but I recommend that you bookmark the resources page for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!
My Most Recommended Resources
These resources are the most important resources for me and I feel you should also know about them. I recommend these throughout my blog because they served (and continue to serve me) well. I use them, because they made my blogging easy and helped me succeed.
Netfirms – Domain Name Registry: All my domain names are registered with Netfirms because it is reliable and inexpensive. You can purchase a .com domain name for under $10.00 per year. As well, what I like about this company is that they do not rip you off and charge you huge amount of money when you have to renew your domain name, as many other registrars do. The company offers excellent 24/7 support.
Hostgator – Web Hosting: Hostgator is my preferred web hosting company. I use their services for all my websites. Hostgator offers excellent live support 24/7. If you are not very technical such support is of utmost importance. It is because of the support I highly recommend Hostgator. Should you purchase a hosting account through this affiliate link please take advantage of my coupon that offers 25% off your hosting package. The coupon is BloggingSpree
Bluehost – is Hostgator’s sister company. I used to use it but then I wanted to consolidate my hosting accounts and migrated my sites to Hostgator. The reason I am recommending Bluehost, because for their first time clients Bluehost offers a free domain name. It is also an excellent hosting company with superb 24/7 live support.
Both companies offer the cPanel (control panel) which provides a graphical interface and automation tools that are technically very simple to use and are very user friendly even for newbies. Please read more about cPanel here…

Affiliate Club Membership – The way I make money is through affiliate marketing. Meaning, I sell products for other people and make commissions.

I highly recommend this club to you, especially if you have been struggling online for some time. It made all the difference to me and continues to do so. So if you want to “follow in my footsteps” and want to start making money, have a look at the video and see if this is something for you too.
