Resources

I thought it would be helpful to create a resources page that might be helpful if you want to create something similar to what I create. I’ll keep this page updated as I learn more so I recommend bookmarking it for your future reference. Cheers!

Blogging:

  • WordPress: Awesome Blog Publishing Platform. Open source and easily customizable. Warm community. All of my blogs use WordPress.
  • Thesis Theme:  Premium WordPress Theme Framework that I’ve been using for over 3 years. Pretty good SEO.  Fast page-load time. Pretty good readability.
  • StudioPress Themes: Genesis – another Premium WordPress Theme Framework. This site runs on it. You need to experience it to know why it is recommended by Industry experts today.

Domain & Hosting:

  • Godaddy Resources: My one-stop destination for domain buying needs. They send so many promotional emails but you can set a filter to keep those away from your mailbox. Pretty good domain name registration service.
  • HostGator: 99% of my sites are hosted on HostGator. No-nonsense plans. Excellent service. Must use.

Advertising Stuff:

  • Google Adsense: If you want to earn some bucks by placing relevant ads on your website that are generated from advertisers using Google Adwords. This is free to use, but you have to register for an account.
  • Google AdwordsIf you want to promote your stuff on Google and want to pay for it too, then this is the tool. You can select keywords and locations and pay each time someone clicks on your advertisement.

Project Collaboration:

  • Trello:  Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. Minimalistic tool of my choice for project collaboration needs.
  • Basecamp: Crazy guys of 37Signals have created this awesomely simple project collaboration tool.

Books:
