Hello and welcome to my resources page. I created this list mostly so I could easily click on my favorite tools, but over time I’ve added articles and websites which might be helpful to you.

Strategies for Website Planning:
Is Your Site Mobile-Friendly?
How good is your current web host? Run your IP address through this site Reverse IP Domain Check to see how many other websites are hosted on your same web server. Too many sites on one IP address can cause problems with SEO, as well as cause your site to be “overblocked” if even one other site on your shared host contains some form of adult or explicit content.
I use and recommend Siteground.
Recommended WordPress Themes:
I use the Studiopress Genesis Framework as my primary theme, with some of the following child themes (note: I am an affiliate for Studiopress and received a small commission if you purchase through these links).
- Mai Lifestyle Pro Theme
- Breakthrough Pro Theme
- Essence Pro Theme
- Altitude Pro Child Theme
- Foodie Pro Theme
- Daily Dish Pro Theme
- Parallax Pro Theme
- Executive Pro Theme
- StudioPress Pro Plus All-Theme Package
