Tools

Here is a list of the resources, tools, apps, and software I have used to help create Prime Your Being over the past few years.

WordPress – The #1 blogging platform in the world. This is the current content management system that I use for this blog. It is 100% free and easy to set up.

 

Elegant Themes – They offer 87 beautiful WordPress Themes for the price of one. The theme I currently use for my blog is their Divi Theme.

  • I love this theme for its simplicity, customization, how to tutorials and the active community and support.
  • Themes and plugins can be used on as many websites as you like (client sites too).
  • I enjoy the Visual Drag and Drop feature with The Divi Builder (also available as a plug-in) to see edits and make changes in real time. This feature is a game changer.

 

Bluehost – This is the hosting service that I use for my blog. You can get hosting for as low as $3.95/month. Each time I have worked with support they have been super helpful and have had a pleasant experience each time.

 

GoDaddy – This is where I buy my web domain names. You can buy .com’s for as low as $9.99. Alternatively, if you sign up for hosting with Bluehost, you receive your first domain for free.

Some apps they offer include:

  • Welcome Mat

  • plus many other gems.

 

Snappa – Hands-down, the best web-based graphics software I’ve ever used. I continue to use Snappa daily (since their beta launch back in August 2015) to create, customize, and edit all the web and social graphics needed to exact specifications.

It is a massive time-saver.

Evernote – Helps me keep my thoughts organized, I use this to track, connect, collect and share my notes and ideas.
