Blog Talk

This is a special page dedicated to all things blogging because as a newbie it’s not been as easy a set up as one may think.  All the information I’ve read regarding this subject matter, while helpful sells the process quite short.

Signing up for the domain has been the easiest bit by far.  No exaggeration here!

When I am not making silly mistakes, I’m committing hours to working out what goes where and it’s been a mission!  This is all before I have even written a halfway decent post that requires heavy editing.

Still it has been all worth it considering what I have learnt in the process.

My hope is by reading about my follies you can learn a little bit too!

CHOOSING WHERE TO HOST YOUR BLOG

SITEGROUND

If you click on the link below I will receive compensation for it, but what is written here is of my own opinion through my experience with my domain host.

I won’t spend time telling you how awesomely, cool, brilliant, fantastically fabulous this company is because they are, just so you know.

What I believe is more important is how they fixed the problems that I caused when I had no idea what I was doing.

If you don’t have the time to read this post then I’ll give you the shortened sweet version.

My troubles so far an accurate accounting…

  1.  Attempted to change my domain name whereby attempting to connect to somebody elses domain (Oops!)
  2. Attempted to purchase something I had already paid for.   (Always read what you have bought)…
  3. Had my IP blocked from entering the wrong password too many times to log in.  (I plead insanity)

Each time I had to go to them for help via their online chat support but you can call no matter what time, or check out their FAQ’s.

The wait was mere seconds and I got  some very helpful customer service peeps who had my problem fixed in no time at all!

All because of my foolhardy ways.

So if you’ve looking to own your own blog CLICK BELOW!

They are fantastically priced, make it easy to set up and back that up with great customer support.

What are you waiting for?

Web Hosting

OTHER RESOURCES

I have found some websites that are worth acknowledging in the very least for the great service they provide and most of it has been free, and some not.   So far my list is very short, but will likely continue to add more when I make more great finds.

PHOTOS/ILLUSTRATIONS

Worst photographer in the world right here.

No matter what I always either capture a blurred finger in front of the lens or take the worse shot in the dullest light.

For people like me the websites I have mentioned below have been a blog saviour.

The photos are not copyrighted either which means zero possibility of being sued.

PIXABAY – has a fantastic selection of free photos and even better options to purchase.

ISTOCKPHOTO – photos available to purchase only.  Also has a fantastic selection available.  

For the links listed I have not been paid or received any compensation.  I just think they are great resources to help improve the look of your blog.  All tried and tested with the Wahines seal of approval. 

GRAPHIC DESIGNS FOR THE AMATEUR

canva-com

 

For all the funky designs on my photos go no further than:

CANVA – is free on a basic plan however has options to upgrade at a very reasonable cost

Awesome is pretty much what I have to say about this website.

The is the place to be for people who don’t know anything about graphic design to graphic design.  Or at least try to anyhow.

For the links listed I have not been paid or received any compensation.  I just think they are great resources to help improve the look of your blog.  All tried and tested with the Wahines seal of approval.
