I’ve tried to break down the various resources free and paid that I use. Many of these things I use every single day. I hope this list can be helpful for you.

Blogging Resources

LV TransparentLiquidVolt WordPress Hosting: I host my site with a company called LiquidVolt. This isn't your standard run of the mill web hosting service. They aren't reselling you shared hosting, they aren't offering shared hosting but rather are taking a one-on-one approach to each client. If you are thinking about hosting a WordPress blog or site you should get in touch with them. If you are hesitant because of the cost they can help you at rates starting as low as $7.99 a month.
StudioPress Premium WordPress ThemesStudioPress Themes: I use StudioPress themes almost exclusively for all of my projects. The theme on this website is a Genesis theme crafted by StudioPress. If you are looking for an easy to use WordPress theme that looks great and doesn't break the bank I highly suggest checking out StudioPress themes.
