Recommends

Welcome to my recommendation page. This is a collection of links for the products/services/programs for which I am an affiliate.

As an affiliate, I may earn a small commission on any qualifying purchases you make after following an affiliate link on my site. There is no additional charge to you, or change in your price. It’s simply a way for me to make a small income in exchange for promoting the products and services I use and/or love.

That being said: I think Amazon is a horrible corporation. Yes, I am an affiliate. I am working on alternatives. Until then: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Mailchimp

I use Mailchimp for my newsletter campaigns and love their free service level.

WordPress.com

I use the Open Source software WordPress on my GoDaddy hosting service at this moment. This is what many refer to as a “self hosted installation.” While I recommend this whenever possible, you can get the same results from WordPress.com (An Automattic Company) depending on your budget. Their FREE level DOES NOT allow for much customization or plug-ins.

Jetpack

From the same folks that bring us WordPress.com (Automattic) comes JetPack. This is a collection of plug-ins and functionality rolled into one product. Depending on your needs, it can be bloated, but their FREE version is a great starter plug-in for site statistics and pushing your content to social media automatically.

Acuity Scheduling

This is the scheduling “software” I use for all of my client appointments: web development, tarot and “Pick My Brain” sessions. Their FREE service is great, and once you start accepting payments, their paid plans are invaluable.

Google GSuite

I use GSuite for all of my business email accounts.

GeneratePress

The guts of the website you see before you. I build most of my sites on GeneratePress because it’s clean, well coded and well supported.

Elegant Themes

The Divi Theme is a product from Elegant Themes that I love to hate and hate to love. It’s versatile, drag and drop, and very pretty. It’s also bloated. But it’s pretty.
