Online Tech and Equipment Recommendations

Disclosure: I only share systems which I think are good, the opinions shared here are my own. Some of the links I share are affiliate links which means I may receive a commission for recommending them to you.

The website builder I recommend using is WordPress, it offers the most functionality and integrations. If you don’t want to build the site yourself for a small monthly fee Xsitely can build it for you.

If you need hosting for your WordPress website I recommend Siteground. I’ve used them for years and have always received great support and service.
