The Website/ Hosting
There are multiple platforms that do themes and hosting for you but I loved the design options and the "I have no clue what in Jesus's name I am doing" but we can help you get through it step by step process. Honestly. I am not (nor do I claim to be) educated in HTML or code, and real talk... not interested. I will leave that to the professionals at Wix. It was easy to navigate and set up, they even let me see the design and layout prior to purchasing! A Lot of sites require all the moolah (a.k.a money) up front but not them. Super helpful customer service, and have been with me every step of the way! Check it out here
Gallery/ Stock Photos
When I first began my blogging venture, I was a little hesitant of stock photo companies, but let me tell you what a game changer it was for me. I am more a do it yourself kind of gal, but taking pictures (and perfect ones at that are extremely time consuming! So I went on a search for ones that fit my style and lo' and behold Haute Stock. Best investment EVA! They have two types of options a quarterly and yearly membership, take a look here.
Fonts/ Stock Photos
Along with Haute Stock, I also discovered Creative Market. I really do love this site. It has different graphic designers who license out their work. It's like a small business site for starving (maybe?) artist. I haven't found something I don't like on this site. Also you get free downloads every week!
