Some services we use ourselves and recommend.

Domain names and Hosting

Use Namecheap for your domain names which includes free registration privacy.

We highly recommend Big Scoots and WP Engine for managed WordPress hosting.

Site speed optimization

Use WP Rocket. It’s fantastic.

Mailing lists

We love ActiveCampaign for its integrated mailing list, automation, SMS and CRM features.


Akismet really improved the spam situation for bloggers. Free for a non-business personal site, otherwise a low cost. Worth the valuable time you’re saving not dealing with spam.


We love Gravity Forms. It makes creating forms so much simpler and it’s packed full of powerful features and integrations.


We recommend purchasing WP Recipe Maker for SEO, adjustable servings, user ratings, nutrition label, unit conversion, and saved recipe collections.
