Website & Blogging
Note: I use WordPress, and will recommend a few ‘plugins’ that are only compatible with it. Most plugins I recommend are freemium, meaning they offer free & paid tiered options. Check with your website designer and/or hosting provider before you purchase paid options, as they may already provide some of these services.
