Blogging Resources

Resources for bloggers


I thought it might be helpful to some of you who might be thinking of starting your own blogs to include a blogging resources page.  This page contains all of the resources and services that I use on this website (I call it a blog/website hybrid), Bargain Mums.


Getting your blog started



SiteGround – We highly recommend SiteGround for hosting your blog.  They are perfect for hosting WordPress sites, unlike other hosts who turn a blind eye to any issues that may arise if you have WordPress installed (speaking from personal experience).  Prices start at only $3.95 per month, plus they offer a free domain with your hosting, saving you around $10 per year.


Domain Name

Crazy Domains – While we don’t recommend Crazy Domains for website hosting, we use them for all of our domain names.


Building your website


WordPress themes

Themeforest – Themeforest has an amazing range of WordPress themes, and is where we purchased our current theme.


WordPress plugins

BackupBuddy – An essential plugin to create backups of your WordPress website.



Earning money from your blog



Jack Media – Jack Media connect affiliates with a range of group buying deal websites, as well as offering a range of email campaigns.


Commission Factory – Commission Factory have a huge number of big name brands on board for affiliates to partner with, especially focusing on brands in the retail industry.
