Are you a blogger looking to go pro? Self-hosting your blog is the next step to expanding your influence! I highly recommend using Bluehost for your hosting needs. They provide an easy setup, responsive support, premium-level features, and incredible prices—like $2.75 a month. (That’s basically just a latte. You can skip a latte every 30 days, right?)

If you’ve got a small to medium-sized blog, Bluehost is the perfect fit as you expand into the professional blogging sphere. In fact, you can have special savings for being part of my community. (For the record, I’m an affiliate with Bluehost, but I’d recommend them even if I wasn’t. Their services are truly worth it.)

This is the audio editing software I use. It is expensive and probably overkill. There are free or cheaper alternatives available. I bought it because Cliff Ravenscraft recommended it and has some good tutorials about it. It is super-easy to use, but I feel I am only tapping five percent of its capabilities.

Back when I had comments, this was the plugin I used to control comment spam. Even though I received more than 500 comments a day, I got very little spam. Akismet blocked almost all it, so it never saw the light of day. This creates less work for you and less friction for your readers. (For example, you don’t have to require them to register to leave a comment.)

If you use WordPress as I recommend, you will need a hosting service too. I recommend BlueHost. They are currently offering a special $3.95 a month rate to my readers. I also have a free screencast that will show you how to set up a WordPress site on BlueHost in 20 minutes or less.
