Wondering where to invest your time and money? Take it from someone who has gone before you. I like to call myself a course junkie, I'm obsessed with educating myself so that I can get things done the right way-not the hard way. I'd love to share my blogging recommendations with you! I would never recommend anything I haven't personally used or verified! If you're looking to organize your courses make sure to scroll to the end of this page and let me help you with that!

Getting Started Blogging
Siteground is my top recommendation for web hosting. I began with BlueHost but they messed up my site. I haven't had any regrets switching to Siteground. They have amazing customer service and are wonderful for site speed!
After testing email service providers I believe ConvertKit is the best out there from beginner to advanced bloggers. I began with MailerLite but after some hiccups with them in 2018 I switched to ConvertKit and never looked back.
I use Podia to host my courses. I absolutely love them and their customer service! I switched from Thinkific to their platform in one day and had them on chat the entire time! They didn't mind at all and walked me through the whole process!
All Encompassing Blogging Courses
I joined Dare to Conquer (DTC) in 2018 and it was one of the best decisions for my business. DTC (Formerly known as the Billionaire Blog Club or BBC), is more than just a blogging course. In fact, it's several courses on one platform. It includes access to the course creator, Scrivs. Plus a community in Slack. There are also areas of the platform that you can share resources with each other. Plus more. It's worth every penny.
