This resources page will be updated as I keep adding more content on the website. Tools I use and recommend.
Blogs and Websites
Domain name provider
I buy most of my domain names at Namesilo because they offer free WHOIS privacy. Domains with .com extension are around 6.99$/year and are very easy to point to anywhere, Shopifymple to Shopify, wix, Etsy.
At this moment I use Hostpresto and it is working for me because I can upgrade or downgrade easily depending on what I’m working on and it’s billed monthly. SSL costs 25$/year, some hosting plans include a free domain name.
Siteground is another company I highly recommend. This hosting is very professional, ssl is included, sites are loading fast and it is very secure.
I suggest getting Hostpresto or a2hosting if you have a tight budget and can pay month to month.
How to start a blog or a website learn about it here.
Online Store Platform
My number one choice is Shopify online Store platform. For small businesses, and solopreneurs this is one great way to go. Using this platform can save you a lot of time.
You can start with Shopify even if you don’t have anything to sell. They have apps, you can find products, add to your store and start selling.
My favorite print on demand company is Printful.

MailChimp is Free to 2000 contacts and 12,000 emails. This can be easily integrated with Shopify too.
Aweber 19$/mo 500 subscribers
Getresponse 15$/mo 1000 subscribers and unlimited emails
Convertkit I think this is a Premium tool for serious entrepreneurs.

Grammarly is Chrome extension, it will help you to correct most of the mistakes on your blog, shop, emails. I use it and it is very helpful for non-native English writer.
