Resources to help you make and save some money with your blog site

Blog platform & Design

WordPress

Self Hosting only at £2.75: SiteGround

I recently transferred my hosting from Goddady to SiteGround and I recommend SiteGround. The transfer was easy plus I’m saving from £13 a month to £3.95 a month. Saving £10 each month is a big win for any blogger especially if you are just beginning.

I like to self-host because I have total control over my site and can change the look and design of it easily. I also prefer the look of my domain being www.prettywoo.com rather than www.prettywoo.wordpress.com.
