Assuming that I’m typical of anyone who has a website. I’m sure that at some point you’ve thought, like I have, about how awful it would be if your website suddenly crashed or worse yet if it vanished altogether.
TIPS & RESOURCES
I thought it would be helpful to create a page that food bloggers and health coaches can use to learn from what has happened to me, and see the products and services I use for my site.
My hope is to save others time and sometimes frustration especially if you’re new to the blogging world and are creating a website on your own.
Scroll down to find my list of resources that may help you. Please keep in mind that these resources are continually evolving as I find different plugins and products that I feel are worth mentioning.
My work-life mix has always been focused and a deliberate effort of trying to balance and blend my priorities and interests in family, career, food, healthy living, creativity, and storytelling in a way that touches the people around me and reminds them of what is most important in life. Sorting everything out has always been a little chaotic and disorganized for me and generally for my family too, but in the end, that’s what has made our life an interesting and rewarding journey.
