Curationsoft: This can help gather relevant info, images, tweets and video content for you blog posts. A really powerful piece of kit that can save a bunch of time.
GoDaddy: A place to buy Domain Names
I use WordPress on my website. It’s a very powerful FREE CMS and is well supported with tutorials all over the web. You can use a version hosted by WordPress.com or download the software and host it on your own webserver. If you want to use your own domain name then using WordPress.org is the best.
A few of these products are Affiliate links, which means if you choose to purchase or use them I might get a small percentage of the cost from the companies.
