Welcome to my resources page, for building your own website. The tools that you see listed on this page will make building your own website easier than ever.
Some of the links are Affiliate Links(I get compensated if you buy something from one of my affiliate links), do not offer compensation. Either way, these are the products and services that I feel comfortable enough recommending.
Would you like to buy a website that already exists? Maybe you have a website that you would like to sell. I’ve used Flippa to sell domains that I bought and never used. Visit Flippa for more information.

WordPress uses themes as a source for the look and feel of the website.
The Genesis Framework for WordPress
There are thousands of theme templates available. StudioPress has some of the most popular themes designs available.
StudioPress themes work on a framework called Genesis, which is also part of their offerings. You can get the Genesis Framework here.
WordPress Child Themes
The Genesis Framework is the foundation, allowing you to choose from over 50 child themes, or choose to create your own Child Theme. This website uses WhiteSpace Pro Child Theme from StudioPress. Get the WhiteSpace Child Theme here, or Choose from the full line of StudioPress Child Themes Here.

Spell Checker/Proof Reader/Plagiarism Checker
Grammarly Checks your documents for Contextual Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation, Sentence Structure, Style and even Plagiarism.
The browser-based tool has a vocabulary enhancement tool that turns on/off in the toolbar depending on your writing needs.
Grammarly offers a Microsoft Word version for Windows-based users. The plugin is not available for OS X users.
Admittedly, I do not use Grammarly on everything I write. However, I should! I am updating older work as time allows.
Grammarly makes my writing better, and it will make your writing better.
A free version is available with limited features. In my case, the paid version catches a significant amount of the errors I make when I write.
