I use quite a few products to help me with all this web magic I’ve got going on. Both my wife and I have crated many niche blogs ranging from outdoor enthusiast sites, sports, and professional services. Tools, while not necessary, make my life as a blogger a whole lot easier.

Web Hosting Plans
The right hosting plan makes all the difference in the world. I’ve tried many and without a doubt, Namecheap and Bluehost make my life easy.
I’ve been using Namecheap for years for domain purchases, buying SSL certificates, and hosting. I’ve never had a problem that couldn’t be resolved with an email to the customer service department or Googling for a solution. Any issue I’ve had has been caused by me jacking something up (DNS mods) or selecting the wrong product.
I also use Bluehost for hosting niche sites. Zero issues. Amazing customer support. Super easy to use interface.
Trello is yet another web based list building app, but Trello is actually awesome, and you can use it for free (as of this writing, but I’ve been using the free version for years).
Trello’s boards, lists, and cards enable you to organize and prioritize your projects in a very flexible way.
It almost seems silly to recommend this, because I’m assuming that everyone has a gmail account, but that might not be the case. And even if you have a Gmail account, you might not be aware that you have access to Google Docs.
