Welcome to my personal blog!
If you want to learn more about me, check out the about page.
Alternatively, just jump right into any of the topics that interest you. I love to write and am passionate about several topics, so I’ve organized all my content into the following categories for your convenience.
Products I Use
I’m very passionate about products, and one of my hobbies consists of researching and trying out products.
I’ve written a post about how I found my ideal hosting for my WordPress sites, so you should definitely check that out if you want to know more about my selection process.
For a quick recommendation, however, these are my favorite web hosts:
High traffic sites:
The first thing you need when starting a new website is, of course, a domain name.
- Namesilo is where I’ve got most of my domains registered, they offer free WHOIS protection. Their .com domain registrations start from $8.99.
- Namecheap is where I register my .io domains. Prices for domains start at $3.98.
I recommend Freedom.to if you are looking for a cross-platform solution for blocking out distracting websites for stretches of time. It works flawlessly and will repay your investment very quickly. It is one of my essential tools since I suffer from the shiny object syndrome.
I use Blinkist for
- quickly revising books that I’ve read already
- discovering new books and deciding whether I want to read the full book
- exploring new topics in a non-daunting way
Followupthen is one of my essentials in Gmail.
Since we travel alot, I use Safety Wing which is the most user-friendly travel insurance I’ve found, and is especially great for digital nomads or remote teams.
Music for Working
Here are my favorite sites/apps for listening to music while working:
Grammarly for Spelling and Grammar checking
Do you always have a grammar-wiz friend or professional look over your writing to make sure it is error-free an easy to read? What if I told you there was a tool to help you proof-read your work and check for grammatical errors? Well, there is!
Grammarly is an awesome, FREE, online grammar checker for proofreading. It identifies grammar mistakes, spelling mistakes, and typos. Simply click on the error and it provides solutions and explanations to your mistake. I love that Grammarly integrates seamlessly across multiple platforms. You can use Grammarly Microsoft Office, an online dashboard, or the Grammarly Chrome plugin.
Grammarly can even help you improve your writing in Google Docs! Grammarly has a beta version for Chrome in Google Docs to all users! You want to impress your collaborators with your excellent writing, use Grammarly!
Skype video and audio recording – Ecamm Call Recorder
This is very useful when I need to record important conversations and when recording interviews for my podcast.
