Mega List of Blogging Resources

Posted 06 January 2012 - 05:37 AM

I have decided to create this list to help us all find information quicker. I personally use Wordpress extensively and so most of the links I put on the list will be for Wordpress, however feel free to comment with your own suggestions! I shall try to keep the list updated often.


Blogging Software


Domain Names


General Blogging Advice


Hosting


Wordpress Plugins


Wordpress Themes


Wordpress Theme/Plugin Development



*By Base I mean that it is a template rather than a theme, usually there is no styling at all. They are good bases from developers and can sometimes improve SEO and other factors that theme developers do not always think about.

I shall have a look around, most free themes are usually on the official site though (which I did link to).

Great list. I especially loved the Theme/Plugin development.

Just to encourage you guys: Blogging is not hard. In fact, it's extremely cheap as well. You can start your blog on wordpress.com or blogspot.com and it's completely free.

Amazing thread especially for newcomers. Bookmarked it already to keep an eye on its growth over time. Anyway, I've been using Elegant Themes on most of my own and client's sites for years now. It really doesn't require any coding skills to create a professional looking website. Completely drag and drop system.

But if you are comfortable with little codes then Genesis Framework is what you need. Every huge blogger is using the Genesis Framework. It's fast and simple. Myself I'm not a coder but Genesis is very easy to learn. There are tons of tutorials available on the web to get you started.

Cheers!
