KartZon Recommended Blogging Resources & Tools:

I am getting many numbers of email and messages that People particularly want to know what tools I use to run my blogs.
As a result, I’ve put together a list of recommended blogging resources here. Also, I will add to these lists as I come across new blogging resources that I recommend.

Blog Platforms:
My recommendation for blogging platforms is WordPress.org
I’ve not build a blog on any other platform other than WordPress.org.

A couple of other platforms exist which you can try:
WordPress.com – a free hosted blogging platform.
Blogger – another free hosted option – owned by Google.

There are many hosting services available for bloggers. If you’re just starting out or have a smaller blog I highly recommend you check out HostGator who have specially put together a special discount offer for KartZon readers.

HostGator: WordPress has been recommending HostGator for web hosting since 2005. With 1-click WordPress installation, 24/7 support, and a super affordable rate, HostGator is a great option for building your first website or blog.

Note: On my blogs, I currently use HostGator for hosting. However, if you want you can use other hosting services as well like TDwebservices.
