What I use to work at homeWhat I use to Work at home

I set up wordpress blogs for myself, my family, and friends. I also do it for pay. These are some of the things I use to create a blog or website. Working at home is freeing and hectic, it takes planning and support. These are what I use to work at home.

Some are free. Some are paid. I use affiliate links when available which means I may earn a few cents if you sign up or purchase something.

WordPress themes

WordPress uses themes to give you different features and colors. What kind of theme you need depends on what you want your blog to do. Most important is to be mobile ready. That’s why I recommend the themes at Restored316.
