Resources & Tools Used to Build Tasty Itinerary Blog
Tasty Itinerary and Kathy’s On It are being hosted by Siteground. If you want a hosting site that you can rely on, you can’t go wrong with Siteground. I highly recommend them enough. Siteground’s customer service chat option is a lifesaver.
Blue Host offers a 1-click WordPress installation. It is my #2 choice as it is cost-effective and easy to use. I’d say, great for beginner bloggers. I was with them for 3 years and switched once my contract was up.
Currently, this site is using the Generatepress theme. If you’re looking for better page speed and a customizable site, I highly recommend using Generatepress. You may need some knowledge in building a theme or you could use one of their templates.
Need help installing it and getting a basic customized theme up and running. Check out my VA services.

Social Media Tools
To plan my grid, stay up to date with the best times to post and hashtags, I use two apps: Planoly & UNUM.
To drive traffic to my blog, I post to Pinterest. Without Ell’s Pinterest E-course, I would have never been bale to triple my traffic through Pinterest.
