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.
Bluehost offers a 1-click WordPress installation. It is my #2 choice as it is cost effective and easy to use. I was with them for 3 years and switched after my contract was up.
