This resources page lists the tools that I personally use and recommend. I thought it would be helpful to list them all in one place and hope you find it to be of use.
Bluehost – Very easy to install – a few clicks and it’s done. Check out the following post that takes you through the set up process: How to Set Up a Bluehost Account and Install WordPress
StudioPress Premium Themes – Professionally designed child themes. I purchased the Pro Plus All-Theme Package which gives me access to all of their themes, including the Genesis Framework, and all future themes they create.
Genesis Framework – This handles all of the core code and is required for the child theme to function.

Images and Photos
I prefer to buy my images and I have accounts with both of the following:
PhotoDune – Over 4.5 million images.
Crestock – Over 2 million images.
WordPress.org – Free to use and all sorts of plugins available to tailor your site to your specific needs.
Firefox – This is the main browser I use.
Google Chrome – I have recently started to learn how to use Google Chrome. Reason being I would occasionally have some problems with Firefox after they issued an upgrade. This does not happen with every upgrade and the glitches always get fixed in future upgrades. However, I decided to check out another web browser that I could fall back on until any Firefox bugs got fixed.
Gimp – A free image editing tool that has many functions.
