I use SiteGround for hosting of the web site.

I first attempted to sign up with another hosting service, but after a kafkaesk conversation with customer service, I decicded to go with SiteGround instead. I’m happy to say it’s been an easy and pain free experience so far. Affiliate link (see below).

Elegant Themes

I use the Divi theme from Elegant Themes to build the web site. Despite my (quite obvious) lack of design skills, this has been a surprisingly easy tool to use. Affiliate link (see below).

The cookie message

I use Google Analytics to measure visitors to the web site and track any affiliate purchases. (Or in all honesty, at this early stage of the web site I mostly use it to see if anyone – anyone – visit the site at all.) The information is anonymous, but I do get to see such things as the pages that have been visited; where people have stumbled upon the site from; which country you are based and so on.

Affiliate disclosures:

Some of the links on this web site are ‘affiliate links.’ This means that if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission that goes towards the costs of running the web site If I include an affiliate link in a post, I will let you know in that post.

I will only use affiliate links to services or products I have used – and paid for – myself. I have joined the affiliate programs of SiteGround and Elegant Themes and I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program.
