WordPress - A Self-hosted WordPress is the only way to go (in my opinion) if you want to get serious about blogging. Not only is it free to download, but there are a ton of different plugins and themes to really make WordPress look like something you can call your own. There are a lot of credible companies that use WordPress (Wall Street Journal, eBay, Sony and Samsung just to name a few). That should let you know how powerful this platform has really become.
HostGator - I have tried many hosting companies over the years. And the more I try the more I appreciate the service received from HostGator. Their customer service is top notch and I receive premium up-time and efficiency when using their services.
Studio Press - NetworkGooder is built on the Genesis Framework. The Genesis Framework was built by the guys from Studio Press. I cannot recommend this framework high enough. The support from the Studio Press team is top notch and the framework empowers you to quickly and easily build incredible websites with WordPress. Genesis provides the secure and search-engine-optimized foundation that takes WordPress to places you never thought it could go.
Mail Chimp - MailChimp helps you design email newsletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results. It’s like your own personal publishing platform.
AnyMeeting.com - This is a tool I use to conduct all of my PBR webinars. The application is solid, robust and Free (up to 40 attendees). This is a great tool to jump start your online Business Opportunity Meetings and establish your online presence.
