I’ve been a lifetime member since 2010. It’s a fantastic place to connect with other photographers, from those just picking up a camera for the first time to complete professionals.

They include a Member Perks Library that includes editing demos, free presets, shooting videos, and more.

This is an excellent app for editing photos and videos. Not just with filters, although they have plenty of those, but also with effects like light flares and color fogs. It also lets you fine-tune with curves and HSL.

General Website

Clicky is my preferred analytics software! It’s easier to use than Google Analytics and offers many more features. They also provide fantastic support.

This is a URL shortening service that, if you have one, lets you use your custom short URL! If not, it uses it’s own short URL and allows you to give it a custom name.

It also has analytics to see how many times a link has been clicked and from where.

WordPress Plugins

This plugin is not just social share buttons (although those are freaking awesome), but this plugin allows you to upload unique images for Pinterest and other social networks, and even share count recovery!

This is the plugin I am using to display my Instagram photos. It has every customization option you can think of. One of my absolute favorites!

You can do anything with this plugin, including accepting payments, conditional logic (a personal fav), connections with your email list provider, and so much more!

One of the best caching plugins I have worked with! If you want a fast-loading site, this is the plugin for you.

Optimizing a photo reduces the file size dramatically without compromising on quality. This translates to much faster loading times for your readers and less drag on your server.

They have a suite of amazing plugins for WordPress!

My personal favorites are Tasty Recipes & Tasty Links.

With form templates, a drag-and-drop editor, all sorts of add-ons for payment processing and connection to your opt-in forms, this plugin is a must-have!


I love coffee. From drip to pulling my own espresso shots. And this is some really good coffee.

My favorite premium beans! My would be Tropical Weather. I also buy their Cold Brew beans regularly.


I own four of these and they are amazing! If I could replace all of my grow bags with GreenStalks, I would in a heartbeat. So easy to maintain, to water, to grow anything in. It’s my favorite garden item!
