I thought it would be helpful to people if I created this resource page that you can always come back to for all types of Mothering Matters, as well as some blogging resources. I’ll add more to this page as I discover more, so bookmark this page for your convenience!
Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links and, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a small commission if you decide to make a purchase. This is one of the ways that I maintain /improve this website and have the time to help people when they contact me. Please know that I picked these specific resources because I believe they will help people, not because of the small commission I make if you decide to make a purchase. Many of these resources I own or have used myself. Please don’t buy any product unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.
WordPress.org – The FREE web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog on your own self-hosted domain (which you can host at the next resource – Bluehost) If you are looking to start a blog and don’t want to venture into self-hosting just yet – you can try out WordPress.com or Blogger.com (also called Blogspot). I started on Blogger – but if you are serious about wanting to blog and make money from it – I would recommend starting a wordpress.ORG site, getting your own domain and hosting and just going for it!
Bluehost– Affordable website hosting with great customer support! Unlimited domain hosting, email accounts, a free domain, free site builder with templates, $100 Google advertising offer and more!

Couponing & Promo Codes
Coupons.com – One of my favorite places to print coupons from home. Remember – you can print 2 like coupons from each computer you use!
Coupon Database – Use this database to find specific coupons that you need.
List of couponing/deal sites – I have some links to various sites I use for printing coupons as well as some deals/freebies.
Cheap Sally – One of my favorite places to go to for online coupon promo codes. Never buy anything online without checking for coupon codes first! You can save a ton this way! (I almost won their contest to be a blogger at Cheap Sally last year! Check out my family’s crazy entry video!)
