I have invested time and money into many things online and so I’ve made this recommendation page so that you find things that I’ve found helpful. Some of the following are affiliate links but they are all sites that I’m happy to recommend and have personally used so if you do click on them and sign-up to the sites then I may get a small commission.

Expect to see this list grow as I find lots of useful things online.


Hostgator have provided my hosting since 2007 and I’ve had no problems with them whatsoever and they have always been responsive with any queries I’ve had. They are based in the US so bills come in dollars which usually means a good exchange rate.


Photodune.net provide a wide range of royalty free photographs and graphics with prices starting at $1. I often get photos from here for my niche sites as they’re much cheaper than other stock image providers.

Freepik is a great source for free photos, illustrations, PSD and vectors but if you’re using these for commercial purposes then it’s best to check the authorship and rights behind the images. I sometimes use the site for inspiration even if I don’t intend to use any of the files on there.


losttype.com has hundreds of fonts and users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in ‘$0′ for a free download which I have to admit I do most of the time!


Quidco is the UK’s No.1 cashback site and if you are buying anything online then follow links through the site and get some money back. Sometime’s it’s just pennies but I’ve used the site to buy things like TVs and laptops and managed to get some nice payouts. It’ not just for shopping online though and you can add your credit/debit card details to your account so when you shop instore you still get the cashback.
