Welcome to my product page. This is where I collate all the products that I use in creating and maintaining Salty Ginger. Note that some of these links are affiliate links and by purchasing through them you are helping support me and my Blog - Salty Ginger. But don't worry, using these links does not result in extra cost to you!
This page will be updated regularly to reflect what I use on a regular basis!
A good website host can make or break your website in terms of meeting the Google Core Web Vitals. I use Cloudways and can highly recommend them in terms of speed, ease of use and pricing. I recently had to scale up my server and it was super easy!
Choosing a theme can be fun or it can be super stressful. There are a ton of free themes out there, and I tried a few before I got serious and went with the Feast Design Plugin which is geared towards Recipe or Food Blogs.
This plugin gives you step-by-step instructions with regards to building a blog, helps with your SEO, and website speed, and gives you a beautiful blog.
Once you have your domain name, your hosting, and WordPress installed with your host, you will need a few Plugins to extend the usability of the core WordPress.
