As a blogger or a wannabe blogger, you may be looking for ideas on various tools available for building your site, or other tasks. Let me share options for some of the popular tools or resources. Some of the tools are free, some have freemium models and some are paid.

Free Tools: Absolutely free

Freemium: These tools have multiple plans. Some of the features are available in free plan and for more features, you need to pay.
Freemium = Free + Premium

Open Source: Some of the tools mentioned here are open source. This means, if you are interested, you can take the source code and make changes. So, now you have your own unique version of the same tool. I love open source tools.

This page is continuously evolving. I’ll add more content, share URLs with you.

Feel free to suggest some of the tools you use or like.

If you purchase any of the paid/freemium tools, don’t fret much. You are paying and you are getting service.
No purchase is and should make you poor. Buy only if you think you will use. 
Remember, if you don’t like some tool, you can go ahead and get the alternative. Yes, it will cause trouble (and sometimes more money) to switch but you’ll not be forced to use it forever.
