Building a website is easier than ever these days. You don’t have to write line after line of code just to get a couple of images up on your site. But you still need a lot of help building it. These are the tools and resources I use to build this website. Hopefully, some of them can help you build your own.

Neve Theme

Neve is a great, lightweight, responsive theme that I use for some of my sites. It is incredibly fast and quite versatile. It works well for just about any type of website. It works wonderfully with both Gutenberg and Elementor as well as many other page builders. Plus it is free, so if you are just starting out this is a great option. Try it Free Right Here.


Photos and Images

Canva

Canva is an online image editing and design suite. Their free option is more than enough for most people. The suite itself is easy to use for beginners yet powerful enough to make professional designs if you really know what you are doing. Get Your Free Account Here.


Pixabay

Pixabay is a website that has over 1 million royalty-free stock photos and images that you can use on your blog. For a new blogger, this is a great place to get high-quality images without having to spend any money. Join Pixabay For Free

PikWizard

Here is another very good free stock photo site that I am just starting to use. The quality of the photos and images are top-notch.

The most important thing is the variety of images though. They have a very nice selection. Give them a look to help round out any free images you might need to mix in with your other stock images. You can join Pikwizard.com for free here.

You can sign up using your Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts which is very convenient.
