12 Simple Life Habits To Start For A Healthier + Happier Life

Working towards a better me is always on my to-do list.

What about yours?

In my opinion, there is always room for growing and learning and exploring.

So, I often seek out ways to improve life and have found these simple habits have transformed my life the most.

Are you ready to have your best year ever? Then it is time to focus on YOU and incorporate these 12 habits into your life. For a simpler, happier, and less stressful life, start these 12 healthy habits in 2019. Personal growth and your overall wellness are the most important things to focus on. It's time to have the best year ever! Happy New Year! Habits | How To Make Habits | Habits For Better Life | How To Live Better | How To Be Happy | Starting Habits | Habit Tips

Some of the links in this post are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission.

You see, living life to the fullest (no matter how cliche) and becoming the best version of yourself are two things that you should make time for every single day.

Because, little changes add up to big changes.

Focusing on daily habits that enrich your life, such as improving your mental and physical health, creating better bonds, and becoming more knowledgeable, will only make your life better.

So, I challenge you to incorporate something new into your life and stick with it for a month – the perfect amount of time to form a habit.

And, although all of our goals are different, here are the twelve life changing habits that every single person can benefit from.

1.  Utilize Your Planner

The best way for you to start + stick with new habits is to write them down.

And the best place to write them down?  Your planner!

You see, you will always be more likely to follow through with something if you write it down first.

So, get yourself a planner that you love.  And, stat! (Our Life Boss Planner is amazing!)

See, if you’re anything like me (and I suspect you are,) you absolutely cannot write something down in your perfect planner and then NOT do it.

Oh!  And the sweet satisfaction you feel when you get to check it off your to-do list?  Too good to miss!

So, make it a habit to schedule out “planner time” each night before bed to wind down from the day, reflect, and plan for tomorrow.

Trust me, you’ll wake up feeling more organized and more motivated than ever.

TAKE ACTION:  Find your perfect planner so you don’t go another day without organization and productivity in your life.

life habits to start

2.  Get & Keep Your Finances In Order

Paying attention to your finances and sticking to a monthly budget is a necessary habit to introduce into your life (if you haven’t already.)

I mean, nobody enjoys wasting money or being broke, right?

So, you need to know where your money is coming from and going towards each month. (The Budget Boss Binder is a great resource to organize and track your finances.)

See, even though having a budget is hella important to living a healthy and balanced life, I find more often than not that most people do not have a plan for their money.

And, well, this BLOWS MY MIND.

Are you ready to have your best year ever? Then it is time to focus on YOU and incorporate these 12 habits into your life. For a simpler, happier, and less stressful life, start these 12 healthy habits in 2019. Personal growth and your overall wellness are the most important things to focus on. It's time to have the best year ever! Happy New Year! Habits | How To Make Habits | Habits For Better Life | How To Live Better | How To Be Happy | Starting Habits | Habit Tips

I mean, if you have a job and bills, then you need a budget.

To start this new habit, evaluate your current budget plan (or lack thereof) and make sure that it is working by asking yourself these questions:

  • does the thought of money stress you out?
  • are you short for bills a lot?
  • are you living paycheck to paycheck?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, start to explore new budget options, such as the automated budget system that we use and love.

TAKE ACTION:  Organize your finances and track your budget with the Budget Boss Binder.

3.  Start Saving For The Future

I’m willing to bet that there is something you want, but can’t quite afford yet. 

Maybe it’s a new purse, a brand-new car, or even a house.

Regardless of what, though, we can all agree that most people have something that they wish they could afford to buy.

So, why not have an efficient savings plan set up that you can put into play whenever there’s something you’re looking to buy?

This way, you don’t have to think about saving money.

I guarantee you, making this a habit now will benefit you loads in the future, over and over again.

TAKE ACTION:  Open a high-interest APY savings account and automatically deposit money into it each pay cycle.

4.  Drink More Water

I know, I know.  Another blog post telling you to drink more water.

And for good reason!

More than half of our bodies are made up of water so it’s obvious how essential it is to be replenishing your water intake each day.

I didn’t always drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water a day, and when I started to, I could 100% tell the difference.

There are SO many health benefits to drinking more water including:

  • clearer skin
  • healthier hair
  • stronger nails
  • more energy
  • weight loss

And, if your water bottle is always with you, it’ll become a habit to drink more throughout the day.

TAKE ACTION:  Purchase a Hydroflask and bring it everywhere.

life habits to start

5.  Start A Night Routine

It is so easy to head to bed totally exhausted, too tired to prepare for tomorrow.

Or take your eyeliner off, for that matter.

However, having a night routine to wind-down and prepare for the following day is a crucial habit to form if you want to become more productive with your time and more accountable with your goals.

Cool!  But, like, what’s a night routine and how do you start one?

Good question.  Let’s take a peek at my night routine for some inspiration.

So, a solid night routine should most importantly start with shutting down from all electronics at least a half hour before you go to sleep.

Then, I like to:

  • stretch
  • wash my face
  • brush my teeth
  • read

Getting a good night sleep is the foundation to having a productive and successful day, so do your future self a favor by creating an awesome night routine!

TAKE ACTION:  Download your free Daily Planning Printable to plan for tomorrow during your night routine!

life habits to start

6.  Start A Morning Routine

There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning feeling tired, disheveled, and unmotivated.

I mean, starting your day off wrong throws off your entire day as you try to play catch up with your to-do list while drinking cup after cup of coffee.

So, having a solid morning routine is just as important as having a night routine to enhance motivation and productivity throughout the day.

You ended the night before on a positive and productive note and it would be a shame to not follow-through with that productivity the next morning

life habits to start

To start, make it a habit to wake up at the same time each morning.

A time, that is right, for you.

Pick a time that allows you to have a solid amount of sleep, but also gives you ample time in the morning to get your sh*t together before having to run out the door.

Because, giving yourself that extra time to wake up, stretch, make yourself a good breakfast, and go over the things you need to do that day will set the stage for a stress free day.

Need some inspiration for your morning routine?  Check out the 7 things I do to have productive + stress-free days.

TAKE ACTION:  Download your Morning Routine Printable for super productive days!

7.  Get Organized On Sunday’s

Sunday’s are meant for pajamas and football, right?

Wrong!

Sunday’s are meant for pajamas and planning!

(Are you catching onto the pattern of these habits?  I’m telling ya, taking a few minutes out of your day to plan for the future will make your life so. much. easier.)

I mean, there is nothing worse than waking up late for work, rushing around to find clean clothes, and jetting out the door without breakfast.

Cue an unsuccessful day, amiright?

Taking a small amount of time each Sunday to prepare for the upcoming week will make your life so much easier.

On Sunday’s I love to:

  • reevaluate my goals for the month
  • meal plan + food prep
  • plan my work outfits

This way, come Monday morning, when I wake up needing five more hours of sleep and three large cups of coffee, I can easily get dressed (in the dark), grab my lunch from the fridge and head out the door with time to spare.  (Cause Dunks, duh.)

TAKE ACTION:  Click and download your Sunday Routine Printable for easy meal planning and organizational help!

8.  Get On A Sleep Schedule

Ah, sleep…I would sleep twelve hours a day if I could.

Let’s just say, I am always DTN…down to nap.

This is one habit that I haven’t quite mastered yet but am working on each and every day.

Because, having a consistent sleep schedule is so key to functioning productively the next day. 

You see, our bodies are designed to do things consistently, and often function better when we do.

So, to start this habit, download one of those cool sleep monitoring apps and figure out how many hours of sleep you require to fully replenish and reload for a new day.

Then, based off of that number, set a bedtime and a wake-up time, and stick. to. it.

Give your body what it wants!

9.  Fit In Fitness

Getting old is no joke, and if you don’t continue to exercise, that process is going to be a long and painful one. 

There are so many awesome ways to fit in exercise, such as:

Exercising benefits you in sooo many different areas of your life, it’s a shame we don’t prioritize it better in our lives.

life habits to start

“But I don’t have the time to exercise.”

Such a classic line, and a valid one.  I often use it myself.

But in reality, we can, and should, find some extra time in our day to fit in some form of exercise.  Even it is just 30 minutes.

TAKE ACTION:  Schedule exercise into your planner 3x a week.

10.  Challenge Yourself

Just like your body needs to be exercised in order to stay fit and agile, so doesn’t your brain. 

Your brain is not unlike any other muscle in your body and needs to be used consistently to keep it operating smoothly and correctly.

So, make it a habit to workout your brain daily, even just for thirty minutes. 

You could,

Psh, you can even use Netflix to help your brain…just hit up their documentary section and learn something new!

11.  Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

There is this awesome book called “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” that every person everywhere should keep on their nightstand. 

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” is an entire book of short snippets to help you realize that there are more important things to life.  That often times, the things we stress about and get angry and upset about aren’t really that big of a deal.

See, practicing patience, kindness, and empathy will undoubtedly make your life simpler and stress-free.

So, try to think of all the things that stress you out, upset you, or infuriate you.

Now, look at the big picture – do those things really matter all that much?

Ten years, twenty years, or thirty years from now, will you even remember what it is that’s causing you such stress?  Probably not.

Create this habit of not sweating the small stuff by taking a few seconds to take a deep breath and reevaluate your situation when you’re feeling stressed out and overwhelmed.

Positive energy should be goals, always.

life habits to start

12.  Make Time For YOU

Now, even though we’re going to make it a habit to be more patient, kind, and understanding, it would be unrealistic to think that you’ll never feel stressed or upset again. 

Which is totally fine!  As long as you know how to manage those feelings.

Negative feelings are always temporary when you make it a habit to quickly address and resolve those feelings.

life habits to start

My favorite way to destress is to break out my pamper routine.

I mean, we bust our butt’s on the daily and we deserve some us time, goddamit!

Now, this may be difficult for some people, but your happiness is just as important as the people’s around you and you deserve a break every now and then.

So, make it a habit to recognize when you need you time and actually take that time for you!  (Cuz nobody benefits from you when you’re burnt-out, sista!)

TAKE ACTION:  Click and download your Self Care Routine Printable and keep it handy for rainy days.

I think we can all agree that a stress-free life is a happier life.

I mean, who enjoys running around like a chicken with their head cut off?

Not me, that’s for sure!

Making it a habit to set up routines in multiple areas of my life has helped tremendously when it comes to staying more organized and less stressed, and has increased my overall satisfaction of life. 

So, I hope some of these habits can find a home in your life and bring you more organization and relaxation!

**Bonus Goodies:  Ever feel like there isn’t enough time in the day?

I know, starting twelve new life habits is much easier said than done.

Between juggling your work, your life, and your family, is there really time for anything else?  And, how are you supposed to stay on top of your daily habits without feeling overwhelmed and anxious?

I hear you loud and clear.  I was in this boat once, too.  Struggling to figure out how to make time for my personal growth while taking care of everything else.

I have something to help, though!  Something created by people who understand that you’re looking for practical solutions that will work in your busy world.

3 Reasons Why You Should Switch WordPress Hosts + How To Do It

Do you ever feel like you’re not getting the best bang for your buck when it comes to your hosting company?

Me too.  And is why I made the (fantastic) decision to switch from Bluehost to TMDHosting during the early stages of my blog.

Now, there were three main reasons I felt I wasn’t getting the most from my hosting company – price, support, and speed.

Luckily, though, switching WordPress hosts is incredibly easy and 100% saved my website.

how to start a blog, how to start a blog for beginners, web hosting, website hosting, wordpress host, wordpress hosting, how to switch hosts, how to switch wordpress hosts, how to transfer hosts, blogging, blogging for beginners

Some of the links in this post are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission.

If you feel like you’re being duped by your hosting company (like I was), it’s definitely time to evaluate what your host is lacking and switch to a WordPress host who checks all your boxes.

To decide if your current WordPress host is living up to expectations, let’s go over three things today:

1.  Pricing

2.  Customer + Technical Support

3.  Website Speed + Responsiveness

You see, before I switched from Bluehost to TMDHosting, I was constantly encountering issues with my website such as lagging and crashing pages.

And, long story short (here’s the full story), I came to the conclusion that I was not getting what I was paying for and made the switch.

So, let’s see if you’re experiencing the same things with your current host and get you on your way to switching hosts so you don’t give up on blogging like I almost did!

1.  ARE YOU PAYING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR CURRENT WORDPRESS HOSTING?

So, there are many types of hosting plans available to you, depending on your blogs needs, including WordPress Hosting, Shared Hosting, and Cloud Hosting (my personal recommendation).

TMDHosting, Bluehost, and SiteGround all offer most of these hosting plans for the following prices:

TMDHosting

  • WordPress Hosting: $2.95/month
  • Shared Hosting: $2.95/month
  • Cloud Hosting: $5.95/month

Bluehost

  • WordPress Hosting: $3.95/month
  • Shared Hosting: $3.95/month
  • Cloud Hosting: Not Offered

SiteGround

  • WordPress Hosting: $3.95/month
  • Shared Hosting: $3.95/month
  • Cloud Hosting: $80.00/month

As you can see, TMDHosting offers the lowest prices overall for all of their hosting plans.

So, if you’re paying more than $2.95/month for WordPress/Shared Hosting or more than $5.95/month for Cloud Hosting, you 100% need to switch WordPress hosts.

2.  IS YOUR HOSTS TECHNICAL SUPPORT TEAM ACTUALLY SUPPORTIVE?

The main reason I left Bluehost is because I wasn’t getting the technical support that I was paying for.

If you didn’t know, your web host is responsible for managing all technical aspects of your WordPress blog.

So, if your website is crashing or you need to add a line of HTML code somewhere and can’t figure out how, your web host should be available to help you.

And, better yet, a good host will fix the problems for you (instead of relaying complicated steps to you so you can fix it yourself).

switch WordPress hosts

You pay for your host for a reason and you deserve to get what you are paying for.

Because I wasn’t getting what I was paying for from Bluehost, I switched to TMDHosting.

And, WOW!

TMDHosting’s customer + technical support teams are SPECTACULAR.

The other day, for example,  I needed to add “https” to the beginning of my domain name, so I put in a ticket with TMDHosting’s technical support team.

Within an hour, I got an email back telling me that they had added it for me and was good to go.

See, AMAZING.

If your WordPress host isn’t making your blogging life easier, it is seriously time to switch WordPress hosts.  (I 100% would have quit blogging if I stayed with Bluehost.)

3.  IS YOUR WEBSITE FAST?

We can all agree that we want fast websites that never crash, right?

I mean, there is nothing worse than excitedly clicking on a dope pin from Pinterest only to have to wait and wait and wait for the post to load.

So, how do you make sure that your website doesn’t do that?

You’ve gotsta host with a company that provides 32x faster website speeds than its competitors.

Yep, you read that right – TMDHosting is 32x faster than other hosting companies due to their crazy fast SSD servers. (Bluehost does not have these servers.)

TMDHosting also guarantee’s a 99.999% up-time for all their sites.

So, if your website is loading unbearably slow or is crashing frequently, switching WordPress hosts is the best thing you can do for your blogs reputation and success.

Speed up your social site in 15 minutes

HOW TO SWITCH WORDPRESS HOSTS

So, maybe you’ve been paying too much to host your blog.  Or, you aren’t getting the support and speed that you’re paying for.

Luckily for you, though, switching WordPress hosts is incredibly easy and can be done with ZERO downtime.

Now, my assumption moving forward is that you’re switching to TMDHosting for their low prices, awesome support, and crazy fast speeds.

So, to switch WordPress hosts, follow these simple steps:

1.  Visit TMDHosting + purchase one of their hosting plans using code “GREEN” to save 5% at checkout.

2. Put in a ticket with their technical support team asking them to transfer your WordPress site for you.

And….then…you’re done.

It really is as simple as that.  My website was transferred within 24 hours and my blog did not experience any downtime, as promised.

switch WordPress hosts

If you just started a blog and feel like you wanna rip your hair out every single time you sit down to work, I FEEL YOU.

I felt like this when I was hosting with the wrong company because my website never worked correctly.

And, if you feel duped by all the bloggers out there promoting Bluehost, I HELLA FEEL YOU.

I was and still am so confused by the promotion of Bluehost.

So, if you’ve been overpaying for hosting, have zero support from your host, or have a slow website, I urge you to make the switch.

I promise, you won’t regret it.

Did you make the switch to TMDHosting?  Tell us about your experience in the comments!

Happy blogging!

So, you’re thinking about starting a blog?

Starting a blog comes with following a lot of steps. (Download your checklist, here.)

It’s definitely not as easy as signing up for WordPress and jumping immediately into writing blog posts.

The first things that need to happen before you can design your website and start writing blog posts are:

1. Choosing and registering a domain name, and

2. Purchasing web hosting

WordPress hosting is super important to the success of your blog because it controls things like website speed and performance.

So, you’ll want to choose a reliable hosting company…and better, yet – an affordable one!

Today, we’ll talk about:

  • what WordPress hosting is
  • why you need WordPress hosting to make money blogging
  • who you should use for WordPress hosting to start a blog
  • how to start a blog with the best WordPress hosting site

Let’s dive in.

What is WordPress hosting?

WORDPRESS HOSTING -- WORDPRESS HOSTING TIPS -- BEST WORDPRESS HOSTING -- WORDPRESS HOSTING STARTING A BLOG

So, first things first, there are two different version of WordPress:  WordPress.com and WordPress.org.

WordPress.com is an extremely limited version of WordPress that does not give you many options to customize or monetize your blog.

Hint: if you want to earn money from your blog, don’t use WordPress.com – use WordPress.org.

WordPress.org is a self-hosted version of WordPress that allows you to add themes and plugins to customize your website and, most importantly, allows you to monetize your blog.

So, in order to use the self-hosted version of WordPress (WordPress.org), you need web hosting (a.k.a., WordPress hosting).  But, what in the damn heck is WordPress hosting?!

WordPress hosting is a service provided by a hosting company that manages all the technical aspects of running WordPress.

These types of things are all dependent on your WordPress host:

  • website speed
  • performance
  • up-time
  • security

You see, this is why it is so important to choose a reliable hosting company that provides top-notch customer and technical support to their customers.

Why do you need WordPress hosting for your blog?

Like I said, if you want to earn money from your blog, you need to use WordPress.org.  And, if you’re using WordPress.org, you need WordPress hosting.

So, in short, you need WordPress hosting if you want to earn money from your blog and become the self-employed blog boss that you’ve always dreamed of becoming!

But, for real, you should be rewarded for your blogging efforts and to do that you need to monetize your blog.

Monetizing your blog is the only way to earn a living from it and that is something you cannot do unless you have a self-hosted WordPress site.

So, once you’ve purchased WordPress hosting and have started your self-hosted WordPress blog, you can monetize your site in a number of ways, through:

  • Physical Products
  • Digital Products
  • eCourses
  • eBooks
  • Ads
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Services
  • Memberships
  • Merch

As you can see, investing in solid WordPress hosting for your blog is an important step toward launching your website and earning your first dollar.

Who should you use for WordPress Hosting?

I’ve hosted my blog with two different hosting companies:  Bluehost and TMDHosting.

See, if you’ve been doing research about how to start a blog, I am sure you’ve heard of Bluehost because I found out about Bluehost the same way – through other bloggers recommendations when researching how to start a blog.

Unfortunately, though, I had a horrible experience with Bluehost (which you can read about here), and switched to TMDHosting about six months into starting this blog.

Switching to TMDHosting was the best decision I ever made for this blog (besides getting the Divi theme) because they are affordable, reliable, professional, and all around awesome.

As I said, TMDHosting is a super affordable + reliable hosting option for your website, with prices starting at $2.95/month.

And, better yet, they have amazing customer service and technical support.

I couldn’t rave more about their support teams – who have always been there to answer my questions and fix any issues I am having with my website.

See, remember how I said your hosting company should manage all technical aspects of your WordPress blog?  Well, TMDHosting gets it all done.  

They will even install WordPress on your website for you, for free.

So, you’ve learned what WordPress hosting is, why you need it, and who the best blog hosting site actually is.

Now, it’s time to finally launch your killer blog!

To start a blog with TMDHosting, simply follow these simple steps:

1.  Choose and register your domain name (I recommend doing this with GoDaddy)

2.  Click here to purchase WordPress hosting from TMDHosting (save 5% with code ‘GREEN’)

3.  Put in a ticket to have TMD install WordPress on your website, for FREE

4.  Choose a theme to begin designing your website (I couldn’t live without the Divi theme)

5.  Install the necessary plugins (learn more about that, here)

6.  Begin creating + promoting kickass content!

Now, this is a brief overview of how to start a blog with TMDHosting, but for a much, much more in depth explanation, head on over to our how-to-start-a-blog post!

WORDPRESS HOSTING -- WORDPRESS HOSTING TIPS -- BEST WORDPRESS HOSTING -- WORDPRESS HOSTING STARTING A BLOG

If you feel duped by all the blog posts that have told you that you can start a blog for free, I’m sorry.

I felt that way, too.

Unfortunately starting a business comes with costs, but WordPress hosting is a necessary investment that you simply cannot avoid if you want to start a profitable blog.

Luckily, TMDHosting is super affordable!

(And seriously, you cannot beat their customer and technical support.  Hands down, the best company I’ve ever dealt with in terms of support.)

So, click here to easily get started with TMDHosting!  You won’t regret it!

TMDHosting Review 2019: The Best Blog Host To Start A Blog

Website hosting is an essential key to your blogging business if you want to own a self-hosted website.

So, in order to have a website with your own domain name – that you own – you gotta purchase hosting.  There is no way around it, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a ton of money to get the best blog hosting for your blog.

If you’re at the get-WordPress-hosting stage in your blogging game, you’ve come to the right place for our 2019 TMDHosting review to make the best decision for your new blog.

And, don’t forget to download your free how-to-start-a-blog checklist below for more insight on the steps to follow to start a money-making blog.

Are you ready to start a blog?  Then you're going to need some kickass blog hosting.  Choosing the best blog hosting site to start a blog with is crucial to the success of your blog, so don't take the decision lightly.  Use our brutally honest TMDHosting review for 2019 to make the best decision for your blog.  You'll fall in love with TMDHosting just as I did for their affordable prices, reliable hosting, kickass support teams, and fastest website speeds.  #TMDHostingReview

Like I said, purchasing hosting for your blog is necessary if you want a self-hosted site (which you totally do).

For this 2019 TMDHosting review, we’ll be looking at three things:

1. Plan options & pricing

2. Customer & techincal support

3. Extra goodies

TMDHosting is pretty impressive in all three of these areas and is why we use them to host our blog.

Remember, hosting for your blog does not need to break the bank and it should be a helpful resource in your journey to starting a blog.

(Unlike our experience with Bluehost, which you can read more about, here.)

And, if you find you’re overpaying for hosting, or that your hosting company isn’t very helpful, transferring your website to TMDHosting is a breeze (which I’ll explain how to at the end of this review!)

Don’t forget your 10-step checklist to start your money-making blog in no time!

1. TMDHosting’s Plans & Prices

All hosting companies offer more than one type of hosting plan, depending on your websites needs.

For example, TMDhosting offers:

WordPress hosting, starting at $2.95/month,

Shared hosting, starting at $2.95/month,

Cloud hosting, starting at $5.95/month (my personal recommendation – worth the extra money!),

VPS hosting, starting at $19.97/month, and

Dedicated servers, which start at $79.97/month.

When comparing these prices to other popular blog hosting companies, these are spectacular prices!

And, if you’re starting a blog or other small online business, one of the first three hosting plans (WordPress hosting, shared hosting, or cloud hosting) will be your best option, so don’t freak out about the services that are $20+ a month – you shouldn’t need those.

However, if you are not sure which hosting plan would be the best fit for your business, a TMD customer service rep is always available to help you make that decision.  (They message you upon visiting any page of their website, ready for all of your questions.)

As I mentioned, compared to other hosting companies, TMDHosting has the cheapest options to start a blog with, which you can see in your free printable, here!

2. TMDHosting’s Customer & Technical Support Teams

So, TMD has great hosting plans to offer – with affordable prices.  Score!  But, is there customer service and technical support any good?

Their customer and technical support teams are out of this world, AMAZING!

The second you arrive on TMDHosting’s website, you are greeted by somebody who is ready to work with you one-on-one to guide you along the entire process of purchasing hosting for your website.

Any questions you have, TMDHosting is ready to answer.

Honestly, they are so helpful and I never ever felt like I was being sold information just to sell me a product.  They genuinely care about their customers and want to make your experience stellar.

And, once you’ve purchased hosting from TMDHosting, you’ll experience their just-as-stellar (if not more stellar) technical support team.

If you have any issues with your website or setting things up in WordPress, they are there for you.  And quickly!  Simply put in a ticket with their technical support team and you’ll get an answer within the hour.

Working with their customer & technical support teams is what sold me on my love for TMDHosting.  They are so helpful and work year round to keep my website up and running!

3. Extra Goodies TMDHosting Offers With Purchase

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, TMD throws in a bunch of goodies.

With the purchase of any hosting plan, you also receive:

– Free application installations (like WordPress)

– Components installations (like WordPress plugins) (also free)

– Free template installation (like the Divi theme)

– Free application updates

– 32x faster website speeds than competitors

– 99.999% up-time

– Free domain name

– Free 24/7/365 support

That is a lot of free stuff, wouldn’t you agree?

It is super simple to get your WordPress blog up and running when you’re working with TMDHosting because they offer to do all the technical work for you – at no additional cost.

With TMDHosting, you don’t have to worry about all the technical aspects of blogging, so you can focus on the fun stuff – like designing your website and creating kickass content.

You can rest assured that starting and running your blog will be stress-free when you use TMDHosting – I guarantee it.

So, a lot of this post talks about the process of starting your blog and purchasing hosting for the first time.

But, if you already have a blog (hosted by another company) and are feeling like making the switch is the right choice, TMDHosting makes it crazy simple.

TMDHosting will transfer your website for FREE with ZERO DOWNTIME.

Simply purchase a hosting plan from TMDHosting and put in a ticket with their technical support team to begin the site transfer.

As I said, they’ll transfer your site at no additional cost to you and let you know when the process is finished.

I went through this process when I switched from Bluehost to TMDHosting and the process couldn’t have been simpler.  I had zero issues with my website during the transfer and since switching, my website has never crashed or operated slowly.

TMDHosting has been so great for the success of my blog – and it will be for your blog, too.

So, there you have it!  Our 2019 TMDHosting Review.

As you can tell, TMDHosting changed our blogging life.  Before, we were struggling to get by with Bluehost – constantly running into problems with site speed and uptime.

Then, we made the EASY + CHEAP switch to TMDHosting and quickly turned our blog into a money-making business.

If you want to launch a money making blog, you have to start with TMDHosting.

You won’t be disappointed.
