BLOGGING & WRITING
WordPress – A powerful and very popular content management system (CMS). WordPress is the blogging platform that I use for this site.

Dynamik – Website Builder for Genesis Theme.
World Wide Web Consortium – The latest in Web Standards.
Kindle Direct Publishing – Instantly publish your ebook for free!
HostMonster – This is the hosting and domain registration service I’ve been using for the past 5 years.

Camtasia – This is the video editing software that I use. I downloaded and purchased it about a month ago and am very happy with it. Apart from having multiple video tracks, you can also use it for screen capturing purposes with it’s recording feature.
Windows Movie Maker – This is the program I used when I first got started with video production. You can only perform very basic operations on this program. If you are on PC, it should already be installed on your windows operating system.
The Meejah Channel – This is where I learned basic video editing for Windows Movie Maker.
Nokia Lumia 1020 – I use my cell phone for video blogging. The Lumia 1020 has a camera grip for a tripod that you can purchase. I will look for a more professional blogging camera soon.
