I discovered this app on the day of my comprehensive exams, and it’s been the single greatest thing of my life. Meditation saved me, and Headspace showed me how.
I built Roostervane on Bluehost, and I love them. Their customer support is fantastic and they’ve always been great to work with. I totally recommend them for starting a blog or website! (See my newest Bluehost project here)
Roostervane is currently hosted on Kinsta. It’s fantastic and fast, but also a little more pricey.
This blog only exists because of Skillshare. I learned SEO, Web Design, and more on there, while Carolyne (who designed the Roostervane logo) used it to become a graphic designer. It’s amazing for would-be creatives.
I’ve tried different email software over time. I really believe this is the best and it’s really easy to use.
Roostervane is built on Elementor. It’s a fantastic drag and drop page builder that works with WordPress and makes it really easy to create beautiful pages.
