Resources for Homesteaders

I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that hopeful Homesteaders/Farmer can use to see the products and services that I use on our homestead. The list will be continually evolving as I find different resources that are worth mentioning.

I thought it would be helpful to create a section that Homestead/Farm bloggers can use to see the products and services that I use with my blog.

bluehost Bluehost is our hosting company. They offer a slick and easy way to get up and running with your blog on WordPress. Bluehost has free domain name registration, is amazingly affordable, and is the perfect place to start. The whole hosting-domain-Wordpress-website-language-stuff can be kind of confusing at first. Check out the How to Start a Homestead/Farm Blog page if you want a step-by-step run down of how to start your own blog using Bluehost.
wordpress Free Themes for WordPress – WordPress has thousands of free themes available if you’re not interested in purchasing a “premium” theme right away. It’s a great place to start if you’re looking to start your blog without spending a lot of money right off the bat. Be sure to do some research and check the theme’s rating before you download it and install it onto your blog. I would recommend looking for themes with a four or five star rating.
Canon EOS T5 Canon EOS Rebel T5 – I recently upgraded to the Canon EOS Rebel T5 after using a Canon EOS Rebel for several year (and before that a Canon Powershot for a few years). Not only does the T5 shoot incredible pictures, but it also shoots really incredible HD video. But remember, the best camera is the one that you have with you.
Canon 50mm f1.8 Canon 50mm f/1.8 – An outstanding lens! $200 cheaper than the 50mm f/1.4 it’s not too far out of reach for the beginner. This lens is considered a prime lens, which means that it doesn’t zoom in or zoom out. You’re only able to shoot at 50mm which works when you are trying to get that close up shot.
SanDisk 64GB Extreme SD Memory Card – The memory card is the necessary evil of the Photo business and you don’t want to skimp on this part of the deal. You want fast because you don’t want to have to stop and wait while the card is saving to get your next shot. You also want lots of space and this bad boy fits for both! It’s also great when shooting video.
