On this page, you will find a list and description of the resources that I use to create and maintain this site.

The resources are divided into the following categories: hosting, images, emails, planners, and Books, Courses, and other Learning Resources


SiteGround Web Hosting

SiteGround Hosting

SiteGround Hosting is the most fundamental resource that I use.  Without a host, I would not be able to maintain my site.  The investment it would take to maintain my own servers and support for them would be too much for me to get started.  SiteGround takes care of all that for me!  Click on SiteGround Hosting to get started or see the services they offer.

Images Resources:


Empowering the world to design

Canva is the resource I use for all the graphics within the Paladin site.  I am so pleased to announce that I have been invited to join Canva’s inner circle!  This membership provides me with incredible insights into using Canva.

Currently, I am doing side-by-side comparisons of two email resources:

  1. MailerLite
  2. Drip
