Welcome to the RMX Tools section, a list of tried and tested tools and resources that I highly recommend to rapidly improve different aspects of your life.
I have tested everything on this page and all the items below have helped me to optimize my life, in one way or another. By sharing them, I hope you can do the same.
For some items, if you purchase them via a link below, I’ll earn a small commission (at zero extra cost to you). It helps me to cover the cost of running this blog for you, but absolutely no pressure obviously. I only ever endorse products that I have personally used and benefited from.
For an epic blog
WordPress The most popular blogging platform in the world, and the one I use for this blog. It’s 100% free and super easy to set up.
Genesis Framework This is the framework I’m using for this blog. It lets you quickly and easily build incredible websites with WordPress. Whether you’re a novice to WordPress or have more advanced skills, Genesis gives you the clean, elegant and search-engine-optimized foundation to catapult WordPress to places you never thought it could go.
StudioPress Themes for WordPress Simple and clean themes for the Genesis framework to give your blog the perfect look and feel. I’m using the Modern Portfolio Theme on this blog. If you like it, go get it ;)
Thesis for WordPress If Genesis isn’t for you, then you can check out Thesis. This is the framework I used before Genesis and I can honestly say, there’s very little difference between them. It’s a matter of personal choice, as both are awesome. I would recommend picking one or the other though, as they’re the best options for fast and easily customizable blogs or websites.
Bluehost This is the hosting service that I use for this blog and every other website that I have. You can get hosting as low as $4.95/month. Great support, 24/7.
Easy Share My favourite social media plugin for WordPress. Easily add funky social sharing functionality to your site in a few minutes.
Building an email list
Aweber The most popular email opt-in service and e-mail broadcasting service. I use Aweber for all my newsletters and mailing lists. It’s easy to use and loves WordPress too.
