AWeber to handle your precious email list
They work hard to get your emails to reach your subscribers by fighting spam, dodging filters, playing nice online. Support is rock-solid. They are proactive with impressive updates that I didn’t even know I wanted or needed. While free, other services are so jungly, tangly and you end up monkeying around forever, going bananas. Ehem. 😉
BigStock for excellent images
You get stock photos and vector art, videos and more for a very low cost. Their website is super easy to use and rich with material. I suggest getting credits and for your website, all you’ll need are low-res images.

I recommend just picking out one good font to suit the feel of your website and use it everywhere. It’s free and the collection is big and growing.
