I´ve build Betweensports.net on WordPress. There´s two alternative. You could either use the free hosted platform at WordPress.com or you could find your own host. I use a local host in Sweden. If you want to go with one of the big Company you should check out GoDaddy. They are established in many countries. If you want another free option, then Blogger might be your choice.
There are tens of thousands of blog themes available for WordPress blogs. Betweensports.net uses the Ambition theme from Appfinite. They´ve many beautifully designed, responsive themes. If you want to check out a Marketplace with themes from many different designers you should head over to ThemeForest.
If you need help with some graphics, a logo or some other design element, check out 99design and DesignCrowd. These are companies that offer services from thousands of freelance designers from every corner around the World. Johnny Georgson at the DesignCrowd made the logo for Betweensports.net.
Tools and Services for Email Marketing
AWeber and MailChimp are the two major email providers. They offer similar email/newsletter management tools. Both are reliable and hugly popular. They have an excellent service if anything not goes at planed. I tried them both :-)
OptinMonster and SumoMe are similar tools to help you collect email addresses through a variety of popups, hello bars, and other innovative tools. OptinMonster is used for Betweensports.net.
