Web Tools

Cloudup – Great way to share screenshots & streaming media. It’s invite-only, so go signup & get on the wait list.

Browse Happy – A quick way to check that you’re using the most recent versions of your browsers, with links to update if you’re not.
Placehold.it – Image placeholders to use before you’ve got the real images ready to go.
Google Fonts – Huge, great collection of fonts to choose from and easily add to your site.

PicMonkey – Simple web-based photo editing with some fun features.

Web Hosting

WordPress.com (of course!) – If you’re looking to for ease-of-use and full WordPress support built right in, WordPress.com is a great way to go. Great up time stats and fantastic resources! Also, the Happiness Engineers are fantastic, if I do say so myself.
A Small Orange – Excellent hosting experience paired with a homegrown feel. Their focus is on making people happy and it shows. Great place for your self-hosted WordPress.org site.
