The Original House of Ideas family
The original team of blogging partners, and tech team members that brought House of Ideas to life.

House of Ideas is a platform that was built to create synergy between you, the creative, lifestyle, and professional blogger with others like you, and with us, the digital marketing, WordPress, and technology experts.

You obsess over ideas, projects, and recipes to turn a dream into a hobby, a hobby into a side gig, and eventually a side gig into a full-time business. We obsess over hosting platforms, building complex plugins in a creative but highly useful way, and how to boost blog traffic to help you survive your blogging business over a long period of time.

You have years and years of practice in all things creative, we have it in all things technical.

We’ve now been in business for 3 years, because we’ve helped over a dozen bloggers — some of the biggest names in the industry — get more traffic, make more money, and worry a whole lot less about the state of their blog.

We do what we advise others

Bloggers trust us, because we follow the advice we give. We’ve led high-performing SEO teams at many Fortune 500 companies, like AutoZone, Staples, Oriental Trading Company, Pantone to name a few. We use House of Ideas to share the same winning strategies, techniques, and time-tested principles that work. This Start Here page you’re reading exists, because we advise all of our blogger friends to build one. We recommend only plugins and other companies that we know and use.

We serve bloggers by:
