New Here? Welcome!
Hi, my name is Michelle and I started Divi Soup back in January 2016 to help people like you build better sites with Divi. Since then Divi Soup has become one of the most popular Divi related blogs online, providing not only tutorials, tips & tricks but also child themes, layouts and community. Whatever stage you’re at in your Divi journey, you’re sure to find something helpful here.
A little bit about me
Since starting Divi Soup in 2016 I have gone from working full time with clients as a freelancer, to running a full time Divi based education business though Divi Academy.
I am a wife and mother of two gorgeous girls and in my previous life worked predominantly in marketing and training, winning several industry awards for business excellence, environmental initiatives and training programs. Some time ago I vowed never to own another business suit or business card or have a boss ever again. So far, so good!
If you are interested in hearing more about how I got started with Divi and what I do now, you can take a look at my interview with Nathan B Weller for the Divi Nation podcast from Elegant Themes.
What are recipes?
Recipes are what I call tutorials, they live in the Kitchen. Here you will find creative ideas, useful tips and clever tricks to help you get the most out of Divi. I try to focus on creating solutions using the native Divi modules and only CSS wherever possible. There is nothing wrong with plugins, but if an effect can be achieved without one, then I have done my job.
These are some of my most popular recipes and therefore a good place to start if you are new to Divi Soup. Alternatively, head on over to the Kitchen and take a look at what’s cooking…
Courses & Membership
My Divi related courses are designed to teach you new skills or expand on the ones you already have so that you can charge more and earn more with Divi. #TheClub is a monthly subscription based membership site where you get access to a new unique Divi resource each and every week.

Detailed but bite-sized lessons explaining everything you need to know in an easy to follow format.

Divi Soupies Facebook Group
The best thing about Divi is, well Divi! But the second best thing is the amazingly supportive community that has grown around an awesome product supported by an even more awesome development team at Elegant Themes.
You will find Divi lovers all over social media, but we mainly hangout on Facebook where there are a number of groups dedicated to helping and sharing all things Divi. The Divi Soupies Facebook group is one of them and I’d love you to come and join the conversation (exclusive Divi freebies included ).
Tools I use in my business
I often get asked about the tools, plugins and Divi theme resources I use to run my business and I never recommend anything I haven’t used. These are my most trusted resources and I couldn’t run my business without them.
How could we not start with Divi, the foundation of my business! Just in case you have been hiding under a rock somewhere, Divi is the ultimate WordPress Theme & Page Builder Plugin. Created by Elegant Themes, when you join their annual or lifetime membership, you get access to every one of their themes, but Divi is the only one you will ever need!.

Flywheel is managed WordPress hosting for web freelancers and agencies. If you would rather be developing sites than bothering with hosting issues, Flywheel is in my opinion the best choice. Not only is the support second to none, using Flywheel allows you to utilise staging sites and free SSL and it also negates the need for bulky security, backup and optimisation plugins.
