Not really because your hash is as secure as your simple password. If someone wants to brute force your password, then they can learn (like by reading this post) that you use hashes of simple string. So it becomes as hard as brute forcing simple passwords.
You are better off using a random password generator, and securing them with a password manager locked by a long and hard to guess password. You only have one, so it’s not so bad.
