Have you searched for the PERFECT theme for your blog, but the colors were off, or you hated the fonts, or you wanted a certain widget and it wasn’t included? That was me when I started blogging, and I new exactly NOTHING! Now it’s hard for me to believe, but I have been blogging for 5 years!
I got stuck so many times trying to figure things out all by myself, since I didn’t want to put any money into my blog at first. Now I look back at all the hours I spent learning and trying to design, fix, or adjust something on my blog, and I think how wonderful it would have been to have a friend I could chat with, and/or consult with who knew more than I did about setting up a blog.
So now I’m motivated to help you so the process will be smoother and less stressful in your blogging journey.
When I started blogging, I started on Blogger, and then 3 years in, I switched to a self hosted WordPress blog, and then a few months into that, I started using the Genesis Framework from Studiopress. With a very small budget for blogging, I’ve had to learn a lot on my own, and have been able to help others with questions they’ve had on their blogs, and how to do certain things.
Soooo, I’ve decided to offer my help to other bloggers that have questions, and need help with making changes on their blogs. Since I’m just starting this service, I’m charging introductory prices! 😀
$30 for 30 minutes of work or consultation (with 30 minute minimum): All payments are through PayPal.
My skill set is primarily with self hosted wordpress blogs on the Genesis Framework, but if your blog is different, I’m open to taking questions and work, and will let you know up front if it’s outside of my abilities.
