It takes a lot of work to set up a blog. Sometimes authors and bloggers just want to focus on writing and leave all the technical stuff to someone else.
That is where I come in! While I also am an author and blogger, I love helping other authors and bloggers set up and maintain their websites.
This page contains various service options which I offer to authors and bloggers such as yourself. I can do almost anything for your blog, from a basic WordPress installation, all the way up to doing all of the regular monthly maintenance and design needs that you might have.
Read more about each WordPress Service Option below:
If you are a brand new blogger, or are an established blogger who is looking to start a new blog, this is the option for you.
I will install WordPress, and also add some basic security and SEO settings to your blog to help you get started the right way.
If you are currently running a blog on WordPress.com or Blogger.com and want to move to a self-hosted WordPress.org installation, this blog migration services brings over all your posts, pages, comments, and images from your old blog to your new. I will also create domain forwarders so that you don’t lose web traffic.
This migration service can also be used by those who already run a self-hosted WordPress.org blog with one hosting company, but want to move to a different hosting company. (Read more about this sort of WordPress migration here.)
As you may know, the way your blog appears to readers is often just as important as what sort of content you put on your blog. If your blog is boring, difficult to navigate, or hard to read, those people who visit your blog may not read what you have written or return again to read more.
So it is vitally important to make sure you blog looks nice and works well. I can help you do this by installing a Theme of your choice onto your blog and customizing it to your satisfaction.
For this, I have two basic options: The basic theme install is $50. I will install a theme of your choice, and do 1 hour of customization work on your blog, which basically includes just changing some font and link colors, and adding a background or header image.
If you want more work to be done on your blog, you will need a full customization. Prices for a full customization start at $300 for 10 hours of work. I can usually complete a full customization in 10 hours, so very rarely will it cost more than that.

Ongoing WordPress Maintenance, Design, and Troubleshooting
Sometimes authors and bloggers want to focus on nothing but their writing. They do not want to waste time fiddling with WordPress widgets, tweaking PHP or HTML code, or trying to figure out how to get their WordPress site to do what they want.
I work with many authors and bloggers to provide ongoing, monthly maintenance, design, and troubleshooting for their blog. There is no minimum monthly charge for this, and you only pay for what you use.
So you want to change the location, appearance, colors, and links on your WordPress menu, but don’t know how? No problem! I can help you with that.
You want to add an email newsletter signup form to the header section of your front page? No problem! I can help you with that.
You want someone to manage all the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for your WordPress blog? No problem! I can help you with that.
You want to keep your blog secure and maintained? No problem! I can help you with that.
Basically, if you want it done on your site, you can just email me, and I will take care of it as soon as possible. The rate for this service is $40 per hour, and is billed in 15 minute increments, and there is no minimum monthly charge.
