Say the words “Blog Maintenance” and you will get a “nervous roll of the eyes” from most bloggers!
I understand it’s not as glamorous as hanging out on Facebook or writing those awesome viral posts. I get it, maintenance isn’t fun…but it is a necessary evil that all bloggers have to bite the bullet, so to speak, and get shit done!
Why do you have to maintain your blog?
Well, to keep out hackers, to have it running quickly and correctly, to make sure you’re running the latest plugins, themes, and WordPress, keeping your spam comments emptied, making sure that your links aren’t broken, and that you don’t have any malware and the list goes on and on! If you don’t maintain your blog all kinds of horrible problems can develop and they can happen pretty quickly.
So, if you’re here then you must want to know how to maintain your blog like a boss! Pull up a chair, grab a glass of wine, and get ready for me to drop some knowledge on you!
Have you ever gone to a slow site with broken links? Bet you didn’t stay there long. It’s so annoying to go to a site that takes FOREVER to load! I click right off and I bet you do too! What about those sites that make McAfee sit up and beg? You know if they start with a WHOA!!!!!!!!!! You don’t want to go in there. Then it whispers quietly, “you might get a browser STD! Sssshhhh, don’t tell anyone!”
Of course, you won’t be paying me, or anyone else for that matter, to fix your site. You’ll also keep your web hosting pricing down because the less garbage you have on your site the less storage it’s going to take therefore SAVINGS!
When a Brand comes looking at your website in consideration for sponsored posts or influencer jobs or even a product ambassador they want their product to be shown in the very best light so it behooves them to check sites out before they hire someone. If your site is not running quickly, looking its best, or you have links that are broken they are going to give you a big fat NO!
I don’t want that to happen to you! Last night, I created a brand new PDF that entails my own monthly maintenance plan. Everything from What I do, What I use, and How I do it is included. That’s right, everything that I do for my maintenance plan clients & my own personal sites I’m going to share with you. Why because I sincerely want you to put your best foot forward and shine!
On the other hand, maybe you’ll realize how crazy busy your life is or maybe you’ll think about the last time you actually maintained your site and you’ll realize how much easier it is just to pay me the $119 FOR A WHOLE YEAR which by the way comes to about $10.00, a month (the price of a Starbuck’s coffee) and you’ll never have to think about maintenance again, but if not, it’s okay! We’ll still be friends…my blog will just look better than yours! Just kidding…kind of.
