What is WordPress?

WordPress is a blogging software or content management system (CMS) used by millions of people around the world to run their websites and blogs. Users can opt to use WordPress.com to host their site or they can use the WordPress.org software on a self-hosted website.

What I Can Do

N

Installation

If you have a domain and hosting, I can assist you in installing WordPress. Most hosting companies provide WordPress for free. I am familiar with: GoDaddy, HostGator, DreamHost.

N

Themes and Plugins

Once you’ve chosen your theme, I can assist you with installing it on your WordPress site. If you will be utilizing plugins, I can assist with installing these as well.

N

Theme Setup

Unfortunately, once the theme is installed, configuring to look like the demo is a completely different story! I can assist you in setting up the theme with your content so that everything works as desired.

Minor Graphics Work

Very often when setting up WordPress sites, minor graphical tweaks are needed such as cropping, resizing, and rearranging. I can assist you in making sure all the images are working properly.

What I Won’t Do

M

Independently Alter Code

While I have successfully implemented code changes to WordPress sites on hundreds of occasions, I cannot determine the proper steps on my own. In short: I’m not a programmer.

M

Shop for Your Theme

Technically, I can do this, but knowing how long it takes for me to shop for my own themes, I’m not willing to spend so much time shopping for a theme for someone else.

M

Logo Design

While I am able to work on implementing a logo design, the creation of the logo itself is not within my graphical capabilities. If you would like a company logo, you will need to consult another source.

M

Provide Website Content

I do not provide the site’s overall theme, written copy, images, hi-resolution images, and graphics. You are responsible for providing all of the above for implementation onto your website.
