I have been blogging since 2007. This blog started out a with a different name, but I have been around online since then. After blogging about my family for a few years, I decided to try using blogging as a creative outlet. I got rid of most of my previous posts, and started fresh sharing ideas and projects.
Six months ago, I was still blogging with a different name and using Blogger. My traffic kinda sucked even though I had been doing this for years. Sarah Kimmel, the internet and tech genius, helped me realize that if I ever wanted my blog to go anywhere, I needed to change several things. With her help, in just a few days my blog was transferred to WordPress, and had a much better flow and aesthetic appeal.
Sarah has not paid me to write this post. She doesn’t even know I am writing it. I have had several people email me and ask me about the changes I have made and how I did it so fast. The cool thing is Sarah has helped so many other people take their blog to the next level too. She even recently launched Bloggers Help Desk, a company catered to help blogs with any kind of technical concerns or desired improvements. It is a very affordable way to have stress-free help and assistance with any type of blogging changes that you want to make.
Here is a list of just a few things Sarah has helped me with on my blog:
Changing the font, colors, and overall layout of my blog. She gave me tons of layout choices and then put up with a billion emails about little changes I still wanted.
-Creating a Facebook page, and adding a Facebook sidebar to my blog.
-Uploading plugins and getting them to work flawlessly.
-Linking my blog posts to both Facebook and Twitter.
-Another billion emails answered about adding photos, video, and how to embed code into WordPress.
-Advertising. This was a really hard one for me since most ads are required to be “above the fold” on your blog. Sarah had to completely change my layout code to make it work, and she did an amazing job.
-Fixed crawler errors. I still don’t know what this means.
-Added widgets to my sidebar.
-Adding widgets on my Facebook page. I wanted to give away photo files, and she whipped it right up after spending hours myself trying to figure it out.
-Sarah also answered a ton of questions I had about following by blog’s traffic. She helped to read and understand where people are coming from, and how to tag and label my posts making them more searchable.
-And totally not related to general blogging, Sarah has taught me so much about networking, gaining traffic, and most importantly of all, being myself and enjoying writing for my blog.
There are so many other amazing things Sarah can do as well. If your blog is ever hacked she totally knows how to get the perpetrators out, and how to strengthen the security on your blog. She is also totally honest and upfront about what her services cost. You can easily email her and ask her for a quote on what you want to have done. She has a monthly service option, or you can just pay as you go.
Whether you want to go pro, or just have a personal blog that reflects who you are aesthetically, Sarah can help you achieve your website goals.
I can honestly say there is no way I would have been found by a national TV show if my blog had still been what it was six months ago. I feel like it has come so far, and I still have goals for it I know Sarah will help me achieve.
All right, I am done. Now I need to go email Sarah because I want to know what an SEO Roadmap is. And I like to bug her in wee hours of the night.
