OH, bloggers. If you haven’t heard about Studiopress Sites, I’m excited to be the first to tell you. It’s life changing. And if you’ve considered starting a blog but are intimidated by the tech stuff (WHICH YOU SHOULD BE IT IS CONFUSING) now there is a solution.
I’m not a web programmer or designer, which is why I’ve crashed this little blog of mine a million times. Most recently: Tuesday.
“OH! I like the way that looks!” So, I followed the instructions to improve something or other and obviously, did not do it correctly, because my entire site crashed and I had a terrifying error message when I tried to look at it or log in. Awesome.
Yes, that was a Borat joke. Or Wayne’s World joke. The point is: it is not awesome crashing your blog.
Studiopress made an announcement last week they are offering an all inclusive service which will include SEO, web hosting, design and a bunch of other stuff making my hobby a whole lot less frustrating.
It reminded me of this story I shared on medium a few weeks ago…
A Self-Guided Flying Blog that Delivers Readers to the Final Destination
On our way to school, my son suggested that we commute in a flying car, which would have a pink button that, when pressed twice, would spring wings and a turbobooster to fly over the slow-poke cars in front of us, bypassing all of the stop lights, and onward to our destination (his school). It would operate just like Siri: mommy would not drive this car, it would automatically take us to the drop-off line. Yes! I want one of those. I also wish I could have the same functionality for website design. It would be so much more efficient to say, “Wordpress, make this site functional, easy to navigate, clean, and pretty.” Instantly, the site would be cleaned up with crappy blog posts replaced by click-worthy blog posts all laid out in a visually pleasing, functional design that leads readers from one article to the next until they arrive on a page to make a purchase. This would be a profitable blog.
And, like magic, Studiopress delivers this outlandish promise.
I’m still in charge of content (crappy or otherwise) but Studiopress will do the rest — which means no frustrating calls or chats trying to figure out which plugin has caused the latest crash.
In other news, I’m starting a new blog. Or reviving an old blog, TheGoodTasteGuide.com. I’ve done this before and I’m doing it again, this time on StudioPress Sites. I don’t think I’ve built up an ardent following of fans here, so I’m abandoning this blog probably in favor of travel, wine, style (yes, still kids style!! My most popular topic over here BY FAR, which I recently discovered on Google Webmaster Tools) and design, and documenting building and decorating our new house. Anyway, check it out. Follow me. Marvel at my brilliance. Or not, but if you have your own blog… check out Studiopress’s new service. Perhaps it’s just me… but it’s everything I’ve wished for since I started blogging.
Make the switch. Or start that blog you’ve always considered.
Trust me: StudioPress Sites is the answer. It’s like a tech team and a design team, all wrapped into one service that is the same amount you’d pay for simple hosting. Check out StudioPress Sites→
