    WordPress Site Designer and Web Content Writer

    United States - Last active: 12/09/2006

    For 10 years, I have been building and managing websites with the WordPress platform. Some sites were static HTML to WordPress conversions, and others were built entirely on WordPress. Sites I've built have included e-commerce sites, blogs, and standard sites using WordPress as a CMS. Building sites with WordPress requires me to leverage my knowledge of PHP, MySQL, HTML, and CSS. Not only do I design and build sites with WordPress, but I can host and maintain existing websites. I can manage the entire website building process from design to launch (and beyond). Social media is crucial for increasing brand awareness, and I can help you establish a social media presence for your website. I am looking for opportunities to help you build (or increase) your web presence. I also have 10 years of experience as a technical writer and software trainer (and more recently as a blogger), so I can be your guide as you create content for your new site. If that seems daunting to you, I can train you how to use WordPress, or provide web content on your behalf.
