Welcome to my “Contact” page! There are a few reasons that I can think of for why you may have ended up here:
- You just really wanted to say hello (which is always welcome)
- You have a question about starting a blog
- You are stuck and need help getting your blog installed
All of these are perfectly good reasons to contact me, and I am happy to help.
Have a Problem? I’m Happy to Help
- I have been setting up WordPress sites since 2007, and have installed many. I’ve made my own themes and I’ve also made several plugins. So, I’m pretty good at this stuff.
- I have been working with PHP and MySQL (the platform that WordPress runs on) for over 15 years now. So technical questions are great.
- I truly enjoy seeing people start their own websites. I do get a commission when someone purchases hosting from my site (to help maintain the site), but you certainly don’t need do that to get help from me. I don’t mind if you already have hosting or want to set up a free blog. I am more than happy to help.
I usually try to answer right away if possible, but definitely within 2 business days.
Also, feel free to message me on on twitter @badijones with questions.
