Here’s the thing about Blogger. It’s so often maligned, but so dang easy to use. However, I finally accepted the fact that if I wanted to take The Maker Mom to the next level, I’d need to move it to WordPress. And what that really meant is hiring someone to do the job.
When I was young businesswoman, I took pride in doing everything myself. Now that I’m older, I realize it’s more efficient to hire out certain jobs. Sure, I could spend hours reading up on doing the site transfer and twice as many hours freaking out that I’d break the site or somehow lose the 500 posts and 950 images associated with my blog. Or I could hire someone who knows what she’s doing for this one-time task.
I chose the latter. Even better, I hired an old blog friend to do the job! It’s nice knowing that I could afford to hire out, but even nicer to support a friend in her growing business. Thanks to Kimberly Coleman (of Mom in the City) of RK Responsive Design for setting The Maker Mom up in new digs.
The process was so smooth and easy that I wish I’d done it a year ago. Kimberly was wonderful to work with and as the name suggests, super responsive. And now I’ve got a mobile-friendly big girl WordPress site.
