I'm needing an experienced programmer and wordpress expert to maintain my wordpress blog. (13 year old site)
More specifically - make sure all plugins are current, backups are made, wordpress is updated, optimize the database if needed, troubleshoot if the site goes down, work on page load speed - and just general "care" of the site. I also have a forum in vBulletin and it would need to be kept current as well. There are times I might need something cosmetic done - that I don't know how to do and would ask that you help me with things like that.
When things are running well - your job would be very easy. Cake for someone of your skill level.
An example of what you'd deal with at the most...
Today I installed a plugin and it took my whole site/server down. I don't know what happened - and I would need someone to troubleshoot something like this.
My last programmer worked for me for 3 years and recently was hired full time at another job and can no longer help me.
I am thinking you shouldn't need to spend but 3-4 hours a week on my site - if that.
My budget is $300 a month.
But I need someone trustworthy, knowledgeable and helpful. This would be an ONGOING job if we work well together.
Let me know if you are interested.
