A friendly place to find help & encourage one another

Friend and recent interviewee Sarah Lewis from Blogging Expertise seems to be riding the wave of success lately.  She got tons of inquiries from the ProBlogger post I wrote about her SEO coding skills, went on to get hit with a StumbleUpon surge for her follow up post, and soon she will be releasing her own set of WordPress themes (which look AMAZING, I might add!!).

Sarah has a problem we all love to have: she’s got too much work on her hands. :D

She’s seeking someone to work with some of her regular clients - here’s the scoop in her own words:

I’m in search of a person to do blog maintenance for my regular clients–I want to focus on other areas of my business, so I’d like to refer them to someone who can help with small blog tweaks, answering questions, that kind of thing.  I’m looking for someone who will work directly with the clients and bill them directly (I’ll be out of the picture entirely).

The ideal person would have a solid understanding of WordPress and TypePad from a user perspective (you don’t need to write plugins or anything like that).  Basic HTML and CSS skills are also needed, and if you can create simple graphics, that’s even better still.

Personality-wise, it’s important that you enjoy lots of small tasks and are patient with less tech-savvy folks.  Occasional phone calls are the norm and the clients expect quick responses to their emails.

It’s been really cool to watch Sarah take her business to the next level as I have gotten to know her since we met last summer. I know that I have quite a few readers who would be a great fit for this work (I won’t name names, but you know who you are!!). So I wanted to help spread the word and spread the work!

    I can completely relate to Sarah’s predicament! It sounds like Sarah will have plenty of great candidates to select from.

    Sarah - feel free to contact me if you want to compare notes and strategies - it sounds like we are on parallel paths.
