Love this podcast!

I am so happy I found this podcast and MaAnna’s website! She keeps us up to date on everything Wordpress and breaks it down in a way that’s easy to comprehend for a non-tech person (like me).

Empowering DIY Support for Bloggers Using WordPress

I am a huge fan of MaAnna Stephenson of Blogaid and everything she does to support and empower bloggers and WordPress website owners. She stays on top of the latest SEO, safety, plugins and best practices for DIY site owners and shares them each week in Tips Tuesday. Her how-tos and step-by-step videos and blog posts make it so easy for me, a non-technical person, to keep my site healthy. Highly recommend!

This podcast is a MUST for bloggers

I have learned so much about the technical side of my site from listening to MaAnna’s teaching for the past several years. Before BlogAid, my site had tech glitches quite often, was slow to load and bogged down with unnecessary plugins. Now my site runs smoothly...but if something does go wrong, I have the knowledge to be able to get it working myself. MaAnna also keeps listeners up-to-date on all the tech news, so we can be proactive with our site. Listening to the BlogAid podcast is the best 20 minutes I spend on my business each week!
