How to Use your iPhone to Post to a WordPress Blog

Most owners of websites want to blog but can’t find the time, energy or content.  Is this you?

I work with many business owners who have a self-hosted WordPress installation, and who are gung-ho about adding a blog to their website.  We set up the blog area, they write a few posts, and then they stop.  Eventually, the blog or news area looks outdated which is not good for bringing in new business. There are several solutions to this issue if you are not finding the time to post:

  1. Ask someone/a few employees in your company to write posts
  2. Ask other people who are experts in your field to guest blog. You can set up those users as contributors in WordPress.
  3. Hire a content writer
  4. Make it easy to post 

Here we are going with number 4 – Make it easy to post by using your iPhone!

Backup My Website? The Answer is YES.

Now that you have built a beautiful, informative website, you want don’t want to lose all that work.

You may have heard the saying, “Your data is only as good as your backup.”  This is very true, even in the case of your web hosting.

Doesn’t backup come with my hosting?

Most service providers do not back up your site. The reason for this is simple:  each type of site needs to be backed up in a different way.  Your WordPress site needs to be backed up in two ways: the database AND the file structure.      Not all websites need this exact way to back up.

How to Choose a Host

I always get this question from clients and friends and acquaintances:  who should I use for hosting?  How should I choose a host?  Should I host my website at my company?

There are so many choices the answer to this is like saying, “What kind of apple should I use for baking in my apple pie?”  Sure, there are certain considerations for the apples:  are they firm?  mushy?  tart?  sweet?   large?  Many people have different opinions on this.  But, if you choose an apple, bake it with some nice brown sugar and spices with a super buttery crust, it will come out pretty good and people will love it.
