So my news this week is I finally launched a new site, WPLift.Support provides complete support and maintenance plans complete with unlimited jobs for a monthly fee. I wrote up an introduction to the service here where I also talked about how I created the site and which plugins I chose to run the various components of it.
So far, feedback has been good and we have had quite a bit of interest, I will keep WPLift readers updated about the site as it goes on and plan to do some transparency reports which are all the rage at the moment, once we have things to report!
The sun is shining here in the UK and I'm off tomorrow to take part in a Tough Mudder, hopefully talk to you again next week :) Have a great weekend everyone!
