Are you ignoring your WordPress Updates?

You're risking everything as a digital business owner if you are....

Hi, I’m Renee & I’m the Chief Geek around here.

I’ve been managing, updating and tweaking WordPress websites for 11+ Years, and it’s now become my passion and focus to help you keep your WordPress website in tip top shape.

WordPress powers 30% of ALL websites online,and because of this popularity it’s becoming a focus of hackers to try and take down your WordPress website and all the hard work with it.

I want you to have a WordPress site that is snug as a bug & update, so those who have nothing better to do will ignore your website and move to someone else.

A well maintained WordPress site, running on a top notch web host will help to keep your website secure and functioning for years to come. 

Let me be your Geek in Your Pocket and keep your website in tip top shape.

Once you understand the risks, it is easier to understand the part you play in keeping your site, its users, and its data out of the hands of criminals.
