Want Me To Install WordPress for You?

If you don’t want to take on the challenge of installing WordPress yourself, I’ll be happy to do it for you for free.

All you have to do is order your web hosting with HostGator and I’ll set up your new blog for you. Not only that, I will also install for free the following plugins to get your blog started on the right foot:

All In One SEO is the ultimate SEO plugin for WordPress and will help your blog rank higher with the search engines. In addition, I’ll set up your new blog with search engine friendly URLs. Google Sitemap will help get your blog pages indexed quickly on Google. W3 Total Cache will make your blog load a lot faster and handle more traffic.
