The ‘Maintenance’ of Your WordPress Website…
Has Nothing to Do with the ‘Size’ of Your WordPress Website.
OK, this might come as a surprise to some, but guess what;
Size has nothing to do with it…! Nothing!
3 Easy Steps on How to Maintain Your WordPress Website
WordPress Platform Update
Why Update your Website Platform?
Because the WordPress platform is the 'base' on which your website is built.
If you don't update, you are risking the security of your website and missing out on new features and improvements.
Do you worry about something going wrong with the update? Pass that responsibility on to experience!
WordPress Plugin Update
Why update the Plugins on your website?
WordPress plugins are like 'apps' for your website. They add new features such as, contact forms, photo galleries, sliders etc.
When plugins are updated by their developers, your responsibility is to apply these updates.
By doing so, you improve your website performance and security!
WordPress Website Backup
Did your precious computer ever crash?
Guess what, websites also crash & its a mess! Why does it happen?
For many reasons such as, malware injection, badly build WordPress theme, internal issues, and more.
Don't wait until it's too late. Weekly backups are a must, and most of all before a WordPress Platform update!

You have a choice.
You can let this go. Move on, and get around to ‘updating’ your website…when you think about it.
And, if you are like any of us. You’re busy. And if I got this right. Website ‘Maintenance’ is not your thing.
So, let’s make this easy… This is one of the ‘things’ I do for a living. I know, it sounds boring, geeky and what not, but hey, it’s part of the job.
And guess what?
I actually enjoy spending time on Friday or Sunday afternoons, checking my client’s websites… Making sure all is up to date, backed up and purring as it should!
Now, let’s think about it this way.
Maintaining your website is like ‘car maintenance’.
What happens if you forget to change the oil? Check the tire pressure? Brake Fluid? Antifreeze/Coolant?
See what I mean?
The same applies to your website.
