In 2009, I started Digital Mom Blog as an intersection for all things that I found and learned in regards to parenting and technology. With a background in web design, figuring out WordPress wasn’t a big deal. But over the years, I’ve helped dozens of people get started on their blogging adventures and quickly realized that without a tech background – there’s a bit of a learning curve.
Start a Blog – Simple and Affordable
Have you ever thought about blogging? I am an affiliate and super fan of Studio Press and am super excited to tell you about their newest product – StudioPress Site. No longer do you have to worry with the hassle of having to find hosting and a theme – StudioPress Site is affordable and super simple to get started with. (Getting started is key. Don’t let the tech part scare you!)
StudioPress Site – WordPress Hosting and Theme
If you want to get nerdy with the details, here you go:
Industry Standard Design Framework
The Genesis Framework already powers over 500,000 WordPress sites, and its the foundation of your new StudioPress Site. With search engine optimized code, airtight security, instant updates, customizable widget and layout options, and a huge developer community, Genesis is the framework that makes WordPress easier, without sacrificing power or flexibility.
20 Mobile-Optimized HTML5 Designs
You want sleek, professional design without paying a fortune for it and without fearing instant obsolescence as web design evolves. Choose from a score of included turnkey mobile optimized HTML5 designs that provide beautiful frames for your content. Feel free to personalize any of the included themes by tweaking the CSS, or go to a completely custom Genesis child theme.
Fast Loading Performance
Get started setting up your StudioPress Site right away on our infrastructure thats optimized specifically for peak WordPress performance. Site speed and page load times are too important to be jammed on a box with hundreds of generic WordPress installs. More importantly, never face the experience of your site crashing just because you succeed in getting big traffic.
Zero Hosting Hassles
Not only do you enjoy superior speed and performance with your StudioPress Site, you also avoid the hassle of self-hosted WordPress, like surprise expenses for bandwidth upcharges, storage, CPUs and RAM. Even as your StudioPress Site remains solid during surprise traffic spikes, you wont pay extra for short-term success on the way to sustained higher traffic.
Even beyond the security features built into Genesis and the included automatic plugin and theme maintenance, theres more to protect your StudioPress Site. Our architecture is designed to maximize security and performance — including intrusion prevention, continuous scanning and monitoring for malware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, and more.
Advanced SEO Functionality
Automatic Plugin and Theme Maintenance
Getting hacked is no laughing matter, and the number one way bad guys get in is through outdated themes, plugins, and old versions of WordPress. Many WordPress site owners now spend $79 or more every month to have an outside service keep things updated and safe. StudioPress technology takes care of this for you at no extra charge. Opt-out if you want!
One-Click Install of Included Plugins
Never wonder which plugins are trustworthy, thanks to your StudioPress Sites repository of one-click solutions for the premium functionality you desire. Choose from an ever-expanding selection including WooCommerce, Design Palette Pro, AMP, Beaver Builder Lite, OptinMonster, AffiliateWP, Soliloquy Lite, Easy Digital Downloads, Restrict Content Pro, Ninja Forms, WPForms Lite, and more to come.
StudioPress Sites are truly unique, in the sense that the entire service has been designed from the ground up to promote integrated ease-of-use while eliminating confusion and the chance that something will go wrong. And yet, you should rest assured that if something does go off the rails, our friendly support team is standing by 24/7 to assist you in getting back on track fast.
I’m in the process of relaunching another blog with this very system, stay tuned for details!
