We have worked with MANY bloggers and site owners. The biggest struggle we see is the need to make a site “perfect”, taking months and even a year (or more!) before launching…
Here’s a hint: YOUR SITE WILL NEVER BE PERFECT!
All sites are a work in progress. The biggest and most important thing you should do is focus on what truly matters: CONTENT!
Giving you all the tools and set-up you need to get going NOW.
Anyone who has started a blog knows how monumentally hard it is to learn “all the things”. Blogging isn’t just about putting words on a screen and you are an instant success. (wouldn’t that we AWESOME?!)
This blog gives you a fully functioning site with the tools and set-up to focus not only on creating amazing content but also giving you more time to learn other skills like SEO, Pinterest Marketing, monetization strategies, and others.
Keeping your site running smoothly and FAST is an absolutely essential part of blogging. This site is set-up to optimize your images and speed up page load time.

Blogging is a business. You want to ensure that you and your blog are covered (as much as possible) against lawsuits. This blog just needs your legal templates and it’s GDPR and CCPA compliant (as well as setting yourself up to be accepted into affiliate programs).

This site is built using the Elementor page builder (free version). We consider it to be the easiest page builder to learn on the market today! YouTube tutorials are everywhere to help you along.

While there are some recommendations we will make to upgrade some plugins and services down the road, the only ongoing fees are the annual renewal of the domain name and the charges from your own host company (or with Kit Blogs). That's it!
You will have lifetime licences (meaning access for LIFE) to Astra Pro, Premium Starter Sites, and HappyForms (for all your form needs, including a way for your readers to pay you when connected with Stripe).
Yes, the ownership of the domain will be transferred to you. You will be responsible for renewing the domain each year.
A child theme is a way to install a theme (the "parent") and then create a subset within your theme to pull all the elements from the “main theme” (Astra).
A child theme is set-up only to protect any changes you make from being erased when your theme (Astra) needs to be updated (which they do regularly to add features or keep up with WordPress updates).
Generally, many customizations on your site would not change when you update a theme. BUT, if you add any CSS or non-theme specific changes, they could be lost.
A child theme has been installed on this site. And, don't worry, you'll never know the difference!
