I have been doing some idle thinking.
I have been messing around with this “blogging” lark for over six years now. I have learned a few things along the way. Would I call myself an expert on the subject? Possibly. One thing I can say is that I know a lot more about it than I did six years ago and a lot more than your average Joe Soap who has never “blogged” before.
Now Himself used to run a web design and web hosting company. I am forced to admit that it was quite successful. Too successful, in fact and the reason he quite was that the workload became too great. Add to that the fact that clients used to phone him at all times of day and night bitching about their email being stuck or their dog having rabies or some fucking complaint that had fuck all to do with the service he was offering, and it all became just too much.
But what if we combined our expertise?
What if he reopened the business but only for hosting WordPress sites? Between the two of us, what could we offer?
Well, at this stage he knows all that is really needed to be known about servers and databases and backups and all that shit that goes on in the engine room, while I know all there is to be known about …. Well, I know a fair bit too.
So between the two of us, we could provide the complete package. He can offer domain registration [whatever that is], the hosting and the installation of all the software and then as part of the package we can look after the background stuff like keeping the software up to date, doing backups and generally fixing anything that goes wrong. There are loads of companies offering hosting, but it’s up to you then to install and maintain all the shit that goes on it. Between us,
we he could handle all that.
Is there a demand for this?
Is there anyone left out there
insane keen enough to get involved in this “blogging” lark?
Is it a good idea, or should I just go back to sleep?
