Running a blog is a lot of work. Besides writing new content, there is search engine optimization, commenting, responding to comments, working with advertisers, reaching out to other bloggers for links, testing and optimizing, fixing broken links and images, and creating new revenue streams. Even writing new content isn’t as straight-forward as it sounds. There may or may not be keyword research involved, content research, creating a catchy title that will get clicks, an intriguing meta-description, relevant tags, and other SEO tasks.
Running a blog is a lot of work, and as you grow, you are going to need some help with common blog services. I can help you with that. Read below for a list of blog services I perform to help you get your blog into tip-top shape.
SEO meta-data, broken links, and images
Not only is a blog a lot of work, most of us are learning as we go. I know I didn’t have a clue about SEO when I started. I had published hundreds of posts before I had even heard of search engine optimization. For many bloggers, the idea of going back to filling in post meta-data, fixing broken links, and replacing broken images is extremely daunting.
For $3 per post, I will go back and fill in the SEO metadata fields for your posts, find and replace broken links, and find and replace broken images with public domain or Creative Commons licensed images.
Don’t worry if you don’t have the cash to fix all of your posts now. We can work out a deal to just do as few as 10 at a time. If interested, simply fill out the form below to reach me. Don’t worry, your email address will not be added to any list or sold or given away to a 3rd party at any time.

Ebook Editing, Formatting, and Conversion services
One of the best ways for a blogger to make money is to write a book. Bloggers have an unfair advantage over other authors because we already have content to use. It is a matter of re-purposing old blog posts by taking the main points for each post on a certain theme and re-writing them. In a single day, you can have a rough draft of a short 20-30 page ebook.
But writing the book is only half the battle. The other half is making it presentable and putting it in formats that people want to read. Using a free PDF printer to make a PDF document of your book and selling it directly on your site is a time-honored practice, but if that is all you are doing, you are missing out on a lot of potential customers.
90% of all ebooks purchased are through Amazon.com Another 9% are bought on Barnes & Noble, Google Play Books, and iTunes. That means that less than 1% of all ebooks are purchased on sites such as yours. And what percentage of all website traffic does your site have?
I can get your book ready for the prime time. Through my SEAM Publishing ebook formatting services, I will fix formatting errors and convert your ebook to the Kindle and ePub formats required by Amazon and the other book sellers. And yes, I will make a PDF for you if you want.
