Hire me

I offer various online services. Do you need a virtual assistant, writing services, want to grow your blog or something else? I have helped many of my clients grow their websites and grow their online income. Below are some of the services that I offer. I offer many more services, so please email me if you are interested in hearing further:


Website/Blog Management

I currently completely manage two website for other owners, as well as six of my own websites. Some of the tasks I provide include:

  • Managing and approving comments. If you are busy, then you want your blog to continue on just like if you were still there. I get rid of any spam, and approve real comments. I also reply to comments on your articles if that is something that you normally do (such as answering any questions from readers).
  • Watching to make sure your website stays live and that there are no problems with your host.
  • Monitoring e-mails and replying when necessary.
  • Ensuring articles publish when they should.
  • Managing staff writers and editing content.
  • Coming up with new topic ideas and creating an editorial calendar.
  • Writing articles while you are away (including ghost-written articles).

I can also manage your blog for a short period of time as well. If you just need one week, one month, or some other time period off from your blog (such as for travel, to unplug, a vacation from your website, to start a family, to start a new job and so on), I can help with this as well.


Below are testimonials of my blog management service:

“I hired Michelle to manage my blog for one week while I went on vacation for my anniversary. I’d never been away from my blog in almost four years, so I wanted to see what it was like to not check on it constantly and enjoy my time away. Michelle was great, and I had every confidence that she would ensure things ran smoothly while I was gone. Not only did she answer my e-mails and handle some advertising negotiation but she took the time to text me and let me know when my site was down due to a Blue Host issue, just so I wouldn’t worry if I checked it myself. My experience with Michelle was so positive that I recommended her to another blogger who took a vacation, and she will be managing my site for a few weeks during my maternity leave. My blog is my business and my primary means of making an income, so I feel really blessed that I was able to find someone who I could trust to make sure it ran smoothly.”   - Cat at Budget Blonde

“I hired Michelle to manage my site, as well as email, for a week as I was going on vacation. I was a bit nervous leaving my site for a week, but Michelle helped allay that concern as she took great care of the site. She made sure that everything went smoothly, and as it should, while I was gone – which helped allow me to truly vacate. If you’re looking for someone to manage your site when you have to be away from it, I would highly recommend Michelle’s services.” - John at Frugal Rules
