Weblog Manager WANTED!

Why aren't there free-lance weblog managers?  And if there are why can't I find one.  *sigh*  There are very few things in this world I would be willing to pay someone to do on retainer...but blog manager is definitely one of them. 

Think of it, someone to do you upgrades for you.  Someone to sort out if your site is using the best configuration for your style.  Someone to work though bugs and problems and implement the fixes.  Yes I would pay for that.

So if you know anyone who is a whiz at MT 3.2 and who wants to make a bit of money on the side, have them contact me.  I really want to stop doing the nuts-and-bolts work of blog maintenance.  I'm not particularly good at it and well it makes me crazy so I'm better off with out it on my to-do list.

Why is this a new issue today?  Well because from my standpoint MT 3.2 hasn't fixed the spam problem.  Now others say it has, so I have spent a couple of hours this morning trying to figure out if it's my installation rather then a problem with the software.  Final verdict = hell if I know.  *sigh*  There is just to much I don't understand about the program and my installation.

WEBLOG MANAGER NEEDED IMMEDATELY!

:-o I feel your pain.

MT doesn't offer tech support? (Seriously, I don't know.) I thought that was essentially what users are paying them for, as there are plenty of free applications just as good as MT.

MT actually has great tech support. Aside from the problem with asynchronious communication, which is way to slow when I want it fixed NOW. The people have been very very helpful.

But you know what I really want is to not worry about all the tech stuff but I still want my own domain...I'm the kid who wants their cake to keep and eat too. I just don't want a http://loissblog.somedomainthatisntmine.com
