  1. Hey guys, I just wanted to see if you need anything in the way of site editing/code fixing/programming, unique blog post material, extra traffic, social media management, etc. I have quite a few ways I can set all of this and do thhis for you. Don’t mean to impose, was just curious, I’ve been doing thhis for some time and was just curious if you needed an extra hand. I can even do WordPress and other related tasks (you name it).

    PS – I’m here in the states, no need to outsource 🙂
