This is not a sponsored post. I was not paid or given anything in return for this post, other than my blog make over. All opinions are my own with no bias involved.
I was contacted by Olivia from Blogerize asking if I would like to collaborate with them and have my blog made over for free, in exchange for a small testimonial. I was so excited! After exchanging a few emails, Olivia gave me her advice and asked if there was any specific details I wanted to add. I told her my preferences and that same day it was sent off to be designed.
After just a couple of days, I was emailed back with an idea of my design and I absolutely loved it. I responded with one extra aspect I wanted and it was added immediately – they were so easy to work with and I felt I was really listened to. I have been thinking of going self hosted on my blog but I couldn’t make my mind up, and for this design to be added to my blog I did need to be self hosted so this was the push that I needed. Olivia recommended SiteGround and gave me some more info with the pros and cons, and in the end I decided to go with them.
The whole process was incredibly easy because after I had signed up, Olivia asked if I knew how to do a few things and technophobe me had no idea! I got a response straight away saying that she would deal with everything that I didn’t know about which was so helpful! I had set up a domain with 1&1 previously so I needed to change the name servers too, but unfortunately didn’t know how to do this. She was kind enough to do this all for me, and even when there was a problem (I had two accounts so it got confusing) she contacted their customer service team on my behalf and managed to solve the problem.
Since my site has been live, I have emailed Olivia with a few things that I wasn’t sure about, not anything they had done but merely because I’m so new to WordPress that I was rather clueless! I got a response within hours giving me a solution.
I would highly recommend Blogerize, their customer service was exemplary and any query I had was solved within hours so I would give this experience 5/5 stars. Thank you Blogerize for my updated blog – it looks so much more professional, and has given it everything that I would’ve really struggled with!
