Wanted - tallented bloggers and copywriters

Thursday, 2 February 2017

We're currently using Fiver to recruit talented bloggers and copywriters to help spread the word about XML sitemaps and promote our service, but this isn't cost effective longer term with our very limited funds, so we're looking to our great user community to help out.

We're primarily interested in English bloggers, but if you are able to take our English content and produce high quality copy in Mandarin, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic or Portuguese we'd also be interested to hear from you and put you on our contact list.

We'd also like to hear from people who have made or are interested in making help and support videos and blog posts as well as testimonials.

Of course even if you can't help out by writing copy we'd love your support whether it's a tweet or a share or a donation.

So don't delay if you're a blogger and can write high quality guest posts or you can write high quality copy that we can use then  please get in touch and let us know how you can help.

Thank you for 2016

Thursday, 5 January 2017

We just wanted to say thank you for all your support during 2016, it was an "interesting" and sometimes challenging year, but we made it through.

The main event of the year was when our then hosting provider 123reg deleted ALL their customer's virtual services and had no backups or recovery mechanisms. This left us and many similar businesses to recover from file backups.

After we recovered from this we slowly migrated our services to the more reliable and resilient Microsoft Azure hosting. This move did push our costs up, but you're generosity saw us through this rocky patch and we stabilised the service.

Then shortly after Brexit Microsoft increased their prices due to the falling £pound. Having recently closed our books for the year, we just about scraped through and covered our costs, but this continues to be a challenge for us.

It wasn't all blood sweat and tears. We really enjoyed working on the latest WordPress sitemap plugin, adding a number of key features our users had been asking for. We were really grateful for all the positive feedback we got from users on this.

We also made a number of improvements to our help and support information including a new diagnostic tool to help people diagnose some common website problems when generating their sitemap.

And of course we never get tired of seeing your support on social media as well as the rating and reviews you leave for us.
Recent user feedback

So what about 2017?

Well... we're really going to more dependent than ever on your donations to keep the show on the road. If many users donate just a little we'll get through.

With your support we hope to be able to setup servers in multiple locations to further improve performance and start to look at providing content in multiple languages. Of course all of this doesn't come free so it will move at a pace dictated by donations and costs.

We hope you'll continue to feedback on all our solutions and we'll do our best to listen to your feedback and improve our services, adding new features and support information to make them work better for you.

We love to hear your ideas so please keep them coming.

Let's make it a great 2017!
