Who Am I?

I’m a blogger, and the founder of the blog Mummy Mama Mum. I’ve been blogging since 2016. My main blog started out like most; a personal parenting blog with the sole purpose of capturing family memories.

 

Before the kids, I ran retail businesses and gave business advice to other managers in my field.

 

When I first started my blog, I had no idea how much I’d come to love the tech side of blogging, and all the behind the scenes stuff involved with creating and running a successful blog.

 

I’m fully aware that lots of bloggers don’t enjoy this side of blogging, though, which is where The Blog VA comes in 😉

What is a VA?

A VA (Virtual Assistant) does exactly what it says on the tin! They assist, virtually. There are lots of types of VA’s, able to perform various duties and tasks in varying fields of business.

virtual
/ˈvəːtʃʊ(ə)l,ˈvəːtjʊəl/
      
       not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so.
 
 
assistant
/əˈsɪst(ə)nt/
 
       a person who helps in particular work

My VA services and capabilities are mainly aimed towards blogging and the blogging world in general. However, what I can do isn’t necessarily limited to bloggers, as I am able to manage the tech for non-blogging websites* as well as aspects of blogs connected to businesses, whose sole purpose is not to blog.

How is The Blog VA different?

As a blogger running my own blog, I understand exactly what it takes to keep a successful blog going. Almost everything I know about blogging is self taught, so all the tech struggles you’re experiencing, I’ve experienced. I’ve been frustrated trying to get my Google analytics code into my header tag, I’ve fretted about how to set up rich pins for Pinterest, and I’ve battled with elements of my blog design that just didn’t look or respond the way I wanted them to.

 

Too scared to change your permalink structure in case you can’t make the redirect work? I’ve been there!

*my tech expertise is mainly based on sites built using the WordPress platform, although I am able to explore other platforms.
