Bio/Description

Over the last 5 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using WordPress / WordPress MU and now WordPress Multi Site.

I am the owner at www.bloglines.co.za, As the owner, I run the day by day operations of my community of websites, as well as communicating with new bloggers.

I love WordPress and i love to make WordPress Super Fast on cheap hosting to dedicated servers.

My core competency lies in complete WordPress management from being server admin to fixing code and just making sure all the systems are in place to keep the load down and to keep customers sites running fast all the time.

I am seeking opportunities to build websites and to fix slowness on any WordPress website.
