Web Site Maintenance

Maintaining and updating the content of your web site is easy. Once we set up your account, all you have to do is send an email with the updated content. I will update your site within a day or two, depending on the complexity. I will give you a heads up if it will take longer than 48 hours. If you are on wordpress, the dashboard will let you know when updates to your plug ins and themes are needed. If you are uncomfortable with updating your wordpress, that's ok. I can do that for you, too!

All updates are done in the order they are received. Please include complete information needed for the changes to avoid any delays. Maintenance fee is $30 per hour, prorated by the quarter hour.

I have had the great privilege in working with Lori Sturgeon three times; first with the Museum of Nursing History website where she first taught me the basics of WordPress. I then hired Lori to design my own ministry website, during which time, she helped me increase my proficiency to maintain my own site; and most recently (January 2019), I recommended Lori to Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia (HWHL) to refresh and update their mission website. Her technical expertise improved its functionality and security features. Readership of the HWHL website is worldwide. Lori’s artistic touches made the site attractive, and the design theme she chose shows the diversity of topics, as well as additional user-friendly picture carousels. She is patient, instructive, and a very nice person to work with – once again, Thank-you, Lori.

Museum of Nursing History

Museum of Nursing History

The Museum of Nursing History is committed to the preservation and exhibition of historical nursing memorabilia and to educate the nursing community as well as the general public about nursings' past.

The Project:

The museum was interested in a site that they could easily update and showcase their collections of nursing artifacts. We decided on a wordpress site with the Genesis framework and child theme.
Ongoing Services: Maintenance as needed.

What Jane said:

I am a board member of the Museum of Nursing History and have had my RN since 1957. I became active with the museum in 2004. The web site for the museum consisted of several broken links, misinformation, and three different addresses. Need I go on?
This situation, in my opinion, was intolerable. Getting the web site fixed presented its own set of problems with the board. With perseverance, 5 proposals and the recommendation of a satisfied customer, Lori was selected to fix our website. Not an easy task I must say.
In addition, several retired and close to retirement nurses wished to be the content managers. She had to walk us through; do a lot of handholding, furnish some anti-anxiety reassurance (You get the picture). It is hard to believe; here we are working on our web site, adding content and so forth. I invite you to visit the web site Museum of Nursing History.org and see for yourself!

Working with Lori has been a pleasure. When we first began looking into initiating an overhaul of our website, we didn’t know where to begin. Lori helped talk us through the entire process and was very helpful, taking time to understand exactly what we wanted from our new website. Her professionalism, advice and assistance throughout the process were invaluable.
