For those who have been using my monthly maintenance plan, something will be changing starting today. These changes will improve the service, as well as the communication around this offering. Starting today, instead of the previous schedule of web site update checking happening once a week, the checks will take place on a daily basis.
Now, through the end of 2017, I will be offering free WordPress cleanup services for web sites. This comes with zero strings attached, including zero offers to upgrade or purchase any of the services I currently offer. This is a love gift, giving back to the wonderful WordPress community and is available regardless of whether you are a current or past customer, or someone I just met through this offer. I will retain no site information beyond the assistance I provide, as is customary for my business, unless that information is permitted by the client and is kept as securely as I possibly can. It is not my intention to use this free service to acquire new customers.

The upcoming My Simple Theme is nearly complete, so I decided to push it on for use here on Michael Mann Web Design. Kicking the tires, I found a few areas where some work could go into improving things. Development is nearly complete and this site will serve as a model site for what is possible with the first theme to be released to the public by me. Enjoy!
