I started to draft a blog post but couldn’t get any images to upload…tried to hyperlink some text…nothing there either.
My first thought was that there must be some long awaited update needed but WordPress showed things were good to go. Then I wondered if I’d somehow changed my permissions from Admin…nope, not it either! And that’s when I found myself up a filthy creek with no paddles.
I literally had NO IDEA what to do from here. I was all out of tricks, except I wasn’t!
David “my web guy” was the ace up my sleeve! David’s a huge part of my team, but he doesn’t have to show up too often! You know when you see some awesome tool on someone else’s blog and you think, ‘I want that!’. Or when you need to update your theme, but you’re terrified that you may just have the power of imploding your website in one click? Well, that’s when I shoot David an email.
And so I started writing the email. I explained what happened, what I’d tried and asked him to take it from here…
Well, guess what happened! Less than an hour later the problem was solved and this email was waiting in my inbox;
Bottom line, I could have spent HOURS, trying to solve the case of the missing upload button. And all the time spent trying to solve this urgent problem would have taken me away from the important things I’d planned to tackle today… And maybe even tomorrow.
There are great resources out there to build your freelance team. Start with Facebook and post to find out if anyone knows someone they would recommend for what you need. If nothing turns up, try ODesk.com
I’ve had some great luck with both…hope you do too!
