3 Things You Need for Your Website SL009

As someone trying to earn money and build a career off of the sexy, smutty stuff you make, your website must work. While you can’t prevent crashes (or most of them), there are things and people you can have to help you survive them. When my own website crashed this week, I was reminded of this in a big way.

In this episode:

  • All my websites went down this week. After the first fix, KaylaLords.com was still down.
  • I hadn’t run a back-up recently, even though I knew they were important.
  • Thankfully I had help because I don’t really know how to how get into the guts of my website.
  • Here are a few things you need:
  • A back-up plugin that automates the process for you. UpdraftPlus was recommended to us by DomSigns.
  • A host company with good tech support.
  • A good tech person. John Brownstone can do some stuff but for the big problems, we need a professional.
  • Massive, huge, major shout-out to DomSigns as he’s the one fixing my website and doing things I never could have done alone. He’s my go-to whenever something big goes wrong, and my number one recommendation.

Kayla Lords

Kayla Lords is a freelance sex writer, podcaster, blogger, all-around sex content creating human, and she really likes creating content. As a writer, she focuses on sex and kink primarily on BDSM and power exchange. She works with private clients to write their content and manage their social media, while also co-hosting two podcasts, running a YouTube channel, and managing multiple blogs. Let's just say, she stays busy and wants to keep it that way. Kayla is an international speaker and an award-winning sex blogger. She believes we are stronger together as a community than we are isolated and apart. We all deserve to get paid for the work we do, but until we understand our cumulative power, we'll all wonder if we're "the only one" doing this smutlancing thing.
