Flores is a WordPress designer and developer who offers a variety of services including design, development, blog and site coaching, content creation, marketing and SEO. She also applies that knowledge to her own blog, Blondish.net, where she shares tips about blogging and website management.
A Blond Anomaly
A blond female in a field dominated by men, Flores said she’s sometimes seen as an anomaly. She’s also known for sharing her knowledge on her blog and at conferences without holding back. That means she focuses on providing content that’s actually valuable, rather than content that is just intended to get people to hire her.
She also encourages others to do the same.
“I’ve butted heads with bloggers in both the WordPress niche and Blogs About Blogging niche to help them think about improving their site, rather than producing rehashed and mediocre work.” she said in an email interview with BizSugar.com
Becoming a WordPress Expert
Flores has been part of the WordPress community for over ten years. And she’s been blogging for even longer. In college, she ran a few large Yahoo! Clubs. She wanted to build a website companion for one of the clubs, but wasn’t satisfied with page builder of GeoCities. So she started researching other website builders.
She hopped around to different sites and domain names for several years, but settled on Blondish.net back in 2006. Abd she’s also settled upon WordPress as her platform of choice. She also used to have a huge list of blogging topics, from graphics and resources for webmasters to her own poetry. She has since become more focused in her professional blog topics.
