    I need someone to do updates on my website. I really want someone who can do the updates in a timely manner, by that I mean within a few days. Anybody know of someone who does a good job for them?

    That would depend on what software your web site was built with and how big/extensive it is.

    ditto BaroquePony.

    Also, by updates, do you mean a few text edits, or are there photos that need to be cropped, edited, resized, and posted? I'll PM.

    I do my own. It doesn't take more than a few minutes for updates and it can save you money and alot of headaches/frustration with companies that put you on a back burner or don't get it just the way you envisioned it. If you have a few minutes, its very easy with all of the software available these days

    DITTO! After wasting over a thousand dollars thinking hiring a pro was the way to go, I started all over and made my site myself and have 100% control since I don't have to put up with unreliable people. They are EASY if you are willing to spend some time having someone help you get started, you might have to invest in the software but well worth it in the long term.

    Your need for professional assistance vs. the feasibility of doing it yourself depends on a number of things. How detail-oriented are you? Technically capable? How complex is the existing way things are put together on your site? If you posted the URL of your site, it would be easy to tell you whether it would be simple or slightly tedious to make updates.

    Also, if you had a pro build the site for you originally, and now plan to have someone new work on it, or do it yourself, you will want to get a copy of all the page files and images and such from the original site developer.

    Good luck.
