You seem like the one to ask: When I get the site all finished out, I'd like to have a real pro look it over and tell me what needs improvement. Are you aware of such consulting services? I'm learning wordpress pretty well but I'm still not all that familiar with the rest of the industry. I'm sure they exist, but it seems to me like businesses centered around this would be more along the lines of "We build the site and you pay us to do it". Whereas in my case, I'm building the site because I want to run it myself and I want to learn it really well. So instead of having them build it, I want to build it and just have a real pro go through all my work and pick out what needs to be improved.
Yeah, that's pretty much the nature of the beast. Finding a "real pro" who you feel you can trust, knows their stuff, and is willing to work with you based on your preferences above is easier said than done.
Have you looked into the possibility of joining something like a WordPress Users Group
near you for help? That's one of the first things I'd recommend in your case because given what you've described--what could be useful to you at this point is facetime with others like yourself. If you're not adverse to using Facebook, you might also try having a look at the WordPress Help for Beginners Public Group
there. They've got something upwards of 7,000 members there currently and probably would be a better place to seek out advice about WordPress related stuff than here on OCN.
There was a time when I'd offer my help, but I'm not taking any new work on because I already have enough on my plate and am fairly swamped. I'm also moving toward quasi retirement as I've been doing this stuff for years and feel it's time to pass on the torch.
Again, good luck!
