I'll walk you thru installation, customization, content creation, comments, social integration, list building, SEO, and Security!
This course was designed specifically to help a writer create their very first, very own WordPress Blog. The course is designed for those with ZERO experience creating WordPress Blogs. In this course, I'll create a new blog, from scratch, and walk you thru, step by step, everything I do and everything you need to do, keeping in mind that you are new to this process and trying to follow along.
In the course, you will learn why you should use WordPress, how to select your domain name and hosting account, how to install WordPress, all about Themes, Plugins, Widgets, Menus, and Categories, how to work with Images, Audio, and Video, Content Management Techniques, your choices for Comment Systems and how to install them, how to integrate your blog with popular Social Media sites, how to create a Mailing List and setup Feed Syndication, Search Engine Optimization, Tips and Technology to Secure your blog, and much more in the Bonus Section.
NOTE: GoDaddy Managed Hosting is the host I have chosen to host my blog so parts of this course review the WordPress installation process on GoDaddy. Most of the course can be followed regardless of your host, but please keep in mind that I'm hosting the blog I'm using to teach you on GoDaddy.
