WordPress Basics for Blogging and Websites

wordpress_logo1-300x282Interested in having your own website or blog but just dont know where to start? WordPress has become the number one tool for creating websites and personal blogs and it makes it so easy to do. Even if you hire someone like me to set up and create your site it is a good idea to learn how to at least do posts, especially if you plan on being a blogger. This class will cover the basics to get you up and running from scratch quickly.

We will cover:

  • What is WordPress
  • What kind of websites WordPress is for
  • What is the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org
  • How to install wordpress software
    • Getting your domain name
    • Site hosting
  • What is the difference between post and page
  • What are categories and tags
  • What are themes and plugins
  • How to install theme or plugin
  • Layout of a WordPress site
  • Media uploader
  • Blogging
    • Sticky posts
    • Schedule posts
    • Draft posts
    • Password protected
  • Recommended Plugins
  • Basic SEO

One thing we will not get into (much) is HTML and CSS. The idea is when we are done you can set up your own self-hosted site and start blogging with out knowledge of any coding. At the very least youll be able to blog on a site set up for you 🙂

Class will be limited to 12 people.

Date: Feb 8th
Time: 3PM
