New WordPress Tutorial Series – Using WordPress

by on April 28, 2009 · 6 comments

WordPress is a great platform for your small business website.

One of the many reasons to use WordPress for your website is because it makes it easy to update your site and publish fresh new content.

Publish Content Fast!

Based on requests from many of my clients and readers of this blog, I’m starting a new series of posts and tutorials called “Using WordPress.”

This series will be a little different from the things I usually write about on this blog – building WordPress websites and Local SEO. But I think these tutorials will be very useful for small business owners who recognize how important it is to publish fresh new content regularly to boost your Google search results.

Updating Your Website Should be Easy

Are you able to update your website any time you want? So many people I talk to struggle with this – they have to hire someone to make changes to their site.

Updating your website shouldn’t be hard. If your website is based on a tool like WordPress, you can update it without having to understand HTML and CSS.

All you have to do is get familiar with the rich text editor, which is much like a simpler version of Microsoft Word, and once your site is set up you can publish new content quickly and easily.

Beginner WordPress Topics

With the help of two new authors to this blog – Cindy Wilkinson and David Smith – I’ll help you get up to speed quickly and publishing to your WordPress website with ease. We will cover beginner WordPress topics like:

  • Publishing posts and pages in WordPress
  • Adding photos, audio and video to your posts
  • Saving and returning to draft posts and pages
  • Publishing your post at a later date
  • Adding a widget to your sidebar
  • And many more…

We’ve got over 36 WordPress articles and tutorials planned and being written in this series, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you can be notified as they are published.

And don’t forget to let me know what you think of the series or individual tutorials – I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below!

Don,
It’s great to SEE “how to” Wordpress stuff.
Where practical, my 10 yen is with 5 x 6 min clips rather 1 x 30 min – as Idon’t always have uninterrupted time to sit thru a longer clip.

Hello Don,

How the heck did you eliminate the spacing between your header and your navbar?

Thank you for all you share, I appreciate it.
