Starting Your First Blog with WordPress

When you have an idea for a blog that could help your business, or just have something you want to document over time, it's hard to know how to start a blog that actually helps you achieve your goals. It can feel like posting brings you very little result. A WordPress blog, when set up right, can help you not only build a strong brand around your business or idea, but provide you the free tools you need to monetize, build an audience, and connect to your other online content. In this workshop, you'll learn how to customize your site, how to post compelling SEO-rich content, and use plugins wisely. At the end of the workshop, you will have a functional WordPress blog with all the basics down to start posting right away.

  • Plugin Recommendations

    With over 60,000 available plugins, get some tried and true recommendations so you can have a strong place to start adding features.
