Earlier this year I started up a new blog called The Blogging Bunch with my friends Sarah (from Play 2 Learn with Sarah) and Carrie (from Carrie Elle). The purpose of our blog is to help other people get their blogs started. While we welcome all bloggers we mostly cater to beginning up to intermediate bloggers. A lot of our followers come to us with little more than an idea of a blog, and we are happy to help them every step of the way. Now we are making the set-up process even easier because we have just launched a new step-by-step blog set-up course and it’s called Build Your Blog with WordPress.
The course is designed for the very beginning blogger, and it truly is a step-by-step tutorial on how to get your blog started. The course consists of six different videos. The videos were created by Sarah and in each video she will completely walk you through that videos topic. You can watch the videos as many times as you want, so if you were confused by something or forget something you can always return and watch a specific video again.
The topics covered in the videos are:
- Setting up Hostgator and installing WordPress
- Dashboard settings
- Media library, pages, categories, and menus
- Your first post
- Widgets (sidebar) and comments
By the time you’ve made it through all of the videos you should have a good understanding of how the WordPress dashboard works and you should be on your way to getting your first post published. Many blogs are created every day, but msot people stop working on them just as quickly because they become overwhelmed. We’re here to help reduce your stress and anxiety about how to do things so you can focus on the important part…writing!
Now the course isn’t free, but it’s pretty close to it. You will get lifetime access to the videos for only $9.00! That’s it, and as a thank you for purchasing our very first training course we’ll install the Genesis theme plus the Lifestyle Child theme onto your blog for FREE (a $79.95 value). That way you not only will have your blog up and running, but it will look nice too.
Still not sure if the course is right for you? Check out the sign up page for Build Your Blog with WordPress: A Step-by-Step Tutorial. There you’ll find out more information and you can even preview the first course! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. At The Blogging Bunch we believe that everyone should have a blog, and we want to make having one easy for you!
