Who am I? - I'm a website designer with over 15 years of experience. Over the past 10 years, I have been designing websites around Wordpress. It used to take me weeks to code up a template and page layouts. In X Theme with Cornerstone, I can build a deploy amazing websites in a fraction of that time.

We will look at some of the websites I have created using X Theme and discuss other resources available to X Theme users.
Having a website that is attractive to viewers and keeps them engaged as they learn more about what your website is offering them is important. Nothing sends people away faster than bad design. X Theme and Cornerstone help you create engaging websites that convert traffic into sales. The best part is that you can do all of this without knowing how to code.
Join me as we go through X Theme and Cornerstone one section at a time and then build some awesome pages together.
Why X Theme? - I have met the folks behind X Theme and they are really good people. Their goal is to deliver a great product that we can use to produce quality websites and they have done just that. X Theme is well supported and maintained. I feel confident building my clients websites in X Theme and Cornerstone knowing that their sites will continue to receive updates.
Why is this course free? - I believe in giving back. Most of my introductory level courses are free because I believe in sharing knowledge with each other. I taught myself how to code by reading articles and by dissecting opensource code. If it was not for this free information, I most likely would not be running Hill Media Group, my online marketing agency.
