Description

"Learn WordPress in under an hour!" will introduce the basics of working with WordPress.

You'll learn everything you need to know to be able to set up your own self hosted WordPress site, add images, format text, manage pages and posts, create a blog and manage the admin area. And since "Learn WordPress in under an hour" is geared toward beginners and those who aren't very familiar with WordPress, you won't need any prior experience working with WordPress or web development technology.

About me: I'm a highly experienced instructor who has taught web design and development at the University level for over seven years. I also currently work as a web designer and developer. Join me in exploring the exciting world of WordPress.

**PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS YOU HAVE!**
