This course is designed for busy small business owners or bloggers who ALREADY have a (self-hosted) WordPress website or blog created by someone else (or who have just a simple theme installed).

If you’re sick of struggling with your WordPress website or blog, or tired of having to contact your web designer to make changes that should be simple, this course is for you!

Take this course if:

    ·You’re tired of trying to wrangle WordPress

    ·You’re tired of contacting your designer for help with every little thing

    ·You already have a WordPress website set up and running, but just need to learn how to manage it

    ·You don’t have time to Google, search, and wade through conflicting answers about how to make edits to your website

    ·You want more freedom to do what you want, when you want, with your own website

In this course you will learn the basics of updating and maintaining your WordPress website or blog. We won't cover coding or graphic design--just WordPress basics.

Learn how to manage your own WordPress website quickly and easily through the use of screencasts. And go back over course material whenever you need a refresher!

This course will cover:

·Logging into WordPress

·Navigating the admin dashboard

·Inserting and editing posts and pages

·The difference between posts and pages

·The difference between categories and tags

·Editing and creating menus

·Using widgets

·Installing plugins

·Inserting image galleries

·And more!

So say “goodbye” to being dependent on someone else to manage your website, and say “hello” to the freedom of making the changes you want, when you want!

Having trouble? Feel free to ask questions in the course “Discussion” and I’ll do my best to help out. Please keep in mind that this course covers the BASICS only, so if something falls outside of the scope of the course, I’ll only be able to try to redirect you to an appropriate source.

Note: Although the demo site in this video uses the Genesis Framework, it is not required to take this course (though I do recommend it!).

WordPress Website Designer

Hey! I'm Erin and I'm a handmade-loving, small-business supporting, blogger and web designer. I've been making websites since 1999, and I've been self employed since 2012!

I make a living creating awesome sites for small businesses that focus on selling their products and services. Nothing makes me happier than helping someone else's small business dreams come true via a great website!

I also love to teach others how to build functional websites, manage their websites, and build confidence and expertise with both their own websites or sites they've made for others.

I specialize in WordPress and the Genesis Framework, and love working with both.

When I'm not making websites, I'm blogging, crafting, cooking, or going on adventures.
