If you've ever tried to set up your own WordPress blog, you already know how frustrating it can be. You run into technical tasks that stump you, and there's not much support to be found. Doing a search for answers, either on Google or on the WordPress.org forums, can leave you scratching your head even more.
To someone who is just starting out, the steps can be overwhelming. Terms like registrar, nameservers, FTP, etc sound foreign and you end up on a rabbit trail trying to figure out each little thing.
Not to mention that everyone else makes it sound so easy, and then you often get told after the fact that you should have done this instead of that...
A lot of people have asked me for a step-by-step "hold my hand" tutorial, but I have a confession to make: I learned (and am still learning) WordPress the hard way. I had a background in coding & design, which helped of course, but WordPress was a whole different ballgame even for me in the beginning.
For the last few months, Traci Knoppe has been helping my own Elite Members with technical blogging & WordPress issues. She does this within my private forum, and also hosted several breakout sessions. I am not currently accepting new members (sorry!), but I share that with you to tell you that I know firsthand that Traci knows her stuff when it comes to WordPress.
She has also been a professional web designer for almost 10 years straight, and she's been blogging almost as long. She has finally taken all of that knowledge and personal experience, and put together a course that you can take online. Finally
I want to tell you upfront that this course is for beginners.
If you are anxious to set up your first blog, but get frustrated with all the technical stuff... this course is for you. If you already have a blog and have no problem customizing it yourself, or learning the code on your own... this course is not for you.
Beginning Blogger is the name of the course, and it's actually not available until Monday morning (June 1st). When it opens up to the public, only 1000 spots will be available. Traci likes to take good care of her customers, so she's limiting the availability of this course.
I talked to Traci yesterday... and got you a really cool hook-up!
Starting today you can get early access to Beginning Blogger and you'll get almost 25% off the regular price. Traci set up a special link where you can take the entire 4-week course for only $29.95 (yes, less than 30 bucks, and no recurring fees!). This is going to get you a real education on setting up & customizing WordPress blogs, from a true expert.
Here's the link to use to get in early and to take advantage of the discount:
Nothing and noone will be left behind with this e-course. All your questions and concerns will be answered completely. You'll register your domain name, set up a hosting account, get your blog installed, learn how to work with widgets, and even do your own blog customization.
Here's the link again. Remember, this link gets you early access and a generous discount: http://beginningblogger.com/LTspecial.html This is an exclusive special offer. Everyone else will have to wait until Monday and pay full price.
If you have any questions about the Beginning Blogger course leave them below. I'll have Traci stop by and answer them personally...
p.s. Go it alone and spend countless hours pulling your hair out, or invest less than 30 bucks to become a blogging pro in a few short weeks? Totally up to you!
