    Traci,
    Thanks! I'm just doing a launch on my blog for my Free Fridays, so my switching is delayed....I should have swapped first, but couldn't get it done quickly enough. Thank you though, when I get ready to swap, I'll take a look at your ecourse.

    Hi Layla

    WARNING NOTICE: I already told you all that I am a big 30DC advocate ...

    I am so pleased that I can recommend 30 Day Challenge to you, that is if you haven't seen it before, it is a free online course run by industry GURUs that walks you through WordPressDirect (which I recommend also) by one of the guys who set it up. Can't get more expert than that!

    There are actually more than 30 days worth of videos but you can skim through and use the modules you need.

    I'll stop now, good luck.

    Oh, just one more thing my skype name is leigh.kostiainen so feel free to ask me questions I will help where I can.

    Cheers
    Leigh

    I too have done 30DC (last year actually) when they first launched WPD (and Market Samuari). Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of WPD - but that's just me. I've had many folks consult with me because WPD is not easy to use, it's basically WP with built-in plugins and some automation features.

    That said, for the uber newbie who wants to attempt to do it yourself, you can give WPD a try. Hopefully someone is over at the forums this year helping answer WPD questions, because there were a ton of them. Last year, one of those someone's was me. This year, I'm too busy to get over there to help.

    Hi Traci

    It is great to hear another 30DC success story.

    I too did 30DC last year and am doing it again this year as there are so many cool tools that come out of it and this year was no exception the coolest tool IMO is the Word Press 'plugin' called Pretty Links.

    I personally think WPD is very easy to use and I am a huge fan of plugins. I even taught my dad to use it. Their auto integration this year means newbies no longer need to use an ftp client to install WPD or the plugins. As for support anyone using WPD should contact them directly for support, they have a very good response time.

    Cheers

    Actually to add a foot note, I also use the WP Admin Panel for my main work on my sites and use WPD for installations, but this years videos explain the WPD panel much better than last year.

    I've been using the Pretty Links plugin for quite a while now, so not anything specific to 30DC.

    But yes, Ed and the gang are usually very cutting edge in introducing tools to everyone; but I've been in the web design world for nearly a decade, so usually hear about such things far in advance and am usually already using them before most folks hear about them.

    Hi Layla,

    Glad to hear you are moving to a WordPress blog on your own server - smart move! Did you get it set up yet? If not, let us know where you run into questions.

    As for WPD, my thoughts are here:

    Also a big fan of Ed Dale & 30DC, but not WPD

    The 30 Day Challenge (30DC) is run by Ed Dale and a few others, who teach the basics to help you earn your first dollar (or $10) online. http://thirtydaychallenge.com
