At the end of March we hosted a WordPress website workshop with Andrea QasGuargis of andreaq.com. She had excellent points for anyone starting out and the know-how to respond off-the-cuff to deeper questions. We hope to utilize her skill in future workshops.
Andrea handled our group of thirteen in an hour-and-a-half workshop by describing all of the starting elements and by showing us a really neat Softaculous Wodpress Demo that I think you’d want to check out if you’re learning WordPress or considering it! To get started, you’ll need a web address (domain name), a hosting service, the free WordPress software (@wordpress), and a theme to get started using this powerhouse website tool that’s at least as flexible as you.
Additional learning resources suggested by Andrea:
- WordPress support for its resources and forum
- WPBeginner for a helpful blog with tutorials
- ThemeForest for a large collection of rated themes
- WP Live for on-demand expert assistance
