About Course

Learn the basics of WordPress in our easy-to-follow beginners course!

Why?

WordPress is an extremely powerful tool that helps people manage and create websites.

It’s like a free box of tools that has everything you might want for your website.

And if there’s something you wish it had but doesn’t, you can add just about any functionality using WordPress plugins.

But, because WordPress has so many possibilities, it might be a bit tricky to figure out at first.

Learning WordPress is like riding a bike.  And it might take a little more time compared to some other platforms for making websites, like Wix or Squarespace.  But it’s worth it!

Wix and Squarespace are good for making “quick”, “simple” websites that fit within certain limitations.  But for a truly unlimited website experience, you need to use WordPress.

I’ve made lots of websites using WordPress.org’s website building platform (not the other one called WordPress.com, which is different).  I’ve made the process simple with these easy steps that anyone can follow.
