The release of my eBook The Power of WordPress: Building a Successful Business Site is near!
As a way to build interest, I have released a free 22-page eBook on WordPress Plugins. In this eBook, I cover what I consider to be the top 10 essential plugins for any WordPress website. Plugins are at the heart of added functionality for WordPress, and understanding how to use them effectively within your WordPress site is critical. I explain what they do, why it’s important, and how to install and configure them.
As many of you already know, I’m a huge WordPress advocate. I now have all of my clients on WordPress sites and they are pleased to have the kind of control and autonomy that comes with a website built on the WordPress platform. They are also realizing added savings by not having to pay me (or any developer) for making additions or changes to their site. This is a win-win situation for the me and my clients. I prefer to focus on the design and creation of websites, and not so much the ongoing maintenance. My clients prefer to have a site built for them that allows them to easily tweak and fine-tune it as their business grows.
In the days leading up to the release of The Power of WordPress: Building a Successful Business Site, I will be adding quick posts to this site on various aspects of WordPress. Please come back and check them out.
In the meantime, you can get the “Top 10 WordPress Plugins” eBook by subscribing on the upper sidebar.
I’ve been blogging a while now and i’m constantly redesigning templates and blindly messing around with html, i actually enjoy it. I live in London and have been looking around for WordPress developer short courses but they’re actually too short, i’m a slow learner so i feel this may be a waste of money and leaving me with no time to adjust to things i may have been told or experiment hands on. The Power Of WordPress sounds more like it though, can you tell me when you plan on releasing it and can you give me any advice on what i could be doing in the meantime?
Would appreciate your help!
My eBook should be finished in early January, 2011. I’ll send you a message when it’s out.
In the meantime, I suggest looking at the great material on the wordpress.org site. Their documentation is very good: http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
Also check out http://wordpress.tv/ for some very well-done video material.
Hope that helps.
