WordPress Blog and Web Design

Sorry, but we (TMCC-EPIC) will have to cancel the following class because of the Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Find out why WordPress powers over  30.2% of all websites while learning how to create your own blog or website.

WordPress is the most user friendly CMS, and as most people building their website with WordPress are not developers, the whole point of the CMS should be to make it as easy as possible to build a clean, good looking website that can scale with your business. ~Google

Start with the basics such as how to install, set up and select a theme without having to learn HTML. Then dive deeper into the software by developing an understanding of customization specifics such as how to use widgets, plugins, the difference between the paid and free versions, along with tips on how to schedule blog and video posts. Finally, increase traffic to your new website by promoting your blog through social media.

… it also powers the websites of some of the worlds biggest brands, including TechCrunch, MTV,Sweden.se, Microsoft, Facebook News and Vogue

We will start with a free WordPress site.  Please be aware that a free site is limited to the changes that you would like to make, so ….

… you will need to have to have a domain name and hosting in order to take full advantage of wordpress for your website … ! I am using Godaddy.com for all my websites.  If you ask them I think they still offer a free month of hosting, however you will have to buy a domain name.

If you need assistance with buying a domain name, please Contact Trainer/Instructor (a small fee may apply)
