Course Description

Are you ready to CREATE a website and/or blog?


If you answered yes, then this course is for you.

Maybe you started your website presence on another platform. Maybe you paid someone to build your site on the WordPress platform but have no idea how to use, edit, and post to your new site.

You're not alone. I see many bloggers in your situation.

Sure, it can be intimidating but as you probably already figured out, the transition to WordPress is worth it. And with a little bit of help I know you'll be a WordPress wiz in no time!

This course features 35 video lessons that will show you all that your new blogging platform has to offer.

This course does not feature any tutorial on how to setup your WordPress site. If you need more information on how to set up your WordPress site, please enroll in our free course entitled, "How To Launch Your WordPress Site In 20 Minutes."

Have completed the DIH University Course "Ultimate Guide to WordPress". Advertised as the "Ultimate" guide to Wordpress, i found it to be thorough but basic. The modules dealing with formatting posts were very simple (similar to using a word processor). I did not find those areas very helpful but they would perhaps appeal to those without wordprocessing knowledge. I found the modules relating to images and adding menus the most helpful. I would rate this course as good for very extreme beginners and more as a refresher for those with a little Wordpress experience under their belt. The videos were very clear and even though I have a slow (satellite) internet connection, I did not experience any buffering. The course was easy to follow and easy to complete. Thank you DIH!
