Blogging presents us with awesome opportunities.
For many, it represents the potential for freedom. There are countless stories of people who have used blogging to free themselves from the shackles of traditional employment.
I happen to be one such person – I was first able to quit my job through freelance blogging, and I now run a successful blog article writing business and generate ‘passive’ income through Leaving Work Behind and its associated products.
However, these opportunities are not open to everyone. There are many out there who have the passion and motivation to create a blog, but simply don’t know how. They feel that they lack the technical chops to set a blog up and get it working in the way they would like.
And while there are endless resources relating to the creative side of blogging (my clear favorite being How to Start a Blog That Matters over at Fizzle), I see far less comprehensive technical help available for complete beginners.
To clarify that point, while there are plenty of technical blogging tutorials spread across the web, I’ve never found a free blogging course that does a great job in showing a complete blogging newbie how to get their blog set up in the way they would like – covering everything from design to functionality and beyond.
So I decided to create that course myself.
It’s been nearly two years in the making, and I think you’re going to love it. Read on to discover how I’m giving you the opportunity to gain exclusive early access to the course along with personal coaching – completely free of charge.
Introducing Beginner Blogging
Beginner Blogging will be a completely free yet comprehensive online course for people who want to start a blog but are not sure how.
Through the duration of the course, it is assumed that your technical computing experience is limited to simple tasks such as web browsing, email and word processing – nothing more.
Like I said, there are loads of courses out there relating to the creative side of blogging, so Beginner Blogging focuses entirely on the technical aspects of how to create a blog that you will love.
I’ve used the benefit of my years of blogging (and my specific experience with the WordPress blogging platform) to create this course from the ground up myself. It is exhaustive yet extremely easy to follow, with simple step-by-step instructions and screenshots galore.
Best of all, this course will be tried and tested by people just like you, so you know that there is no stone left unturned in terms of teaching you what you need to know in a way that will make perfect sense
Beginner Blogging is broken up into seven sections:
- Creating Your WordPress Blog
- Getting to Know WordPress
- Setting Up Your WordPress Blog
- Choosing and Installing a WordPress Theme
- Installing and Configuring WordPress Plugins
- Creating Menus and Widgets for Your WordPress Blog
- Creating Posts and Pages for Your WordPress Blog
The course also includes vital complementary resources, such as handpicked lists of free themes and plugins that you can use to take your blog to the next level. Much more is planned for the future too.
In short, Beginner Blogging will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that you have everything you need to create a beautiful and highly functional blog.
Your Opportunity for Exclusive Early Access and Free Personal Coaching
I mentioned above that the course will be tried and tested by people just like you. With that in mind, I’m calling on you now to gain exclusive early access to Beginner Blogging.
