I did a Webinar last night and recorded it, on the basics of WordPress. We wanted to give our beginners a little prep before walking into their first WordPress experience. You will find out about the difference between WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.org, how to get a domain name and what you need for hosting, and how to get started with either WordPress.com or WordPress.org.
Although, I cover a lot of info in an hour it is only scratching the surface. At WordCamp we have a beginners Workshop as well as six or seven separate presentations that will break down the beginner information into topics and present it in more detail. But, many of you asked for a bit of an overview before camp and we aim to please. Let other people know about this. Feel free to Tweet it out. You don’t have to have a ticket to WordCamp to get in on this.
(If you would like to attend the two hour hands-on beginners workshop on Friday morning of WordCamp sign up here. We are also having an hour long overview for beginners on Saturday morning, but you do not have to register for that.)
