Even though my steps for setting up your own blog or website are easy to follow, there is still a fair amount of knowledge needed to understand how your site works and how to maintain it properly. Again, don't worry if you don't have a technical bone in your body. This site has helped hundreds of non-tech-savvy individuals start their own blogs or websites.
Here are the topics I cover that will help you with your site "under the hood":
- WordPress Basics – If WordPress is your Content Management System (CMS) of choice (which I highly recommend), there are tips here that will help you get the most out of it.
- Plugins – One of the best things about WordPress are the plugins. If WordPress is like your basic ice cream sundae, plugins are like all the extra toppings that make your sundae a million times better. Plugins let you extend the functionality of WordPress almost limitlessly.
Keeping Tabs on Your Numbers
- Stats – Wonder how many people are visiting your site? Learn that and lots of other valuable information from your stats.
