Do you have a collection of images, photos or videos you’d like to share? Do you like sharing short stories, poems or quotes? Would you like to share your interests in a way that would be accessible to a wide range of audience? All these and more, you can do through the hosting platform that helps you easily create free websites and blogs: WordPress.com
This course will be your step-by-step support system in WordPress. For the duration of the course, you’ll be able to create your own WordPress account and choose your web address. If you’re not yet ready to commit to a website name, that’s okay. WordPress allows users to have more than one web address assigned to an account. Try and create one web address just so you can practice all the activities and tasks in the learning modules and be on your way to making your WordPress site successful.
Your WordPress home page will be the face of your site and in this course you will be able to practice writing a concise description and introduction for you and your site through your profile, web site title and theme. Included in the discussions are modules for the different tabs and buttons found in the WordPress Menu and Dashboard. Just so you’ll be confident enough to explore it on your own later on.
When you have everything set-up in your site, this course will also guide you in creating your first website post, whether it be texts, with images or audio. All the plug-ins that could be added to a post will also be discussed in detail and with activities.
Be motivated and confident that each post you publish will promote the popularity level of your site. At the end of this course, you’ll learn how to attract new readers and grow your audience.
