I often get asked about how wordpress works. I can’t answer this question in a short email, so I usually point people to google and youtube because this is how I learned it.
There is no shortage of information, tips and tutorials about wordpress available on the internet. In fact, the problem is completely the opposite: there are just too many articles, videos, webcasts etc. And what if you don’t even know what you should be looking for? A sure way to drown in the sea of information is to start checking out every single website about wordpress you come across.
This is why I put together this short list of wordpress tutorials for beginners. They are produced by BlueHost – the web-hosting company I use and recommend. The videos are short and to the point and will give you just enough information so that you can start your own wellness/healthy food blog.
A quick note: these tutorials are for self-hosted wordpress blogs also known as wordress.org (and not wordpress.com). To start a self-hosted wordpress blog you will need a hosting account. I have been using BlueHost since day one and I’ve been very happy with their service. To purchase web-hosting service from BlueHost click here.
If you already have a hosting account with another webhost, you will still benefit from watching these videos.
