WordPress for Beginners: A Visual Step-by-Step Guide to Creating your Own WordPress Site in Record Time, Starting from Zero!

Posted on July 08, 2013 by Blog Design Journal

Do you want to build a website but scared it’s too difficult?

Updated to include WordPress 3.5.x and the new QuickInstall method of installing WordPress

Building a website was once the domain of computer geeks. Not any more. WordPress makes it possible for anyone to create and run a professional looking website.

While WordPress is an amazing tool, the truth is it does have a steep learning curve, even if you have built websites before. Therefore, the goal of this book is to take anyone, even a complete beginner and get them building a professional looking website. I’ll hold your hand, step-by-step, all the way.

As I was planning this book, I made one decision early on. I wanted to use screenshots of everything, so the reader wasn’t left looking for something on their screen that I was describing in text. This book has screenshots. I haven’t counted them all, but it must be close to 300. These screenshots will help you find the things I am talking about. They’ll help you check your settings and options against the screenshot of mine. No more doubt, no more wondering if you have it correct. Look, compare and move on to the next section.

With so many screenshots, you may be worried that the text might be a little on the skimpy side. No need to worry there. I have described in the minutest detail, every step on your journey to a great looking website. In all, this book has over 35,000 words.

This book will cut your learning curve associated with WordPress

Every chapter of the book ends with a “Tasks to Complete” section. By completing these tasks, you’ll not only become proficient at using WordPress, you’ll become confident & enjoy using WordPress.

    Wow! From someone who is not a beginner to WordPress Wow! I am not new to WordPress but I love this book. The three things that are super helpful to me are:1. The extensive table of contents – sometimes I am not sure about something I am trying to do in WordPress. The table of contents lets me drill down to see if Dr. Andy has a solution for the particular task I am trying to accomplish.2. The pictures or screen shots – I am a visual person.3. I get to see which plug ins Dr Andy sees value in. This helps with the overall strategy of building a successful site.

    Definately the go-to guide! I’ve been doing websites for a few years in Dreamweaver and when I needed to build another brand new site I wanted to update to another format. Tried Joomla and then decided on WordPress. I watched the video tutorials on utube, bought a couple of ‘complete instruction’ books and started trying to create that website. Since WordPress is a pretty easy format to get started on, I was able to make some progress. Then I found WordPress for Beginners and WOW – my progress took off. Having a visual guide with extensive photos really helps those of us who are visual learners. But the best thing to me is that Williams not only describes what to do and how to do it, he explains why you should do it. I’m not a professional tech person and this book is exactly what I needed. I suspect I will continue to refer to it in the future. Highly recommended.

    Excellent step by step for beginners like me!! I have literally been toying with building a site for months!!!…I am hosted by Host Gator and have forwarding URL’s, etc. but do not have an active site because I didn’t have the confidence to create a site. I contemplated spending a couple thousand dollars on someone else building my site but there’s never a guarantee it will come out the way you want it and unless you know what your looking at, you will never know what they built behind the scenes to maximize your site. I still consider myself a beginner but Andy has given me the confidence to build a site and hopefully many more but more importantly I feel comfortable working in the dashboard and knowing whats going to make my site not only run smooth, be protected and be recognized by the Top Search Engines. Andy I can’t Thank you enough!!
