    Informative and easy to follow guide I have experience with both WordPress and Blogger blogging platforms. I have helped several non-techie friends to start their own blogs. When I received a request from the author to review this book from the perspective of an experienced blogger my goal was to see whether the book covered everything I would expect it to cover as well whether it was written in a way that it would be understood by people who are not software engineers.Overall, I think the author has succeeded achieving both goals. The instructions are detailed, simple to understand, and written in a friendly conversation tone. She explains terminology, provides examples, and even provides a web site where she is willing to answer questions that the book has not answered.The book covers a lot of topics from basic set up to optimization of performance. You will not need to read the book cover to cover to get started. You can gradually improve your site by learning additional chapters. I really liked the cheat sheet at the end of the book “A website in 10 minutes” – it is always rewarding to get something working fast and then come back and tune various things as you learn more and more.If there was one thing that I would have liked to see in the book which is not there is the comparison of WordPress to Blogger pointing how they are different and why someone might choose one over the other.Overall, if you want to become a WordPress expert this is a great place to start.Ali Julia review

    Unbeatable Beginners Guide I’ve been using WordPress to build client sites for a few years now, but a number of them have asked me if I could train them to update the sites themselves, and I just don’t have the time – and certainly not the patience. That’s where this book saves the day – all my clients will be getting their very own copy!Stoked About WordPress is an excellent non-techie (wherever possible) guide for all total newbies to setup, build, design and maintain WP sites. Not only that, but it has links to free downloads, interactive FAQs and the option to email the author direct with ANY questions on WordPress – unbeatable value for money!
