Posted on June 26, 2013 by Blog Design Journal

Do you want to build your own website but don’t know where to start?
Have you been put off by all the jargon and gobbledygook of other Internet guides? If so then this plain, easy WordPress tutorial is the ideal place to start.

Now a #1 Amazon Best Seller on Kindle Books, this popular, up-to-date, step-by-step guide by expert Sarah McHarry will walk you through the essential first steps to building your own website or blog using WordPress.

In eight easy lessons you will have your own website up and running – without needing to know any geeky computer code! And, in the remaining 12 lessons, you’ll learn all you need to know about creating a website and making it into your own, unique, web presence.

What you’ll learn in this book:

  • How to register your own domain and get the right WordPress hosting
  • How to install WordPress with a few clicks of the mouse
  • How to design a professional-looking website
  • How to add and format your content
  • How to use graphics and images
  • All about themes, plugins, widgets and other WordPress tools
  • … and lots more..

If you want to make a website that looks like it was designed by a pro then WordPress is the ideal tool to use.

Designing a website need not be difficult or expensive if you have the right guidance. Sarah’s WordPress tutorial walks you through creating a website yourself using step-by-step lessons that are easy to follow. Making a website as a beginner has never been easier!

Why should you build your own website on your own domain instead of using a free service?
The answer is that, with your own privately registered domain and hosting account, YOU own and control the website, not anybody else. You can put whatever you like on your site and no-one can tell you otherwise. You can make your site look and behave how you like. You’re the boss.

And, with your own website, you can build your own distinctive ‘brand’, whether you are a business or a community group, an individual, or whatever… Your domain becomes your own exclusive web address, your own piece of online virtual ‘real estate’ that plays its part in publicizing your mission or message. Creating a website on your own domain gives you identity, visibility and, indeed, status.

But don’t you need a professional web designer to make a good job building a website?

No, definitely not! This was the case in the early days of the Internet because only a few tech-savvy geeks knew and understood the computer language (HTML) required. But as the technology has advanced, so have the tools to build websites become more accessible. WordPress is one of these tools and WordPress is the subject of this e-book.

But how much does it cost to make a website?

The answer is just a few bucks per month for hosting. If you create your own website using WordPress, you don’t have to spend another cent.

And what if you’re looking to start a blog?

Well, the same instructions apply. WordPress was originally designed as a blogging platform and this ebook shows you just how to build a blog using the same techniques as designing a website.

Whether you want to create a simple WordPress blog or design a full-blown ecommerce site, Sarah’s ‘WordPress To Go’ will start you off on the right foot.

    A Great No-Frills Introduction To WordPress – Perfect For Any Newb I use WordPress almost daily.All of my websites are built using WordPress, I have built the overwhelming majority of my freelance clients websites over the years with WordPress, and at my day job I am the principal web person responsible for more than 30 company websites (more than 90% I have built with WordPress) – so I grabbed this book just out of sheer curiosity – and as a guide for bringing a beginner up-to-speed on managing a website built with WordPress, it is great.I use this book to help get the interns and content writers/managers who work under me at my day job acclimated to WordPress so that they are able to take the sites I have built and use them without hesitation or mistake. None have complained, and now use the basic functions of WordPress like old pros.Now, if you are looking for a guide that will help you do things like create custom themes using your own HTML/PHP/CSS code, or integrate some features and functions that are not available strictly through the “intended” usage of WordPress and various plugins, then no, this book is not for you (you will need one – or several – far more advanced and expensive guides) – but if you are just getting started with WordPress and want to bring yourself up to speed on using it quickly and efficiently, then I highly recommend that this be your first resource.

    What I needed to get my site up and running I already had a basic website with my own domain name, but I was not happy with the format, as I found it clunky, limiting, and difficult to update. After doing some research, I decided to go with WordPress as my new format, and I switched over with my web host. I’m an artist, not a techie…although I have had experience with three other blogging formats and I’ve had an HTML class. I wanted to create a better looking website, as well as an accompanying blog within the site. I wanted to be able to easily change and update my web content. I also didn’t want to waste a bunch of time and frustration by doing a lot of online research into free tutorials. I wanted a simple tutorial that would basically take me by the virtual hand and lead me through the steps required to make my dream a reality, without having to know or do a lot of technical computer stuff.With the help of the author and the theme WPFolio, I was able to create a simple, clean, effective site to showcase my work. It’s easy to navigate, and so far it’s working with various devices, such as the iPhone. After I had downloaded WordPress with the help of my web host, I felt very overwhelmed, and I didn’t know where to start. This publication was easy to read, easy to understand, and it helped me get an attractive and functional artist site up and running in less than 24 hours. If you are a complete beginner to WordPress, this will save you a lot of time and frustration.

    A Must-Have For Any WordPress Newbie I’ve been using WordPress for a long time, but still picked up a couple good tips from this book. It is short, straightforward and to the point. She leads you through everything you need to know to set up your blog quickly and in a nice step-by-step manner. She breaks the book up into 2 parts- a Quick Start guide and an In-Depth guide, which makes it especially nice for someone new to WordPress to get started right away. The In-Depth section is essential if you really want to make your WP blog do more fancy things. It’s also good to review back later after you’ve set up your blog. The In-Depth section goes into things like selecting and installing a theme, adding pictures, galleries, posting, widgets and plugins, contact forms and even SEO (search engine optimization). Overall I enjoyed it and highly recommend it for anyone brand new to WordPress.
