It took me a while but I finally created my own webpage. I am the type of person that doesn’t just jump into something without learning a bit about it first. In this particular case I applied my usual method of learning something new.
First see if you can find a real person who is an expert in what you want to learn. In my case I was fortunate to find a class being taught after work in my area on WordPress 101 taught by Adam Silver. It was great to learn from someone who is clearly passionate about using WordPress and having a class room of other like minded individuals was another bonus in that if you can sit in and hear others asking questions it provides more opportunities to learn.
My second step was to find an online video based course I could take at my own pace. The after work class was a great start but I wanted something more so I signed up to an online course Create, Update and Manage Your Own Website Using WordPress by Kathleen Farley. After a few weeks of going through this at my own pace I’m happy to say I’ve finished it and have now taken the plunge into getting content onto my website.
This is the first course on Udemy that I actually completed, needless to say I highly recommend it.
