In this workshop, Anne Madison of Atelier Adornments will be walking attendees through the steps to set up their own Wordpress Blog presence.
We all know the benefits of maintaining a blog. Having one on your own commercial website can return big dividends in terms of flexibility, independence, and prestige. You don't have to be a programmer to install a commercial blog, and you don't have to be a graphic designer to make it your own. During this session, we're going to look at Wordpress. We'll install and configure a Wordpress blog, select and install one of the many Wordpress themes, and make it our own with some simple graphics. We'll cover some easy, yet bulletproof, security tricks. And we'll end by covering what you need to know to care for, and feed, your brand new Wordpress blog so that it remains healthy and hacker-free. Bring some jotting stuff, your own laptop (if you like), and all your questions. You'll go home with a CD covering what we've discussed during our session.
