Learning WordPress with VA Support Pro

I had a very productive day today.

Last year, I wrote about Learning WordPress, a workshop run by my good friends Marge Aberasturi of The Happy Wahm and Jennyfer Ang Tan of The Techie Mom. After gettng so many requests from bloggers to have a rerun, this is now their 3rd rerun of the workshop. I’m so glad I was finally able to attend it because I learned so much.

Jenn and Marge together make up VA Support Pro - an offsite office support and consulting service. Jenn takes care of the techie stuff and Marge takes care of the rest. Both are professional virtual assistants and have pooled their knowledge about WordPress to teach us newbies about running our own sites.

We had so many “Aha!” moments it was actually fun! Now I know more about using plug ins, widgets, customizing my theme, adding media and adding all that meta stuff.

This post is to demo just a few of the things I learned today. I hope that the next workshop they give is WordPress 201!


Getting to Know WordPress – A Workshop and GIVEAWAY

Everyday I work on this blog to make it work better. When I say ‘work’ I do mean I’m working on learning WordPress better so that I can maximize it to its fullest. So far, I have learned how to install a few widgets and plugins… and that’s just about what I’ve been able to do. I am trying to figure out how to install my Facebook fan page, how to use the sidebar and so many other things that I want to do.

Of course, doing an internet search is easy. When I searched for “How to Install Facebook Fan Box on WordPress”, Google returned almost 2 million results. I love to learn new things and I believe there is nothing I don’t know about that I can’t possibly Google. However, I am already spending more hours learning how to work WordPress than blogging!

Wouldn’t it be wiser to just attend a class where all you need to know is laid out for you and taught in layman’s terms? Wouldn’t it save you more time and energy if you just spend a day learning the technical aspects of WordPress from two women who are known for their technical skills online? Wouldn’t it be great to get together with other like-minded individuals and learn something new together?

Learning wordpress, work at home moms, workshop, giveaways

Okay, okay. I know I wrote about this on my last post. But I implore your patience and ask you to read on. The GIVEAWAY is coming! Smile

Marge and Jenn are just so passionate about teaching WordPress to us newbies that they decided to offer this workshop at a very low rate of P1,500. Considering that you’ll be learning the technical aspects of WordPress in an airconditioned room with free flowing coffee and a stable wifi connection, this is a reasonable price to pay. Marge and Jenn will be holding our hands (well, figuratively) and taking us through WordPress so that at the end of the day, we are armed with knowledge and skills on how we can make our sites work better. We busy work at home moms and dads need to find ways to work better and faster. Even if that means paying a small price, the returns on our time and efficiency will be infinitely greater. Also, if your homeschooled kids want to blog on WordPress, you can send them over, too. If you want to know more and are ready to register, visit The Happy Wahm’s blog for more details.
