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.

Learning to Use WordPress

So, as I have described in my last blog post, I am still very new to WordPress.

It took me about 8 long hours to get my site up and running, set up the plugins I like, set up my social media buttons and write my first blog. It’s exciting for me to learn new things but also hard. I’m plugging along, though, because I am absolutely determined to work with WordPress and experience the bliss that ALL most of my blogger friends describe.

Now that my site is up, I look at it and think “There are still so many things it needs.” There are still so many I have to learn about WordPress. I read somewhere that once you know WordPress, there are just so many, many things that you can do with it. The big question is, ” Do I have the time to search and read through all the info about WordPress?” I’m a pretty busy mommy of four, working from home and outside the home, homeschooling and without a helper. The solution?


Getting To Know WordPress My friends, The Happy WAHM and The Techie Mom are holding a WordPress workshop to teach us WordPress newbies how to maximize it. They’ll be there to teach us, to hold our hands as we work on our sites and make sure that at the end of the day, we all understand it.
